Don’t Miss Out On An Exciting Desert Safari!

Here’s the thing about a desert safari – it never loses its magic. And magic is what it’s all about – the mystical, mysterious desert somehow brings back the days of the old. Think Arabian Tales – the Scheherazade and her prince, meeting out on the dark dunes at night. Join a desert safari and camp out in a real-to-goodness Bedouin camp, and get all set for a real Arabian experience. Experience the thrill of dune driving, sand surfing, and other thrills. If you’re on a night desert safari, enjoy the blissful sunset when the desert is awash with every color in the rainbow. Go to sleep watching the dunes throw long dark shadows, cut through by light from the vibrant desert moon and stars.


Don’t Forget to Take-In a bit of History at Dubai Museum

If you’re interested in culture and history, be sure to visit the oldest building in Dubai. Constructed out of sand and coral in the 19th century, the Al Fahidi Fort was at one time a defense point. The Al Fahidi Fort now is home to the Dubai Museum. At the Dubai Museum, you can learn how this country evolved from being a small deserted fishing village to the most mind-blowing marvel in the world. Explore and enjoy images and artifacts from ancient Bedouin life, and see how the people lived off of the sea before oil was discovered. If you have a romantic side, then learning about the Arabian nomadic life will give you a definite thrill.


Don’t Forget To Shop – It’s Dubai After All!

Dubai Mall is the place to be if you love fabulous architecture, mind-blowing displays, and to see wealth, wealth, and more wealth. There’s even a gold ATM here! Put in your card and take out gold coins and gold bars. Dubai Mall is an architectural wonder. The mall houses some of the top designer brands in the world - Cartier, Armani, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, and so on. If all you want to do is shopping over the weekend, be sure to also check out the Mall of the Emirates and Mercato Mall, just to name two others.


Here’s to an Exciting Helicopter Ride to Take All of Dubai in!

It’s hard to take in all of Dubai in just two days, but here’s a way you can do just that. A helicopter ride over Dubai is one of the top tourist attractions in Dubai! Fly right over the stunning Burj Khalifa, feeling like a god. Get a unique viewpoint of the amazing Palm Island and the World Map Islands from high above. Take in the Burj Al Arab, the magnificent Dubai Canal, and the Dubai Fountain, and much more. Don’t forget to take videos of the entire tour to amaze your pals back home. The ride lasts for no more than 30-40 minutes, but you will feel that you have traveled to the moon and back.


Although a weekend is a small window of time to see all of Dubai, it will give you a great taste of the place. Day or night there is always something to see and do in Dubai.
