If a trip to the Arabian Desert and the great city of Dubai is in the near future for you and your family, then you’re in for a treat. If you haven’t already filled your days with desert sun-loving, action-packed fun for you and your kids, then here are some of the best examples of things to do during your stay.
Hanging out in the Mediterranean is a great place to start. With the city resting on the edge of the Persian Gulf, what better way to experience what’s above and below the water than by deep-sea fishing?
With the desert sun shining on the water, you and your family can experience these waters from a local perspective and catch all sorts of fish such as Grouper, Snapper, Barracuda, or Kingfish.
Sandboarding in the Dubai Desert
One of the most exciting places to be in the Arabian desert isthe giant sand dunes. But what is even more exciting is sliding down them like you’re snowboarding, except its bright red sand andits warm.
Sandboarding in Dubai is a huge kick because the dunes reach up to 1000 feet in elevation as well as being a year-round activity. This makes your traveling plans work no matter the season. However, the best time is said to be between October and April.
If you’re looking for the biggest and the best, you’ll have to travel approximately 40 minutes from the city and up to the Big Red, the biggest dune in the Arabian Desert.These dunes have a rich iron-red color that shines like fire, illuminating the scenery in front of you.
You can set off on your own adventure with a camel ride across the dunes, too. There truly is no more realistic way to experience desert beauty than by trekking across the dunes on camelback.
With this truly desert experience, you will get to see what it was like for Persians to cross the sea of sand as their way of life had them, guided by their instinct and the position of the stars.
As you are riding, you will get a fantastic view of various wildlife like the Arabian Oryx or Tahr. You may even get the chance to be shaded by the date palms and acacia, desert flora that serves as an oasis from the sun.
For winter rides, they usually take off in the morning, while summer during the evening. As such, some tours may even take you out at night to see the vast cosmos open up before you and maybe even a full moon!
4×4 Safari Drive
For a more action-packed ride, the 4×4 Safari Drives will satisfy your thirst for adventure.
If you choose the self-drive ride, the tour guide will show you the way to some of the best dunes. With this option, you will be able to ride around at your disposal, experiencing the greatest adrenaline rush the desert has to offer.
If you’re looking to experience something casual, beautiful, and with the same if not more magical appeal than Disney World, then you definitely have to check out the Dubai Miracle Garden.
Each year from November to May, the 72,000 square meter garden is packed with fully-bloomed flower sculptures made of over 150 million flowers, letting you walk through a modern-day Garden of Eden.
In its 7th season, it has become the world’s largest natural flower garden. With walkways such as the Butterfly or Hearts Passages, you will be able to walk within the beautifully framed tunnels with more flowers over your head than you can imagine.
They also have other attractions such as Trampoline Park, which is a great way for kids to get out all their energy, as well as an amphitheater for special shows and events.
For a few more fun things to add to your list, you can also check out Kite Beach, Wild Wadi Waterpark, or even the Dubai Aquarium. All of these are sure to keep your family smiling and enjoying the great city of Dubai.
