Dubai is a lively and vibrant city, especially at night when it lits up with innumerable lights. It is the perfect time to get out of your home or hotel room and explore this marvellous city. There are several places in Dubai where you can spend a memorable evening with your family and friends. Here we have presented some of the best places to spend evening in Dubai.
Dubai Creek is an important part of Dubai’s past as well as present. It is the place where the Arabs first settled in the city. The Dubai Creek, which separates Bur Dubai and Deira, was also the major source of income before oil was discovered in Dubai. Today, the Creek has transformed into a swanky place with numerous buildings, five star hotels, etc. However, it has still preserved a part of its old form in the Bastakia Quarter. With so much history as well as growth in one place, a walk along the Dubai Creek in the evening would be a special experience. Going on a dhow cruise Dubai ride is another great way of spending time on the Dubai Creek in the evening. Having a delicious dinner while enjoying the beautiful sights of the Creek would give you a memorable evening.
A tour of the Burj Khalifa can be done anytime during the day. But to experience the true beauty of Dubai, go for an evening slot. The Burj Khalifa tour typically involves the tour of the lobby where you get to see the story behind the growth and development of the building through pictures and videos. It also involves a ride on the fastest elevator to the 124th floor of the building from where you can take a look at the entire city of Dubai. The evening time would give you the opportunity to see the glory of Dubai with its enormous buildings, the vast desert and the twinkling lights. So, book a ticket today and make the most of it.
Just outside the Burj Khaifa (between the world’s tallest building and Dubai Mall), sits the largest fountain of Dubai. The highlight of the Dubai Fountain is the sound and light show that it plays in the evenings. The waters of the fountain perform a choreographed dance on some beautiful music. The music, the lights, the colours and the flow of the water, everything would mesmerize you, and you would definitely want to stay for an encore performance. You can watch the Dubai Fountain show for free as many times as you want. So, take you place at the fountain or a book a table at one of the restaurants nearby after 6:30 in the evening to see this mesmerizing show.
If you are in Dubai for whatever reason, you must not miss the desert safari, one of the best ways to spend a special evening in Dubai. The tour company takes care of all your travel arrangements, right from the journey from your hotel room to the desert camp and back. There are several adventure activities to enjoy here, some of which include camel riding, dune bashing, quad biking, etc. One of the best parts of the desert safari is that it begins in the evening, giving you the opportunity to watch sunset in the desert. Once the night sets in, it is time for some entertainment (belly dancing) and a delicious Arabic meal. You can also choose to spend the night in the desert by opting for overnight desert safari. Spending a night under the open, star-lit sky is definitely a unique experience.
Sightseeing is something that most of us do during day time. But when you are in Dubai, you should take this opportunity and explore the city after the sun sets. While you can do this on your own if you have your own vehicle, the hop-on hop-off bus ride would be able to give you a better experience. There are two different bus routes to choose from, and you can select the one that interests you the most. The bus provides pre-recorded commentary of the places you pass, and you are free to get off the bus to explore the place further if it interests you.
Night Clubs and Bars
Even though Dubai is an Islamic city, the nightlife of the city is quite happening. There are several swanky night clubs and bars in the city, most of them in the prime locations of Dubai. Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah, etc. have some of the most popular nightclubs, bars and restaurants in the city. While in Dubai, you must try out the Buddha Bar, 400 Club, Blue Bar, Boudoir, Irish Village, Hard Rock Cafe, Tropicana, etc. Hotels owning private beaches also hold beach parties with a bar, music and great dancing. So, do not forget to explore the amazing night life of this Emirate city.
Apart from this, you can spend the evening in Dubai by visiting one of the numerous malls, strolling along the JBR Walk, dining at a restaurant with a great view of the city of Dubai, etc. Your hotel room or home is the last place you must be when in Dubai in the evening, especially during weekends. So, pick a place and set out to have some super fun.
