The Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo gives you the chance to take the plunge and dive with sharks in its 10-million litre tank
To celebrate the UAE’s 45th birthday on 2 December we look at some of the adventures that make Dubai so special
Ride A Zip Line Through A Fountain
Make the leap from the W1 Tower in Downtown Dubai and fly over the Dubai Fountains with the XLine ride. The zip line will whisk you Superman style in front of the world’s tallest tower – the Burj Khalifa. Tickets priced Dhs600.
Sky Dive Over A Manmade Island
For a bird’s eye view of Dubai, a tandem skydive is hard to beat. Sky Dive Dubai will give adrenalin addicts the chance to free fall at over 120 miles per hour over the world famous Palm Jumeirah Island and capture the ultimate holiday selfie.
Dive With Sharks In A Mall
Experience the thrill of coming face-to-face with the world’s ultimate predator when you dive with sharks at Dubai Mall. The Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo gives you the chance to take the plunge and dive with sharks in its 10-million litre tank.
Go Dune Bashing In The Desert
You haven’t experienced Dubai unless you’ve visited the desert. Go dune bashing in a 4WD or hire a dune buggy and whizz around the base of Big Red as the sun goes down.
Ski In the Desert
Enjoy the beach and the slopes in one day – book a ski session at Ski Dubai. You can whizz down the black run then enjoy a hot chocolate and marshmallows at the mountain café halfway the piste. #OnlyInDubai
