Christmas is almost here! ‘Tis the season of festive parties, hitting the (indoor) slopes, and Christmas markets. Dubai offers a lot at Christmas time, but of course, having fun this season is always better when you’re spending time with friends. So we’ve rounded up the best activities to do that we know yule love.
Here are a few things to put in your calendar this week…
Get that festive feeling
The Christmas market at the Madinat Jumeirah is guaranteed Christmassy feels. The perfect place to meet up with friends, why don’t you head to the massive snowball zone? You might even meet Santa. Grab some last minute Christmas presents, feast on the traditional food, and enjoy the nearby bars. Learn more
Oh Baby it’s not that cold outside
With temperatures in Dubai hitting 25℃, why not dig out your jacket and hit the slopes? Head down to the indoor ski centre, Ski Dubai. With real snow and sub minus temperatures, you’re sure to feel Jack Frost nipping at your nose. Not a Skier? There’s plenty to entertain such as meeting the local penguins and enjoying a toboggan ride. Learn more
If hitting the snow slopes isn’t your thing why not head to the dunes. There are plenty of guides to pick you up in a dune buggy and go dune bashing and sandboarding. See the desert like you’ve never seen it before. Get up close and personal with camels or enjoy a buffet lunch, some much needed shaded respite. Since it’s Christmas, why not really go that extra mile, grab some friends from ASKWHO and enjoy an evening desert safari? You can even camp in luxury, enjoy the stars at night and have some drinks by the fire. Learn more
