Some of our recommendations include:
Jumeirah Mosque – no trip to Dubai is complete without learning about the area’s rich Islamic history. This is one of only a handful of mosques open to non-Muslims. The one hour tours take in the religion and culture and end in a Q&A session where you are free to ask anything relating to Islam. Being a place of worship, dressing modestly is advised.
Gold Souk – Prepare to be bedazzled by this Aladdin’s Cave of jewellery, gifts and ornaments. Best experienced at nighttime, this is a place where hundreds of stores are filled with some of the most exquisitely designed adornments and trinkets in the world.
Dubai Mall – if you want to experience a shopping trip like no other, head over to Dubai Mall, the biggest in the world. With over 1200 stores to get through, you may want to take up the offer of an actual car to take you around the place, keep your eyes open for the 155 million year old dinosaur skeleton, giant ice rink and Kidzania, the child-sized ‘city’ that allows youngsters to learn through play.
