Mixing classic with classy, this is one of the most popular things to do on your Dubai holiday. More than a sightseeing cruise offering the most astonishing views over Dubai’s lit up skyline (from water), there is a lot of character and history behind the dhow or traditional wooden vessel used for this cruise. It was once staple (in the pre-oil phase) for then prime occupations of the region, such as pearl farming, fishing etc. So be it for a slice of Dubai’s past or a relaxed cruise, go on a dhow cruise which mostly comes with amazing dining and breathtaking traditional entertainment onboard.

You’ll find it in malls, parks (like Dubai Creek Park with Dubai Dolphinarium show), and in the city’s swankiest of spots such as Al Habtoor’s Atrium where the jaw-dropping La Perle by Dragone show. Moreover, a Dubai trip during winter months, particularly Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Dubai Shopping Festival or DSF, allows you to be a part of an exciting repertoire of events including live performances at Global Village, streets etc.

But we’ve still managed to do it and we hope that this would serve as a source of inspiration to get you ready for your upcoming Dubai holiday.
