Desert Safari Dubai
@DeeCeeMini
I did mine with ocean air travels and it was worth every penny I paid, and also very safe. The chaperones were well behaved and very professional. Includes to and fro transfers, sand boarding, dune bashing, quad biking, camel rides and a buffet dinner with enterainment.

Souk Madinat Jumeirah
@DeeCeeMini
There are some great shops and restaurants here. There’s also an amazing photo spot that has the Burj Al Arab and the souq in the backdrop.

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque
@DeeCeeMini
Breathtakingly beautiful. I saw it only during the day, they say its all the more beautiful by the evening. If you can, visit it during the day and evening. Wear covered clothing here.

Emirates Palace Marina
@DeeCeeMini
What coffee satiates the javaphile in you? Starbucks? Tim Horton’s? How about a 24K Gold Cappuccino at the Emirates Palace? Yes, you read it right. A cup of cappuccino with real edible gold, It costs a good amount of course, considering the Gold and the Palace but I think its worth. You have to make prior reservations though, by sending an email to restaurants@emiratespalace.ae and they will revert with the availability. The rest of the property is worth exploring too. It's the iconic hotel where SATC 2 - The move was shot

Dubai Mall
@DeeCeeMini
You’ll need an entire day or probably more for this one. There’s so much to see and it’s all worth its salt. The shops, the aquarium, the waterfall, the gold souq within the mall, the beautiful fountain show and lastly the humongous Burj Khalifa. You're sure to hit the goal on your fitbit here :p

Golden Tips - 

1. For a short trip, go on a Tuesday and return on a Wednesday. That way the tickets are cheaper, and you don’t miss out on the weekend or the ladies night(Tuesdays).

2. Ladies make sure to check this for unbelievable offers specially on Tuesdays. There’s free drinks, free spas, free mani-pedis and a lot more.

3. If you’re big on shopping and have any bills amounting to more than 250AED, then you’re eligible for a Tax Refund when you leave the country. They charge 5% VAT and you’re eligible to a refund of about 80% of the amount. Make sure you ask the store for a tax refund sticker on any bill above 250AED , you can submit these bills at the Planet tax refund counters and avail your refund. In order to give you that sticker the shopkeeper will require your passport, so keep it on you when you go shopping.
