Hi Nesral,

Two tours I can highly recommend are the

Viator Desert Safari in a vintage land rover, its a bit expensive, but well worth the money, its a great experience and you get fantastic photos.

Day Tour of Abu Dhabi - with visit to the Grand Mosque, which is so beautiful

Have a look at the Viator website to see what tours they have. They also have a hop on hop off bus which looks great. Go to the Dubai Mall and have dinner in one of the restaurant terraces in the evening and see the amazing dancing fountains they run every half hour from 6pm to 11pm. The restaurants are not that expensive either. The Burj Khalifa is there too so you can buy tickets to go to the 124th floor to see views of Dubai. The Dubai Mall is huge they even have an ice skating rink. We just got a taxi there from our hotel.

You will have a great time, its very hot so be prepared.

We loved Dubai, the Miracle Garden is amazing, took us about half day and a short taxi ride. We also did the Desert Conservation Safari with Platinum Heritage, which was a great afternoon and night out. You can prebook tickets to go to the top of the Burj Khalifa on their website, if you want to go up at sunset, it can book out.

Taxis are quite reasonable in Dubai, and the city has options to cater to all budgets there. They had an amazing subway system, which we never got time to use. There's a lot to do there.

We had 3 nights in Dubai last year and loved it, we went on the arabian adventures desert safari which i highly recommend and we also had a boat ride out looking at all the sights which was amazing too. We had no issues with taxi's and used the metro a fair bit too. Everyone we came across was friendly and helpful

We took some Australian Dollars and exchanged it at the Dubai Mall, most the malls had really good money changers with excellent exchange rates.... way better than the airport. We mostly used our credit card, as it was accepted everywhere (we have an AMEX which has no international transaction fees).

As with dress.... it is a lot more relaxed these days, I didn't feel like I had to cover up. It will possibly be the middle of summer when you go, so it will be really hot, I guess it is what you would feel comfortable given it's hot outside, and the air con inside is a lot cooler.

I used credit cards and took a bit of cash out of the atm when we arrived
