First day in Dubai
Gold and spice market in Deira
Start your first day in Dubai with a tour of Deira, the old part of Dubai, which is located in the northern part of Dubai and very close to the airport, do not miss the opportunity to enjoy a stroll along this part and it is one of the places to visit in Dubai in two days.
Most of the shops there open around 9 to 10 pm, and get crowded quickly, so I recommend you visit early in the morning before more tourist crowds arrive, and from there you can buy souvenirs, clothes (including traditional Arab clothes) as well as gold, spices and carpets And other great things, knowing that the prices here are much better than in the malls (especially for souvenirs), and if you are about to buy something, it may be better from this market.
If you have already decided to buy something, you should bargain, as bargaining is a common practice in such local markets, and usually adds more joy and fun to your trip.
Through these souks, you can walk towards the abra station in the Deira Gold Souk and reach the other side of Bur Dubai by riding (a water abra), which gives you great opportunities to take beautiful and unforgettable photos.
Bur Dubai also has some museums and another market where you will find more spices, gold and other things, including souvenirs, carpets and clothes. Of course, you can spend a whole day exploring this part of Dubai, but if you only have a couple of days in Dubai, I recommend planning to visit in two to five hours to see these two parts of Dubai.
La Mer, is a new beach front with lots of great and luxurious restaurants and cafes, street art, and fun details, and it is a great place to relax and spend quality time among a lot of fun entertainment, especially if you go there in the afternoon, where you enjoy swimming Have some lunch, and then head to the next place.
La Mer enjoys beautiful views of the Burj Khalifa and is close to areas such as Dubai Downtown or Jumeirah Beach.
or jumeirah beach
You can then move on to visit Jumeirah Beach which is an option depending on your time and preferences, as you can choose between it and La Mer, which is not far from Bur Dubai, where you can get there by bus or taxi. This beach offers beautiful views of the world’s only 7-star hotel, the Burj Al Arab, and from there, take a bus or taxi to downtown Dubai.
After spending some time on the beach, head to Downtown Dubai, knowing that there is no train connection (neither from Jumeirah Beach nor from La Mer) but you can get there by bus or taxi.
Downtown Dubai is one of the best places to visit in Dubai, especially with it being packed with many interesting tourist attractions in Dubai, including The Dubai Mall, The Dubai Fountain, and Burj Khalifa. Indeed, this place should be on the list of any tourist schedule to visit. The city of Dubai.
Burj Khalifa is one of the tallest and most beautiful buildings in the world, and whether you just plan to stand in front of it or if you plan to reach the top, this is one of the top attractions in Dubai. But if you plan to get on the ‘top of the Burj Khalifa’, you should set aside at least 3 hours for this visit, and work on booking online in advance, especially if you have limited time and don’t want to spend a long time in line.
Another place to see within 48 hours in Dubai is the Dubai Mall, which is located next to the Burj Khalifa. The Dubai Mall is definitely worth a visit, even if you are not a big fan of shopping, as there is a lot to do and see in this beautiful place, It is a must see place in Dubai in two days, even if you only have one day you have to add to your Dubai itinerary. It is not just about shopping, you will also find Dubai Aquarium and more attractions here that of course you will not be able to fully discover, but a tour of this really interesting mall will add a lot of richness to your trip.
And next to the Dubai Mall is the Dubai Fountain, where you can watch a beautiful display of the water fountain that operates from Saturday to Thursday: 1:00 pm 1:30 pm 2:00 pm. Friday afternoon shows are held at 1:30 pm 2:00 pm 2:30 pm, while evening shows are from 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm every 30 minutes.
Indeed, this area is also beautiful in the evening, Dubai is safe at night as well, and sitting there and watching the tourists while the Burj Khalifa lights up at night is a great opportunity to have fun.
Visiting Deira and Dubai Downtown is great for a day in Dubai, although it is very stressful but if you are going to relax at La Mer or Jumeirah Beach you will be fine, so if you only have 24 hours in Dubai, this might be The places are perfect for you to get to know the essence of the city in an attractive way.
Where to eat on your first day in Dubai:
Deira is a great place for the cheapest food in Dubai, where you will find many different cuisines, but for a nice dinner/lunch, dining in the city center may be a better option, where you can eat with a great view of the Dubai Fountain, knowing that the restaurants Fountain view tends to be more expensive but there are also some reasonably priced restaurants and fast food outlets in the Dubai Mall.
Second day in Dubai
For the second day, I recommend you to spend some time in Dubai Marina. Start the second day with a beautiful stroll through Dubai Marina, which is one of the largest marinas in the world.
And if you prefer some time at the beach instead of strolling in Dubai Marina, I suggest you visit the JBR Walk, it is the perfect place if you want to swim, watch the locals or if you are with children, where there are many dedicated activities in this area For the little ones, you can also find some street art, many luxury hotels and more things to do.
Also, there are many restaurants and shops, so this walkway is a fun place for people of all ages.
Another highlight of Dubai is to visit Madinat Jumeirah, which although there are many luxury hotels in it, many parts are open to the public and is very charming with all the beautiful markets and lovely restaurants.
You can also do an abra ride and enjoy a meal or take a coffee break, and indeed 1-2 hours is enough if you are in a hurry.
Plan at least half a day to visit Madinat Jumeirah and Dubai Marina, then head back to the hotel to get ready for a desert safari.
Save half a day for a trip to the desert, either in the morning or in the afternoon, it’s definitely a great experience even with only 48 hours in Dubai.
Where to eat in Dubai on the second day
You can dine at one of the most attractive restaurants along Dubai Marina, and if you book a desert safari, you will also enjoy a wonderful traditional meal as well.
