Things to do in Dubai
The landscape is such that in a single day you can experience everything from rugged mountain climate to the beauty of the rolling desert dunes, and from the vibrancy of green parkland to the sparkling turqouise waters of the Arabian gulf.
An unmissable experience for your taste buds awaits you with the vibrant dining scene in Dubai. Food connoisseurs can experience genuine Arabic hospitability and sample the best of local and international cuisine.
The options for sightseeing and activities in Dubai are vast and varied. Whether you’re into superstructures or desert dunes, there is something to keep you entertained.
If you like to shop you are in the right place! There are endless options depending on what you are looking for, however, for an impressive, all under 1 roof experience, a trip to the Dubai Mall is recommended. It is after all the biggest in the world. If you can’t find what you’re looking for here, it probably doesn’t exist! You can reach the Dubai Mall from the Trade Center either by using the metro, or a short ride by taxi (approx. 3 Euro fee).
Some say that this city comes to life at night and there certainly is no shortage of options, ranging from intimate bars to unwind and chat to colleagues and new business contacts to energising clubs where you can really blow away the cobwebs!
