How to spend 1 day in Dubai

Once a desert, Dubai is now a bustling metropolis that attracts millions of international visitors every year. Are you interested in culture and history? Or maybe shopping the day away and heading to the top of the world's tallest building sounds more appealing? No matter your interests, Dubai surely has something to catch your attention. And if you only have one day in Dubai, we’ve got the perfect itinerary for you.

Early Morning: Stop and smell the roses in Dubai's Miracle Garden.

Start your day off bright and early in Dubai's impressive Miracle Garden, which opens at 9 am, before that bright Arab sun gets too hot.

The Miracle Garden is much more than just a garden. Perhaps you've seen photos of your friends in the famous Hearts Passage, elegantly framed by the heart-shaped floral structures that make up this romantic tunnel.

However, you can see plenty more miracles in the Miracle Garden besides the Hearts Passage. How about a 35-ton Mickey Mouse sculpture made of nearly 100,000 flowers? Or a life-size floral sculpture of an Emirates A380 jet? You'll also encounter a giant teddy bear and a 15-meter floral clock while exploring the garden. Keep in mind that attractions are subject to change with the seasons, so you never know what wonders you might find!

Late Morning: Soak up some culture at the Jumeirah Mosque.

If you are interested in learning some more about Islamic traditions and customs, the beautiful Jumeirah Mosque is well worth a visit.

Expect the architecture of the mosque itself to be breathtaking; it's a Dubai icon. Mosque representatives lead guided tours through the mosque six days a week, explaining Islamic traditions, holidays, rituals, etc. These tours start at 10 am.

Keep in mind that modest, culturally appropriate attire is an absolute must to enter the mosque. Women must wear a scarf on their head and keep their shoulders covered. Clothing is available to borrow if necessary.

Afternoon: Beat the heat in the Dubai Mall.

By noon, you'll probably want to take a break from that brutal Arab sun and head to the famous Dubai Mall. As one of the largest malls in the world with over 1200 shops, you can definitely “shop ‘til you drop” here. The Dubai Mall offers its visitors far more than just an incredible shopping experience – you can easily spend hours exploring all there is to offer.

If you're ready for lunch, you'll have plenty of dining options to choose from within the mall. You have multiple dining locations to pick from. Looking for a restaurant with a more interesting ambiance? Stop by the Rainforest Café, which has been designed to recreate the feel of a tropical rainforest. 

Are you ready for some entertainment after all the shopping and eating? Prepare yourself then, as The Dubai Mall is also home to a VR park, a 22-screen cinema, a haunted house, a 7-meter-high dinosaur fossil (“Dubai Dino”). One thing is certain, you won’t run out of things to do while you’re here.

Evening: Take in panoramic city views from Burj Khalifa.

From the mall, you can head straight to Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building and one of Dubai’s top attractions. Head to Level 148 to visit the observation deck At the Top, Burj Khalifa SKY – the world’s highest observation desk. Get some refreshments from the SKY lounge before you head down to At the Top, the 360-degree observation decks on Levels 125 and 124.

Make sure you book your tickets to the Burj Khalifa in advance in order to skip the long lines and to ensure the best prices.

Night: Marvel at the Dubai Fountain show.

Finish off your day by taking in the Dubai Fountain Show, located near the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa. In this impressive show, 6,000 lights and 22,000 gallons of water dance to music from around the world.

For an extra-special view of the show and the city's impressive night skyline, book a short boat ride in one of the traditional "abra" water taxis. It's a perfect way to relax and enjoy the show after a jam-packed day exploring Dubai.

My girlfriend and I had the most amazing desert experience with our guide Alam! He picked us up in our hotel and we directly connected and talked a lot! He told us a lot about Dubai and explained the things we were going to do. This was our second time in the desert in Dubai but this time was very special to us. We were 4 people in the car and enjoyed the trip. It was like a private tour just for us 4 :-) It couldn’t have been any better than this. Special thanks to Alam, we highly recommend him and this activity!

It was a great trip! Really enjoyed the whole experience. Our tour guide Rashid was absolutely wonderful, picked us up on time, took really good care of us and made sure we all had a fun time. The sunset was beautiful, so it was the perfect time to go, we took lots of photos. Highly recommend the experience and the tour guide.

Safari guide Mohammed was amazing! Super helpful and we had a fantastic ride! The red dunes and the dancers at the camp were amazing!
