Hi, we stayed at the Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach. Very nice place.
The concierge arranged tickets for us to go to the top of the Burj Khalifa. This was a skip the line one and took us to the highest observation deck you can get to. It was 3 floors including an out door deck. Included champagne. Worth the extra price if you are going to bother going up. We went up around 4 or 430 and stayed until the sun went down so we're able to see the best of both. No time limit on this one.
Walked around the area before going up.
We visited the UAE Mall which was neat but just another mall.
I recommend going dune bashing. Was alot of fun. We actually did that from Abu Dhabi but can do from Dubai also.
In Dubai we didn't do a lot but what we did do was fun. I would probably go back to Dubai but wouldn't necessarily need to.
Abu Dhabi had a lot to do as well. Probably need to see the Ferrari world. keep in mind that is a pretty good distance outside of the city but HOP on Hop off bus takes you there. You just have to get on a different bus
the hop on Hop off was pretty slow but you got to see most of the city.
I do recommend going to see the big mosque in Abu Dhabi It was very impressive
