Dune Bashing Desert Safari               

Clients looking for heart-pumping thrills can’t miss having a dune bashing experience with one of Dubai’s Desert Safari companies. Tours can accommodate individuals or large groups and provide morning, evening, or overnight options at a furnished campsite. Tour activities include dune bashing in a 4×4 vehicle or quad bike, camel riding, sandboarding, witnessing awe-inspiring sunsets and sunrises, experiencing traditional dance performances, and so much more.

A highly recommended tour option that fits easily into Sky Vacations’ All-of-Dubai Package is the Desert Safari with a local BBQ dinner, belly dancing performance, and a Tanoura show. If sand grit is not a preferred accessory, tell your clients about desert hot air balloon rides or desert camel rides.


Dubai’s Beaches               

Hugged by the Persian Gulf, the length of Dubai is bordered by beaches renowned for their pristine soft sand, visitor amenities, and breathtaking views of the Burj Al Arab that towers above the water on its man-made island. Jumeirah Beach holds the status of “most popular beach in Dubai” and is an encompassing visit for clients who don’t have a lot of time to explore, as it’s peppered with cafes, barbecue pits, beach activities, and views that allow a hefty serving of Dubai in one place. Some of Dubai’s other notable beaches include Umm Suqeim Beach, Al Mamzar Beach, and Kite Beach for watersport enthusiasts.

Note that some of Dubai’s beaches have an entry fee (i.e. Jumeirah Beach—but its Public Beach is free—and Al Mamzar Beach), but there are still plenty of public beaches that don’t charge admission. It is also beneficial to let your clients know about Dubai beach etiquette and review designated “ladies days” (only women and children allowed).


Atlantis Aquaventure Water Park             

Aquaventure’s Tower of Poseidon breaks the record for longest waterslide in the Middle East.

Every waterslide and ride in this outdoor water park is a surge of adrenaline and a thrilling way to beat the heat in Dubai. The trinity of waterslides that have made it a legend in the Middle East are Tower of Poseidon, Leap of Faith, and Poseidon’s Revenge, but the park is also host to lazy rivers and a section where kids can safely run wild called Splasher’s Island.

Sky Vacations’ All-of-Dubai Package includes an optional day trip to the waterpark with transfer, making it easy to customize a trip for your clients who want to make a splash in Dubai.


Dubai Marina Walk

The Dubai Marina walkway lines the diameter of the canal splitting Jumeirah Beach and the Dubai Marina. The 7 kilometer (4.3-mile) paved pathway is abundant with restaurants and shops to weave in and out of as you trek around the canal, which has had more than one instance of marine wildlife swimming through; whales and sharks have been a spectacle for tourists strolling along the Marina Walk.


The Souks

Dubai’s colorful Spice Souk is filled with buckets of spices, herbs and incense.

 Visiting Dubai’s Souks is critical to experiencing Arab marketplaces and finding unique mementos and souvenirs. The north end of Dubai holds the reputable Gold, Perfume, Spice and Textile Souks, scattered in close proximity to one another for easy market-hopping. Souks outside of the cluster include Souk Madinat, vending a bit of everything from fine art to clothing; The Dubai Mall Souk, specializing in jewelry and stone design; and Souk Al Bahar, a modern take on a traditional Arabian marketplace.

A visit to the Souks, the City Market, and Old Dubai are included in the Half-day Dubai City Tour, so make sure to consider adding that to the itinerary to ensure your clients get the fullest experience of Dubai.


Whether you’re planning a multi-day Dubai experience or you’re packing a travel time crunch, Sky Vacations allows you to earn commission by creating the most fulfilling Dubai experience for your clients.
