Dubai is full of culture. It’s a city known for its lively nightlife and luxurious shopping scene. But surely, if you’re visiting as a couple, you want to do something a little more exciting than shop and dance? Let us guide you to the best and most romantic spots in this part of the United Arab Emirates.
Al Dhabi Stables
Al Dhabi Stables are well-known for offering an authentic experience. You can ride through the desert with your partner at many different times of day. Most enjoy a ride as the sun rises for an unforgettable display of scenery. The team at Al Dhabi Stables will help even the most novice rider work with their horse, and you’ll be able to spend some time with your beautiful steed before you set out. These stables offer a genuine desert hacking experience, nothing more, nothing less.
Hot Air Balloon rides are a breath-taking experience. Balloon Adventures take this unusual activity to a new level. Your day will begin before the sun rises, when company representatives will pick you up from your accommodations and take you to the take-off point that they have set-up in the desert. After your safety briefing, you will begin your journey with a trained balloon pilot. But that’s not all. A falconer rides with you, as well, and at the right time, their falcon will be released so that you can see the magic of their flying abilities while you’re in the sky alongside them.
If you’re looking for a calmer activity to fill your romantic getaway, then take a cruise through the Dubai Creek. Dhow Cruise will take you across these gentle waves while you and your loved one dine on a sophisticated dinner. This is a truly perfect way to spend an evening in Dubai, and you’ll benefit from personalized service, as well as live entertainment during the short 2-hour cruise.
Overnight Desert Safari
For something special, you can gaze at the stars in the desert with your partner. Watch the sun go down as you ride on camels and watch live performances as you travel to your destination. You can find these tours easily, and they can be booked before you depart to Dubai. If you want to enjoy drinks at the bar during this activity, avoid Ramadan, as some services are unavailable during this crucial time. This experience can also include sandboarding and a BBQ dinner; as if a starlit journey through the desert didn’t sound amazing enough already.
Among all of these places to take your other half in Dubai, we highly recommend stopping by Pierchic – a restaurant that sits on stilts at the end of a pier which overlooks the Gulf. It’s an iconic spot for locals and tourists and serves some of the best seafood around. Of course, for a restaurant that hovers above the water, you would hope that it had a sea-theme for its menu. Enjoy an ocean-side table after sunset or during the afternoon for the best experience.
