25 Ultimate Free Things to Do when in Dubai

When we talk about a tour or vacation, we should also think about how much money we’ll spend. Is there anything we can do today for free, especially while traveling? As an example, suppose you go to Dubai, one of the most opulent cities in the world. Can you imagine how expensive it could be?

My hubby and I are Filipino ex-pats based in Dubai, UAE. We live a frugal lifestyle as much as possible to have something to use in case of emergency. Like any other couple, we want to ensure that our hard-earned money is put to good use.

On the other hand, we enjoy exploring and traveling. Since we live in Dubai, one of our pleasures is exploring and visiting free tourist spots in Dubai where you don’t need to pay an entrance fee to get in. Or at least pay a super minimal amount if needed. Here’s a list of the ultimate free things to do when in Dubai.

Wrapping up

How cool is that? Along with those tourist spots, you will definitely be able to take unlimited selfies and groupies! There are bikes and scooters to rent in some of the mentioned places. Otherwise, you need to prepare yourself for boundless walking. If you are with a toddler, bring a baby trolley.

You will meet diversified cultures and communities. It’s beautiful to wander around in Dubai, meet people, taste some great foods, learn from the experience, and make memories with your loved ones for free!
