It’s that time when many of us have a few of days off and are looking for brilliant things to see and do in Dubai.

And if you have a few family members who are in town for the festive season, then you’ll want to know about this new app.

Switch DXB is an app that makes it easier for you to discover everything Dubai has to offer when it comes to leisure, fitness, and wellbeing.

The app is basically a one-stop shop – you can book and pay for all activities with the touch of a button, and keep track of your schedule thanks to the handy calendar.


Unlike many fitness apps that only offer classes, Switch DXB has a huge range of activities that you can try as a pay as you go service. There’s everything from zipline rides to jetski sessions to escape rooms to massages (because you’ll need to treat yourself after all of that action).

There’s no subscription, and the app is free to download and available on both the App Store and Google Play. Click here to download the app now.
