  • Desert Safari, Dubai

    2. Desert Safari

    4 out of 5 stars

    While most people told me to choose any company since they are all the same, I now know better. I chose Arabian Adventures and regretted. It was chaotic and we did not get much while there were many...

  • Jumeirah Beach Park, Dubai

    3. Jumeirah Beach Park

    This will be my tip of the Jumeirah Beach part in the Dubai Marina Area, Fronting the Jumeirah Beach Residences. The Jumeirah beach is the longest beach in Dubai and it stretches from Bur Dubai Area...

  • Atlantis - Aquaventure Waterpark, Dubai

    4. Atlantis - Aquaventure Waterpark

    Dubai can be as cheap or expensive as you want to make it. You could stay in the Atlantis Hotel, or pay to use its Aquadventure Waterpark which certainly does look lovely, or visit the sea-lions, or...

  • Al Fahidi Fort - Dubai Museum, Dubai

    5. Al Fahidi Fort - Dubai Museum

    The museum's collection is poor. To give life and expression to the place some displays where focused in people's life, instead of people's belongings or art creation. In a dimmed light, some of...

  • Dubai Creek, Dubai

    6. Dubai Creek

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    While Dubai has creeped southwards along the coast, the old centre was always here, divided in two by the creek - Bur to the south and Deira to the north. While the centre of gravity has shifted, and...

  • Gold Souq, Dubai

    7. Gold Souq

    4 out of 5 stars

    One of the recommended goods to buy in Dubai is… gold. Well, the gold souk is astonishing: hundreds of shops side by side, with all kind of gold and golden artefacts may turn into any woman’s dream....

  • Burj Al Arab, Dubai

    8. Burj Al Arab

    This "seven star" hotel epitomises everything about modern Dubai. Like a spinnaker blown taut on gusts of optimism, it tacks proud and tall in from the gulf. A hotel that's also a tourist attraction...

  • Jumeirah Mosque, Dubai

    9. Jumeirah Mosque

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    We were able to make a visit to this beautiful mosque, the Jumerirah mosque. This mosque has been built in the traditional Fatimid style. During our visit we were shown some of the Islamic practices...

  • Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai

    10. Madinat Jumeirah

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    This is a very quaintly designed mall. The shops are upmarket but the architecture and the whole ambience is very charming and it is fascinating to walk around. This is also a clever way to view the...

  • Skiing & Snowboarding, Dubai

    11. Skiing & Snowboarding

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Strange that VT has a "Skiing and Snowboarding" section for Dubai. It's not like there's a whole lot of options in the middle of the Arabian desert. In fact there is only one option, Ski Dubai, but it...

  • Atlantis - Lost Chambers Aquarium, Dubai

    12. Atlantis - Lost Chambers Aquarium

  • Shopping, Dubai

    13. Shopping

    Do you believe that, sometimes, I was the one heading to the malls? Fernanda was surprised, but the fifty something Celsius degrees outside, pushed me into the air-conditioned. Which one is the...

  • Spice Souq, Dubai

    14. Spice Souq

    Heading to the gold souk, we didn't pay much attention to the spices souk in the way. It is small, but it shows all the usual colours and smells, looking wider and calmer than the ones in north...

  • Souqs, Dubai

    15. Souqs

    The poorest souk in Dubai is the cloths area - it's easy to understand, that, with so many malls and brands around, things are not favorable to traditional commerce in this area. Maybe for locals,...

  • Boat Trips, Dubai

    16. Boat Trips

    If you cannot afford to go for a Dhow cruise, just take a ride in a local boat bus called an Abra from the Creek area to the other side. It is just one or two dirhams per person and is a lovely ride...

  • Bastakia Quarter, Dubai

    17. Bastakia Quarter

    4 out of 5 stars

    In the rush to develop the ultra modern city of Dubai, the developers almost forgot that there was once a thriving trading city down by the creek. There wasn't much left of this old quarter when the...

  • Wild Wadi Waterpark, Dubai

    18. Wild Wadi Waterpark

    I only saw from outside this water park situated between the Burj-al-Arab and the Jumeirah Beach hotels. Of course that, being in Dubai it must be the most... something, but the almost 50º C of...

  • Big Bus Tour, Dubai

    19. Big Bus Tour

    4 out of 5 stars

    I found this sightseeing tour with the Big Bus company excellent. As Dubai is pretty spread out, this tour was really complete and showed us a big part of the city. There were two lines, the red and...

  • Heritage Village, Dubai

    20. Heritage Village

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Heritage Village is apparently a celebration of the old Emirati way of life and has many recreations of an old Bedouin Village, Mosque, guest rooms etc... Sadly, advertised to be open from 8am, there...

  • Marina, Dubai

    21. Marina

    When are the local police going to stop the local maniacs driving at crazy speeds into the early hours of the morning?? The engines are revved to the max and I find it impossible to sleep until these...
