Things to do in Dubai in October


Dubai is a very welcoming city that has got everything from fun, food and frolic. The city of the sky rise buildings has transformed itself completely from the desert to a tourist destination stop. Tourists flock to Dubai from all over the world for the sales bargains, sunshine and the Burj Khalifa! With the weather becoming more pleasant in October, the peak season is upon us. The best time to visit Dubai is from October to April. October onwards, the temperature starts to reduce with less humidity making it the ideal time to visit the city. Here is our list of top updated things to do in Dubai in October in 2022. 

  1. Global Village Season 27

Global Village is set to open for the season on October 25, 2022 with yet another innovative experience: The Global Village Big Balloon. Be the first to experience this aerial attraction and join us in line this October. Of course, while we are there, we are so sure to get a dose of a fun-filled journey to Ripley’s Odditorium, 4D moving theatre, the Amazing Mirror Maze as well as the Peter Rabbit Adventure Zone.

  1. Inside the Burj Al Arab Tour 

October can still be hot during the day, so our recommendation is to duck the heat and book a walking tour of Inside the Burj Al Arab. Burj Al Arab is one of the top iconic hotels of the world and has a distinctive sail-shaped silhouette. It is built on a man-made island and rises 321 meters above the sea level, offering great views of the sea. Gold interiors, lavish restaurants, great afternoon high teas, and its own helipad- that has hosted Roger Federer and Tiger Woods!You can also check out our video on Inside Burj Al Arab for up to date information on this experience. 

3. Music Moments at the Dubai Opera

Dubai’s October line-up of music and live shows already has us dancing with excitement. Whatever it takes to get your groove on, you’re sure to find something to enjoy with a vast variety of musicians, artists, dancers and performers queuing up to keep Dubai at the top of the charts. Dubai Opera is kick starting the season with the famous Footloose musical while Coke Studio comes back to the CocaCola Arena. 

4. Infinity des Lumieres

Spend your day indoors, air-conditioned and entertained in the largest immersive digital art display of the Middle East. Infinity des Lumeires brings art to large scale life via 130 projectors and moving images display. Be wowed by the works of Kandinsky, Gaudi and Klee while taking a break from the heat, right in the center of the city in Dubai Mall (Level 2).

5. Visit the Palm Jumeirah- The Atlantis, The Pointe and the View at the Palm

Explore one of Dubai’s Architectural Triumphs- the Palm Jumeirah in many different ways this year! Sky dive over it, elevator to its highest point at the View, have lunch atop the SushiSamba gallery-style all glass restaurant, or enjoy it ground level at the Pointe with a fountain show. The Pointe is a brand-new promenade for lovely strolls and another spot to watch the gorgeous dancing fountains – the Palm is now transforming from a mainly residential place to one of the top hangouts in the city. The Pointe couldn’t be in a better location, directly across from Atlantis, imagine the views!

Atlantis The Palm, Dubai, the luxury hotel is located on the Palm Jumeirah. This was the first resort to be built on the island and shows distinctive elements of the Arabian world. The hotel has a nautical theme and consists of 1539 rooms.  It is complemented by the Aqua venture water park and the Nasimi Beach, which frequently plays host to concerts and other events.

There are lots of exciting activities that make Atlantis beach resort the epicentre of adventure and the greatest holiday experience ever. You can swim with dolphins at Dolphin Bay or meet the sea lion at the Sea Lion Point or visit the home to 65,000 incredible marine animals in the Lost Chamber Aquarium.
