Dubai is a city that shows you all its greatest accomplishments with tall skyscrapers and modern transportation systems. However, if you explore the city further, you’ll also come across certain places that are relatively less popular but have some unique experiences in store for their visitors. Some of these places are located outside the city limits but can be reached easily from the place of your stay. Such places are also the ideal spots to indulge in some fantastic adventures, which would make your time spent in this city a memorable experience.
Among the most fascinating places you’ll get to explore during your Dubai holidays is the Dubai Creek, which is the heart of this Emirati city. The Bani Yas tribe had made this place their home many centuries ago and was the hub for fishing and pearl diving activities. In recent times, the entire area has become a place of great importance, especially for the history buffs who wish to know more about the region’s past. You can explore the Dubai Museum and the traditional markets located in this part of the city, called ‘souks’. Don’t forget to take a ride in one of the traditional boats or ‘abras’.
Your trip to an outdoor complex of wonderful public facilities, cafes, restaurants, and shops called ‘The Beach’ would give you the chance to indulge in a variety of experiences, such as watching a movie, shopping, dining, and visiting the beach area. If you’re holidaying in this city with your entire family, including children, you can visit this place during the weekend to have loads of fun in a popular waterpark. The kids would be entertained by the variety of offerings in the water park. The Beach is also a venue in great demand during the weekends owing to the guest DJs who play some amazing numbers and the visitors sway to their tunes.
Extending from the Dubai Creek to the Arabian Gulf is the 3.2-kilometre waterway called the Dubai Water Canal. It opened in 2016 and since then, it has been welcoming visitors with some amazing developments, such as a 12-kilometre cycling path and an 80,000-square-metre public space. This can be one of the places you can explore if you wish to enjoy cheap holidays to Dubai. Today, this canal attracts a large number of tourists with its five pedestrian bridges. You’ll also come across the Habtoor City development near this canal, which houses several five-star hotels and restaurants.
One of the places you must not miss while holidaying in this city is Dubai Opera, which is located in the new Opera District. The rear portion of the building is home to car parking spaces, taxi rank, and a foyer. The stage area has been designed to facilitate its conversion into three different platforms. Many individuals who visit this opera have often compared it with the West End of London and the Broadway of Manhattan, considering its exciting schedule. It is quite close to Burj Khalifa and Dubai Fountain. The building of Dubai Opera was inspired by the shape of ‘dhow’ ships that sail in the Arabian region.
