Dubai Mall

The Dubai Mall is bigger than 50 football pitches and is a full attraction its self. I normally don’t recommend shopping malls in my travel guides as shopping mall are normally the first place tourist like to head towards. Dubai Mall is more than your average shopping mall it hosts 1,200 shops ranging from designer shops to souk village style clothing. Aside from this all there is an aquarium, Ice-skating ring, and Cinema. Grab yourself lunch at the fountain side restaurant or next to the magical waterfall.

Dubai Fountain show

The Dubai Fountain show runs every 30 minutes and is the most dazzling display you will experience. Once the show comes to an end why not cross the bridge and enter Souk Al Bahar, an Arabian style resort housing shops, bars, and Restaurants. You won’t be able to have a pint of beer or a glass of wine at the restaurants inside the Mall but at the eateries, in Souk Al Bahar you’ll be able to grab yourself an alcoholic beverage. Some of the restaurants do have their own private balconies and can be enjoyed during Dubai’s breathtaking temperatures if visited during the summer. The restaurants range from Asian cuisine to Meat feast depending on your appetite.

Old Dubai

Delve in Dubai’s past by visiting Bastakiya, which is also known as Al Fahidi the historical neighbourhood. you can join a walking tour or simply stroll the charming street. if you pay 1 dirham you can enjoy a ride across the creek on a traditional abra. on the other side of the creek, you can explore the aromatic atmosphere of the spice, tea and gold souk.

The creek is the place to visit even if it’s just to browse and not buy anything. it is one of the few areas in Dubai that has retained its character as many other areas have been overtaken by the many skyscrapers being built. Old Dubai shows you that there is real culture to be found in Dubai as the sun sets you can enjoy a  dinner cruise on one of the many wooden boats docked at the creek.

Your visit to Dubai would not be complete without a visit to the desert. There are a number of tour companies that can guide you on your visit to the sand dunes, or you can explore unaided by highering a vehicle. many of the tour companies offer various desert adventures such as 4 x 4 dune- bashing experiences to dinner after dark at the Boudin camp, along with belly dancing shows and a chance to see how desert people used to hunt for food.
