Free Things to Do In Dubai

Surprisingly, Dubai, a city which is known for its opulence, also offers many things which can be done for free. Dubai’s exquisite shopping malls maybe a shopaholic’s mecca, but they are also known to be architectural marvels. Isn’t it the experience that counts more than the haul?

Dubai may now be a rich man’s relaxation hub, but there are parts of it that still reminds you of the fishing village that it once was. Dubai’s Bastakia quarter, which is a mesh of Persian buildings, is home to many beautiful art galleries which are a must visit. If Dubai’s Jumeirah is promoted as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’, its shore is no less enticing. Dubai beach is open to anyone and everyone and you can spend hours on it for free.

Dubai’s obsession with fitness has led to the emergence of cycling groups, wellness centres, weight loss clubs and yoga classes which either provide free membership or free trial passes. When in Dubai, a visit to the Al Quoz, which is the largest open gallery in the world, is a must. Entry to the gallery is free. If you wish to enjoy a classic without having to buy a ticket and popcorn, Pyramid Rooftop Gardens is the place to be. The area holds free screening of one film each week.

The truth is Dubai has more than just what it is promoted for. Wake up the explorer in you and start searching.
