Geographically, Dubai is located in the Middle East on the south-east coast of the Persian Gulf. It is the capital of the Emirate of Dubai, one of the seven that make up the United Arab Emirates. This global city is a major aviation and financial hub. Dubai has gradually transitioned into a global icon of engineering and construction with the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa marking the skyline of the city. Dubai tourism is greatly promoted by the government; its ancient and modern attractions never fail to lure in tourists all around the year.
Best time to visit Dubai
Dubai weather is classified into hot and hotter with dry desert winds. If you are planning a Dubai trip, it is best to avoid the dry and hotter months of April to September. The best time to visit Dubai is during the winter months of November to March, when the skies above are clear blue and the beach below sports wonderful weather. Sun seekers and beach lovers can enjoy the sunny side of Dubai winters, while the shoppers will love the Dubai Shopping Festival that is usually held from December to February.
Expect some rainfall from January to March, which is a part of the Dubai climate for these months. During the summer months of April to October, you can escape the crowds and also find a hotel room with ease. Dubai hotels will be relatively cheap in these months, since this is the summer season, although everywhere indoors will be comfortably air-conditioned. If you are looking for cheap Dubai tour packages, just book the best Dubai holiday packages that MakeMyTrip rolls out for this off-season period for Dubai tourism.

What to eat in Dubai

Here are some tips on the best food in Dubai and how to enjoy it:
Street food: If you enjoy non vegetarian food, try some of the street food in Dubai’s Bur Dubai or Deira areas. Dubai’s traditional pizza, called Manousheh, is a delicious flatbread topped with salty Akkawi cheese, zaatar herbs and olive oil. Best had for breakfast, it comes along with a creamy labneh, jam, minced lamb and eggs. This is probably the best street food in Dubai! If you like spice, you can also try the Lahem Bl Ajin, Lebanese bread with spiced ground meat topping also known as “Arabian pizza”.
Traditional specialties: The famous Chelo Kebab is a combination of kebabs served with saffron-scented basmati rice, with a pat of butter added on. Likewise, Shish Tawook is a kebab served in traditional style and sandwiched in bread, while Al Machboos is a popular dish of rice and meat cooked together in one pot. Al Harees is a dish saved up for weddings, Ramadan and Eid in Dubai. Meat and wheat are baked together into a salty delight; you can’t stop at one.
Sweet delights: While on your Dubai trip, try some of the local sugary concoctions such as Luqaimat, a deep fried Ramadan special dumpling made of milk, sugar, flour, butter, cardamom and saffron. You can also try the Kanafeh, a traditional dessert made of rose syrup and sweet cream cheese and topped with chopped pistachios.
Vegetarian food in Dubai: Apart from Indian food, you can also try some local vegetarian specialties in Dubai, such as Tabbouleh which is made from tomatoes, green onions, cucumber and seasoned with lemon and fresh mint, or the Fattoush salad made with fried or toasted Pita bread pieces complemented with a lemon dressings and greens. Most of the hotels offered in MakeMyTrip’s Dubai packages will also arrange vegetarian food if requested in advance.

Fun things to do in Dubai
The regular Dubai sightseeing covers the most popular places to visit in Dubai through a half-day or full-day Dubai city tour. For something more, there are a number of interesting and fun things to do in Dubai for travellers of all kinds.
Desert Safari with BBQ dinner
Add a thrilling element to your Dubai holiday package with a memorable Desert Safari along with your friends and family. Travel out from Dubai to the golden dunes outside the city, in a 4X4 vehicle with an experienced driver. Enjoy an adrenalin-pumping off-road dune bashing session of 30 to 40 minutes, and take gorgeous pictures of the sunset. Continue to a desert camp where you will enjoy a delicious barbecue dinner along with musical entertainment under the stars.
Ski Dubai, the first indoor ski resort in the Mid-East, is located inside the Mall of the Emirates, one of the most famous places in Dubai. This is the perfect place to visit in Dubai for a day of fun with your family.

Snow Park, with activities like tobogganing, tubing, zorbing, wall climbing, bob sled rides, and snow play zones. Children will love the Penguin Colony at Ski Dubai, where they can meet King and Gentoo Snow Penguins.
Dhow Marina Cruise
The Dhow cruise is one of the most popular things to do in Dubai for most travellers visiting for the first time. The Dubai Marina, the world’s largest man-made marina, is a peaceful canal lined with famous skyscrapers like the Dubai Marina Mall and the Burj Al Arab. Sailing on the canal on a traditional wooden boat called “Dhow” is a wonderful experience. You will not only enjoy the boat cruise, but also get a great perspective of the wondrous architecture of the area from the boat accompanied by the sound of traditional music in the background. Depending on your preference, you can book a Dhow Cruise with Dinner, or a Sunset Dhow Cruise, or just a regular daytime cruise. Whichever Dhow Marina Cruise you book for your Dubai trip, you are sure to have a great experience!
This almost did not need to be said. Dubai and shopping go hand in hand! Whether you prefer to shop at the upscale Dubai malls such as the Dubai Mall, the Mall of the Emirates, and the Mercato Mall, go bargain hunting at the Dubai Outlet Mall, or stock up on jewellery at the Gold Souk Dubai, Dubai has a lot to offer the serious shopper. If you are looking for traditional products like textiles, ceramics, handicrafts, spices and other souvenirs to bring back from your Dubai holiday, we highly recommend a visit to Meena Bazaar in the Bur Dubai area. This is one of Dubai’s famous places for traditional shopping. If you are a really committed shopper, do consider booking your Dubai trip package to coincide with the Dubai Shopping Festival dates.
Party with a scenic view
Enjoy an evening out in Dubai with your friends and loved ones. We recommend an evening at Shimmers, one of Dubai’s famous places for a special meal. This beachside restaurant in Palm Jumeirah is known for its beautiful location and enchanting views of the Burj Al Arab. Enjoy authentic Greek cuisine in a casual yet intimate atmosphere. This is an ideal inclusion in a Dubai honeymoon package. You can also head to the Lounge at the Armani Hotel for an aperitif or nightcap in quiet luxury, enjoying an unforgettable view of the Dubai Fountain.
Jumeirah Beach Walk
Jumeirah Beach is very upscale and pleasant part of Dubai. The Walk at Jumeirah Beach is a popular open-air hangout full of fashion boutiques, retail stores, cafes and restaurants. Visitors can enjoy the incredible views of the water and the pleasant sea breeze, shop for unique handicrafts and designer products, and enjoy the buzzing vibe of this extremely chic walkway. This place is also where you are likely to see some of the best cars in the world! It is especially popular at night.
Here’s one for the adrenalin junkies. Skydiving in Dubai promises an opportunity to experience freefall right over the unique Palm Jumeirah landscape, or if you prefer it, over the desert outside the city. Experienced instructors guide you every step of the way, so that even beginners can try their first skydive in Dubai. Both tandem and solo skydives are available. It is a heavenly experience worth every second. A child-friendly setting to get a sense of skydiving is available at iFly Dubai, a 10m acrylic glass tunnel for an indoor skydiving simulation experience at Mirdif City Centre.
The 5 most Instagram-worthy luxury experiences in Dubai
Dubai’s high-flying lifestyle is tempting in many ways, with top-of-the-world experiences to explore. Splash out on these unique things to do in Dubai:
Gyrocopter Ride: If you wish to take a bird’s eye view of Dubai’s glittering skyline and cityscape, try the gyrocopter experience. This is a small private aircraft, rather like a helicopter, that seats two people and operates from the Dubai Marina. Along with your pilot, you will fly over the Dubai Marina, the Palm Jumeirah, and past the Burj Al Arab. Enjoy the smooth 20 minute ride, with views of the brilliant blue ocean and the glittering skyscrapers of the city. Truly an experience for the ‘gram!
Stretch Limousine Ride: Feel on top of the world with a luxury ride around Dubai in a gorgeous Stretch Limousine with your own private chauffeur. The one hour drive around Dubai will take you past the city’s highlights like the Burj Al Arab, the Burj Khalifa and the upscale Mall of the Emirates. Enjoy riding around in your luxury vehicle and catching the eye of everybody you pass, as you sit back and relax in your comfy leather seats. This is the perfect insta-worthy experience to book on your Dubai trip if you wish to impress someone special or even plan a proposal!
Chopper Ride: Make your Dubai trip a memorable one by adding a Helicopter Tour to your Dubai sightseeing. You will take off from the Jumeirah Heliport and fly past iconic sights such as the Burj Khalifa and various other Dubai skyscrapers. Depending on the duration of the flight you have chosen, you will also be able to see sights like the Palm Jumeirah, the Jumeirah coastline, Dubai Canal, Burj Al Arab, Port Rashid, etc. A Helicopter tour of Dubai is certainly a premium add-on to your luxury Dubai holiday.
Private Yacht Ride: If you prefer being on the water than in the air, we recommend hiring a luxury yacht for a private tour of 2 hours duration. The yacht can take a maximum of 6 persons, so it is great for a family or small group. Enjoy zipping around in your private yacht, relaxing in comfort and watching the skyline as you sip on water and soft drinks. Enjoy the different view of famous places in Dubai like the Atlantis Palm hotel and the Burj Al Arab from the water.
Full-Day Musandam Dibba Tour: Musandam in Oman is also called the “Norway of Arabia” due to its stunning coastline. This spectacular region, with its beautiful Arabian Sea coast and spectacular Hajar mountain ranges, is just a two-hour drive away from Dubai but offers a complete contrast from Dubai’s modern urban cityscape. Drive to Musandam Dibba and board a traditional Dhow for a cruise on the sparkling waters. You can choose to just relax and enjoy the views, or go swimming and snorkelling in the clear water. The tour to Musandam Dibba can be a highlight of your Dubai package, but remember to prebook it, since it must be blocked in advance along with passport details. You can add this to your Dubai honeymoon package as well.
The list of things to do in Dubai is endless, and very soon you will realise that a single Dubai trip is not enough to fully explore this city of gold. Luckily, the Dubai ticket price for a flight from India is quite attractive especially if booked together with a package, so multiple Dubai holidays are a definite option!
