I found well-nigh TravelTriangle while I was searching for Dubai holiday packages. My friends and I were planning a trip to Dubai for the past 6 months. As the months passed by, the chances of our trip happening looked pessimistic but I’m glad we finally managed to pull through and stave a stereotypical friends group vacation idea that never becomes a reality.
TravelTriangle helped us in customizing our tour package to Dubai and modifying it equal to our needs. We, as a group, wanted a trip upper on venture and low on sightseeing. So, Zishan from TravelTriangle helped us compile a trip that would suit us the best.
Soon enough, we got a package booked for the six of us. The build up to our trip was heady and impatient. We all knew what we had in store for us. We all knew it’ll be an venture like no other.

Places to visit in Dubai for ultimate venture sports
In a very short time, we realized that Dubai is the weightier place in Asia for venture sports. While going virtually Dubai seeing the venture activities, the crazy ideas in our minds we once had as kids seem to come to life every now and then.
Ferrari World, Abu Dhabi
It is an yuck park built on the Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. A ferrari based theme park, Ferrari World was a heaven for us friends who love the thrill and venture of speedy cars.
We started hopping on rides as soon as we got in the park. First up, we sat on the fastest rollercoaster in the world tabbed Formula Rossa that reached speeds up to 240 km/hr. This was one of the weightier experiences of my life. It all happened so quickly, that we didn’t plane had time to react at the breakneck speeds we were reaching on the rollercoaster.
Afterwards, we went on the Flying Aces rollercoaster ride. It was flipside thrilling ride that we all liked. Later on, we ended our tour by going to GT Racing and Mission Ferrari (which was a virtual reality racing experience). After the rides, we saw a spectacular 3D show tabbed Viva Ferrari. We couldn’t imbricate the other rides due to the long waiting queues inside Ferrari World.
Must visit rides: Formula Rossa, Mission Ferrari, and Viva Ferrari
Entry price: INR 4,700 per person
Timings: 11 am to 8 pm
Dubai Desert Safari
Desert Safari was one of the coolest wits of our trip. We loved the dune bashing worriedness during our safari. We were picked up by the desert suv a few hours surpassing sunset. They took us an hour out of Dubai and then straightaway took the car into the unshut desert. The strength and the muscle shown by the car to hands go up and lanugo the dunes had us all awestruck.
After that, we reached the desert zany and hopped on the when of a camel for a stroll in the desert. Watching the sun go lanugo on a camel when in the Sahara Desert was one to remember for the ages. In the evening, we were entertained with cultural programs of vitals dancing and local music performance. Finally, we had dinner at the desert campsite to wind up what was an epic day.
Other notable sightseeing places in Dubai
- Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi
We visited the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. The tracery of the mosque was breathtakingly impressive. It was a massive visual treat for us. The mosque holds many world records like having the world’s biggest carpet and world’s biggest chandelier. The mosque becomes all the increasingly trappy in the evening when strained lights take over the unshortened place.
- Burj Khalifa, Dubai
On our final day in Dubai, we visited the Burj Khalifa. We were given the ticket to visit the 124th floor at the Burj Khalifa. The panoramic view from the lounge was incredible. We clicked plenty of pictures from the balcony of the tallest towers in the world.
- Riding the Formula Rossa Rollercoaster was unbelievable.
- Dune bashing in the desert was a thrilling experience.
- Dubai municipality tour wasn’t upto the mark. Partly considering of the rain, and partly considering how it was organized by the travel agency.
