From a distance, being hooked to the parachute and towed by a boat in the open sea may seem too nerve-wracking. But the fact is, once you are up there in the cool sea breeze, swaying gently to the tune of the wind, and relishing the sensational aerial views of Earth, nothing can bring you down (pun intended).

Dubai, with its sky-high, modern buildings, beautiful coastline, and most notably, the Palm, is arguably one of the best destinations around the world for parasailing. And, like any other tourist activity, the city offers plenty of options to visitors to witness its beauty from an altogether different perspective.
