Things to do near Downtown Dubai

Dubai is a city that bustles with excitement, possibilities, entertainment and inspiration. To a large degree, Downtown Dubai is where this vivid and ambitious lust for life is most pronounced. As home to the world’s tallest tower, the world’s biggest shopping mall, and the world’s largest performing fountain, this is very much a place where history is being made.

Away from the skyscrapers and shops, there are also incredible beaches and jogging tracks lining the Arabian Gulf, as well as a historical district with enchanting local souks, heritage buildings and wooden dhows on Dubai Creek. Explore the desert during a sunset safari over the dunes and enjoy Arabian hospitality with Bedouin traditions.
