Where best to start the adventure:

There are many exciting adventures to be had by couples in Dubai. Here is a top 10 list for couples to do to get the most out of the Dubai holiday:

  • Camping - Is there anything more romantic than a night under the stars? Many locals, expats and travellers camp freely in the desert, and if you've got a 4WD, the possibilities are fantastic.
  • Ski Dubai - The city's most incongruous attraction, Ski Dubai is a faux winter wonderland and comes complete with ice sculptures, a sledding hill and five ski runs.
  • Gulf diving - Dive into the warm Gulf waters and you can nose around shipwrecks submerged on the sandy seabed.
  • Desert safari - Experience the beauty and thrill of the desert by Jeep or the more sedate camel. Watching the sun set over the desert is an experience not to be missed – only then will you appreciate the stunning beauty of this exceptional place.
