We strive through the entire week only to enjoy ourselves during the weekend. There aren't enough days on weekends. No one likes to stay at home and sulk. A well-spent weekend motivates us to work better and excel in the coming week.

One of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates is Dubai. The city has not always been as dazzling with futuristic technology and luxurious possibilities as it is now. There are many tourist destinations, attractions, and heritage sites in Dubai. From Burj Khalifa and Palm Jumeirah to Atlantis Waterpark, Burj Al Arab and Ice Rink, there is much more Dubai offers than just opulent retail malls and five-star resorts. Some of the things to do in Dubai this weekend are listed in this article.

What are the best things to do in Dubai?

Start your Saturday morning at Palms and Cream

Shoreline Apartments Peaches & Cream's Miami-themed beach club is offering a fantastic deal that can be one of the cool things to do in Dubai. Enjoy an hour of water sports such as stand-up paddling, diving or kayaking for 100 AED per person, followed by a hearty breakfast. You can choose from a wide range of options like truffle toast, scrambled or poached eggs, a creamy mushroom toast, an acai bowl and a pitaya smoothie bowl, as well as tea or cold brew and water.

Get in Line for a Fulfilling Saturday brunch at Anantara Downtown

What are weekends without enjoying brunch? The newly launched Saturday brunch at Anantara Downtown Dubai Hotel is centred on street food and graffiti. The Nine7One Courtyard hosts the open-air brunch, a street food buffet from 1 to 4 p.m. You can have spaghetti made on the live station, as well as steamed blue crabs, Argentinian shrimps, and other seafood options.

Enjoy a Majestic Sunday Sunrise at Aura SkyPool

You may go to Aura Sky Pool between 6 and 9 in the morning for a swim and breakfast in the clouds, which is a pleasant way to spend your Sunday. The $250 “Rise with Aura" sessions let you plunge into the 360-pool as the sun rises. At an additional price, you can also buy breakfast from the menu and enjoy it with a view.

Magical Safari by Magic Phil

With a brand-new network show that will make everyone laugh, the most well-known magician in the UAE is offering a promising start to the holiday season. Expect plenty of humour with robins, polar bears, and other festive season fun as Magic Phil attempts to rescue the Starlight Safari from indefinitely closing.

Holiday Season Cuisine at Time Out Market

Visit Time Out Market to sample limited-edition meals from all the famous restaurants. The complete list is available online. But, the Ahh Bisto Bird burger from Pickl is a must-try. Indisputably, it is one of the best things to do in Dubai this weekend.

Visit Dubai Opera 

If lucky, you can get the opportunity to listen to the world-famous musician Guy Manoukian at Dubai Opera. His music combines contemporary and classic Middle Eastern riffs. Manoukian is a Lebanese-Armenian musician, composer and pianist and is quite famous amongst residents of Dubai.

Spend your Saturday Evening Film Watching in the Desert

You can also get the opportunity to attend the Film in the Wilderness festival at Al Marmoom Desert Conservation Reserve. You can participate in short film screenings by UAE directors amongst the dunes. Three films are awarded as winners of the Al Marmoom Short Film Competition in a celebration of local directors from the MENA region. In addition to watching the competing short films, there are workshops for children, group meetings and training seminars for independent filmmakers, as well as a number of museum exhibits and art shows.


Check out these things to do in Dubai this weekend with your family or loved ones. You will appreciate these memories in the years to come because of these experiences. Apart from the shopping and well-known restaurants and attractions, having a unique schedule like this would make your weekend trip to Dubai more enjoyable.
