Whether it's family entertainment, exciting foodie events or a dose of adventure that you’re after, we have an inspiring list of fresh activities to get you planning an unforgettable trip to this sunny city.
Swim with 360º Views
A visit to Dubai’s Palm Tower would go amiss without a swim in the newly-opened AURA SKYPOOL. Perched atop the 50th floor as the world’s first and highest 360-degree infinity pool, you can enjoy spectacular views of the Dubai skyline and the glistening Arabian Gulf. Pool experiences can begin in the morning with a laid-back poolside lunch, the afternoon for sensational sunset views or in the evening for star-gazing and live entertainment.
Travel to the Future
The first thing you’ll notice as you head to the Museum of the Future is its striking glass and steel exterior, covered in Arabic calligraphy. Once you enter, you’ll be transported through a gateway to a world 50 years from now and a society enhanced by science and technology. Each floor of the museum is designed like an expansive, interactive movie set, brought to life by expert storytellers, technologists and visionary artists. Safe to say it’s a must see for any family trip to Dubai!
Dive to Great Depths
Aqua enthusiasts rejoice, the latest addition to the city's thriving sports and adventure activities scene is Deep Dive Dubai. The centre's 60.02m-deep pool is certified by Guinness World Records as the world's deepest swimming pool for diving. Aside from its remarkable depth, it includes an immersive experience in an Atlantis-like sunken city as well as year-round freediving and scuba diving courses.
Enjoy Foodie Thrills
Combine sunshine lounging, luxury dining experiences, sprawling bars and incredible views of the sea and you have Bla Bla, Dubai’s newest beach club. A unique concept in all-day entertainment with Japanese, Italian and American cuisine offerings, it adopts the typical Dubai ‘go big or go home’ ethos. So if you’re after a dining experience with a simmering party atmosphere, this is the place for you.
Ride the Tallest Ferris Wheel in the World
See Dubai's impressive marina skyline from a different perspective at Ain Dubai, the biggest and tallest Ferris wheel in the world. Just another record-breaker to add to Dubai’s ever-growing list, this new entertainment hub could see you enjoying a sit-down dinner, listening to a concert or hosting a party in one of its 48 hi-tech cabins.
