Welcome to Dubai – a city that’s never stops rolling. From gazing at edgy architecture, going on shopping extravaganzas to low-key creekside walks to unwind, there are a number of things to do in Dubai. The days could be filled with intriguing sights in the Old City or adrenalin packed hours at Legoland or dining at the hippest restaurants - a Dubai vacation can never be dull. Given that it lies in the middle of a sandy desert and at the edge of a flat coastline, Dubai is best explored in the cooler months between October and February. The weather is ideal during October, since it is the onset of winters. If you’re thinking what to do in Dubai in October, here are some of our picks.
Looking for an alternative way to see Dubai’s iconic landmarks? Seawings offers one of the most luxurious and immersive tours of the city. Sweeping views of architectural marvels like Burj Khalifa and Jumeirah palms, and the teal blue sea are the biggest highlight of seaplane tours of Dubai. You can choose from an express tour of 20 minutes or a 45 minutes aerial tour coupled with an on ground Dubai heritage tour that covers the old streets and the atmospheric shops that line them. The tours include a welcome drink at check-in and the company of seasoned guides to help you unravel the legends and history that surround the different sights.
Dune Buggy and other Outdoor Adventures
Dubai excursions are never complete without stepping in the desert on the outskirts of the city. October is the perfect time to hit the outdoor playground in Dubai. Activities can be planned with varying degrees of adventure, so the whole family can enjoy a day outdoor fun. Dune bashing, desert safari with a meal under the star-lit sky, sandboarding and desert quad biking ensure an adrenalin rush and time well spent.
Dubai Heritage Tour
A breathtaking take-off from the waters in a Seawings seaplane is only preview to the fantastic day that you can spend in the Old City of Dubai. The area is sprawled along the Dubai creek, where traditional dhows still promise a peek into the trading history of the city. A personal tour of the streets can be arranged with a guide, which takes you into the traditional neighbourhood, dotted with souks and street side dining options. This exclusive personal touris an extraordinary addition in October, especially in the cool evenings when the markets start bustling with travellers.
Day Excursions Around Dubai
Don’t limit yourself to Dubai when visiting. October offers perfect weather to visit places around. Notch up the luxury by taking a seaplane flight with Seawings to Sir Bani Yas Island, a day of golfing in some of the finest greens, taking off to Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi or Ziplining in Jebel Jais Mountains in Ras Al Khaimah. The trips are personalised with expert guides to lead you through a safari or a ziplining experience. All trips can be upgraded to add more sights, dining experiences or transfers back in the seaplane.
After having seen the exciting sightseeing places to see in Dubai, spend some time experiencing the innovative ocean activities in the city. Instructor led activities like kitesurfing, jet skiing, parasailing, fly fishing, deep sea diving and snorkelling are perfect for those who are interested in marine life or water adventures. October brings in pleasant weather which is ideal to spend at the powdery sands along the sea.
