Romantic Dubai City Tours to Enjoy in the Evening

Tourists visiting Dubai for a unique Arabian adventure always remember one particularly startling aspect of the emirate- the stunning sunsets that suffuse the desert city at sundown.

Romantic Dubai City Tours to Enjoy in the Evening

The surrounding desert is one of the main reasons for the brilliant sunsets and the city’s favorite pastime at sundown is to head to open parks or even the outskirts to catch the fading rays of the sun. Even viewed over the skyline of Dubai, you will find the views equally breathtaking.

One of the best ways to experience a summer sunset in the city is on a dhow cruise in Dubai. As the abras (water taxis) wrap up with their day’s errands, the dhows venture out on the waters. Some ferry passengers across the Creek while some take tourists on a Creek tour for sightseeing in Dubai.
dhow cruise in Dubai can also be booked for a private cruise along the Dubai Creek. Dhows are let for more than two hours for couples and private parties. Since these dhows contain more creature comforts than the average dhows or abras, they are perfect for a romantic sunset dhow cruise on Dubai Creek.  
Another great way to experience the brilliant sunsets of Dubai is to step out on a camel safari in Dubai for

the evening. Coordinate with your Dubai travel company for a safari tour of Dubai deserts to enjoy the sunset time of the day when you are deep in the desert.

These Dubai tour packages for desert safaris usually end at a Bedouin camp. If you are the type to prefer a heightened Arabian adventure, you could try out packages for overnight camping in the desert. It is a very safe activity and is the perfect opportunity to spend a romantic night for two deep in the calm desert. Of course, there will be guides along as well.

Catch Cricket while on your MICE in Dubai

Like many countries in this part of the world, the UAE is a big fan of the ‘gentleman’s sport’- cricket. Always ahead of the rest, Dubai is not one to be outdone. The magnificent Dubai Sports City Stadium is counted as a fine display of the city-state’s love for the sport and dedication to breath-taking architecture. 
For those attending a MICE in Dubai and interested in catching their favorite teams battle it out on the pitch, the DSC Stadium is the perfect place to indulge. Notwithstanding the vast tracts of land on which the facility is constructed, the highlight of the stadium is undoubtedly its ‘Ring of Fire’.

Tourists and employees looking for anArabian adventureto remember forever will appreciate the 365 floodlights that surround the opening of the stadium and are certain to count it among other interesting sights Dubai has to offer. Illuminated in the night, the DSC Stadium blazes and sparkles.

The DSC cricket stadium is however just one of the four stadiums to be constructed in Dubai Sports City. The three other stadiums are dedicated to hockey, football/rugby and an indoor stadium for sports like ice hockey, volleyball and indoor hockey.
To get around to the DSC, visitors and cricket enthusiasts attending a MICE in Dubai can book a Dubai car rental with One World. No matter where you have made your Dubai hotel booking, we can arrange for transportation to the venue and back.

Cool Dubai City Activities to Enjoy the Arabian Summer

While the months of June to September are some of the most sultry and arid months to be in Dubai, the months precluding it are no less hot.
Fortunately, there are number of interesting Dubai City activities that visitors and tourists can indulge in during this part of the year. Of course, you would have to set out properly clothed and cocooned in suntan and remember not to stay in the heat for an extended period.

However, if you are with a good Dubai travel company, you need only hire aDubai car rental to ferry you all over Dubai or anywhere else in the UAE. 

Some of theDubai tour packagesoffered at One World includes trips to water parks like Wild Wadi,Aquaventure and Dreamland. These venues are perfect for a summer cooling down for the entire

The malls are always an option, no matter what part of the year you are coming sightseeing in Dubai. Some great sales happen during the summer at shopping malls like Mall of the Emirates or Dubai Mallor Ibn Battuta Mall.
Mall of the Emirates even has an indoor skiing slope where artificially created snow can be enjoyed all year long. To get ahead of the summer crowd, you can make bookings with One World.
Dubai Summer Surprises, the summer counterpart to the Dubai Shopping Festival held earlier in the year, is another summerArabian adventure to look for. The shopping festival is usually held in the June-August months and takes place in air-conditioned venues, allowing people a respite from the heat.
It is however, a fact that hot summers of Dubai brings the number of European, Canadian, American, and North Asian tourists down to a significant size. The outdoor fun and activity, which marks the life in Dubai limits itself during the summer time. This does not mean that Dubai would not be fun in summers; in fact, the size of indoor activity doubles its size in summer. I have compiled a list of best things to do in Dubai during summer.

Dubai – More than just another International Tourist Spot

One of the star attractions of Dubai according to me has always been its avid regard for change and progress. Even though the emirate is widely regarded all over the world as one of the most progressive Islamic states, reading all the bad press about Dubai for the past few months is enough to leave a bitter taste in the mouth. Especially for tourists coming for sightseeing in Dubai.

 

The ruler of Dubai and Vice President of the UAE, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid did a wonderful job of

clamping down on the vitriol in a recent online one-on-one with journalists. His words give tourists coming in search of an Arabian adventure to the emirate a very powerful reason to visit Dubai or even make a home in the city-state.

Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid reasons in his interview, “We are not growing in order to be a model for its highest building in the world, best airport, and most luxurious hotel, and the largest seaport and man-made islands. These landmarks and features are unique and famous all over the world. But the Dubai model is beyond that. Dubai is an Arab city with scarce natural resources but with a clear vision of comprehensive development and social needs.”
The many sights and sounds of Dubai are beautiful no doubt, but the ruler’s words are a fantastic reminder of the reason why Dubai is actually famous internationally.

Dubai City Activites – Explore the Majlis Ghorfat Umm Al Sheif

While the Majlis Ghorfat Umm Al Sheif is not that old a construction (it was built in 1955), it certainly holds an important position among some of the main heritage buildings in Dubai.

 

Explore the Majlis
Explore the Majlis

This building used to be the summer retreat of the royal family and on occasion, an important meetinghouse for the people who used to make Dubai tick. The Late Sheikh Rashid Bin Sayeed Al Maktoum presided over these meetings in the main hall of this simple and traditionally constructed structure.

Named after the Umm Al Sheif pearl fishing bank, the Majlis Ghorfat is an unusual, largely because of its design. The architecture leans more towards the practical than the aesthetic and is especially adapted to provide respite from the summer heat by way of large shutter less windows.
Dubai City tours of the heritage structure are allowed and tourists can even enjoy an opportunity to check the interiors of the two-storied building. Tourists coming for sightseeing in Dubai can visit the Majlis Ghorfat between 8am to 9pm.
Incase you have not made any Dubai hotel booking or opted for a tourist package, you can hire a Dubai car rental to ferry you to and from the place.
The Majlis is located in Jumeirah and is very close to the beach. It is currently unoccupied and serves mainly as a museum of sorts for visitors. The items used by the royal family are preserved intact and are on open display for tourists to admire.
Contact an established Dubai travel company like One World to make your bookings to view this slice of Dubai heritage.
