Things to Do in Dubai This Spring
With the winter crowds thinning out and temperatures still comfortable before summer turns up the heat, spring is a great time to enjoy Dubai. Here are some popular ways to make the most of the city’s sights, outdoor activities, and desert wilds between mid-February and early May.
See the best of old and new Dubai from a hop-on hop-off bus tour, where you can opt for a seat on the open-air top or in the air-conditioned lower deck.
Tour downtown and modern Dubai to admire its futuristic architecture, such as the Burj Al Arab hotel and the Burj Khalifa, the world’s highest tower.
Dive into the aquatic fun of the Aquaventure Water Park at the Atlantis, The Palm hotel—ideal for cooling down when the sun is high.
Gaze down instead of up at the skyscrapers on an exciting helicopter flightseeing ride over the city.
Ride horseback across Dubai’s sands to feel the full beauty and vastness of the desert.
Bounce across the Persian Gulf for widescreen views of the city on a coastal speedboat tour.
Experience the desert at its most magical with a sunset 4x4 dune bash and barbecue dinner at a Bedouin-style camp in the sands.
Cross the dunes by vintage Land Rover to spot gazelle and other animals before a night under the stars on a wildlife safari and overnight stay.
