Update on

If you are here, we are assuming you are planning a trip to the city of Gold. Dubai is a product of human wonders and one of the most popular tourist destinations across the globe.

The city is magnificent whenever you see it and from wherever you see it. However, the real magic unfolds when it gets dark and the lights come up.

The entire city begins to twinkle like stars. As a result, it is a sight to sore eyes at night. People plan their trips specifically to see the Burj Khalifa at night. But that is not it.

The nightlife, safaris, and many more attractions are all, the highlight of nightlife in Dubai. If your tickets are booked, outfits are ready, and your cameras are all serviced, we have the perfect to-do list for you.

Here are the top three experiences to have at night when visiting Dubai. Experience luxury and finesse at its best with our complete guide.

1. The Burj Khalifa

The Burj Khalifa

At night, Burj Khalifa is absolutely a different experience. It's an adrenaline rush and a dopamine rush all at once. Viewing Dubai from the top is a surreal experience. It is one of those moments when life does not feel real.

As a result, you must have a view from the top of Burj Khalifa. However, at night it is just a hundred times better. The entire city gets lit in beautiful colors and looks like stars spread on the ground. So I would suggest you add  Burj Khalifa to the things you want to do in Dubai at night.

2. Dubai Creek

What could be more magical than some water, a boat, food, music, and dance in the middle of Dubai's saltwater creek? A beautifully lit Dhow cruise carries you along the creek as it gets lit by the tall skyscrapers of Dubai.

This experience is unmissable. With great food, the best music, and the most beautiful scenery on the ship, you can experience luxury at its best. For a moment, you might feel like a part of some fake Hollywood film. But that is what Dubai at night is, especially at Dubai Creek. So do not miss it!

3. The Fountains of Dubai

If you are a Brad Pitt fan like me, you must have seen the movie Ocean's 11. The last scene with those magical fountains and light and sound show is what they are talking about.

As a result, this attraction is always at the top of every Dubai tourist's list. But light and sound show only happen at night. The darker it gets, the more you will enjoy it.

4. the Arabian Desert 

Dubai and desserts go hand in hand. One is incomplete without the other. Everyone who visits Dubai always spares a day for a desert safari on bikes and camels. But let me tell you how you can make it more worth your money. Plan your visit at night and watch the stars take over the beautiful dark sky.

Doesn't it feel like a dream to sit down in a desert with some good food and stargazing? So, you need to experience this dream!

5. Jumeirah Beach

Jumeirah Beach

I guess all of us have the story of Jumeirah Beach. Everyone made fun of Sheikh, but now he dazzles like a dream.

It is luxury at its best. It is home to numerous cafes and bars. So what could be a better time to visit this place, other than at night?

6. The Shopping Center

The Dubai Mall, also known as the international shopping destination, is one of the largest malls in the world. It not only has the majority of the top luxury brands, but also several attractions such as the famous 48-meter-long aquarium, skiing, and so on.

As soon as it gets dark, the mall lights with beautiful lights and the elegant stores begin to dazzle in luxury.

Visit it at night to see Dubai at its best.

7. Billionaire Estate

When talk about the things do in Dubai at night, this one is underrated. It is known for beautiful light and champagne. It is a visual treat for everyone.

Think about it: having the most delicious meal, with the best champagne in one hand and both eyes relishing the wonderful light show. Absolute luxury in action!

8. Al Seef 

Apart from the modern architecture and glam, if you want to experience the old-world charm of Dubai, Al Seef is unmissable. It is a must-visit spot at night with old-style homes carrying the history of Dubai.

It is on Dubai Creek. Fun, food, lights, and music with a zero-entry fee.

9. Dubai MotionGate

It is a well-known amusement park in Dubai at the Dubai Marina. Anyone who has watched any rom-com on Netflix knows how rom-com amusement parks transform at night. lit up in the most beautiful lights, with fun and laughter. Didn't the bar go up too high?

10. Global Village in Dubai

Global Village in Dubai

It looks like a scene straight out of Alladin. With a beautiful tomb-like structure. It brings together different cultures, food, and music under one roof. These beautiful structures are lit as soon as it gets dark.

As a result, the moment you step inside this Global Village, you will feel like you are in a Disney movie.

You can visit here during any hour of the day, but it just gets all the better at night.


Dubai is for everyone, but Dubai at night is mystical. People of all races, ethnicities, groups, and genders can enjoy this place without worry. There cannot be another place where luxury, food, glam, and music come together in one place.
