Free things to do in Dubai/UAE

Now, we’re not assuming you’re strapped for cash but chances are you’ve had a hectic month and you just want to get out and do something nice and FREE for a change.

Wouldn’t it be nice?

Well, you’re in luck.  Combine free things to do with a cheap hotel in Dubai and see how great you can have it.

Here are our top picks for free things to do!

Go To The Beach

Dubai has some truly lovely beaches and one of the best in Dubai is Jumeirah Beach Residence.  This is one of the most popular beaches in Dubai and there’s a lot of great stuff nearby.  You’ll be able to enjoy juice, burgers and gelato while you’re at the beach.  Be warned though, the juice, burgers and gelato aren’t free.

Go Free Shopping

Wait, what?  Free shopping?  That doesn’t exist.

Well, you’ve clearly never looked at Dubizzle’s Free Stuff section.  Once you’ve sifted through all of the weird family visa offers, you can actually find a few gems hidden in there.  You’ll see plenty of kid’s toys, garden furniture and some other bits and bobs.  Sometimes it’s a bit of fun to just see what the most interesting thing you can find is, for free.  Challenge your friends.

Jebel Hafeet

One of the most popular landmarks in The Garden City, it’s the second highest peak in the UAE.  The 11km winding road is perfect for driving or if you’re one of those health nuts, cycle or run.

From the top of the Jebel Hafeet you’ll have lovely views of Oman and Al Ain.

There’s a café at the top and is home to the Mercure Grand Jebel Hafeet Hotel, a four-star hotel set atop the peaceful mountain.

Rooftop Gardens Movies at Wafi

Every Sunday at 8:30PM you can join other likeminded folks on the Rooftop Gardens at the Wafi Pyramids to enjoy some incredible movies whilst reclining on Wafi’s signature beanbags.  Popcorn, hotdogs and soft drinks are available at the Rooftop Gardens.  You’ll be paying for the munchies but the movie is free!

Outdoor Gym

We all want to get fit, don’t we?  Head down to one of the many parks in Dubai, such as Al Barsha Pond Park, to enjoy the jogging track around the lake.  Utilise the pull-up bars, sit-up benches and rowing machines dotted around the park.

Horse Racing

Horse races are always a great time out for everyone and the best times out for everyone are free!  You can sometimes take advantage of free admission to the Meydan Grandstand to view the Thursday night races.

If you’re a visitor to Dubai or a resident, you can combine many of these free activities with your cheap hotel in Dubai to make a remarkably memorable holiday even better while beating your budget.
