Welcome to the magical UAE! The capital Dubai is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Dubai is an International travel hub, it’s worth staying beyond the layover. Almost every major Airline in the world stops in Dubai, but if you’re traveling on a budget, I recommend to look up for flydubai tickets in advance to assure the best airfares.


The UAE gives a lot of options for water sports and adventures for its visitors as well as the residents. Also, the Desert is something which you should not miss at all! The Dubai desert has a lot to offer beyond one's imagination.


Let's have a look at the top outdoor activities in Dubai, which you can try on your next trip to the UAE.



Desert Safari

Dubai has become the first choice of many people from across the globe who want to experience the amazing desert safari. It has so much to offer from quad biking, dune bashing, camel riding, sand boarding, and a lot more. You will have a great time with delectable cuisines and get a chance to meet people from other countries and cultural backgrounds. The desert safari packages have food, drinks, and entertainment that shouldn’t be missed at all.


Expect to witness red dunes as far as eyes can see. They will turn color and become golden during sunset, which is an amazing sight in the desert.


After the adrenaline rush, head to the traditional Bedouin camps to relax and enjoy a glass of tea. These camps are built to resemble the ancient settlements in the desert. Entertainment shows in a desert safari include live dance performances like Tanoura and Belly dance. Tanoura is an Egyptian folk dance performed by a male artist wearing a colorful skirt.



Dhow Cruise

Dubai has a beautiful coastline which is around 520 km in length including the three palm islands and is incredibly neat and clean. You can explore the warm waters of Dubai by various means. Try the dhow cruise which is a traditional wooden cruise brilliantly festooned. The Dubai marina is a famous area where you can get a wide variety of dhow cruises. The dhow cruise Dubai marina will surely be an experience of a lifetime. It’s also a brilliant idea for celebrating birthday parties, family get together and a lot of other celebrations.


The Dubai marina is a fascinating place with glittering tall buildings and beautiful canals. You will have a nice time with world-class food and chilled drinks, imagine a floating restaurant that provides a five-star buffet and live entertainment to the guests. Songs good, right?




Have you ever dreamt of sailing on a mega yacht along a luxurious skyline? It’s time to live the dream in all its glory.


There are several locations in Dubai where you can board a fancy yacht, but the best is along the marina. The best part of the marina is its views which are spectacular and you won’t find them anywhere else. From the tall mesmerizing skyscrapers to the yachts and so many other things it all adds up to the whole experience of yachting. You can enjoy an astounding sunset on the yacht and store it in your memories for a lifetime.


The privacy and comfort that these yachts provide are irreplaceable. Mega yachts will have master bedrooms, spacious lounges, sundeck, Jacuzzis, dance floors, washrooms, and a kitchen, offering mouth-watering food, soft drinks and even BBQ onboard.


Yachts are exceptional party venues, as you can't imagine a better way to impress your guests. The daring ones can try water sports to feel the adrenaline rush. The perk of hiring a yacht is that they will give you complimentary equipment for all water activities, such as swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving.


I hope you’ll include all these fun activities and sights in your next trip to Dubai and enjoy your vacation to the fullest. Happy travels!
