4. Dune Bashing


If you have never heard of dune bashing, let us help paint a picture of this thrilling experience. Imagine sitting in an SUV as the passenger as the diver navigates the ups and downs of the extreme desert terrain at high speeds. Dune bashing is sure to have your adrenaline going and while the thought of bouncing through the sandy desert may sound scary, it truly is an authentic Dubai experience. Would you try it?

5. Camel Riding

A trip into the desert wouldn’t be complete without riding a camel. A traditional part of any desert tour, camel riding in the desert is a surreal experience that allows you to witness the vast expanse of the dunes and stunning sunset views.

6. Sandboarding  

Sandboarding is exactly how it sounds, like snowboarding but on sand. This adrenaline-pumping activity requires agility and balance, but the thrill of cruising down the slopes of golden sand is worth it. Sandboarding is a perfect activity for adventure lovers who are looking for a unique experience.

7. ATVs 

Riding an ATV through the desert is an exhilarating experience that allows you to explore the vast desert terrain at high speeds. The feeling of racing through the dunes is an experience that you will never forget. Let’s also not forget about how epic pictures of you geared up on an ATV will look!

LUXE TRIBE TIP: When visiting the desert make sure to wear/bring the following:

-Loose, lightweight clothing made of breathable fabrics such as cotton or linen 
-Hat
-Sunglasses 
-Sunscreen
-Close-toed shoes 
-Water 
-Scarf to cover your face and hair from the sand 
-A sand-proof bag for your phone


8. Modern vs. Old Dubai Tour
 

For those who are interested in history and culture, the modern vs old Dubai tour is a great way to see both sides of the city. This experience is a way to learn more about where the city came from and how it has transformed itself into the iconic world-renowned destination it is today.

9. Dubai Mall 


Dubai is a shopper’s paradise. Located in the heart of Downtown Dubai,  The Dubai Mall is one of the largest malls in the world, covering an area of over 12 million square feet ( as big as 50 football grounds put together)! A trip to this mall goes beyond a shopping experience as it also features several attractions, such as an indoor theme park, Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo,  authentic remains of a dinosaur, an ice rink, and a cinema… just to name a few. This attraction alone could take up an entire day since there is so much to see, do and eat.

10. Mall of Emirates 

If you don’t shop until you drop in the Dubai Mall, we recommend visiting the city’s second-largest mall, the Mall of the Emirates. This mall features over 500 retail stores, including popular brands such as H&M and Zara. The mall is also home to Ski Dubai, an indoor ski resort, and Magic Planet, an indoor theme park.
