3 Day Dubai Itinerary

On the first leg of our trip to the other side of the world, we visited Dubai. It’s not somewhere that’s always been on my bucket list but I am glad we came. We landed on 18th January at 07:40 and took off to Singapore on 20th January at 21:15 so we practically had 3 full days. Here is how we spent 3 days in Dubai.
3 Days Dubai Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive at Dubai airport. It is huge! We landed in Terminal 3 and we had to get a train to passport control & baggage claim.
We stayed in Rove Downtown Dubai and it took around 30 minutes (during morning rush hour traffic) and cost AED57.
We used today as a rest day at the pool in our hotel.

In the late afternoon we headed over to the Dubai Mall. It is somewhere you could spend more than a whole day exploring. There’s an aquarium, an ice skating rink, cinema, restaurants & of course countless shops for ALL budgets.

Day 2

We went to the Mall of Emirates which also has a mixture of shops for different budgets.
We walked to see Burj al Arab and spent the rest of the day on Cove Beach. This was around a half an hour walk though most people taxi it.
We also tried to walk to the Marina not realising how far it was! Definitely take a taxi.

Day 3

Today we had a lie in because tonight we have a night flight to Singapore which will arrive the next morning.After checking out, we headed over to Dubai Mall and went to the food court for a late lunch. Also, I couldn’t resist getting an ice cream from Baskin Robbins as the cones smelt divine!
We got a taxi to the airport from our hotel at 18:10 ready for our night flight.
