Discover - Dubai

One of the most popular destinations for our Muslim travellers, Dubai is full of activities and family fun places to visit. With halal food aaplenty warm seas, and attractions to keep you busy whether a short or longer break, you’ll definitely have a blast when exploring this beautiful Emirate. From lively beaches of Jumeirah Walk to the vast untouched desert landscapes, you’ll have the time of your life sand duning and quad biking, or simply relaxing on the beach. Whether it’s a break in the sun you’re looking for, a quick stop over before continuing your travels, we challenge you to get bored of the city that doesn’t sleep.

 

From Burj Khalifa to Palm Jumeirah, explore Dubai’s best things to do and must-see tourist attractions. Dubai is a city that must be seen to be believed. Record-breaking architecture stands alongside traditional quarters, while man-made islands jut out of the coastline. Standing 828 metres high, the Burj Khalifa is hard to miss. The world's tallest tower naturally dominates the Dubai skyline, but the true majesty of the building is best appreciated up close or, even better, from inside. On a clear day, the view from the observation deck on level 124 is absolutely stunning, topped only by the view from the luxurious At The Top Sky Lounge on the 148th floor. And for those who would like to linger for a meal in the clouds, At.mosphere on level 122 is the place to be.

Highlights

Right next to the Burj Khalifa is The Dubai Mall. To call the sprawling development merely a shopping mall is doing it a disservice. Even an entire day spent here isn't enough to see it all. With its 1,200-plus shops and 150 restaurants, there are plenty of things to do, and the venue is also home to an indoor theme park, an ice rink, a huge indoor waterfall, a choreographed outdoor fountain and the giant Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo.

 

A man-made island in the shape of a palm tree - there's a reason why locals say 'only in Dubai.' Palm Jumeirah is one of the largest artificial islands in the world and a triumph of human ingenuity. Locals and tourists alike enjoy the Palm's vast array of high-end hotels, including the Waldorf Astoria, Fairmont, One&Only, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray and, perhaps most notably, the iconic Atlantis, The Palm.

Muslim Friendly Amenities

In Dubai, halal food is readily available in all the public restaurants and outlets. When it comes to hotels and resorts, some hotels do serve pork items, and these are handled and served separately. However if you're looking for a fully halal dining experience, head to some of the city-based hotels such as the Hyatt Regency Creekside or The Conrad on Sheikh Zayed Road. 

 

The are plenty of places to pray in Dubai, from the mosques that can be found every few miles to the prayer rooms in pretty much every public space. One of the most iconic landmarks in Dubai is the Jumeirah Mosque. The mosque, which is large enough to hold up to 1,200 worshippers, was built entirely from white stone in the medieval Fatimid tradition, with towering twin minarets framing a large central dome. When it's lit up at dusk, the intricate artistry and true beauty are highlighted.

Places to see

When it comes to attractions, the world famous Wild Wadi Waterpark hosts ladies only nights where the doors are shut to male visitors. Ladies’ Night is held in the Wild Wadi theme park every Thursday, lasting from April to October. On this very day, from 8 pm to midnight or 9 pm to 1 am, only Muslim women can enter the Wild Wadi water park, together with their siblings, with male children only allowed up to the age of 8 years old.

 

Dubai may be famous for the glitz and glamour of its sky-high towers, but the real heart of the city is, and always will be, the Creek. The saltwater estuary is the original site where the Bani Yas tribe settled, and its waters were vital for what used to be Dubai's main forms of economy: pearl diving and fishing. Today, the area is awash with the history of the emirate, as it's home to the Dubai Museum as well as the labyrinthine alleyways of the gold, spice and textile souks. While at the Creek, a ride across the water on a traditional abra is a must, and at an unbelievable AED1 per ticket, it's easily the best value tourist attraction in the city.
