Dubai for Tourists

Here’s my “Dubai in 5 days”, created for friends who are coming here to visit us, which you may use as a point of reference as well. I haven’t bothered to update the prices below, so please check the websites.

  1. Desert Safari – 150AED per person  (I’ll need to book for you)
  2. Waterpark – Aquaventure & The Lost Chambers – 155AED per person (260AED combo full price), then night brunch at Saffron – 105 AED per person (210 AED full price)
  3. Shopping at The Dubai Mall, check out The Aquarium, followed by drinks on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa at sunset – Atmosphere Bar (Tip : Book a table at the bar, and there is no minimum spend ). 
  4. Beach – Lazing by the beach at Jumeirah Beach Residence (free)
  5. Ladies Night – Free drinks (if you’re a girl) at one of the many Ladies Nights. Highly recommend Embassy if you’re here on a Tuesday/Wednesday, free salsa at Pachanga on Thursdays, Uptown Bar on Monday’s,  Bahri Bar at Mina A’ Salam on Tuesdays, endless choices!
  6. Hotel hopping/Fine Dining – Check out the many Jumeirah properties – Beachcombers  for night brunch – 95AED per person (185 AED full price), Trader Vic’s in Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Pierchic at Al Qasr…. etc
  7. R & R at one of the many spas. I haven’t been to the super ones (too ex :*( ) but I’ve heard amazing things about Talise Spa. Prepare to splurge!
  8. Dubai Brunch – I’ll find something less than 200 AED per person for all you can eat and drink. There’s always a deal, somewhere!
  9. Old Dubai – Gold Souk, Spice Souk!
