Hiring an off-road vehicle is becoming ever more popular with thrill-seekers and is a great way of exploring the surrounding desert. Most hotels can source reputable off-road car hire companies with knowledgeable guides. Why not emulate the many local Emiratis who adore driving over wadis or dried out river beds- this activity is known as ‘wadi-bashing!’ Just make sure buy insurance for travelling before you go!

The Arabs have a love of horsemanship that stretches for thousands of years, and the Dubai World Cup is the epitome of this passion. You will have an amazing time if you love horses, rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous and getting dressed up to the nines! Even if horse racing and gambling aren’t your favourite activities, there is still plenty to be enjoyed; the after race entertainment and general ambience is usually world-class.

  1. Visit a Souk

A souk is a tradition middle-Eastern marketplace, and the souks in Dubai are ideal places to try your hand at haggling with the market traders or simply absorb the compelling atmosphere of the crowded hubbub, with its sights, smells and sounds. The gold souk, in particular, is world-famous as a great place to grab a jewellery bargain or two.

  1. The BurjKhalifa

TheBurjKhalifa is, arguably, one of the world’s most iconic and beautiful buildings; one thing is for certain- it is the tallest, standing at 829.9 metres high. Located in Dubai, this building was completed in 2009. High-speed glass elevators rush you to ‘The Top’, where the state-of-the-art facilities of the observation deck make the experience as rewarding and unforgettable as possible.

Palm Jumeirah is a man-made archipelago just off the coast of Dubai (connected to the mainland by a monorail). Viewed from the air, it has the shape of a palm leave. Look out for it when flying into Dubai if you sit on the right-hand side of the plane! There are lots of popular tourist activities to do around the numerous resorts; highly recommended are staying in or simply admiring the spectacular Atlantis Hotel, with its dolphinarium, or spending the day on the wonderful beaches that are blessed with warm water and soft shingle.
