1. Take to the skies with a helicopter flight


Helicopter Flight Dubai


In Dubai, there’s so much to see, and what better place to sit back and take it all in, than from the sky? Soar above the city’s skyscrapers, including the tallest building in the world- the Burj Khalifa, and admire the spectacular views from above. Look out for iconic landmarks, like the amazing Palm Islands (which can be seen from Space!), the luxury Burj Al Arab hotel, the huge Mall of the Emirates and Dubai Creek. Choose between an exhilarating 15 or 25-minute adventure and get ready for an experience you’ll never forget. If you’ve already been to the Burj Khalifa observation deck, go even higher, and try an incredible helicopter flight- without a doubt the best way to see the sights!

2. Go skiing


Ski Dubai


Yes- skiing in Dubai! You might not have thought to put the two together, but Dubai actually has its own indoor ski resort with real snow. Ski Dubai is a winter wonderland, equivalent to the size of 3 football pitches, and is located inside the enormous Mall of the Emirates. There are green, blue, red and black runs just like any other ski resort, as well as ski patrols and chairlifts. Meet Ski Dubai’s newest residents- the adorable snow penguins, and get up close to them with special interaction opportunities. The minus 4-degree temperature will be a welcome break from the Dubai heat, and you might even find yourself wanting to warm up with a delicious hot chocolate.
