Dubai is a city that has several opportunities to shop, explore and visit some of the most exotic locations within the city. While it may take several days to visit all the exciting attractions here, all you need is a few hours with the help of a Dubai transit visa to stopover at some of these best places. In this article, we give you information on what you can do on a short stay here.

 

Dubai Duty Free shops

The Dubai duty free area is the best place for a quick shopping expedition. These shops will provide plenty of opportunities to shop for exotic and affordable items. With brands like Estée Lauder, Swarovski, Callaway, Chanel, Hermès, and Montblanc having their outlets here, visitors will have a variety of choices. With a Dubai transit visa, you can also window shop or you can buy gold items and jewelry from the local gold souks. The yellow gold variety is most common here amongst the selection of necklaces, earrings and bangles. For a more exciting opportunity, you can participate in the car and motorbike raffle. If you are ready to test your luck, for a 139 dollar ticket, you could be lucky enough to win an Aston Martin or Mercedes Benz. For a more interesting raffle, you can participate in the Millennium Millionaire raffle and become a millionaire over night.


Fun Tours Desert Safari

Dubai is a city that does not allow any opportunity to go waste and that includes a variety of adventure sports and events in the sandy deserts. With a Dubai transit visa, you can ride the sandy dunes in 4X4, sand ski, go dune bashing, or indulge in a picturesque photography. You can also go on sand safari with rides on a camel and have a delicious barbecue dinner. For a relaxing outing, you can opt for henna art on your hands and feet, watch a belly dance routine or just relax at the local bar. You can also indulge in a hot air balloon ride over the sandy dessert for an exciting adventure.


Dubai Creek

This is relatively close to the airport, and you can easily exit the airport to view this water body. This creek cuts through the city of Dubai and plays an important role in the establishment of the local historic culture and economy. Formally serving as a small port for marine vessels and excavation destinations for the pearl industry, the dredging work in this creek in the late 20th century changed its whole aspect. Now large vessels can sail through this water body allowing a lot of cruises and visitors to arrive here. Water taxies are a common sight here apart from providing a beautiful backdrop against the several buildings and landscapes.
