Here are why your adventures in Dubai do not end at sunset…
You thought nothing could beat the exotic sunrise and the golden hue over Dubai that lasts throughout the day. You are quite happy with your day’s adventures and decide to stop for the day. You glance out of your hotel room and catch a glimpse of the glittering city against a stunning sunset in the background – each skyscraper a lightshow of its own, each landmark a festival.
You realize, and quite happily admit, that you were wrong… Dubai dazzles even at dusk, and you are missing all the adventures under its dimly lit sky,
Dubai happens to be one of the most happening cities around the world 24/7. This means, from rides in the desert to an underwater zoo, the number of places you could visit and experience before you settle in for an exquisite dinner are endless.
Here are our top seven activities to do at dusk, so the next time you visit Dubai for a week, you have your pre-dinner escapades all planned and ready to go!
Arabian Desert Ride – After Sunset
Cue in the theme song ‘Arabian nights’ from Disney’s Aladdin because nothing else could fit the vibe better! Book a ride into the desert after sunset and experience a vast sea of sand dunes under a beautiful dimly lit sky. Some tours even stop in the middle of the desert for you to enjoy a little picnic with your loved ones! To say that the experience is magical is truly an understatement.
