Day 1: Explore the City, Dinner at Fogo de Chao

After breakfast on the first day of your trip to Dubai, go explore the city! Indulge in a private tour with a professional photographer to get the best pictures of yourself at the iconic spots. For dinner, head to Fogo de Chao for great food and an amazing photo opp.

Day 2: Dubai Architecture & The Dubai Mall

When I'm in Dubai and I go to see the amazing architecture, I wonder out loud: "How did they make that!?".

First, go to The Frame. Remember to walk down the middle to find the right angle for your picture out front. Trust me, it's worth it to pay extra for the "skip the line" ticket.

Next, visit Burj Al-Arab on the coast and make your final stop at Burj Khalifa to visit the tallest building in the world. After you exit the Burj Khalifa you can spend the rest of day inside the Dubai Mall to explore around 1200 shops and restaurant. The mall even has an aquarium and indoor ski resort, Ski Dubai.  I also suggest visiting the Social House!

Day 3: Dubai Desert Safari

Cars driving on the golden desert in Dubai

If you come to Dubai you must visit the desert! So on day 3, head out on a desert safari. My 5-hour day trip to the desert safari included dune bashing on a ATV, a camel ride, a belly dance show, henna painting, a falcon and a BBQ that offered both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options.

Day 4: Global Village in Dubai

I was pleasantly surprised to discover Global Village in Dubai and can only describe it as Epcot Center on steroids - if you are Disney park fan you will understand.  So, I highly recommend setting aside a day on your trip to Dubai to discover 80 different cultures and try different foods from all over the world at the Global Village.

Day 5: Jumeirah Beach Residence

It's the final day of your trip to Dubai, so let's remember that Dubai is also a beach city! Visit Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) if you are not staying at a beach hotel. 

Enjoy the inflatable water park or the Aquaventure Waterpark. Stay for the nightlife and check out the nightly fireworks. Reserve a table at Myrra Restaurant or the Seafood Market.
