Arts and crafts
By: Dubai Home Festival. Today is the festival's final day, so it's your last chance to get your hands on some of the best arts, crafts and homeware from creators at the RIPE Home Edition Market, an extra-special collaboration with independent retailers at Dubai Design District (d3) and the ARTE Makers' Market. Head to Nakheel Mall on the Palm from 10am to 7pm to view amazing homegrown concepts. It's taking place on the ground floor area outside the Depachika Food Hall.
On: From 10am
By: Melia Desert Palm.
Itís in the city, but not quite in the city; an exclusive equestrian lodge and a family-friendly get-together spot all at the same time: the Melia Desert Palm Dubai ticks all the boxes when it comes to planning a quick getaway. Surrounded by manicured polo lawns and gardens, stay in one of the field-view suites or enjoy a day at the luxurious pool. On: Every day
The great outdoors
By: Hatta Resorts.
In the mood for an eco-friendly adventure destination? The third season of Hatta Resorts and Hatta Wadi Hu is now on. It offers an array of activities ranging from glamping, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking to exploring the heritage of Hatta and indulging in Emirati culture. Rest your head at either the Hatta Sedr Trailers or Hatta Damani Lodges before trying out the 10-metre high Climbing Wall or Zip Line with dual lines.
On: Right now
Be Indiana Jones
By: Dreamscape, MOE. Unlike any virtual reality experience you could possibly imagine, the most advanced immersive technology on the planet at Dreamscape, Mall of the Emirates, will allow you to be Indiana Jones for a little while. So exclusive there are only four Dreamscape locations on Earth, Dubai is lucky enough to possess one of these state-of-the-art VR suites where you can explore an alien zoo and interact with the animals, jump on an underwater scooter and save a whale from danger, or burst through a cinema screen into a movie and grab some lost treasure before escaping on a seaplane. You have to see this to believe it. On: Every day (ages 10 and up).
