The Best Date Ideas in Dubai

February 10, 2022
2022-02-10
Dubai was never known as a romantic city, was it? It's a high-class metropolis and bustling business hub, but a romantic destination? Not exactly. Perhaps the city is just too busy and urban to be considered at par with the likes of Paris, Rome, Barcelona, and the like. Though Dubai is undoubtedly beautiful in its own right, it doesn't have as much history and heritage to merit an overflow of emotions. Nevertheless, this doesn't mean that couples can't have a good time here. On the contrary, Dubai offers a ton of great date ideas that can be just as romantic, if not even more so, than if you were in other cities.

The Best Date Ideas in Dubai


Date in The Desert

Since Dubai is such a crowded city, you'll want to hold your date somewhere quiet and peaceful. So what better place to do it than in the desert? Here, you can spend as much quality time with your special someone as you want and no one will disturb you. And if you further into the desert, you'll feel as if you're the only two people left in the world. Sounds romantic, doesn't it? You'll likely have more privacy here than in your own luxury home in Dubai. That's how perfect the desert is for a romantic rendezvous.

Go Glamping By The Dunes

Since you're already in the desert, why not go glamping here as well? Though most of the others would go camping in the Dubai desert, you can leave that with the families and groups of friends. To really enjoy each other's company here, glamping in this vast expanse of sun and sand is much more suitable. So before heading off to the desert, make sure you packed everything you need for a luxurious trip. And even if you don't have all that stuff, there are plenty of businesses that offer glamping in the Dubai desert. They'll provide you with everything you need.

Spend Time Under The Stars

Whether you're glamping, camping, or simply enjoying a candlelit dinner in the desert, don't forget to look up into the stars. Stargazing has always been a great date idea no matter where you are but it's particularly better here in Dubai. If you're in the desert, you won't have city lights and other illuminations obstructing your view. You can see all the twinkling stars in all their glory from here. And if you're still in the city, you can always go to the top of its many skyscrapers for a closer view. Whichever you go for, your eyes will sparkle just as brightly as the stars above.

Ride a Hot Air Balloon

Why settle looking up into the sky when you can actually fly high up there yourself? A common tourist attraction in Dubai, specifically in the Dubai desert, is the hot air balloon. You won't just get to see them fly about, looking as enchanting as ever against the vast sand-filled land, but there are also plenty of services here that allow you actually ride them too. Just imagine seeing the desert and the city from afar from a bird's eye view. That is one memorable experience you and your significant other won't ever forget. It might even be your best date ever!

Go on a Sunset Cruise

Going back to the actual Dubai city, another great idea that you and your partner can do is to go on a sunset cruise. There are two places here that you can sail on: the Persian Gulf by the coast of the city and the Dubai creek that flows in-between the different neighborhoods. If you go for the former, you get to enjoy an astonishing view of the sunset with the famous Dubai skyline in the background. While if you go for the latter, you get to watch all the hustle and bustle nearby as you bathe in the golden glows of the twilight.

Visit The Tallest Building in The World

The Burj Khalifa, which stands at 2,722 feet high, is known as the tallest man-made building in the world. It's also Dubai's centerpiece, particularly during New Year's Eve when it lights up with an astounding fireworks display. Seeing it in person will already take your breath away, but what if you actually go inside? With so many restaurants, bars, and even an observation deck on offer, there's so much to look forward to in the Burj Khalifa. And as far as going on a date here is concerned, going up to the top-most floors of the skyscraper lets you see one of the most magnificent views in the world.

Take Pottery Classes Together

If you've watched the 1990 comedy film 'Ghost' starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, and Whoopi Goldberg, you'll know that taking a pottery class together is quite the steamy date idea. However, since you're in Dubai, one of the main cities in the ever-so-conservative United Arab Emirates, you can't exactly be as lovey-dovey here as Swayze and Moore were in the movie. Nevertheless, spending time together by learning how to make pottery remains pretty romantic. There are many places throughout the city that offer classes, some of which even have promos for couples who enroll together.

Go Skiing

Out of so many things you can do in Dubai, skiing is probably the last thing you expected! But it's true, you can actually go skiing in this Middle Eastern city! Ski Dubai is an indoor ski resort located in the Al Barsha 1 district. It offers 22,500 square meters of artificial snow and is just as cold as the real thing. So when it gets too hot in Dubai—which it usually does!—there's no other place more suited for your date than here! You don't even have to be experienced skiers to join in the fun. The place also offers lessons to novices.
