When speaking about the best tourist destinations, the name of Dubai makes it to the top. It is unarguably a tourist hotspot with a ton of activities and spectacular sites. However, the question is that if you are in the wonderful city of Dubai for only a day, then how you can make the most of your time. Well! In this post, we got the answer covered for you. Below are some of the major options that definitely deserve a spot on your one-day itinerary for Dubai.
- Experience the city from the top
Even if you are in Dubai for a few hours and time permits, then checking out the city from the top of the Burj Khalifa is a must. From level 148 of the Burj Khalifa, you can catch the panoramic view of the city whilst you are standing on the highest outdoor observation deck in the world. Do not forget to take a snap of yourself when at the top.
- Dhow Dinner Cruise
A dhow is a refurbished wooden boat, traditionally utilized for fishing; which now acts as a floating restaurant. The charm of enjoying the delicious food, live singing, and dancing performances while sailing across the water experiencing the amazing skyline of Dubai is unparalleled and unequaled. There is two options for you to select from viz Dhow Cruise Dubai Marina and Dhow Cruise Dubai Creek. The Dubai Marina Dhow Cruise takes you through the modern sections of the city with the illuminated skyscrapers adorning the skyline. However, if you wish to witness the rich cultural heritage of Dubai then the Dubai Creek Dhow Cruise is the one for you as it takes you through the old section of the city.
- Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour on the Big Bus
Covering more than 40 sites including the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Mosque, Spice Souk, and more; the Big Bus Sightseeing Tour covers more than you can do by yourself in less than a day. The open-top bus tour will cover a lot of action for you provided you can start your one day in Dubai a wee early.
- Indoor Ski Resort
The Ski Dubai Indoor Ski Resort is the largest in the Middle East. So, if you desire to enjoy tons of snow, skiing, and penguins in Dubai, then Ski Dubai is the place you must head to. Even if you don’t have the luxury of time to opt for a beginner ski lesson, you can always enjoy the action here. If you are with kids, then you can take them to the penguin petting session and have a blast on the snowy playground.
- Lost Chambers Aquarium
If you wish to get close to a variety of marine animals, then your next stop should be the Lost Chambers Aquarium at Atlantis the Palm Resort. The aquarium, apart from taking you close to the diverse marine habitat, hosts a live show as well in which the scuba divers inspect the animals and charm the visitors with the live feeding action.
These are some of the major activities and sites that you must add to your one-day Dubai itinerary. Plan well in advance and have a blast during your one-day stay in the amazing city.
