What To Do in A Day in Dubai

August 05, 2020
Dubai is a city you simply couldn't explore in one day. A whole '24 hours' isn't enough to really get to know this beautiful first-class advanced city. However, if you only really have just a day to spend here, there's at least a handful of activities to do that's fun, exciting, and will make you a lot of memories. They range from climbing up the tallest man-made structure in the world to shopping where exotic fish swim by. They all sound impossible, right? Well, here in Dubai, they're more than possible and you'll enjoy each one!

Go on a Hop-On Hop-Off Big Bus Sightseeing Tour

Of course, when you only have one day to spend in Dubai, you'd rather tour the city around instead of just spending time in one place. Though you won't see all of Dubai, at least you could say you saw a great deal to get the gist of the city. And this is very much possible with the hop-on-hop-off buses. Not only are they a great public transport system, but they also hold tours for those who want to see the city and back. And just as the name suggests, you don't need a reservation to hop on.

Explore the Dubai Mall

One of the biggest complexes in the entire city, the Dubai Mall will definitely keep you busy for a good 24 hours! Miles and miles of luxury shopping and high-street bargain-hunting for any budget. Rows of restaurants and fast-food places to keep you nourished and refreshed. And a beautiful interior structure to boot! Not to mention a stunning aquarium that lets you see all kinds of exotic colorful fish, making the shopping experience all the more memorable! There's no other mall quite like it anywhere in the world, and if you're doubtful of that fact, name another mall with a giant skeletal sculpture of a dinosaur that welcomes shoppers by the entrance!

Tour Dubai's Famous Palm Islands

Up for a cruise? Well, if you are, there's no other place better for it than at the iconic Palm Islands of Dubai. This man-made archipelago that's become a famous spot in the entire world actually has a cruise that gets you from one island to another. Here, you get to see what makes this place so special, from the dazzling communities, awesome shopping, and a boatload of great culinary hotspots. You'd probably even wish that you can spend more days in Dubai just so you can stay in any of these islands! But for now, a tour around them is more than enough!

Visit the Top of Burj Khalifa

The Burj Khalifa is so tall—829.8 meters and 2,772 feet high—that you really will need a whole day to get to the top. Or at least the majority of the day. that's why just visiting the place is already a one-day activity in Dubai. You'll see practically the entire city once you get up to the higher stories of the structure. In fact, you might even see planes flying at face value! Though if you're not an adrenaline junkie that you'd go all the way to the top, even its lower floors has some nice restaurants and commercial spaces where you can simply hang inside the historic and iconic building.

Experience the Cold at Ski Dubai

When you think of Skiing, you probably think of places like Switzerland or Canada. But, there's actually a place in Dubai where you can get your ski on too! Ski Dubai is an indoor ski resort in the city. Yes, amidst the Middle Eastern heat is this snowy, ice-cold spot where you can ski, snowboard, and build snowmen to your heart's content. And don't worry about not having the right equipment—they'll provide you some here. Though you are better off buying some winter gear yourself in the nearby mall to keep you warm inside the space.

Swim at The Beach (JBR)

Or you could go the complete opposite route and enjoy some fun under the sun! At the Jumeirah district in Dubai, one of the city's more upscale neighborhoods, there's a beach where you can swim, splash, and sunbathe all day. And it doesn't hurt that there's also a commercial center nearby that houses many great eats and a whole lot of amazing shopping to boot!
