DubaiBest Activities to Do in Dubai and its Environs

Dubai is a city noted for its lucrative opportunities, vibrant nightlife, and stunning architecture. Encircled on one side by arid sand and searing sun, and on the other by the stunning Persian Gulf and its miles of sparkling water, this wealthy metropolis is located in the heart of the Arabian Desert. 

Revealing to be an oasis in the midst of deserts, sand, and seas, this city is bustling with activity. Visit many of the city’s spectacular modern and historical attractions, you may stay in Dubai at the fabulous H Dubai Hotel. The hotel is just a few minutes away from a lot of Dubai’s attractions.  So you can focus on your wonderful vacation, we’ve narrowed down the options to these Incredible Things To Do in and around Dubai.  

Dubai Mall

The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest retail mall, is open to anybody who wants to go shopping or even window shopping. There is really something for everyone with over 1,200 different stores (along with the Dubai Fountain). The mall attracts around 100 million people each year as a result of this. It’s the size of two football fields combined, with an ice rink and an aquarium thrown in for good measure.

Ski Dubai 

Surprisingly, skiing in Dubai is a popular activity. A lot of tourists come here.  Visitors can ski, snowboard, and even go tobogganing at Ski Dubai, which is completely indoors. The park rents everything, including instructors for any snow bunnies in your group, so there’s no reason to bring your own snowboard or skis.

Burj Khalifa

Towering over all other tall structures with a height of more than 828 meters, this skyscraper is the world’s highest. This is just a few minutes away from the H Dubai Hotel, one of the best hotels in Dubai. The Burj Khalifa also offers the world’s longest elevator ride, since it is the world’s tallest structure. Get inside and make this very fast lift whisk you to the observation deck on level 124. Providing a stunning unobstructed view of Dubai and the surrounding desert and ocean, glass walls run the length of the observation deck. 

The Dubai Fountain 

The world’s largest choreographed dancing water fountain is also located in Dubai. In sync with the music, the Dubai Fountain is a water fountain that shoots water into the sky. Every 30 minutes, it puts on shows in the afternoon and evening. The fountain is 900 feet long and sprays water up to 500 feet high, with five various diameter circles. At night, this is a must-see.

Palm Jumeirah

The Palm Jumeirah, the world’s biggest man-made island, has been dubbed the “Eighth Wonder of the World” due to its occasionally contentious nature. Beaches, marinas, restaurants, and a range of shopping establishments, in addition to villas and apartments, are sure to overwhelm your Instagram posts. Visiting this place is definitely a must in Dubai’s things to do.

Al Bastakiya

Al Bastakiya, one of Dubai’s earliest residential areas, has become a museum in and of itself. It is Dubai’s historic quarter, where travelers can see antique architecture that winds through the classic, small lanes. It was founded towards the end of the nineteenth century.

Safa Park

Safa Park, the city’s most popular outdoor park, is one of Dubai’s largest and oldest green spaces. It has a small waterfall, a lake with little boats floating on it, and bicycles for rent.


Flyboarding, one of Dubai’s most popular sports, was conceived by French jet-ski designer Franky Zapata. If you dare, it’s an incredible sport.


Do you want a once-in-a-lifetime experience? The answer is skydiving in Dubai. This is a one-of-a-kind adventure, whether you’re a first-time daredevil (which is done in pairs) or a seasoned jumper. One in Dubai’s downtown area and the other in the desert, Skydive Dubai offers two venues. You don’t want to jump, but you’d like to see what’s going on? In both locations, the SkyDive Dubai Café provides a place to unwind, enjoy a drink, and watch the drop. 

Persian Cuisine 

Dubai also has some of the best Persian cuisines in the world. Your options for the Best Dining In Dubai are infinite, from skewers to platters. 

Gold Souk 

When in Dubai, you must go to the Gold Souk. The traditional market is lined with gleaming gold, with vendors selling the precious metal in a variety of shapes and sizes. Fakes aren’t a problem. Ensuring that whatever you purchase is legal, the government maintains strict quality control. Bargaining is a must!

Dubai Museum 

The Al Fahidi Fort, which was completed in 1787 and is Dubai’s oldest edifice, houses the Dubai Museum. From a tiny fishing hamlet to a wealthy and glamorous worldwide commercial hub, this museum depicts Dubai’s transformation. Complete with a life-size diorama of pearl divers, one of the interesting displays depicts Dubai’s previously lucrative pearl diving industry.
