2 nights in Dubai

Hi,

I will be arriving in Dubai for the first time at 8am next Thursday, leaving Saturday morning.
Total time: 2 days.

Would greatly appreciate recommendations of where to stay in Dubai, as well as activities for day 1: Should I stay on the beach/ (I love to swim) etc?

On day 2 I would like to take a day trip to Abu Dhabi (Friday)
Could you please recommend a tour, etc?

Thank you in advance!!!!

Since you love to swim, that would make staying at one of the beach resorts a good idea. However, to see more of Dubai than the wealthy high-rise display, you may wish to spend part of that Day 1 (maybe late afternoon/evening after your swim) in the Dubai Creek area, particularly at one of the older souks and enjoy a meal that gives you a view of the boat traffic on the creek itself. Any tour you take to Abu Dhabi should definitely include the Grand Mosque - just breathtaking! and since you have limited time, the view from the Etihad Tower in Abu Dhabi is actually more beautiful than that from the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, though obviously not as high!
