There is a delicate balance of new and old in Dubai, resulting in a smorgasbord of things to do. You can enjoy your mornings sprawling out along Jumeirah Beach and your afternoons at Ski Dubai. Or you can start your day bargaining at the traditional Gold and Spice Souks before exercising your credit card at the contemporary Dubai Mall. But first thing’s first, let’s get to know about the thrilling things to do in Dubai.

To list all of Dubai’s attractions in one shot would be a never-ending task, so instead we’ve picked the best of the bunch that should be on your Dubai trip. Take a look!

Your Dubai holiday is incomplete without watching The Palm Islands – three artificial islands Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jebel Ali and Deira Island – on its coast. However, your holiday in Dubai is valueless, if you do not watch the islands while falling from an altitude of 14,000 feet above sea level. Yes, you read it right! Skydiving over The Palm is the best decision you’ll ever make!


Love speed? Accomplish your desire of speeding against the winds like Paul Walker at Dubai’s dune! Dubai was erected on a desert – so why not taste its root? You will be sitting in an SUV behind the steering wheel. As you move to the 4th gear and hit the sand, and you keep gushing through, racing for your life – “Fast and Furious”!


Hundreds of kilograms, 300 razor sharp teeth and you in one chamber, face to face – ARE YOU GAME?

Scuba Diving is a very popular water sport. However, shark diving is a rather rare and far more exciting one in comparison. The Dubai Mall offers the chance to dive with the world’s deadliest predators – the sharks.  


Being a shoreline city, Dubai is famous to be one of the biggest sailfish destinations in the world. Deep sea fishing is an important part of the Arabic culture, not only because of the people’s liking with fish as a dish but also because of the adventure that is grasping fish from the centre of the sea.


Strap in, put your safety glasses on and prepare to be blasted 240km/h in 4.9 seconds on the world’s fastest rollercoaster. After transcending heart-racing heights of 52 metres and with the adrenaline rush of 4.8Gs riding high, you’ll cross the finish feeling like a true Scuderia Ferrari champion. 


Hot Air Ballooning in Dubai has seen its footprints grow progressively in the past few years. Nowadays, a much-loved activity amongst those visiting Dubai, hot air balloon rides have slowly seen their popularity rise from an activity for the indulgent to an activity that anyone can participate in. Flying 4,000 feet above the desert ground gives one an eccentric vantage point to view desert on one side and the Persian Gulf on the other with a modern Dubai in between.
