Our first international trip was to the vibrant and dynamic city of Dubai. We were determined to make the most of our time there, and we spent seven action-packed days exploring everything the city had to offer. From the stunning architecture to the bustling markets, we were captivated by the energy and excitement of Dubai. We were also impressed by the diversity of experiences the city offered, from adventurous desert excursions to relaxing beach days. It was an unforgettable trip, and we can’t wait to return to Dubai again.
Our trip to Dubai was short but sweet, and while seven days wasn’t enough time to see everything the city has to offer, we were able to experience some of its most memorable highlights. We were careful to balance our desire to see and do as much as possible with the need to stick to a budget, and we were pleased with the variety of activities we were able to enjoy without breaking the bank. From exploring the city’s famous markets to taking in the stunning views from the top of the Burj Khalifa.
As travelers who have experienced Dubai firsthand, we highly recommend checking out some of the must-see places and experiences the city has to offer. These are just a few of the many incredible sights and experiences that Dubai has to offer, and we encourage you to explore and discover them for yourself.

One of the standout experiences of Tripjodi’s Dubai trip was waking up early to enjoy breakfast with a view from the top of the Burj Khalifa. The cost of 149 AED per person was well worth it, as we were treated to a breathtaking view of the city as the sun rose and the morning fog lifted from the skyscrapers. It was a truly magical experience that we highly recommend to anyone visiting Dubai. If you want to get the most out of your trip to the city, be sure to add this experience to your itinerary.

Love Lake – Al Qudra
What comes to mind when you think of the greenest places in Dubai? Most of you would answer, “The Miracle Garden Dubai”, and you could be just right if you have not yet seen Love Lake Dubai.
Love Lake is located in the midst of Dubai’s arid desert, making its lush green surroundings stand out in stark contrast to the surrounding landscape. From the shores of the heart-shaped lake, the only visible greenery is the dense vegetation that surrounds it, making it feel like an oasis in the midst of a sea of sand. The unique setting of Love Lake adds to its charm and beauty.
Spending the night camping at Love Lake in Dubai was a truly special experience. We set up our tents on the shores of the heart-shaped lake and watched the stars twinkling overhead. The next morning, we were greeted by the stunning sight of the lake and the surrounding greenery, which provided a peaceful and serene atmosphere. It was a great way to connect with nature in the midst of the bustling city of Dubai.
Its a free experience, as you carry your own tents or borrow from a friend in Dubai and then drive to Love Lake.

Desert Safari and Dune Bashing
As first-time visitors to the Middle East, we were eager to experience the traditional desert safari. We decided to go to a camp near Sharjah, where we were able to learn more about how Arabs spend their weekends. The cost of the safari was 30 AED per person, which included dinner, a free camel ride, and the opportunity to dress like an Arab as we reached directly to their pickup point in the desert. It was a truly unique and unforgettable experience, and we were able to gain insight into the culture and traditions of the region.
A typical desert safari in Dubai begins in the late afternoon and takes visitors on a thrilling journey across the desert. Along the way, there are several stops for photography and to enjoy the beautiful sunset. After sunset, the tour continues with a dune drive to the campsite, where visitors can participate in activities such as camel riding, sandboarding, and henna design. The evening concludes with a barbecue dinner, shisha, and performances of a fire show and a Tanura dance around the campfire. It is a truly immersive and unforgettable experience.
