When the weather is this nice, there really is no reason why you should be indoors. Dubai’s winter is breezy and beautiful, so step outside the four walls of your home and enjoy the fun outdoor activities that Dubai has to offer. To make it a bit easier for you, we’ve listed seven great options.
The Ripe Market at Zabeel Park
Ripe is already a bit of an institution among foodies and craft hunters in the UAE. It aims to support local businesses – from farmers to jewellery designers – with markets in Dubai and Abu Dhabi that also offer hours of mooching opportunities. Where else do organic fruit, raw honey, kimonos and clutch bags sit side by side quite so effortlessly?
When: 9am-4pm, Friday, January 26
Where: Zabeel Park
Shop at Dubai Flea Market
Dubai was missing a quirky flea market, a place to rummage through and pick up some pre-loved treasures – the sort New York, Berlin and Oslo do so well. Think battered furniture, textiles, ceramics, clothes, crafts and antiques – the only rule is that everything on sale is second hand. Look out for people with a plane ticket home – you could get some ruthlessly low prices.
When: From 1pm, Friday, January 26
Where: Al Barsha Pond Park
