Getting around and what to do

We're staying in Dubai for a week, in the Taj Palace. We've pretty much decided what to do, but how easy is is it to get around in Dubai? Since we're staying across the Creek, how long would it take to get to, say, The Burj Khalifa or Mall of the Emirates or Jumeirah beach?

The things that we're probably going to be doing/seeing are going to Aquaventure/Wild Wadi, up the Burj Khalifa, to some of the malls, Ski Dubai, seeing the fountains, and quad biking. Does it seem ok?

The nearest beach park to you is Al Mamzar Beach Park

dubaicity.com/what_to_do_in_dubai/park_dubai…

You can get there by taxi.

Here's a tourist map of Dubai

You can get to Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa and Mall of the Emirates by metro or cab.

To get to Aquaventure take the metro to Nakheel Tower station and then go on by taxi.

To get to Wild Wadi take the metro to Mall of the Emirates and then go on by taxi

Or just go all the way by taxi, which will cost more but be quicker.

Your itinerary sounds fine and you may want to take a look at the guide to the metro system in the Top Questions to the right of the posts page.

Thanks a bunch, Latimer! Just 1 more thing-do we need to organise quad biking in advance? Or can we do it when we get there? Or should it be done through a tour organiser?

You would need to organize quad biking with a tour operator as you need togo out of town. The hotel will be able to assist you with this.
