The Cool Girl’s Guide to Dubai
You might often hear that Dubai has not soul or culture, but that mostly comes from people who never visited this place or didn’t know how to enjoy it. If you’re a chic lady looking for a fun, dynamic and super cool vacation spot, this city will show its true face and shower you in luxury, crazy entertainment and class. So here’s an easy cool girl’s guide to Dubai that will ensure you have a top-notch experience.
Go on a desert safari
If you’re truly a cool girl, you probably love a bit of excitement on your trips, so book a desert safari when in Dubai. The tour will start off with an exciting ride over the dunes in 4×4 jeeps which guarantees to get your blood pumping. After the dune bashing, you can stop to watch the sun setting over the sand and end the trip in picturesque Arabian camp. If you love to be outdoors, this is the first thing you must do upon your arrival in Dubai.
Seeing Dubai from the water is a whole new experience, so make sure to take a boat trip. There are both group boat trips if you’re traveling with friends and small private boats for ultimate solo relaxation. Bigger groups can book a private yacht charter that will take you out of Dubai Marina and around The Palm. From the water, you can get the best views of Burj Al Arab and The Atlantis and take plenty of amazing photos as you soak up the sun.
Have a makeover
If you want to recover from your desert and sailing trips, you need to relax at one of Dubai’s lux spas. Opt for a full facial that will recover your skin and give it a nice glow. For those of you who require a little more help, you can always find an aesthetic clinic in Dubaithat offers everything from face and body lifts to injectables and various plastic surgery treatments. After your makeover, you’ll not only look fresh but feel better than ever. Your confidence will definitely show on your Instagram photos!
Get on top of the world
This activity just has to be on your Dubai must-do list. ‘At The Top’ Burj Kalifa Sky observation deck will give you the most memorable views of the city. If you’re not scared of heights, you’ll truly enjoy this one-of-a-kind experience. After you catch your breath from that amazing view, you can hit the Atmosphere bar on the 122ndfloor of the Burj Kalifa and enjoy a tasty cocktail at the world’s tallest ladies’ night. This will put any other girl’s night out to deep shame!
Party at the beach
Beach life, and especially beach clubs, is huge in Dubai so you won’t have any trouble finding the right spots to party and chill. Nasimi Beachon The Palm has a super cool scene with a bunch of gorgeous people and world-class DJs to get you dancing. Even though there are so many high-end beach clubs, you will still find a spot to dance barefoot in your bikini with a cold cocktail in hand. You’ll feel absolutely fab. If you prefer to chill and Zen out, make sure to reserve a beach bed for maximum comfort. Nasimi Beach might not be cheap, but it’s certainly a must-visit spot on your cool girl’s vacation list.
End your trip with a Friday brunch
No Dubai vacation can end without a fancy Friday brunch. Since Dubai’s work week goes from Sunday to Thursday, everyone will be hurrying to relax while grazing on tasty food and sipping on tea. This activity is super popular in Dubai, so chic new places keep on popping up all the time—you won’t have any trouble finding a perfect brunch spot. If you’re looking for something super lux and fancy with the unlimited food and champagne, hit Al Qasr in Madinat Jumeirah complex. This hotel has an awesome view of the Burj Al Arab and is designed to look and feel like a first-class Arabic palace. If money’s not an issue for you, Al Qasr is the perfect brunch spot for you!
As you spend your time in Dubai, you’ll surely find many other fun things to do from shopping to having a splash in waterparks. Love it or hate it, you can’t deny that Dubai is a fun place to spend your cool-girl vacation and chill like a true queen that you are.
