The Best Four Days In Dubai And Where To Visit

At the end of last year something I had wished for for a very long time, came true. The lovely team at Visit Dubai took myself and a friend to Dubai for a few days to give us the ultimate Dubai experience.

When you think of Dubai, there's so many different things that come to mind, but after visiting I can say it truly is cosmopolitan, elegant and lavish. In that order.

We had a jam packed itinerary full of different experiences that Dubai has to offer. Including land and sea.

Our first day consisted of a fun filled morning exploring the Miracle Garden. In my opinion, a total random feature, but explains Dubai to the full. It's a garden filled with lavish flower displays (including a plane) so beautiful you can't help but be mesmerised. It's a must visit for an Instagram lover as you have to get a picture next to the heart filled flower hallway!

After this we headed out for a desert safari where we were drifting up and down the sand dunes. A total out of body experience where I simply could not stop laughing! The evening ended with food and an array of different shows.

Day two began with the Seawings Sea plane experience. For 20 minutes we got to see Dubai from above visiting all the famous landmarks including the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, and the palm islands.

After this we headed back to our hotel, The Atlantis Palm to emerge ourselves in the Atlantis experience. This started with lunch at Yuan. The Atlantis hotel offers over 24 different restaurant and a huge selection of fast food diners. Yuan is a Chinese restaurant with a delicious menu, I highly recommend the tiger prawns with wasabi mayonnaise and tobiko. Simply delicious.

The hotel also has a fully equip aqua park which we took full advantage of. The aqua park includes a lazy river and a slide through the hotel aquarium. I know...the hotel has an aquarium. It's quite small, but has a large selection of different sea creatures, it's the perfect way to spend a quiet evening in the hotel.

After the aquarium we headed the Ayamna for a Lebanese dinner. The staff were incredible and the food was delicious. We went for the set menu for two and left with two happy full bellies!

Day three we wanted to visit the souks of Dubai to get a more authentic experience. After walking around the old spices, we stepped in to the Dubai Mall. A complete contrast. There you can find everything you can think of and more.

In order to access the Burj Khalifa you have to head through the mall. This is something everyone who heads to Dubai must do. It's incredible standing on the worlds tallest building seeing in to the distance. Rumour has it, If you watch the sunset from up above, by the time you get down you can watch the sunset for the second time. Imagine!

For dinner we headed to the famous Nusr-Et for a delicious dinner. I have no words on how incredible the steak was. If you're after a little flamboyancy, give this place a visit, I spent the entire evening watching what the waiters were up to with the delivery and service of each meal.

Day Four was our last but we still manged to cram in a visit to the beach and a tour of one of the seven signature suites of The Atlantis. If you have $15,000 to spare. I highly recommend an evening there!

All in all, Dubai is such a beautiful place to visit. Although it doesn't have as much cultural history as a lot of other middle eastern countries, there are still so many other things you can do.

I would like to thank Visit Dubai for taking me on this trip. If you would like to see more from my trip watch my vlog down below.
