Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks.

When  you hear the name, you automatically think playground, Sex in the City, late nights and sandy beaches right?  There is so much more to this spot on the map than the high life.

The Dubai Fountains…these are the same fountains that danced in Oceans 11 with George Clooney and Brad Pitt and helped us to remember Whitney Houston when she passed. With an incredible music and light show every 30 minutes that compliments the dancing waters which accounts as one of the most fun things to do in Dubai at night, leaving one with an unmistakable aura of serenity.

Dubai, the Desert

Without a desert safari is incomplete. The Arabian desert in all its vastness offers a myriad of activities like sand skiing, camel riding, dune bashing and quad biking to name a few.  After sunset only adds to the magic of the city with its barbeque dinners and cultural performances like the Tanura Dance Show, Belly Dancing and a majestic Fire Show. If you’re wondering where to go in Dubai at night with your partner, spend a night relishing in the Bedouin culture and stargazing which counts as one of the fun things to do in Dubai late at night.

Shopping

Famously known as the International Shopping Destination of the world, Dubai has the choicest selection of well-stocked malls that cater not only to the shopaholics and the ones obsessed with spending but offer a tantalizing range of activities like bowling, skiing, amphibious bus ride and many more, never leaving you to wonder what to do in Dubai. It is the largest mall in the world by total area at 1,124,000 square meters. In other words, it is equivalent to 50 football pitches and holds over 1200 shops.  So much to choose from!
