Top 10 Free Things to Do in Dubai on Your Honeymoon
It is hard to believe that the Metropolis, adorned with skyscrapers, traditions and luxury can offer anything but free things. Fortunately, you have come to the right place because if you read on, you will come across the best 10 things to do on your Dubai honeymoon for free.
1) Dubai’s Dancing Fountains
After you’ve gone window shopping in the famous Dubai Mall, you can encounter a stunning fountain display. As the biggest performing fountains in the world, this free attraction is a must-see and is quite similar to the well-known Las Vegas Bellagio Show. The show is almost five minutes long and performs between the hours of 18:00 PM and 23:00 PM.
2) Ras Al Khor
Step in with your loved one in the wildlife haven of Ras Al Khor, home to a variety of extraordinary birds. With no entry fee this spot is perfect for you to witness the natural beauty of Dubai, separate from the bustling city life. Don’t forget your camera, especially during the cooler months when you can meet a plethora of flamingos.
3) Al Fahidi
Nestled in the heart of Dubai, the ancient district of Al Fahidi is the ideal place for you to experience the traditional ambience of the capital before it turned into its current cosmopolitan state. Walk down recreated alleys and roads, framed by restored architecture dating back to the 17th century. You can also explore the charming museums scattered around the area, which also don’t have admission fees.
4) Dubai by Foot
The amazing walking tour Dubai by Foot is completely free of charge and offers you the exclusive opportunity to learn more about Old Dubai. The tour is available at various times during the day and in six languages. It covers numerous attractions, some of which have been already mentioned in this list, such as the Al Fahidi district. It’s good to know that because the tour is free if you’ve enjoyed it, leaving a generous tip is recommended.
5) Jumeirah Beach
Jumeirah Beach might be mostly covered in luxurious hotels, however, you can still find a secluded public area for you to enjoy the pristine sands for free and indulge in lovely picnics, barbecues and relaxing times. During the summer, the temperatures can be quite high so you should come fully equipped and find deep shade.
6) Mary’s Catholic Church
Established in 1967, the unique St. Mary’s Catholic Church is the most ancient church in existence in Dubai. As such it is situated in Central Dubai so it will be quite easy for you to get to and offers its splendour for free.
7) Burj Al Arab Jumeirah
This state-of the-art construction is known as the tallest hotel in the world. Seeing the majestic Burj Al Arab Jumeirah from the outside is free for visitors. However, to visit and observe the stunning views of Dubai and azure waters of the Persian Gulf from the inside, you have to either stay or make a dining reservation at a cost. You can experience the highest level of opulence and lavish interiors at the one of the most expensive hotels in the world.
8) Infinity Tower
Infinity Tower also known as the Cayan tower is a modern architectural gem and has been one of the most photographed buildings in all of Dubai because of its extraordinary twisted design. Tourists have the opportunity to visit this beautiful residential building for free and experience the 90-degree conventional style of architecture.
9) Gold and Spice Souks
It will cost you nothing to take a stroll with you beloved down Al Khor Street and witness the unique, old-style gold and spice market. At the Gold Souks you will see astonishing gold jewellery and diamonds, representing the local area and other Middle Eastern and Asian lands. If you do decide to purchase, it’s best to do your research; as much as the market is regulated by the government, sometimes the prices aren’t the fairest and you should always try to bargain. You can also observe the beauty of the Spice Souks that present exclusive spices only found in Dubai.
10) Dubai Aquarium
The actual aquarium does require paying an admission fee and is definitely worth it due to its outstanding selection of marine life. However, you can also have quite a similar experience by viewing the main tank for free from outside the entrance of Dubai Mall.
