Going to Dubai for 4 days pls suggest a plan??
I am planing to go Safari, Fountains, Ferrari world, Dubai mall, what else??
The old city with souks and WildWadiPark :)
Take a ride on an abra and a dhow. Visit old Dubai & the Dubai Museum, the souks, a drink or meal at Burj Al Arab, go to the top of Burj Khalifa....
The creek area is very interesting - you can see old buildings and outdoor restaurants at the Shingdga Waterfront area, visit the old souq, Dubai Museum, Bastika, and view the Grand Mosque, Iranian Mosque on the Bur Dubai side of the creek. Take an abra ride across the creek visit the gold souq, perfume souq, spice souq, fish souq, vegetable/fruit souq on Deiira side of creek.
Themed shopping malls are interesting in Dubai - Ibn Battuta Mall looks like six different areas of the world, Wafi Mall Ancient Egyptian theme, evening sound and light show; Mercato Mall - Venetian theme, Souq Madinat Jumeriah looks like traditional Arab Village.
Dubai Mall - acquarium, fountain show, next to tallest building in world, next to old style souq, ice-skatig rink.
Mall of the Emirates - indoor ski slope.
Water parks - Wild Wadi, Atlantis.
View Burj al Arab Hotel.
Visit a beach.
Jumeirah Beach area. Burj al Arab 7* hotel and Wild Wadi plus the Marina area are all northern based. ALso near enough to the Mall of the Emirates and its indoor ski slope. There are numerous mosques down the strip near Jumeirah beach
Then I would head to the old creek area, a good bazaar, medina there plus the old fort. Cross the water in an old agra, or take a boat trip up Dubai Creek. Nearby to the creek area is the gold souk. Worth a visit.
Central would be the worlds tallest building, the Burj Khalifa and the new Dubai Mall.
Nearer the airport is the likes of the Wafi Mall Ancient Egyptian themed but also has a number of restaurants and a "souk".
A desert trip is OK if a little manufactured.
You'll find Dubai is a mix and uncertain if its a western of middle eastern city.
Its a great destination for the time period you have.
- Dubai Gold Souk and Spice market is a must experience.
- Dubai Heritage Village and an "abra" (arabic style open boat) trip across the creek.
- Skii Dubai at Mall of Emirates
- great beach parks
Chk out my Dubai pages for more details.
souq madinat jumeirah .. burj khalifa ... the beach next to burj al arab hotel its nice you can take pics with the hotel background ..atlantis hotel tour ...dubai marina the walk and jbr .. nice restaurants where the marina and next to the beach
4 Days indeed shrort trip to Dubai, I can only thing few things you can do,
1. Visit gold souk in Dubai, many gold shops and good area to see old Dubai.
2. You can visit Emirates Mall do bit skiing and also shopping, you can also visit, I think big mall in the world Dubai Mall.
3. You can take Dubai bus tour
4. you can also visit Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
I hope have lovely trip to Dubai.
Ferrari World is actually in Abu Dhabi, not Dubai, and that means a whole day trip. I'd give it a miss, there's plenty to see and do, as the others have said in Dubai, with only four days.
Dubai has lots more than what was mentioned but they have briefly mentioned all of the major attraction areas but it is better if you mention what you want in such a trip I can suggest you more places.
