Want To Explore The Best Of Dubai In 3 Minutes & 45 Seconds?

Here's everything that's worth the hype in this city of the future.

Let’s take a quick poll – how many of you have stopped over at Dubai, but have never actually ventured outside the airport? There’s a sprawling city out there just waiting to be explored, one filled with adventure, style and a whole lot of charm. We here at AWOL recently visited this bustling hub to guide you through our must-do activities while in Dubai – from checking out the view from the tallest building in the world to exploring the old city streets of the Old Town – this city will surely get your heart racing, in more ways than one. Ever wanted to scuba dive alongside around 65,000 marine animals? What about sandboard down the sprawling dunes of the Arabian desert? There’s so much to do in Dubai, the hardest part will be trying to fit it all in.

Check out our video below for some seriously cool Dubai inspo – you’ll be extending that next stopover for sure.
