Although the UAE is a small place there is plenty to do besides shopping and sunning your self. Here is the first 10.
  1. Get in the thick of Indo-Pak wrestling
  2. Sample a secret restaurant
  3. Watch bulls butting
  4. Coo at baby turtles
  5. Burn up the road to Jebel Hafeet
  6. Catch the fish market
  7. Run the Dubai Marathon
  8. Visit a haunted house
  9. Join in a street sport game
  10. Snoop in a sheikh's place

Check out the article for the full list and details.

50 things to do in the UAE


--------------------
If you really look like your passport photo, you need the holiday!

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

Awesome, thanks Louise! This article is great, as there is not alot of information like this in the guidebooks for Dubai and things are changing so rapidly, its good to get updated lists....I haven't done a quarter of this stuff yet!

How long should we need to spend for doing all these smile.gif


Quite a few of these things listed are seasonal but to get the most out of Dubai and the UAE you can do as little as 2-3 days and up to a week or two depending on what your interests are.

Visit Desert Safari and Ski Dubai, have a one-of-a-kind live encounter with the most intelligent and endearing snow bird, the penguins at the largest snow park in the world.
