A week in the land of Dubai

14 May 2013

Staff

Where did you go, and how long did you go for?

  

I had the pleasure of being hosted by Definitely Dubai and Emirates in Dubai for 5 amazing days !

What was the best part of the trip?

 

Getting a complete overview of Dubai – but also maybe the Shopping in the Mall of the Emirates, A day out at Atlantis at the Water Park

I stayed at the Jumeriah Creekside, which is a lovely 5-star Hotel, very close to the Airport. Dubai is relatively small and taxis are cheap to get around in. If I returned I would definitely look at staying in the Jumeriah beach area.

What things would you recommend to fellow travellers?

 

A must do for families travelling with kids is Wild Wadi, Kid Zania and Ski Dubai – its just incredible!

Also the places below are great for everyone:

  • Dubai Mall
  • A trip to the Top of the Bhurj Khalifa
  • A day at Atlantis and the Wild Adventure Park
  • Swimming with the Dolphins
  • Jumeriah Beach

Dubai – would not necessarily be a destination for Kiwis, but definitely worth a stopover. It’s so new and advanced and certainly an eye-opening experience!
