The Arabian Desert
We know, we know, this is the most common and must have raised your brows as we began with it! But believe me when I say there’s more than what meets the eye! The view of the red and golden sand stretching as far as the eye can see is priceless. However, adding exotic elements such as a private barbeque dinner or a belly dancing show by exotic dancers, a henna session, or even a camel ride in the middle of the desert with your squad has made for an adventure of a lifetime!
The Arabian Desert is right outside your door, so go dune bashing or on a desert safari in air-conditioned comfort while searching for Aladdin’s treasure. Envisage the buggy as your personal roller coaster.
The Dubai Marina
Dubai Marina, carved along the Gulf shoreline south of Dubai’s The Palm Island, is a skyscraper-packed waterfront community that is one of the city’s swishes residential and leisure hotspots. At Jumeirah Beach, soak in the atmosphere.
Take a stroll along the lovely Promenade, a palm-lined waterfront walkway with landscaped greenery. The neighborhood is dotted with cosmopolitan restaurants, cafes, and pop-up craft markets. Views of the emerald-hued waterway and luxury yachts passing by can be had from here. From here, you can take an upscale yacht ride through the marina while marveling at the spectacular skyscrapers that offer amazing views of the marina, each with its own distinct architectural style. Book a candlelight yacht supper and take in the view of the glowing sky.
Make sure to take photos at the stunning Dubai Marina Walk fountain. Unwind and relax at one of the spas along the walk after a day of exploring.

This beautiful park, which has over 3000 animals from all over the world, has become a big draw in Dubai for both locals and tourists.

They are Safari Village, African Village, Asian Village, Wadi Village, Arabian Village, and Kids Farm, which also serves as a learning play area for young kids.
Would you believe it if I told you the world’s largest flower garden is in a desert city? The Dubai Miracle Garden is a wonderful sight to behold, spanning 72,000 square meters and featuring over 45 million flowers. The most amazing aspect of this garden is that its floral structures change with the seasons, giving visitors a unique experience each time they visit.
