What To Do in Dubai

Fun Things To Do In Dubai

No Cash Needed! Now you won’t need to wait ’til pay day comes around!

Camp out in the desert

Grab some friends, a few cool boxes and tents – it’s time for a camp-cation! Just 40 minutes East of the main city is a peaceful, secluded camping spot known as Al Qudra Desert. Totally free to camp out, enjoy a fun-filled weekend without breaking the bank. It’s best to leave this one for the winter; we’re pretty sure sauna-like tents aren’t exactly what you had in mind.


Shop for fresh produce and crafts

Give yourself a break from the crowded malls and enjoy the great outdoors at The Ripe Food & Craft Market. Held every Saturday night between 3pm and 9pm (starting from the 15th October) at Al Barsha Pond Park, browse through countless stalls of local produce and quirky handmade trinkets.

Go to a stand-up comedy night

Whether you’re into stand-up comedy or improv, the guys at Courtyard Playhouse certainly know how to entertain. Opening their doors in the evening for free, head down for a chilled night filled with plenty of laughter and embarrassing moments (if you’re chosen to participate).

Brush up on your camel history

Curious about camels? Well, you’ll be happy to know that Dubai has its very own Camel Museum packed with wax statues and interesting info on the camel’s anatomy, its history and skeletal figures, too.


Watch the dancing fountains

Leaving the most extravagant experience ’til last, The Dubai Fountain at Dubai Mall never ceases to amaze – no matter how many times you’ve seen it. Boasting the Guinness record for the world’s largest dancing fountains, experience incredible shows without having to pay a dirham.
