Top Day Trips from Dubai

Top Day Trips from Dubai

While Dubai has plenty of attractions, it’s well worth discovering other parts of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Arabian Peninsula while you’re there. Head out of town to discover Abu Dhabi’s 21st-century attractions, the UAE’s picturesque east coast, and more. Here are some of our top day-trip recommendations for Dubai.

 

Abu Dhabi – about 87 miles (140 kilometers) away

The UAE capital of Abu Dhabi lies south of Dubai and mixes futuristic architecture with cutting-edge leisure attractions. Highlights include the modern, all-marble Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the skyscraper-lined Corniche, the Ferrari World theme park, and the Louvre Abu Dhabi—a world-class art museum crowned by a sunlight-filtering dome. Visitors can choose from a host of group or private day trips that take them around the sights by coach, minivan, or private car.

 

Ferrari World, Abu Dhabi – about 70 miles (112 kilometers) away

Ferrari World is the world’s biggest indoor theme park, with more than 30 Ferrari-inspired rides and attractions. Located on Yas Island just north of Abu Dhabi, it boasts the Formula Rossa—the world’s fastest coaster—alongside racing simulators, multisensory experiences, race circuits, shops, and restaurants, all under a Ferrari-shield-shaped roof. Thrill-seekers and families can visit hassle-free courtesy of road trips from Dubai that include entry tickets.


Musandam Peninsula at Dibba or Khasab in Oman – about 94 miles (152 kilometers) away

Oman’s Musandam Peninsula lies just across the UAE border and offers a spectacular coastline of fjord-like bays, cliffs, and emerald-blue seas. Take a day trip from Dubai to Khasab or Dibba to cruise the shoreline by Arabian dhow boat, watching for dolphins and stopping to snorkel along the way.

 

Al Ain – about 92 miles (148 kilometers) away

The traditional seat of Emirati sheikhs, the UAE’s mountain-backed Al Ain is one of its most picturesque and park-laden cities. Travelers can explore the Garden City free from any transport worries by choosing from a variety of full-day tours: seeing everything from Bronze Age ruins to the city’s fort, museums, and Jebel Hafeet mountain.

 

East Coast and Fujairah – about 92 miles (148 kilometers) away

Overlooking the Gulf of Oman, the UAE’s less developed east coast and city of Fujairah offer a window into old Arabia. Day trips take you across the craggy Hajar Mountains to this beautiful region to visit fishing villages, Fujairah Fort, and sandy beaches where you can enjoy everything from snorkeling sessions to boat trips.
