Layover from 730pm to 3am. Efficient itinerary please?

Hello

This saturday i will have 7 hours lay over. Can someone help where to go for quick sightseeing? First time in Dubai. Would like at least to see fountain show and a nice rooftop or non rooftop bars. Other spots for pics are also welcomed

I need to make the trip efficient.

Any tips about transportation is any.

Thanks

Oops, forgot!....recommend that taking taxi is your best option with such a tight layover. Make sure you have changed some money in the airport as you will need this firstly for the taxi to your destination as cards not taken. Take cream taxi with a coloured roof from the rank outside, ignore anyone saying to travel with them, generally they are for premium rated vehicles. The 4wd and Lexus type are also dearer. Pink roofs have lady drivers. Use taxi throughout the stay as are plentiful and can get to anywhere generally quicker than the metro or tram for eg...... but, can get stuck in traffic remember so allow for this when returning to airport.
