Dubai is the city of extremes – biggest, fastest, tallest, nicest! And we are so excited to be able to be part of the booming tourism industry of this fascinating and exotic part of the world! Dubai has finally entered the SeaBookings family, offering you the best options to explore this amazing place by boat! Let’s find out what the 5 best things to do in Dubai are, shall we?
Given the location by the Persian Gulf and the warm temperatures of both water and air during the whole year, it is no question that one of the best things to do is a boat tour! Or, to keep the exclusive character of this region, for a nice luxurious tour on a yacht in Dubai!
Did you know that the best time to visit Dubai is during Winter? That’s when you have temperatures not too hot so that you can still be outside and enjoy the city under the sun! And the water temperatures are very nice all year round, with temperatures always around 20-25°. Sounds good? We certainly think so and reckon the best way to spend your days here is with a boat tour in Dubai!
To give you some ideas of what to do, we have created our list of the 5 best things to do in Dubai!
As you may have guessed, most of them have to do with the sea. After all, we just love getting you out there on the big blue!
5 best things to do in Dubai
1. Burj Khalifa
Yes, we do love the sea. But we can’t just ignore the fact that Dubai also has some other great things to offer. So let’s start our list of the 5 experiences with the tallest skyscraper in the world – the Burj Khalifa!
During your stay in Dubai, you most definitely have to at least pass in front of the Burj Khalifa and breathe in the air of pure luxury!
The water show is a must while visiting Burj Khalifa and the huge shopping mall.
Inside the Burj Khalifa you’ll also find the only 7-Star Hotel in the world and undeniably a place of pure style and exclusivity. To see this building in real life is definitely one of the best things to do.
Okay, okay we know that this was to be expected that we like the Dubai Marina. But in this case, it’s not just us! In fact, a visit to the Dubai Marina is one of the 5 best things to do for everybody!
It’s one of the main tourist attractions of the city. Docked on this impressive and super modern Marina you’ll find so many beautiful yachts like almost nowhere else in the world.
But the Dubai Marina has many more things to offer than only some of the nicest boat tours you’ll ever do! At the Marina, you’ll find numerous high-class restaurants, shops and many other entertainment possibilities.
Start the day with a nice brunch, go for a boat cruise, then for a nice walk and end it with a fancy drink at Pure Sky Lounge for example. There goes your perfect day in Dubai!
Next up on our list of the 5 best things to do is the famous Dubai Creek. It is a water canal that separates the city from Deira in the North and Bur Dubai in the South.
The Dubai Creek is one of the 5 best things to do because it has been the lifeline of the city since before it became the global metropolitan city it is now.
Along the Old Creek is where all the fishing was done from, in the past even more so than today.
In recent years, it was extended to make it even more accessible and connect the main points of the city with one another through water – the perfect place for some fun boat tours! No wonder we think Dubai Creek is one of the 5 best things to do.
With average temperatures in Winter ranging between 25-35°C and in summer up to 45°C, some of you might want to spend some time at the beach, right?
The best beach in our opinion is definitely Jumeirah Beach, and also one of the 5 best things to do in Dubai!
Jumeirah Beach is just in between the Dubai Marina and the famous Palm Jumeirah. It is a white sand beach, just off the probably most popular district among travellers, which is Jumeirah.
The beach by the Persian Gulf invites for some sunbathing and a nice dip in the ocean. Certainly, the best way to cool off in this heat!
Last but most certainly not least is one of the main attractions- Palm Jumeirah! This is our personal favourite of the 5 best things to do in Dubai! It is the first one of the artificial palm islands just off the coast in Dubai. Palm Jumeirah is an architectural highlight that you simply must visit during your stay in Dubai.
The huge building is very close to the Marina, so on a boat tour you get to see both these highlights!
Palm Jumeirah is impressive in so many ways. First of all, of course, the construction itself is simply amazing. And when you see all the huge buildings on the island it makes you wonder how this could’ve been done by humans! To explore Palm Jumeirah during a boat tour in Dubai is our highlight of the 5 best things to do!
We hope you have a great time in this unique place called Dubai! For any further questions, just leave us a comment! We’re looking forward to have you on one of the boat tours in Dubai!
