Dubai is more fascinating and charming in the evening. When the electrically supplied lighting pierces through the chest of darkness and turns the city bright and shinning that is when entertainment comes alive. If you are in Dubai, taking an evening tour in Dubai is a must. Among the various things to do here in the evening, these are the selected few to entertain you.

Light and sound show at Wafi Mall
Wafi Mall is not just a shopping mall, but also an architectural wonder. It is constructed using various architectural styles among which Egyptian and Turkish are more prominent. The entire structure is festooned with intricate designs, carvings, and sculptures. Its impressive beauty is further heightened by its delicate and elegant stained glass. The mall has over 350 shops and 30 restaurants that make shopping and dining convenient. But what draws the visitors towards it is the spectacular light and sound shows. The entertaining show has an ancient Pharaoh theme. In the central courtyard of the mall, there are Egyptian-themed buildings and pyramids where all the action takes place. When the light and sound are on, interesting displays are formed in the structures that take back to the time of ancient kings and queens of Egypt.

Jumeirah Lake Towers
The Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT) is a lively waterfront community with high-rise towers in clusters comprising of residential and commercial towers. There are hotels, retail outlets, offices, and leisure outlets. The JLT also has a sprawling community park ideal for women and children for strolling and playing. Taking an evening stroll and finding oneself amidst the several clusters of gigantic towers makes one feel as if they are surrounded by tall fences. There are even bars and clubs in JTL to quench your thirst and fill your stomach. A visit to the JLT after the sunset is a must to add in your list of sightseeing in Dubai.

Dubai desert can be enjoyed from morning till night. You can go for dune bashing, hot-air balloon, and sand boarding during the day. But in the evening, the desert wakes up to a totally different world. It is the time for the wild creatures to come out and search for their prey. Even the temperature in the desert dips quite low in the night. To enjoy all these experiences, you have to stay for an overnight in a stylish and comfortable Bedouin tent. You will experience the Arabian culture closely. Though the camping will be in a traditional style, you will never miss the comfort of your hotel room. The camping experience includes a barbecue, camel ride, belly dancing, and a variety of Arabic and international cuisines. After a comfortable stay and sound sleep inside the temp, you will wake up to a morning where the rising sun will spray its color on the dunes and make it red.

Dubai Clubs & Bars
If someone wants to see how culture and modernity gel together in a harmonious manner, he or she has to visit Dubai. The Emiratis are very particular about following their religious duties, and stay rooted to their culture. Despite this, they offer leverage to visitors to enjoy nightlife in Dubai, except with a few restrictions during the period of Ramzaan. The city has some trendy and stylish bars and clubs with chic interiors, jazzy dance floors, western music, exotic drinks, and mouth-watering dishes. You must visit the Jumeirah Beach Hotel Bar, or the Apartment Lounge & Club. However, you should not misuse the leverage provided by the Dubai government and disrespect their culture. Though not all clubs and bars are strict, some clubs do have a dress code. Before dropping in any club or bar, know about the dress code.

The Dubai Fountain
You might have not seen an evening like you will do after visiting the Dubai Fountain. Though the Fountain is not operating throughout the night, but it definitely covers the better part of your evening. It starts from six in the evening and closes at 10 on weekdays. During weekends, it is operating till 11 pm. It is not only the largest fountain in the world, but also the most spectacular one. The best thing about the fountain is its light and music show that lasts for five minutes and is on after every ten minutes.

The Dubai Marina is the heart of the city. It is where opulence and luxury co-exist in their prime. Being revered as the world’s finest man-made marina, it is an adorable concrete jungle with towering buildings and structures. It is the posh locality in Dubai with beautiful landscapes, public walkways, jogging tracks, restaurants, and retail outlets. While you can relish the architectural beauty of Dubai Marina during the daytime, it is best experienced in the evening. Besides enjoying a leisurely stroll on the walkway, you can also take a dhow cruise in Dubai Marina. Joining for a dhow cruise with several visitors and enjoying the architectural marvel relaxing on the comfortable lower deck of the dhow is quite a memorable experience.
Dubai is not a city that can be covered in a day or an evening. You have to stay here for a few days to explore everything that is impressive and touching. Whether it is the light and sound show at Wafi Mall, a stroll at JLT, a drink and dance in a nightclub, or the desert safari, you will never experience evening again like in Dubai.
