We only spent one whole day in Dubai. We arrived in the evening from our desert trip and stayed at some friends place. We went for dinner with them and had a fun night out in Dubai. Because we stayed at their flat we don’t actually have a hotel recommendation for this city.
We had dinner at Pier7 which is located in the Dubai Marina and is a building with 7 floors and each floor hosts a different restaurant. On some days of the week they have happy hour where girls can drink for free 😉
The next day we went up early to go to top of Burj Khalifa. We can recommend going early to avoid the bigger crowds. The view is stunning! We have never been in such a hight and it was an amazing feeling.
After we went to Shimmers on the beach in the Madinat Jumeirah Resort to have lunch. It’s a very fancy beach Restaurant where you have a great view on Burj Al Arab. We had a fun and delicious lunch there.
In the afternoon we went to the Miracle Garden which is worth a visit if you love flowers and like to take pictures. This garden feels like Alice in Wonderland and there are a lot of cute spots. Unfortunately in the afternoon and at sunset there were a lot of people. Next time we would go early in the morning to avoid the crowds.
