Things to Do in Dubai
   
Shopping
One of Dubai’s greatest attractions for visitors is its superb shopping, which is an integral part of life in Dubai. Being an open port with low import duties and no taxation, the city offers unbeatable value. Most major brand name products are readily available, and are often less expensive in Dubai than in their country of origin.
 
Due to its impressive number of shopping malls and souks, Dubai is a shopper's paradise, frequently called "the shopping capital of the Middle East". At Dubai's shopping centers visitors can find a wide range of products including cars, haute couture clothing, jewelry, electronics, furnishing, perfumes, sporting tools, etc. at reduced prices. 
Shops usually open from 9 am to 10 pm and on weekends until midnight. Visitors can apply for shopping cards in major malls and receive important discount.
 
     
Dubai Creek Ride
The creek is the historic and modern hearth of Dubai. It formerly served as a port for trading to/from India, Africa and the Middle East, and today has become the main commercial hub of the region, preserving some of its shipping culture and traditional houses; along with imposing contemporary buildings. 
 
Beaches
The city has various excellent public and private beaches where visitors have the chance of soak up the sun or practice different sea-sports in the hot, white and very salty waters of Dubai, like scuba diving, surfing, skiing and fishing. 
The beach parks have diverse facilities including changing rooms and play zones. Visitors can also travel 90-minute road to Khor Fakkan in Sharjah, where there are beautiful coral reefs supporting extensive aquatic life that includes kingfish, jackfish, red snapper, barracuda and rock cod.
 
     
Scenic Flying
There are helicopter and plane tours providing an excellent view of Dubai throughout the year.  Hot air balloon is another option to see the sand dunes and mountains in the countryside (there is an annual festival). Tourists can even try bungee jumping. 
The city is also provided with a cable car ride that runs 2.3km length at Creekside Park in 30 minutes. Suspended 30 m in the air, visitors can enjoy a wonderful sight of Dubai Creek.
 
     
Camel Racing

The exciting race meetings are normally held in the winter months (October to April) finishing in the annual camel race festival at Al Wathba, which attracts entrants from the entire world.
