I had 5 days to spend with my family and Dubai was one of the best places we could go for a short and fun holiday. Wanting an escape from my busy schedule, I decided to go ahead with the family vacation plan and was now looking for some assistance when it came to planning our trip on such short notice. My family and I wanted to cover as many attractions as possible and that too in an organized manner. Thankfully, I found TravelTriangle and the platform truly played a great role when it came to giving us an amazing 2 day itinerary that had everything we wanted. Yes, my customized itinerary was well organized and full of attractions but at the same time, it also ensured that it wasn’t too hectic for my parents.
PS: Out of the 5 days, 2 were spent chilling with the extended family and the remaining exploring Dubai (booked via Travel triangle).

Day 1: Exploring the many marvels of Dubai
We were picked from the hotel for our 4-hour Dubai City tour. We visited the most popular places to visit in Dubai. It was an amazing tour with blend of historic and modern sightseeing. We started our day visiting Dubai Museum in Al Fahidi Fort which was built in 18th century. This was followed by the drive to Dubai Creek which is again a historical area that holds the remains of the past.
Thereafter, we visited the Palm Islands which is the largest artificial island on globe. The tour included the visit to Hotel Burj Al Arab, Hotel Atlantis, Jumeirah Beach and Burj Khalifa. A drive along the Sheikh Zayed Road was a great experience as we witnessed the sky-touching structures of this magnificent city.
In the evening, we headed for the Desert Safari. It was an adventurous expedition with our Land Cruiser giving dune bashing ride in desert. The desert campsite was altogether a different experience for my family. After the exciting dune bashing, we arrived at desert campsite. We liked the hospitality during the entire activity. The Arabic coffee we had was one of its kind and as per tradition was served with dates. Belly dance, Tanoura dance, camel rides were the attractions of the moment. The view of setting sun was beautiful. All of this was followed by sumptuous BBQ dinner. Thereafter, we were dropped at our hotel.
Tip: For the Desert safari, it was recommended by Travel triangle to purchase VIP Passes for the elderly so that they don’t have to sit down. And thanks to their tip, we were able to make the necessary arrangements in advance.
Day 2: A day of adventure, fun and frolic!
We were already excited to visit the Dolphinarium in Dubai, renowned for lovely dolphins drawing absolute attention of the tourists and astonishing them with their tricks and fascinating moves.
We had lunch after this tour and were looking forward to our evening tour.
We reached Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world during the evening. Me and my parents had a wonderful experience in the elevator that took us to 124th floor at a lightening speed.
Thereon, we travelled to Dubai Mall which also included the visit to Underwater Zoo and Dubai Aquarium. The day was hectic but full of memorable moments spent with my family. We came back to our hotel. And yes, we did enjoy shopping especially the attire collection which is not only colourful but also very trendy. I would also recommend the Dubai mall for purchasing electronic gadgets/phones etc. since one can find good deals here. Later on, we came back to our hotel.
Overall, if I recall my family trip to Dubai, it was full of memorable moments. We managed to cover quite a lot in such a short span of time and for that, I think I will give a big credit to TravelTriangle. Overall, my sweet escape to the future city of Dubai was a beautiful one.
