We are a couple with a child aged 4 and will be in Dubai between 8th and 12th November’12. After taking suggestions from the forum, I have chalked out a 5 day plan. The idea is to have a relaxed get away and cover the major attractions. Any suggestions / advice for any changes required in the itinerary are welcome!
We land around 6:30am (hopefully there won’t be a long queue to keep us at the airport for long). Take a cab and reach our hotel at Downtown Dubai. The plan is to relax at the hotel till about 3 pm and then spend the evening at the Mall of Emirates (Sky Dubai and the Penguin Encounter are major attractions)
First half is for leisure.
Second Half: Desert Safari (We plan to book this on the 8th once we have landed)
Morning: Creek Park – Dolphinarium and other attractions. (Should we book the dolphin show online or is it easy to get tickets by reaching a few minutes early?)
Second half: Move around Jumeirah Walk followed with dinner.
Morning City Tour.
Second Half: Dubai Mall. (At The Top (already booked online) / Underwater Zoo & Aquarium / Fountains / Dinner)
12th November – Half day at Wild Wadi or Aquaventure.
Second Half – Check out late evening and off to the Airport.
We are not keen on a day trip to Abu Dhabi as it might be tiring. Also don’t fancy being inside the Burj Al Arab….will be happy to get some good clicks from a distance.
