Dubai is just not a sandy and buzzing cosmopolitan city with skyscrapers of various sorts. It is also a place where you can enjoy a romantic getaway with your special someone this Valentine’s Day without the hefty price tag.

Here are just few of the places you can go to while the weather is still inviting and spend a romantic time with your partner to commemorate a special occasion or celebrate Valentine’s Day. Enjoy!

Jebel Hafeet

Jebel Hafeet is the 2nd highest peak in UAE. On the summit, you can see the stunning view of Al Ain and the Oman in the border. Plenty of people either drive, cycle, or even run to reach Jebel Hafeet. If you plan to spend some quiet moments, there are designated camping grounds for people who wish to spend the night and graze upon the stars. Since I am into saving money while enjoying quality time with your love one, you can decide to check in the nearby Mercure Grand Jebel Hafeet Hotel if you have extra cash to splurge around.

Saruq Al Hadid Museum

This museum is located in the Shindagha District. For just a measly DHS20 entrance fee, you can enjoy some quiet moments with your special someone while viewing artifacts, and knowing more about the region’s history and culture while admiring arts.

Dubai Water Canal Boardwalk

Have a stroll along the Dubai Water Canal Boardwalk at night and enjoy the glam atmosphere  around with beautiful illuminated walkways and bridge overlooking the Dubai Water Canal. Don’t forget to wait for the mechanical waterfall right on the side of the bridge.

Miracle Garden

The entrance fee to this place for adults is Dhs 45 and that is very affordable. Take your special someone here and enjoy the flowers abloom around the park,

Dubai Mall Fountains

This is still a free activity to enjoy. Watch the fountains dance along lively, and sometimes romantic tunes. Wait for the evening shows to enjoy the sights and sounds.

Dhow Cruise dinner at the Dubai Creek

Snag a great deal for as low as DHS55 per person for a buffet dinner aboard the traditional dhow along with other entertainment for guests. Plenty of travel agencies and tour providers are offering deals for an evening of fun and entertainment in one of the dhow cruises plying along the creek. Enjoy the cruise along Dubai Creek while savoring delectable meals prepared for the guests.
