Dubai is one of today’s trendiest travel destinations, known for its over-indulgence and exotic luxuries. You can spend your time skiing indoors in the middle of the desert, buying gold bars from a vending machine or living it up at a world-class resort, but to make sure you have the ultimate experience, check out these incredible activities to guarantee your stay is as over the top as your destination.


If there is one thing Dubai has plenty of, it’s sand. This city in the desert nation of United Arab Emirates has plenty of ways to make its top commodity fun. Desert Safari Dubai, offering desert adventures like the VIP Red Dune Safari excursion, lets you have fun in the sand with an afternoon playing in luxury off-road vehicles, followed by an evening dinner in the desert, including a fire and light show along with a traditional dance performance. The excursion includes henna painting, a camel ride and plenty of photo opportunities.


Nothing quite says luxury like riding in a fast car and Dubai Autodrome makes that possible. Ride along with a professional driver to see how the experts do it or take a turn behind the wheel to see how the cars handle. The track offers experiences in cars like a Ferrari GT, F1 or a McLaren Sprint, just to name a few.

Dubai isn’t a place where exotic cars are meant to be confined to the racetrack. During your stay, rent one of the flashiest cars in the world to see the city and to be seen in. Rent a Lamborghini, Ferrari, Maserati or Rolls Royce to drive around for a night on the town or to enjoy for your entire stay. Companies like VIP Rent a Car make sure you can show off your fancy side while rolling around Dubai.


When it comes to seeing the city itself, make sure you tour it like a boss with a luxury limo tour. Companies like Connection Chauffer offer a variety of tour options for seeing the city both from the street and from the water. You can arrange a three-hour tour in a stretch Lincoln limo, a Ford SUV limo or a Hummer limo. Yacht options range from a 22-foot speed boat to a 117-foot luxury yacht. For a full day of indulgence, take the yacht and limo combo tour (available only on Saturday).


Regardless of how you spend your time in Dubai, you will encounter luxury and indulgence at every turn. Just a few hours in this amazing city is enough to understand its reputation as the playground of the rich and famous.
