3 nights and 2 days in Dubai - first timers - HELP!!!!!!

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone! I'm travelling to Dubai with my boyfriend, we are going to stay 3 nights in Dubai on our way to Australia (we arrive on november first at 21:00 pm and leave on the 4th at 10:00am). So we don't have much time... We are planning to stay at Arabian Courtyard. I wonder were can we go to grab a late bite on the evening we arrive - I guess we'll be ready to leave the hotel around midnight... Are Buddha bar or Barzar at madinat good choiches? Do you have anywhere else that could be nice so late at night?


We are planning to go on the first day visiting the museum, the bastakia, the gold and spice souk, heritage village, taking an abra ride. Afterwards, go back to the hotel to get changed and have a drink on skyview bar at Burj al Arab (soon enough to watch the sunset) and after go to the Dubai Mall to see the fountain (maybe get a table on TGI - I know it will look not so nice after Skyview bar...


On day 2 we'd like to see (and only see) Jumeira Beach (as we are going to Australia, is just to get to know how it looks like), Ibn Battuta Mall, MOE, Madinat, then go for a drink on observatory bar and after have a real dinner at Pai Thai on Madinat Jumeirah. Is this feasible? I mention going twice to Madinat as I believe it's worth be seeing also at daytime - I have seen great pics!


I also wonder about bastakiah nights... has anyone gone there? How is thw food like? Is it worth? Because to go there I would need to drop someplace from my itinerary, it is really hard to decide!


One more question: From were can I take the best pictures from Burj al Arab? From inside when I go for drinks or should I stop someplace at Jumeirah beach?


Thank you very much!!!!!!
