Hello
I'm going to Dubai at the end of October for my birthday with my boyfriend. Neither of us have been before but I've got a rough plan on what we'd like to do.
Our flights and hotel are already booked - we are staying at the Marina for 6 days.
I plan on buying the Dubai 'Choose 4' Explorer pass to use on the Burj Khalifa, Aquaventure, Motiongate Dubai and the Desert Safari and BBQ. Can any one who is a Dubai regular let me know if that's a good way to spend our time? We aren't too fussed on Motiongate but as we get four picks on the card decided to make it our 4th! Plan on taking 1,500 for the 6 days with that being primarily for food/drink and the odd taxi is this enough?


Tuesday - Arrive 8am - Attempt to check into hotel and if possible rest for a while then spend afternoon at the pool. Evening plans - Burj Khalifa and fountain show then inside the Dubai Mall and dinner at Chillis or Cheesecake factory.

Wednesday - beach during the day. Wingsters in Marina for lunch and late afternoon/evening Motiongate theme park. Olive garden at Riverland section for dinner.

Thursday Miracle gardens in morning then head to Aquaventure water park and explore the Atlantis Hotel afterwards. Evening meal STK JBR.

Friday - My birthday. Plan is Brunch at Wanderlust Brunch at Garden, The JW Marriott Marquis 12-4pm with drinks package then head back and chill then head out happy hour - any suggestions?


Saturday - Day at pool / beach and then 3pm pick up for the Dessert Safari tour & BBQ. Try and visit the souks in evening.


Sunday - Head to airport at lunchtime - morning having breakfast and probably not much else.


Many Thanks
Katie

Good plan Katie, fitting a lot in. You will find that aquaventure will be busier on the Thursday night as its the start of the weekend (fri/sat is weekend) . It wont be unmanageable but it will certainly be busier than midweek.
I would be tempted to eat outside at the Mall at one of the restaurants overlooking the fountains with an outdoor terrace. You get a good view and its a nice way to have a meal.
Check out the entertainer app for discounts on your food. Its on offer now so you may get a good deal. Check to see if the restaurants you have chosen are on there.
Personally, I wouldnt plan too much after brunch (especially with the drinks package), more than once Ive ended up having an early night after a good brunch!
You have picked a really good time to go, October is my favourite time to go 😁

Hi we have booked to go August 2020 staying at the Ritz-Carlton club rooms. Has anyone stayed here? I know its going to be very hot so we arent planning on doing much other than chilling but any suggestions will be helpful. I did think about the water park but it may be too hot for queuing?
