Why You Should Go For A Dhow Cruise in Dubai Marina
Dubai Marina is a spectacle of modern engineering. An artificial canal that snakes along the Persian Gulf before linking to it, Dubai Marina stretches for almost two miles and harbours some of the most impressive architectural feats along its shores. Some of the skyscrapers include Infinity Tower, Ocean Heights, Marina Pinnacle and Sulafa Tower - all located in the "Tallest Block in the world". Together, they portray a stunning sight of Dubai, one that has to be experienced.
The dhows in which the cruise take place are a unique coming together of the old and new. Mostly made of wood, these traditional boats have evolved from the tiny sailed boats of the earlier centuries to the huge luxury cruising vessels of today. With facilities such as indoor-outdoor seating and 360-degree glass walls, dhow cruises are one of the most popular recreational experiences in Dubai, and surely one of the best way to view the city of Dubai.
What to Expect on Your Dubai Marina Dhow Cruise
Once you arrive at the location, you will board your dhow and embark on an hour-long sightseeing cruise of Dubai Marina.
Cruising Dubai Marina is a unique and fulfilling experience. Carved out of the Persian Gulf shoreline, Dubai Marina features one of the most stunning skylines in the world. As you cruise down Dubai Marina, you will be able to view the exclusive Dubai Marina residences, multiple five-star hotels with their amazing architecture, the promenade of The Dubai Marina Yacht Club, Dubai Marina Mall and even the Palm Jumeirah.
All this while, traditional Arabic music will be played for your entertainment. The dhow cruise will finally return to its pier after a cruising for an hour.
