Duration: 4 days/3 night -
Day - 1
After checking into a hotel, the representative gets you on a start with your visual delights at the Creek. An easier way of crossing the Dubai Creek is by abra, essentially a small ferry and abra stations are located along the Creek on both the Bur Dubai and Deira sides, as the system of filling the boats is remarkably efficient. The arena gives a very picturesque view of the city which should not to be missed. The Creek is also the home of many boats offering more comfortable tours, as they are often designed to resemble dhows. In and around the Creek, tourists can see some of the original buildings that have served as customs houses and defence structures. They can book a ride on the Creek with a dinner cruise or even rent a private boat to go on an hour long ride up and down this beautiful area. The waterbus is another option for tourists who want to go by boat but not the abra!
Travellers may cover the following areas in old Dubai. Bastakiya District which is one of the last remaining pockets of this area, home to many reconstructed buildings in the traditional style, with an evocative atmosphere and plenty of delightful art galleries and cafes to explore. Dubai Museum is a must-see for those interested in the social history of the Emirate and the country. A visit to the Al-Fahidi fort showcases a few examples of the traditional reed houses and other artifacts but the more interesting part is the modern extension built underneath the fort, emphasizing Dubai's history using the latest technology and culminating in a reconstructed souq from the pearling days, complete with authentic sights and sounds. It is quite fascinating to see the speed at which the transition occurred from an underdeveloped pearling village to a modern metropolis. The Jumeirah Mosque is the largest in the city, and a wonderful example of Islamic architecture. Built in the medieval Fatimid tradition with the interior decorated with elaborate Arabic calligraphy. The Mosque is an especially great place to visit in the evening when it's dramatically illuminated by floodlights. The Shindig District is home to the open museums of the Heritage Village. Return back to the hotel to sleep after gulping this visual pleasure!
Day - 2
After breakfast, start with a visit to Modern Dubai. Burj Khalifa, until recently called Burj Dubai, is the world's tallest structure by a long shot than the previous contender in Taipei. The observation deck is the second-highest in the world after the Shanghai World Financial center. Already dominating the Dubai skyline, the newly opened tower houses nine hotels and a Las Vegas-inspired fountain system, the Dubai Fountain, which is indeed the world's largest dancing fountain-laden with a very enticing display of the dancing waters! The show starts every evening at the Burj Dubai Lake. Dubai Marina is a newer and the more popular areas of Modern Dubai, both with residents and tourists. It offers numerous features such as a phenomenal skyline, world class hotels, a fabulous beach, a mall, and two different walkways (The Walk and Marina Walk) with coffee shops, restaurants, and shops. “Marina Walk” is right on the "Marina water", with a spread of yachts, which can be rented for a cruise around the area.” The Walk” has a nice open market run from October till May, every Fridays and Saturdays at daylight. Palm Islands houses the three largest artificial islands in the world, located just off the coast of Dubai, a major urban development to add a significant amount of upscale beachfront property to the area. Each of the islands is shaped like a palm leaf, with a trunk connected to the mainland, fronds extending from the trunk, and a crescent (a breakwater encircling the trunk and fronds). Of the three planned, the Palm Jumeirah, near Dubai Marina, is the only one yet open, connected to the mainland by a freeway bridge and a monorail and sports marinas, luxury resorts, and upscale shopping areas. Wild Wadi Park is the perfect place for the entire family to spend a day as well as being a great way to beat the heat and enjoy the day away from the bustle of the city. Located close to the hotels and resorts of Jumeriah Beach, the park has water rides, slides, and a lagoon that's hidden away as the visitors enjoy waterfalls, out of the way swimming holes, and a tidal pool. Overnight stay at the hotel!
Day - 3
Take some time off in the morning before you start with the imperative Desert Safari or Dune Bashing. Head out to the desert in an SUV with the specialist Desert Drivers. The drivers will take you for a roller-coaster ride over sand dunes, show you the sunset from a strategic vantage point and then take you to a lavish dinner with music and a belly dancer to keep you spellbound and beatific, thereby completing the ambience and festive atmosphere! Get back to the hotel and rest your tired nerves at night after this enthralling adventure!
Day - 4
Another day begins and the following options are available! There are endless water-sport opportunities as Dubai has some of the whitest and sandiest beaches in the world! Al Safa Park is one of the oldest amusement areas and a favourite for sports enthusiasts, and many visitors enjoy playing tennis, volleyball, and soccer. Children love playing games in the video arcade, or riding the Ferris wheel and bumper cars. The Park even has a maze to wander through. There are barbeques and picnic areas available for those who want to make a day of it. Dubai now has its own snow skiing centre, which is located in the new Mall of the Emirates (MOE) and offers both skiing and snowboarding, with a slope that is quite large for an indoor area. Squeeze in as much as you can!
The Camel Race Track is one of the more unusual attractions, with races being held on Thursday and Friday in the winter. Not only can you watch the races, but you'll have the opportunity to visit the paddocks. Vendors sell everything from beads to rugs and blankets, so you can purchase souvenirs!
Return back to check out of the hotel later, and catch a flight to your place of residence, with a super sense of satisfaction from this exciting emirate `pearl in the ocean’ getaway!
