Take a jeep in the desert

Dubai Fountains fountain show
Enjoy the amazing and a spectacular show at the world’s largest choreographed fountain outside the Burj Khalifa. The fountain is larger than two football pitches, the water moves to different types of music and shows over 1,000 different water motifs. The best plastic to enjoy this spectacle is along The Dubai Fountain Boardwalk.
This is a neighborhood with cozy promenades, cafes, restaurants, shops and tall skyscrapers. You can visit the marina where luxury boats dock. Here you will also find the Dubai Marina Mall.
SEARCH THE SMARTEST SPA
If your budget is not enough to stay at the newly opened Bulgari Hotel, book a spa day there for some well-deserved downtime. Most compelling is the 90-minute hammam treatment, where you will be washed with black soap infused with orange blossom, rose and argon oil, before being screwed, moistened and stretched for a feeling of complete holiday bliss (the heated marble you lie on is sensational).
WORK AN APPETITE FOR MEZZE
Vey easy to lose the authentic Middle East among all the glamor and glamor that most people associate with Dubai, but going on a walking tour through the old town is the perfect antidote. Join Frying Pan Adventures to wander busy streets, sample dishes from Lebanese, Yemini and Palestinian cafes and restaurants; Dubai started life as a port so its food heritage is rich and varied.
