    Good hotel in average price range. Rooms and washrrom are nice and clean. Plus there is a nice pool, gym and steam bath. There are couple of restaurants but food taste is below quality.

    BurJuman is in Bur Dubai near Sheraton Four Points. It is similar to other malls in Dubai. Food court is excellent.

    A restaurant in Dera Dubai. Probably the Food here is the best Arabic food in Dubai

    Desert Safari is a must in Dubai. Almost all hotels have tourism desk from where the trip can be arranged. Safari at Hata desert is the best. Don't go for it at Awer desert

  • 8. Day 2 Day, Shopping Center

    Day 2 Day is in Karama area in Bur Dubai. All items here are at cheap price (2 Dirhams). Quality of most of them is not good (chinese stuff). However if you keep your eyes open you might be able to get some good items (Hint: Go for toys and home decoration)
