There are two things that the shopping life of Dubai is famous for it is for gold and spices. The quality and variety and designs or Arabia are renowned, both the traditional and the modern gold ornaments. The designs on the gold ornaments are elegant. Equally renowned are the spices that you can get here, which are brought fresh from the markets of Arabia and from beyond as well. A visit to a spice souk will literally blow your mind with the pleasant smells of cardamom, cinnamon, frankincense and more. To buy gold go to Gold Souk in Madinat Zayed Shopping Center. There are spice souks there as well.

Al Fahidi Fort, which houses Dubai Museum. It is an oasis of calm in the busy Bur Dubai area and gives a great insight into how Emiratis lived in the past. The fort was built in 1799 and was later expanded. Its original walls were built from coral and shell rubble from the sea and cemented together with lime. The museum is open every day and admission is inexpensive.

Burj Khalifa

If the time permits you can explore the city on your own in the night and after that head back to your accommodation.

Dubai is situated around a desert and so it is bound to get hot during the day time. So it is natural that after coming back after a gruelling day of adventure sports you want to cool off at the beach. One thing to remember is that the beach is divided in 2 areas: for women, for men and for couples. It’s a real treat to take a walk on the grass at this verdant park, as it’s a couple of degrees cooler than the beach. Fronting onto a long stretch of sand, the park has lifeguards on duty, a children’s play area, barbecues, picnic tables, walkways and kiosks.
 
You can spend an amazing time here and relax for the whole day as the next day you need to head to Abu Dhabi for an amazing day trip.

Abu Dhabi
