In pictures: Why we love the UAE
Because you can do almost anything in the UAE. And we’ve got pictures to prove it.
Because you can do almost anything in the UAE. And we’ve got pictures to prove it. 1. You can practise your yoga skills in an indoor ski area in the middle of the desert. @minja0490 2. Or you can step outside into the actual desert and go dune bashing with the local camels. @asil.ab 3. Feeling hot? Cool down on an Abra ride alongside the dancing Dubai Fountain. @aljvd 4. Still feeling hot? Head down to Aquaventure in the Atlantis and experience an underwater ride alongside sharks and other sea creatures. @izzatihazrul 5. If the latter is too commercial for you, try fishing the way our Emirati ancestors used to do it. @nicolachiton 6. On another note, you could stroll the old spice souq in Bur Dubai. @dubaidarelhy 7. Are you a sports addict? Pass by the Los Angeles inspired outdoor gym at The Beach, JBR. @progressive_calisthenics 8. You can experience some of the world’s best fireworks like these ones at the Dubai World Cup. @jasminee75 9. Watch the Dubai Fountain while hanging from a wire. @dubai 10. Or watch a celebrity perform live on stage – Katy Perry is one of many celebs to visit the UAE. @mydubai 11. Bored of the city life? Drive to Hatta dam for some peace and quiet. @needlez_and_pinzz 12. And do that while on a motorcycle in the middle of the highway. @saeedbintowq 13. Don’t be surprised if you pass by Dubai Police’s luxury fleet. @dubaipolicehq 14. And don’t be surprised if you see this guy… @mr.eisa 15. Or this guy… @olegcricket 16. Did we mention that the UAE attracts adventurers? Why swim alone when you can swim with a horse? @ra3i.al5il 17. Yes – this is the same horse, relaxing with a baby. @ra3i.al5il 18. Speaking of relaxation, there aren’t many places where you can enjoy a luxury oasis in the middle of the desert – this is Dubai’s Bab Al Shams resort. If you haven’t been yet, you’re missing out. @taramilktea 19. Sick of the desert? Hang out with penguins at a ski slope inside a shopping mall. @farahalqaderi 20. Or visit the Dubai Miracle Garden and Butterfly Garden, where houses made out of flowers and hundreds of butterfly species reside. @carolcantelli 21. There’s always something for the kids. @samaralmarri 22. And adults too – enjoy a traditional Arabic coffee and raise a cup to the country’s 44th National Day. @ellocandy 23. Enjoy the city’s skyline with a friend at the man-made island, Palm Jumeirah. @lena_denisova 24. Or enjoy it alone – while doing yoga. @jarradseng 25. Family activities don’t have to be spent in the mall – in winter, that is. @m6nphotography 26. Well, they can be spent swimming with dolphins. Yup, we’re still in the UAE. @loxxi125 27. Skateboard at a skate park to the backdrop of Burj Khalifa. @tonyacolson 28. Shall we go on? Or have you fell for the UAE yet? @mydubai
