Things To Do In The Night During Your Sightseeing In Dubai Experience

One thing that can be said about Dubai with definite certainty is the city’s commitment to pandering to different cultures. Perhaps one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the Middle East, Dubai boasts of a foreigner population made up of more then 1.2 million people.
While preserving its Arabic sensibilities, Dubai is a trifle more lenient with the dress, alcohol consumption and religious laws. Travelers coming for a bit of sightseeing in Dubai need to note that the only places where alcohol can be consumed are the hotels in Dubai, which house almost all of the nightclubs and pubs and a select few bars around town.
The racecourses are a different matter though, with the government granting a special permit for alcohol consumption last year when the Dubai World Cup coincided with the Prophet’s birthday.

Some really great places you can quench your thirsty palate during your Dubai City Tours are at the Atlantis, Carter’s (which happens to have an oxygen bar as well), Hard Rock Café, the Irish Village, Trilogy at the Madinat Al Jumeirah and the aircrew favorite Zinc.

Besides these party spots, you could request your Dubai Tour Packages to include a Dhow Cruise in Dubai or book an Italian opera extravaganza. Puccini’s La Boheme and the Nutcracker Ballet are two productions that feature in the event list for the coming months.
You can even take out children for shows like the Jack and the Beanstalk show and the Magical Music of Walt Disney children’s show. Why should they miss out on all the fun.

Experience Souk Shopping As Part Of Your Dubai Tour Packages

Eons before the Dubai tourism department brainstormed the Dubai Shopping Festival, there were the original souks of Dubai that dotted the Emirate. Just like the malls that are slowly taking over the retail area today, the souks were the heart and soul of Dubai trade and economy.

have given over to cobbled and more spacious versions, but one element they yet retain is an old world charm.

One of the must-see and must-try Dubai City Activities, these souks are still the best places to get the best bargains and indulge in some authentically Arab grabs. The Gold Souk for instance, offers tourists and residents alike a selection of gold designs and craftsmanship that is more traditional as compared to the modern Westernized options sold at malls and showrooms.
Book a Dubai car rental through your travel agency and direct them to the Ascot Hotel, where the Gold Souk is located.

The Deira Spice Souk and the Perfume Souk are tastes of the exotic you must savor when sightseeing Dubai. The spices and attars (perfume essences) sold at these places are headier and more aromatic then the ones found elsewhere. Some attar shops can even concoct you a signature perfume to suit your senses and personality, making it a unique souvenir to carry home (we happen to know some authentic perfume sellers who can do this).

Our Abu Dhabi travel company can arrange for excursions and make a hotel booking in U.A.E. near these relics of Old Dubai. Contact us for an Arabian adventure high on some retail therapy.

Dreaming Of Romantically Idyllic Dhow Cruises In Dubai?

If Dubai were Venice, the traditional dhows that ply its waters would be akin to the rustic gondolas used to navigate the streets of the Italian city. But the dhows of the Middle East are even more sophisticated and beautiful than the gondolas of the West.
While this lofty comparison could be just because we are a loyal Abu Dhabi travel company, dhows are undoubtedly an ubiquitous feature in the Emirate of Dubai. Unlike the Venetian gondolas though, dhows are more of a tourist feature than a water taxi.
Dhow Cruise in Dubai is a unique experience and every traveler visitng Dubai for the first time must have a ride in one to round off their sightseeing in Dubai. Select Dubai City Activities like the ones offered at One World include even more routes for a Dhow Cruise in Dubai.
A popular route your guide will take you down by is the magnificient Dubai Creek. Other equally popular routes include Mussandam, Khor Sham and Kumzar.
There are fine dining options, entertainment options like belly dancing (available only in the Marina Dhow Cruise) and traditional dancing, barbeque dinners, snorkelling activities and a lot more you can enjoy aboard a Dhow Cruise in Dubai.
All along the way, you shall get to savour the sights and sounds of Dubai’s bustling and thriving urban life. Many travellers going sightseeing in Dubai never fail to marvel at the contrasts between tradional and modern Dubai.
