First Time in Dubai – 5 Top Tours to Try

I recently returned from a week in Dubai, UAE. This was my very first trip to the Middle East. When I return from trips, I like to reflect on what was unique to the location and the visit. Every city is different, the food, the language, sometimes it feels the complete opposite of home. Those are the elements I travel for. When I reflect on my recent trip to Dubai, there are so many moments that stand out in my memory, but I shortened the list to just 5. These are My Dubai Top 5:

How to Spend Two Days in Abu Dhabi

There are many activities in Abu Dhabi. deciding which ones to do, where to go and how to get there, is a little tricky. Your best bet, is getting a 48 hour Big Bus ticket. Technically the tour begins at Marina Mall with 16 stops and can be finished in a day. There's also a separate Yas Island route which would be ideal for day two. With the 48 hour ticket, you could probably finish the entire tour in that amount of time. But if you're limited for time, I would recommend: Observation Deck 300 in the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers With your Big Bus ticket it costs $10USD. The views are incredible from the 75th floor. It's the highest public viewing area in the city.
