After you’ve gotten some rest, whether at a city-based accommodation or a 5-star beachfront hotel in Dubai, here are some of the best activities you have to do at night in this emirate:
Go on a dinner cruise solo or with your travel companion at the elegant JA Bateaux Dubai. As you float along the serene waters,
be ready to be amazed at the city’s lighted up architectural marvels and skyline.
Dinner will feature gourmet dishes prepared by world-class chefs and brought to you through their signature personalized service. Aside from the delightful eats, you will also drift along the Dubai Creek with tasteful music in the background. It’s the perfect date and start to your holiday if you are with your loved one.
Once you’ve gotten off from the cruise, head to the Al Barsha Night Market. Located at the Al Barsha Pond Park,
you can immerse yourself in live acoustic music, great food, and other fun nighttime activities there.
You can shop for organic, locally grown foods in this night market. You can even join free fitness classes, watch a live movie screening and enjoy a wide range of various activities. To make the most of the city’s many attractions, your hotel front desk can assist you as you plan and enjoy the best leisure activities Dubai has to offer.
The Dubai Mall is one of the best places to go to at night especially if you love shopping. But before you indulge in some retail therapy, watch the world-famous Dubai Fountain show.
The fountains are the world’s largest choreographed fountain system set on the Burj Khalifa Lake in The Dubai Mall.
Each show consists of a choreographed water show set to a mix of music. With all the lights surrounding the fountains, watching the Dubai Dancing Fountains is one of the best, memorable and free things you can do in this city at night.
There are a lot of fun outdoor activities in Dubai you have to try but nothing can be more enjoyable than visiting the Garden Glow. This place was specifically created for visitors to see at night.
Located in Zabeel Park, this is the biggest glow-in-the-dark garden.
It is made of 10 million energy saving bulbs and yards of recycled luminous fabric designed by more than 500 renowned craftsmen, architects, and engineers.
Aside from being mesmerized by the light models, you can also visit the Ice Park and Dinosaur Park – leisure spots located near the Garden Glow.
A trip to Dubai isn’t complete without trying something unique in this city. One of the exceptional experiences you have to try here is dining or drinking at At.mosphere – the highest restaurant and lounge in the world – located at the Burj Khalifa on the 122nd floor.
While enjoying your meal and drinks, you can marvel at Dubai’s picturesque skyline. You will also get magnificent views of the Arabian Gulf.
Lastly, complete your visit to the city of gold by immersing yourself in gold!
Gold on 27 is a restaurant lounge located on the 27th floor of the Burj Al Arab in Jumeirah.
This nightspot is decorated with gold leaves and nearly 99% of the bar and furniture are all covered in gold.
If being surrounded by gold isn’t enough, try their cocktails that are inspired by this city of luxury. There’s also a type of refined champagne with gold that you can try.
There are also other clubs, bars and restaurants you have to try in Dubai to experience its fun, glorious nightlife. As such, you can still enjoy a memorable, wonderful holiday in this city even if you explore it at night.
