10 THINGS TO DO IN DUBAI IF YOU ARE ON A
SHOESTRING BUDGET

JEBEL HAFEET
It is a mountain which offers great views of the
region and it can be accessed by vehicle or foot
for free. Take an elevator to the top of the high
rises to enjoy serene views of Dubai. The tallest
structure in the world, Burj Khalifa stands 2717
feet over the city. To visit its highest
observation deck, the cost ranges from 35 to 82
USD per person and long lines could also cost
valuable time. If it seems very expensive, you
can have more extensive views at Jebel Hafeet. It
is around 16 miles long and spread over several
miles. It is a winding route to take you around
3900 ft. above the sea level. If you are brave
enough to hit this dangerous road at night, you
can explore some serene sights of the city
lights. More

WAFI PYRAMIDS
If you are on a shoestring budget, you can
definitely make it the part of your itinerary as
it offers Movies under the Stars which is free
at 830 pm on Sundays. The outdoor theater here
offers access to drinks and food and beanbag
chairs. You can also enjoy at other entertainment
venues but they are not free. But you can enjoy
your priceless moments here and soak in the
atmosphere for free. You can also dine in some
good restaurants offering Asian, Italian and
Continental dishes on the passageways. More

DUBAI MALL
Facing the iconic Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Mall is
the largest mall in the world. This fact itself
makes it worth to become a tourist destination
and it is free to explore the vast shopping areas
here. But you need to do some planning to visit
the mall. This shopping hub is stretched over 5.4
million sq. ft, with whopping 1200 stores which
attract 54 million visitors every year. The
numbers are rising significantly. Enjoy some of
the attractions here like a 245-ton aquarium,
10000 sq. ft. sweet shop, and a huge amusement
park indoors. Observations are free in these
attractions. More

FOUNTAIN SHOW
fountain show dubai. When you come outside the
mall, explore the well-known dancing fountains,
aka the Largest Performing Fountain in the
world. This attraction will make you remember
the Bellagio show in Las Vegas, with 50 color
projectors and 6000 lights. The show is staged
from 6 to 11 pm, and also on midday periods
sometimes and the length of the complete show is
around 5 minutes. Also visit the Waterfront
Promenade outside the mall. More

RAS AL KHOR WILDLIFE SANCTUARY
This wildlife sanctuary is really a bird
watchers paradise as it has a lot of bird
species to explore and is located at the mouth of
Dubai Creek. You can explore plenty of flamingos
in cooler months. Entry is free to this wildlife
sanctuary. Dubai is also imagined as rather
artificial and plastic. But this site is one of
the few natural attractions here. It might fill
the whole day for a bird watcher. It is worth a
quick look for others and also dont forget your
camera. More

GOLD SOUK
As the name suggests, Gold Souk is a gold market
where you will find a lot of gold jewelries and
products which are totally unmatched. Do your
research if you want to shop here. Not every deal
advertised will help you. Government regulates
the products. So, worry about price, not
authenticity. You should know the actual market
value of the product before shopping here. There
is also a room for bargaining here. Well, just
strolling and observing wont cost anything. You
can see diamonds and gold jewelry here that are
from other parts of Asia and the Middle East.

JUMEIRAH BEACH
It houses some of the most exclusive hotels in
Dubai. Guests pay hefty fees to enjoy world-class
services and soft sands of the beach. But you
dont need 5-star stay in its public portion. You
can enter its public portion to relax or enjoy
the barbecue. Consider the average high
temperatures in summer, which go high around
100oF. Bring some right footwear as walking on
the sand can cause burns in those conditions.

HERITAGE VILLAGE
Also known as Bastakiya, Al Fahidi is located in
the heart of Dubai where you can explore what
Dubai was like before the high-rise skyscrapers
over the past few decades. Here, you can explore
the lifestyle here in the 1600s. The Etihad
Museum nearby costs merely 10 for adults but it
is still worth a visit. It has innovative
exhibits of the development of the UAE. More
