1. The Desert

Despite Dubai being a massive city filled with highrise buildings, visiting the desert surrounding it is crucial. The perfect ways to spend time in the desert are to go sand skiing, go on a desert safari, overnight camp, ride camels, and go on a dune buggy trip. Visiting the desert is the perfect activity outside the city since it gives you a taste of life before Dubai became a metropolis.
