Things to Do in Dubai - page 3
In Dubai, a hotel can be considered a top tourist attraction, and that’s certainly the case with the extravagant Atlantis, the Palm The 1,539-room, ocean-themed resort occupies the top portion of the crescent of land surrounding the man-made Palm Islands, just off the coast of Dubai, and it includes 42 acres (17 hectares) of amusement and entertainment space. Even if you’re not a resort guest, it’s worthwhile to spend a day enjoying everything it has to offer.
The Bedouin people are a desert-dwelling ethnic group found throughout the Arabian peninsula. Located in the dunes of the Dubai Desert far from any signs of permanent human habitation, Bedouin camps offer visitors a glimpse into what it might have been like for a Bedouin family trying to survive in the harsh desert landscape up until about 40 years ago.
The Dubai Cruise Terminal—situated about 7 miles (12 kilometers) from the center of old Dubai—serves as the gateway for cruise passengers taking shore excursions into the city and its surrounding desert. Also known as Port Rashid, the port boasts a modern and comfortable terminal, but nothing by way of visitor attractions, so new arrivals head straight off into the waiting metropolis.
Enjoy a dolphin and seal show, dolphin encounters, tropical bird shows, a mirror maze, trampolines, and more at Dubai Dolphinarium at Dubai’s Creek Park. The venue was the Middle East’s first indoor air-conditioned dolphinarium when it opened in 2008, and remains a popular Dubai attraction today.
Kids love Dubai’s many theme and water parks, and WonderLand is the biggest of them all in the UAE.

Keep the kids entertained and up-to-speed at Dubai Children’s City, where learning is fun for children aged two to 15 years old.

Just south of Dubai Creek in the Dubai Healthcare City district, the Wafi City Mall offers around 250 shops set inside a pyramid-roofed complex inspired by ancient Egypt. Visitors can enjoy everything from top brands to family entertainments, all in a building adorned with pharaonic statues, carvings, and stained glass.
Built in 1991 and revamped twice since, the BurJuman is one of Dubai’s oldest shopping malls but still popular for its ultraconvenient location in Bur Dubai, just south of Dubai Creek. Extending across four levels, the mall offers luxury and speciality stores, restaurants, and entertainments for all tastes.
