Top tips for a trip to Dubai

Visiting Dubai is a feast for the sights and the senses. An amazing blend of both old and new, Dubai will delight and dazzle all members of your traveling party – old and new alike. Whether you are on vacation with the kids or are having a romantic week away, Dubai offers something for everyone. With stunning sandy beaches, amazing shopping malls and incredible gold and spice souks waiting for you to explore, you may even struggle to fit it all in! So if you are planning a trip to Dubai, make sure that you check out at least one or two of the below attractions to make your holiday truly memorable.

Hit the Beach

Dubai is known for its crystal clear waters and long, clean sandy beaches. Head to Kite Beach and Jumeirah Open Beach if you want an option that isn’t too far out of town, meaning you will have to experience some of the hustle and bustle of city life. If you are tired of all the Vitamin D and fancy sitting in the shade, head to one of the city’s lush inner city parks. Creek Park is well worth a visit if you need a quick break from all that sunshine.

No trip to Dubai would be complete without you recording a family montage or video from your vacation, though. Whether you are a budding videographer or a YouTube pro, make sure that you check that you aren’t breaching any local laws if you do decide to film. Once your masterpiece is ready for editing, a free thumbnail maker can help you choose the exact still for your latest video. Meaning you have lasting memories to enjoy with the whole family when you get home.

Zone out             

If you want to truly stop and relax, then make sure you book yourself in for a spa visit during your trip to Dubai. From a traditional hammam to massage and facials, there are a whole range of options available depending on your time, budget and preference. For Ottoman opulence head to the Talise Spa at the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, while the Marriott and most other hotels will offer a range of onsite treatments to help you seriously chill out.

Haggle in the Souks

Dubai has long been known as a trading post, famed for its exotic gold and spices. So, if you fancy your chances at bagging a bargain, then be sure to head to one of the city’s local gold and spice souks. When bargaining, make sure that you choose a reasonable price and stick to it. However, if you fancy a more serene shopping experience, then the city’s Dubai Mall is home to hundreds of shops and boutique stores, with onsite entertainment and food courts too.

Bastakiya Quarter

This former fishing village, hidden amongst the tower blocks and high rise buildings is a must see if you want to truly experience both sides of this dynamic and diverse city. If you are easily overwhelmed, guided tours are available so that you can enjoy the sites without any trouble.

Dubai will delight and inspire you – have a fantastic vacation!
