Hi Everyone,

Myself and my spouse (with another couple) are planning to holiday trip in Dubai in 2nd week of November. I want to know, where we should stay, do shopping (not expensive) and places we should cover in 5 days, 4 nights.

I tried searching in trip advisor, but i didn't got exact location where i should stay and I can commute easily to cover following places:

1. Bruj Khalifa

2. Aquarium

3. Ferrari World (travel to Abu Dhabi and back on same day)

4. Dessert Safari

5. Shopping (Please suggest)

6. Any other location suggested on this forum.

Please help

-Deepak

What is your budget as that will dictate where you can stay ?

You may want to look at Bur Dubai as that is conveniently located.

Hi deepak,

you have enough time to see dubai & abudhabi.

1) dubai burj khalifa, dubai mall and under water zoo can be covered in halfday .

do the online booking for burj khalifa during the sunset time. this slots are high demand, look for the combo offer for burj khalifa + under water zoo.

2) pick up for the desert safari will start fom 3 :00 pm and the drop off will be around 9:30. You need one complete after noon for safari.

3)ferrari world will require 3 to 5 hours, if there is no queue.If you have time try to visit the sheikh zayed grand mosque in Abudhabi.

4) Gold souq, Al ras, down town dubai, city walk, JBR , Marina mall are the top attractions now.

5)Dubai frame, lost chambers in atlantis are also my suggetion

Hi Latimer, my visit budget is 60K to 70K for 2 people. This budget is for stay, attractions and internal travel. I assume veg food will not be costly.

Google Maps is your friend - rather than Trip Advisor.

Load up the map, 'save' the places you want to visit, and then you can check directions/transport methods etc. All the Metro stops, main hotels, sights and attractions are all featured on Google Maps so it's an ideal way to work out how and where you get around best.

It's a little tough to advise you 'where' but as you mention Aquarium, Burj etc, Downtown or northwards would suit, especially SZR, Bur Dubai, Karama, Creek or Deira.

You would probably prefer budget areas, so perhaps exclude Downtown, so top of SZR northwards should be decent enough.

However, you then mention
