only 48 hours in dubai!

hi - we are having a stopover in Dubai on way home ( Australia) from Europe! We are literally only there for maybe 48hrs! Arrive in on Thursday mornign around 5.30-6am from a night flight so will prob sleep a few hrs then we leave Saturday morning 10am.

question is - is it worth doing a desert safari on such short time ? since they take up about 6/7 hours

if we do it i was thinking we do it the Thursday at 3pm - after a sleep we could go over to Dubai mall have a look around for a couple of hours then on Friday go to the the Jeremiah beach and marina.

Yes it is worth doing.

Have you sorted your hotel out yet ?

You could look at Jumeirah Creekside as that has 24 hour checkin and will mean that you get your room straight away. To be sure of getting a room to sleep in at other hotels you may have to book from the night before, which will add to your costs

Don’t miss Desert Safari! Don’t. I repeat that again!

Its Really worth it and I did it with ONE DXB and they were exceptionally good so reach them through their website or facebook page.
