Friends and acquaintances ask me what to do in Dubai. Here’s a quick summary, as soon as I have time I’ll break it down.
Night Fountain and Laser Show at Burj Khalifa – it will be crowded, but you can’t avoid it.
Dubai Frame – the “view” of Dubai, the cool thing is that they have a blackout floor, so when you walk across it, it looks like there is no floor 😀 My wife hated it 🙂
Butterfly Garden – it’s nice, but not a must.
Dubai Aquarium with tunnel – it’s in a mall (Dubai Mall) so shopping + something to see 😀
Dubai Gold Souk, Spice Souk – their marketplace…you can then arrange to visit the hidden rooms with handbags/shoes at reasonable prices 😀 A little peek into the life of the locals, but there will be plenty of tourists there.
La Mer – beach + cool promenade, best in the evening
City Walk – restaurants, shops
Kite Beach – we went there most of the time, nice sandy beach and food place etc.
Dubai Marina – makes sense in the evening, but you’ll see if you have time.
Food + Drink: % ARABICA – chain of cafes, SALT Kite Beach (salt is a burger chain, but Kite Beach is fine), Operation Falafel – fastfood, but terribly good (Zataar 😀 wraps etc..)
For a day trip, I see it the same way for the main things – Burj, Dubai Mall, Aquarium, Dubai Souk 🙂
