Dubai - Help deciding where to stay

Jump to last reply

I'm a 24 year old female making a 3 1/2 day stopover in Dubai and I need help deciding where to stay. I'll be traveling solo in mid-July and yes, I am aware that July is the hottest month. I've done some research and can't decide if I should stay near the Mall of the Emirates area (I can escape to the air-conditioned mall when needed, I'd like to board at Ski Dubai, the beach is close? & the hop-on/hop-off bus has a stop there) or go more towards the Bur Dubai area because it seems like there would be more to do there.

I also have a couple more questions - would a day or half-day trip be ok to Abu Dhabi? If I can I'd like to visit the Sheikh Zayed and the Ferrari park to ride the roller coaster - I can't decide if I should change my flight to extend my stay a day or two. Besides the sightseeing w/ the hop-on/hop-off bus, I'd also like to do a desert safari trip for one of the nights.. they still run over the summer right?

Thanks, any help would be nice =)
