Dubai in Five Hours
Short on time or passing through for the day? We explore all the highlights of Dubai in 5 hours – old, new or a mixture of both. The choice is yours. . . . . it’s flexible.
5 hours in Old Dubai –
The morning starts with a visit to the Dubai Frame with uninterrupted views of old & new Dubai, past Zabeel Palace, Zabeel mosque, followed by a trip back in time to Al Fahidi, a historical area that dates back to the 1800s. Here we explore the history of the old trading center of Bur Dubai and Deira – a water abra across the creek to the Textile Souk, Gold Souk and Spice Souk. There’s plenty to see and do in this bustling area and its fun haggling for bargains and treasures. After haggling for souvenirs, you may want to stop for lunch at one of my favorite restaurants and try some Emirati cuisine, weather permitting, walk along Dubai Creek to Al Seef, or be taken back to your hotel, airport or cruise terminal.
5 hours in New Dubai –
Dubai has some stunning architecture! The day starts with a visit to the Dubai Frame, “the biggest picture frame on the planet”, Dubai Mall, seeing the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Opera, the Aquarium, Waterfall and Dancing Fountains. We then head to the Burj Al Arab and Souk Madinat Jumeirah for a photo stop. We drive past Millionaires’ Row onto The Palm to see the famous Atlantis Hotel and the recently built Dubai Eye. Time permitting, we can also pop into the Mall of Emirates famous for the biggest indoor ski slope in the world or have lunch in Downtown overlooking the Dancing Fountains.
You may want to be dropped off for lunch at an iconic Dubai destination and make your own way in the afternoon or dropped back at your preferred location.
5 hours in Dubai can be customized at your request so that you can spend more time visiting the sites that you love. If you are here in Dubai for longer than a day, I can also recommend attractions and restaurants, and other things to do and see during your stay.
