How to Experience a Day in Dubai for Under $40 (Family of 4)
Dubai has a reputation of being “the playground” for the rich and famous. Such a reputation leads people to believe that Dubai is way out of their price range. But, here we will show you how to have the perfect day in Dubai for less than $40 for a family of 4. (Easily done when you stay at one of our many holiday home rentals.)
Your Itinerary: A Day at the Dubai Mall
Start off you morning with a tasty omelet and toast. It’s low budget and simple to prepare in the fully-equipped kitchen at one of our short-term holiday rental.
Then take the Dubai Metro to the Dubai Mall. Considered the largest mall in the world, the Dubai Mall isn’t just about shopping. It’s so much more.
Start your experience with a visit to the Dubai Aquarium. Marvel over its 10-million litre tank that is home to over 33,000 aquatic animals. You’ll be amazed by its size, as one of the largest suspended aquariums in the world.
Next, move on to view the authentic skeletal remains of DubaiDino, the mall’s resident dinosaur, standing 24.4 metres long and 7.6 metres high.
Then it’s off to experience the dancing waters of Dubai’s #1 attraction, The Dubai Fountain. Afternoon shows are at 1:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. Saturday – Thursday, 1:30 and 2:00 on Fridays. Experience the fascinating performances to some of the world’s most beloved tunes, including Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. Warning: you’re going to want to come back for the evening shows too.
Take the Dubai Metro to the Dubai Marina Station and head to the promenade near the Dubai Marina Mall to hunt for high-quality souvenirs and unique gifts from local artisans at the Marina Market. (Wednesday thru Saturday only)
After you find that perfect gift, a short cab ride will take you to “The Walk” at the Jumeirah Beach Residence, where you can enjoy Lebanese Manakeesh at the popular Zaatar w Zeit as you watch the people pass by. Then take an afternoon stroll on Jumeirah Beach to take in the beautiful sunset before heading home.
Dine on a simple and easy to prepare pasta dish prepared with fresh tomatoes and eggplant.
