7 outdoor activities to try in Dubai this weekend

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

Al Qudra Lakes
If the sound of over 100 species of birds (including flamingos and swans), wildlife such as desert foxes and the oryx, a lake and lots of greenery excites you, set your Google maps to ‘Al Qudra Lakes’. Located in the middle of Seih Al Salam desert and Bab Al Shams, the beloved spot is perfect for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Added bonus? It’s completely free of charge.
Where: Saih Al Salam Desert
