Dubai has been at the top of my travel wish list for as long as I can remember, the beautiful beaches, amazing shopping, wonderful culture and stunning architecture. It’s one of those countries that would suit any holiday goer.
The countless times I’ve planned my trip there only to remember it’s way out of our budget the first and definitely (for me) the best thing to do is see dolphins. (Obviously you can see them other places but this place looks incredible) they have so many packages from just watching to getting into the water and scuba diving with them!
The dolphin bay.
The prices range from around 100 to up to 400 so it’s pretty pricey! (This does give you access to the water park too if that helps?
Dubai has so many waterparks and if youre an adrenaline junkie you’ll be in your own little heaven. MM usually watches water slide videos online and so many amazing (scary) ones are there. Those trust fall drop ones… (eeek) the cost varies for different water parks but from mooching around online I’ve found out that Aquaventure let you in for free if it’s your birthday week!! Amazing. (Maybe double check it hasn’t changed if you’re going)
You can’t think about dubai and not think about the amazing markets you see so often on films (sex and the city for example) these are called souks and there’s so many different ones! They’re free to go have a look round but I’m sure you’ll end up buying something beautiful so maybe set yourself a budget before you head there.
If you want to see all that dubai has to offer you can go up the Burj Khalifa (think the shard of dubai) it has an observation deck which you can buy tickets to go view
After looking online I found out a place that is higher than the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa and totally FREE! The Jebel Hafeet, it’s the highest peak in the United Arab Emirates and you have to take a road trip to get to it but it sounds amazing. The views are pretty different though so you could do both.

Last on my list but certainly not least is the breathtaking desert. (Literally?) There’s so much to do there; camel rides, red dune bashing, sandboarding and 4×4 desert safaris. I’ve seen these around £30-£60 but it’s worth looking around for a deal.
There’s actually so many more incredible things to see and do in dubai this is just the tip of the ice burg.
Have you been to dubai or is it on your wishlist?
Until the next post,
