How to enjoy a 3-day layover in Dubai

Dubai has positioned itself not only as a great destination to go to, but because of the air connections to the Maldives, Seychelles, East Africa and South Africa, it’s a great way to break up your journey from the USA.

There's a little bit of practically everything to do in this fantastic global city!

Here is a three day Dubai Itinerary list of exciting activities to do when traveling to Dubai.

1 Hop-On Hop-Off Big Bus Tour

With the Hop-on Hop-off Big Bus Dubai Tour, you'll have an elevated view of the city from the comfort of an open-top bus as it moves through the Emirate.

You'll have the opportunity to see more than 40 different points of interest on this bus tour, and you can explore every part of this country.

Important destinations to stop by on this tour include The Burj Khalifa, Souk Madinat, The Palm, and Dubai Marina.

You can look over three different routes: the City Tour (red), the Beach Tour (green), or the Marina Tour (blue).

With your Big Bus ticket, you'll gain admittance to the "Flamingo Lagoon Discovery" trip, which gives you the chance to watch exotic flamingos in the wildlife.

2 Dhow Dinner Cruise Dubai Creek

An ideal way to start your first day in Dubai is with a wonderful journey on the Dhow dinner cruise vessels.

On this two-hour voyage, you'll set sail along the Dubai Creek, which is a famous waterway that divides the downtown zone into two distinct banks.

You'll get the chance to see top nearby sights, including the National Bank of Dubai, the Chamber of Commerce Building, and various waterfronts.

3 Water Activities

Located at the Sofitel, Palm Resort & Spa, they offer a broad range of watersport activities in the amazing place of Palm Jumeirah.

By booking a water activity from SeaYou, you can fully experience the wonders of the Palm with a paddleboarding or windsurfing session or a guided kayak tour.

SeaYou's instructors offer assistance and are extremely helpful.

They also guide beginners and encourage more experienced participants when they perform demonstrations to help everyone.

4 Desert Safari

Dubai is dominated by desert and many of the best outdoor offerings are staged amid the rolling sand dunes. The possibilities are endless, have a traditional desert experience on a camel or horse. For something a little more heart-pumping, try navigating the dunes in a Jeep, dune buggy or quad bike. Perfect place to cross sand boarding off your bucket list too.
