Hey everyone.... ive just finished school in little old New Zealand
Im off to London in Jan 09 to work in a pub
On my way I have a 24hr stopover in dubai over new years, so im keen to party it up or whatever
Yea if your around let me know ..... a ride from the airport would really be appretiated
and if your in the UK next year im keen to travel all around europe
Below are some links to activities/spots that you can choose from for your 24 hour stay in Dubai. Depending on traffic conditions Dubai's Int'l Airport is just 10-15 minutes car ride and 30-45 minutes bus ride from the airport.
www.mydsf.ae (yearly main shopping festival – cultural and shopping experience)
www.skidxb.com (man made skiing slope)
www.wildwadi.com (surfing and water theme park)
Dubai beaches – free, clean, safe and family oriented - Preferred is Jumeirah Beach Park
Apart from above this is my personal suggestion:-
1. Morning: City Tour: http://www.bigbustours.com/eng/dubai/default.aspx or hop on any Public Bus and explore on your own in a very economical way coz Public Buses in Dubai zig zag a lot to reach desired destination.
2. 3:00pm to 9:00pm: Desert Safari (around 50 US$) - Highly recommended - Can be taken up from the airport.
3. Night: 2 Hour Cruise dinner on Dubai Creek- Can be taken up from the airport (around 40+ US$ - Depends on how u bargain). Close by you can visit either Deira area for bargain shopping or Deira City Center for branded items shopping.
I do live in Dubai how ever am not realy sure if am gona be here in Newyear ever as Iam planning to go
to Asia in Dec,
You can walk around Sheikh Zayed Road to get the feel of the country
tour inside the city during the day
Dubai mall, Burj Dubai the tallest in the world, also buj el arab and Madinat jumaira is a must seen
you can go for the desert safri to check it out ( the arab culture) .
For the night you got majorty of the clubs located inside the hotels.
