If you’re a cruise tourist planning a trip to Dubai’s Business Bay (since it is the fifth coolest neighbourhood in the world), here are five cool things to do in an afternoon in Business Bay.
- Ride an abra
Cruise along the Dubai Water Canal in a traditional abra – you’ll even get to go under its unique motion-sensored waterfall.
- Stroll along the canal boardwalk
Check out Dubai’s very own Venice in the making, and get plenty of snaps for your ‘gram of the beautifully designed bridges.
- Visit the world’s tallest hotel
You’ll find plenty to keep you entertained within the 72 storeys of JW Marriott Marquis. Feeling adventurous? Try the Wanderlust brunch at Garden.
- Go restaurant-hopping at The Oberoi
This luxury hotel doubles as an excellent foodie spot, with great options like Italian restarant Matto, Latin American hotspot Waka and rooftop bar Iris.
- Explore Bay Avenue
There’s a lovely park here with a jogging track and playgrounds, and in the winter months you can pick up fresh local produce at the Baker & Spice Farmers Market.
