What comes to mind when you think of Dubai?
You’re probably thinking of exploring the city in a luxury-brand car like a Mercedes-Benz G63 from RentG63, searing hot desert sands, hotels of superlative decadence, giant shopping malls, and old-world spice markets.
Well, all of those things are certainly there, but there are a number of other things you can do in Dubai that might just surprise you.
1. Indoor Ski Resort
A ski resort in the middle of a desert? It’s called Ski Dubai and offers and incredible wintry wonderland with skiing, snowboarding, and even penguins!
Ski and snowboard slopes are accessible by chair lift.
All levels are catered for, and there are other fun rides and attractions for those who don’t fancy making fools of themselves falling over on the slopes all day.
For example, there’s the bobsled run, Zorb ball runs, the ice cave, snow tubing and much more.
They also have great warm cafes and other places to just sit and relax. As they say at Ski Dubai, there’s “snow much to do!”
2. World’s Largest Urban Zipline
If it’s an adrenaline-packed thrill then all you need do is seek out the XLine Dubai Marina experience.
Dubai previously offered an impressively long zipline experience in the form of the XLine Dubai Fountain, but this Marina version is twice as long and a thousand times more exciting.

Since opening on Valentine’s Day 2013, the Miracle Garden has steadily increased in popularity and now attracts millions of visitors every year.
4. Drone Taxis
Long have many people been awaiting the concept of the flying car to become a reality.
Well, thanks to Dubai, it is quickly coming to fruition.
Since their first test in 2017, Dubai visitors have been able to avoid traffic altogether in short flights in comfortable drones that not only take you where you need to get to fast, but offer an absolutely unique perspective on this amazing, green and futuristic city.
5. World’s Largest Dancing Fountain
