  3. 3. Ismaeel Al Nuaimi H00234810 CER Leisure and sports in Dubai Introduction To break the routine of our daily life and to take a break from all stress that we go through at work, we have to entertainourselves or we have to practice some sports. Leisure is defined as the time that we spend enjoying ourselves away from work, studies and the daily tasks that would exhaust and tire us. For many people, including me, leisure is all about sleeping and relaxing and for others it is about enjoying a long walk on the beach or reading a book in a quiet area. Nowadays, leisure is about spending time with family and friends or as it is called, the social leisure. In the social leisure, people will be enjoying different activities such as shopping, travelling or just by going to nice movies at the cinemas and finally sports. Sport is a part of leisure, also, it is very nice and a great social activity, and it is defined as the different activities that involve competing among the different individuals to win a game. In this project, I will be taking you on a tour in leisure and sports activities in the beautiful city of Dubai, and we will discover the reason behind calling it the pearl of the world and why it became one of the best leisure places in the Gulf region and the entire world. We will see the various leisure destinations in Dubai, and we will analyse all the various activities that people engage themselves in there. After that, we will be looking at the different sports that people do enjoy in the city of Dubai, and we will see how this area made a great impact on the people and their leisure activities in that amazing city. The reason why I selected this topic and the city is because I always look forward to leisure and sports and the best place to have both is nowhere else than Dubai Ismaeel Al Nuaimi H00234810 CER 2
  4. 4. Ismaeel Al Nuaimi H00234810 CER Leisure in Dubai Next to Abu-Dhabi, to the north is the city of Dubai where leading innovation is clearly shown in every possible life aspect. Leisure is what the government of Dubai worked hard to achieve because to them a human who enjoys his life from time to time will produce better in his work and help in developing himself and the place where he lives in. In Dubai, we can start our journey in the Mall of the Emirates where we can enjoy many leisure activities such as shopping, dining or simply walking around in a cool weather in the hot summer. From the Mall of the Emirates and down the Emirates road, we reach the amazing and the huge, Dubai Mall. Dubai Mall is the largest mall in the world with a total area of 5,400,000 square feet and with over 1,200 shops. Dubai Mall includes the finest shopping brands from all over the world, which make it the best place for shopping not only in the UAE but in the entire Gulf region. In Dubai Mall, it is all about the word big and you will understand that once you see the largest fish aquarium in the world that includes fishes from all seven seas.

  5. 5. Ismaeel Al Nuaimi H00234810 CER Dubai Mall is located at the base of the world tallest building since 2010, Burj Khalifa. Burj Khalifa is a true art of architecture that is all about leisure. The Burj, tower in Arabic, is a mixed-use building that includes the Dubai Fountain, the first musical fountain in the Middle East, observation deck, Burj Khalifa Park and Floor plans. From BurjKhalifa, and down the road to the area of Jumairah, we reach the Palm Island, the world biggest artificial island with a number of resorts that are equal to some other countries. The island was constructed with a design similar to a real palm tree to show the importance of the Emirati culture to the world. Once you are in the Palm Island, you must come across the Atlantis Hotel, one of the most famous hotels and leisure resorts in the world. Ismaeel Al Nuaimi H00234810 CER 4
  6. 6. Ismaeel Al Nuaimi H00234810 CER Sports in Dubai In Dubai, there are many places to watch and to enjoy your favorite sports any time of the year and in any season. For many people around the world, skiing is a sport that you can practice in Europe or few parts of the world during winter, but in Dubai, you can enjoy skiing around the year indoors. In the Emirates Mall, you can enjoy and practice indoor skiing on real snow on a slope that is well designed and constructed to accommodate thousands of visitors every year to practice their favorite sport, skiing. Another sport that people do practice in Dubai is cricket. DSC Cricket Stadium in Dubai (also known as the Dubai Sports City Cricket Stadium) is a new multipurpose stadium in Dubai that is open for everyone to learn and practice cricket.

  7. 7. Ismaeel Al Nuaimi H00234810 CER Conclusion We will always be busy and the burdens of life will always be with us, and that is why we need to have a break or a holiday from time to time. Leisure is defined as the time that we spend enjoying ourselves away from work, studies and the daily tasks that would exhaust and tire us. Sports as a part of leisure, is a very nice and a great way of enjoyment and it is defined as the different activities that involve competing among the different individuals to win the game. In Dubai, you can enjoy both leisure and sports all year and all the time, and you can enjoy your time with many facilities with friends and family. These places together made Dubai in the past year alone one of the best leisure and sport destination in the entire world. Ismaeel Al Nuaimi H00234810 CER 6
