17 Apr How to spend 3 days in Dubai..
Dubai is a destination I’ve had conflicting feelings about for years. I was curious to see what the city that boasts the world’s tallest building, an island shaped like a palm tree, and an indoor ski slope in the middle of the desert, is really like.
But I was also hesitant. I’m not the kind of traveller who can sit for hours on a beach or by the pool. Nor do I love shopping malls (vintage boutiques, on the other hand…), so I wasn’t sure there would be enough for me to love in Dubai.
Still, I knew the only way to know whether I loved it or hated it was to go check it out for myself. On my way home from The Philippines, I had a quick three-day stop in Dubai to explore and see for myself whether it really is just a gleaming metropolis, or whether there’s more to be seen when you scratch the surface.
It was entirely surprising – a city that has history, culture, and some absolutely unforgettable experiences on offer. If you want to pack as much as you can into just a few days, check out my weekend Dubai itinerary. Although I must warn you: you may be far too busy being amazed to even bother with the pool!
