FREE PLACE No 01: THE GOLD SOUQ: (Souq means a market.)
Dubai Is know as a hub for GOLD. Ladies that’s where probably you wanna go. THE GOLD SOUQ MARKET. Gentlemen, please don’t freak out, but this certainly is a place everyone who visits Dubai should be visiting. The World’s Largest ring has been Displayed in one of the KANZ JEWELLERS. The ring holds Guinness Book of world records certificate. According to the news, the 21-carat ring weighs 64kgs & has around 5.1 Kgs of precious stones. The market itself glitters like gold in the evening with all the lights & displays from the shops in the Souq. The area Diera is also the OLD TOWN DUBAI. Below are the pictures of the ring & me helping my friend to buy some GOLD;)
FREE PLACE No 02: The Dubai Fountain: In Dubai Mall:
The Dubai Fountain is one of the magnificent attractions you would see in Dubai for absolutely free. To see the Fountain you have to enter the mall & follow the signs for The Fountain. The Fountain show starts from 06:00pm (if the timings have not changed) & The show last for approximately 4 mins, & it runs every 30 mins. One tip: TO GET THE BEST PICTURES & VIDEOS GO UP TO THE APPLE STORE ON THE 1st FLOOR. THE APPLE STORE AS AN AMAZING VIEWING DECK. On the background is the twinkling BURJ KHALIFA. The fountain & the Burj Khalifa will defiantly add to your travel picture collection. The Burj Khalifa also has a light show running around the same time. While you are inside the mall make sure you stop at the AQUARIUM which is also inside the mall. To enter the AQUARIUM obviously, there is a fee. But The aquarium is very huge so you can actually see most of it from the outside… SHHH!!! Just gave out another freebie. Below is the light Show of Burj Khalifa, The light show is different every day. That’s the fountain show & everybody that’s my hubby. Purnendu says hi to all!! That’s my beautiful family. There are Few pictures of the skyline & the spot where the fountain show takes place. This picture is clicked FROM AT THE TOP BURJ KHALIFA.
FREE PLACES No 03: VR PARK.
This is also, in the Dubai Mall. The entry is free but you pay for the games. It is a state of art experience. Everything in here is in high-definition. It feels like being in star wars movie, Good Place for Kids. Don’t have a picture of the VR park, but this the entrance of the Dubai mall from the metro side. VR park is close to Kidzania.
FREE PLACE No 04: La Mer.
La Mer is beachside dining. There are plenty of leisure activities for kids. You will also find shopping & entertainment here. Also, it is a great place for just an evening stroll. This Place is fairly new in Dubai.
FREE PLACE No 05: Madinat Jumeirah:
If You wanna see the High-End Restaurants, Bars & Pubs, then this is the place to be. Madinat Jumeirah is very popular among the tourist. There is a souq inside Madinat Jumeirah. This place is great for an evening stroll where you will have a clear view of BURJ AL ARAB HOTEL. If you wanna stop by for some drinks there is an amazing Polynesian Bar Trader Vics, there’s a fine dining Indian Restaurant, Thai restaurant & many more. During Christmas, they host the most beautiful Christmas Market.
FREE PLACE No 06: KITE BEACH.
I would say KITE BEACH is an active beach. There is a jogging track, there are food trucks, water sports activities, Arabic restaurants & sheesha cafes. Kite Beach will also give a very good view of the BURJ AL ARAB HOTEL. Below is a view of Burj Al Arab from Kite Beach.
FREE PLACE No 07: BOX PARK.
BOX PARK is also 1 of the high-end shopping area. The Shops are in a shipping container style. Good restaurant around. Good Place to walk around & soak in Dubai’s Lifestyle.

Hatta Dam, I would say the hidden treasure of Dubai. Read more of it in my next blog HIDDEN TREASURES OF DUBAI. But in shot Hatta Reservoir is a gorgeous blue water body near the Hajar mountains.
FREE PLACE No. 09. JBR THE WALK (ALSO CALLED THE BEACH)
JBR the walk is a beachside dining & shopping area just like LA MER. JBR walk is near Dubai Marina. You will have a good view of the marina & the Sky-Lines of Dubai. JBR is also referred to as the NEW DUBAI. You will see the Ain Dubai wheel, similar to the London Eye & Singapore Flyer, only this is the largest in the world. (still under making). During the Day There are beach beds & water activities. There is a small water park for kids at the walk, which is chargeable. Overall This place is ultimate for some restaurants & bars, beach activities, sunbathing, walks & sight-seeing. Below is the picture of the skyline in the backdrop from JBR.
FREE PLACE No: 10: AL QUDRA LAKES.
Al Qudra lakes, This place is also completely free & is open 24/7. It is a cluster of man-made lakes. You will spot some geese, swans, rabbits, oryx, wild foxes. A place only a local would go.

FREE PLACE No 11: DUBAI WATER CANAL:
Dubai water Canal is a man-made extension to the historic Dubai Creek, running out to the Arabian Gulf. There are water taxis & ferry trips from here. Absolutely free to walk around the promenade. Good opportunity to get some pictures of the canal & the skyline.
FREE PLACE No 12: RAS AL KHOR WILDLIFE SANCTUARY.
Just meters from the bustling city of Dubai you will spot these PINK FLAMINGOS stealing the show. I would rank this under a natural wonder. As these flamingos migrate during winters. Looks like Dubai is a Huge HUB for the flamingos too.
