Check Out Dubai Horse Races

The United Arab Emirates is host to six incredible horse racing tracks, including the Meydan Racecourse, Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club

Jebel Ali Racecourse, Sharjah Equestrian & Racing Club, Al Ain Racecourse, and Jinma Lake Racecourse.

In Dubai, you will find the Jebel Ali Racecourse and the Meydan Grandstand where the Dubai World Cup is held. The event is one of the most extravagant and luxurious horse races in the world. However, gambling remains illegal in the UAE so you will not be able to place any bets on the horses. Those looking to gamble can browse the latest real money USA online casino sites but remember, online gambling can be illegal too so check local laws.

Visit a sports bar

If horse racing is not your thing, Dubai is host to a wide range of sports and beach bars. Barasti Beach Bar is a Dubai institution, situated on Jumeirah Beach near the skydiving runway. Enjoy a cold cocktail or beer and watch the endless stream of skydiving planes take off and land over the ocean.

The Underground Pub in Jumeriah Beach Residence is a British sports bar where ex-pats can catch up on overseas football matches. It also offers all the British pub classics for those missing a bite from home.

The Dubai Gold Souk

The Dubai Gold Souk is the go-to-market for most tourists visiting the city. It’s a beautiful traditional market dating back hundreds of years with many wares on offer other than just gold. Find precious stones, fabrics, Arabic designs, and silver and gold jewelry.

It can get quite busy at times and the merchants are quite pushy, so be prepared for crowds and a bit of harassment. However, if you are into the exciting, buzzing market vibe, it will be perfect for you.

Aquaventure at Atlantis The Palm

Visit Aquaventure water park where you can swim with dolphins and feed stingrays. Try out some of the insanely steep water slides for an adrenaline rush that will keep you going all day. The Leap of Faith, in particular, sends you hurtling through a glass tunnel while sharks swim in the surrounding water!

To relax afterward, take a stroll around Atlantis The Palm, visiting one of the many high-quality restaurants like Nobu or take a peek in The Lost Chambers aquarium. Open daily from 10am – 6pm.

WE SAID THIS: The lockdown has pretty much cancelled 2020 but this will all have to end eventually, and when it does, Dubai will be waiting!
