If you haven’t already done it, you need to create that Dubai bucket list before you leave this city with regrets! From thrill rides at water parks to outrageous hotel rooms, there are SO many insane things to do in Dubai, and we’ve handpicked five that should definitely make your list.
1. Take a ride in a gyrocopter
Taking control of a two-seater gyrocopter while flying past the Burj Al Arab is up there with one of the best things to do in Dubai. These micro helicopters are tiny; you’ll see some with doors and some without! If your pilot is feeling adventurous, you’ll get to experience some real air acrobatics!
insydo tip: This is an awesome gift idea! The gyrocopter only seats two – you and the pilot! Snap the ultimate selfie while cruising past the Burj Al Arab.
2. Conquer the desert!
Get to the grips with the desert while working your way through that bucket list. With quad-biking safaris, VIP desert safaris and overnight camps, thrusting yourself into the sand dunes is must. Bash through the sand, hike to the top of dunes and try some fresh (warm) camel’s milk… if you dare!
insydo tip: Bash through the dunes, capture the golden sunsets and create memories! The evening desert safari shows include Middle Eastern eats, shisha and a belly dance show.
