48 Hours in Dubai

If a flying visit to Dubai is on the cards, this guide will help you to squeeze in as much adventure into 48 hours as possible.

While you may only have two days at your disposal, this is plenty of time to experience the sights and sounds of the city. To help you plan out your itinerary, listed below you will find a round up of things to do in Dubai.

The Burj Khalifa and a Helicopter Tour

So where do you begin putting your time to good use? It makes sense to go right ahead and soak up a little luxury. After all, you are in one of the world’s most impressive destinations.
Firstly, jump in a taxi and head straight for the heart of the city.

You should complete this three-mile journey in no time at all and before you know it you can be at one of Dubai’s most sought after attractions, the Burj Khalifa. If you only have 48 hours, it is wise to opt for the fast track option. Here you can take in some of the most incredible views of the city but if you want to see the sights at speed, a helicopter tour would be just as pleasing.

Take in some of the most iconic sights including The Palm, The World and of course the incredible Dubai skyline.

Downtown Dubai

With two full days to enjoy Dubai, an evening in the city is hard to resist. Head to Downtown Dubai where you will be blessed with plenty of luxury dining experiences.

The mall should also be high up on the list of your priorities with over 1200 boutiques to explore. Here you can take in the iconic fountain displays that Dubai Mall is known for.

The souks are also worth a visit, brimming with shimmering gems and you can haggle with the locals for a bargain price. With 48 hours in the city, the options are truly endless. If you want a bit of excitement, why not squeeze in a desert safari? Be sure to book tickets in advance and experience an exhilarating day on the dunes.
