When you tell people you’re planning to jump out of a plane at the weekend, they tend to exhibit one of two reactions. You’ll either find yourself pressed on whether you’ve been feeling unhappy lately, or slapped on the back with a shout of ‘Awesome!’ ringing in your ears. Whatever the response, most people acknowledge this is one of the most thrilling activities out there – the ultimate bucket-list sport. There’s only one place to get a piece of the action in this city, and that’s at Skydive Dubai, located around the corner from the Habtoor Grand hotel. Tandem dives are Dhs1,700 per person, including DVD and digital still pictures. Skydive Dubai, behind Habtoor Grand, www.skydivedubai.ae (050 153 3222).
