you can hire a boat and go for a ride down Dubai creek which is nice. I have heard the desert safari is great but it was all booked up when I was there.

Hello t_penguin

In Dubai there are so many things you can do!

You must visit the creek and the bazaars - they are so nice. But if you hire a boat for a trip you must negotiate the price before you go on the boat!!!!!

If you want to do a desert safari I can recommend you the operator "Net-Tours" ( They have good prices and the deserts are great! You can book this about your hotel. The most of the better hotels in Dubai have specific prices. And you must do this (normally) two days before.

Also I can recommend you the "Dubai Museum". It's very interesting to see, how the life was for many many years in Dubai.

If you want to go to a shopping centre I can recommend you the Deira City Centre. There you can get all what you want. But the prices are not so cheap like the prices on the bazaars!

I wish you a nice stay in Dubai.

Many greetings
