Ah, Dubai! The city above the clouds, a place that transcends all expectations and transports you to the future. It’s got to be on nearly every travelers list, and more importantly, on every shoppers list. It has also got to be one of the best tourist hot spots, with plenty to do and experience. I would definitely call it an inclusive holiday destination.
My wife and I had been considering taking a couple trip to Dubai for quite some time now. We browsed through a bunch of packages before we came across TravelTriangle. What we found to be in our favor was the fact that we could customize the package to fit our preferences. Well, we were sold! And I have to say it was a great decision, we are back now and couldn’t have had a more memorable time in Dubai. Here are some of the details of our trip!

Experiences Not To Miss On A Couple Trip To Dubai
1. Zooming through the sand dunes!
If anyone had ever been to Dubai, they’ve always raved about the desert safari. In Fact it is one of the top things to do in Dubai and on every thrill-seekers bucket list! It’s a great experience not just for the kids but for the adults as well. After the dune ride, we head for a delicious BBQ dinner where we also enjoyed some wonderful live performances!
2. Atop the tallest building in the world!
From the top of the Burj Khalifa, the world seems so small and far away. The little shops and building that light up the city appear as mere dots forming a picture perfect scenery. My wife and I couldn’t get enough of this view! We took lots of pictures and then made our way to the mall for shopping and to pick up some souvenirs for our loved ones back home.
3. A glimpse into the underwater world!
I have been to aquariums before, but never came across one as spectacular as the Dubai Aquarium. While most people may brush this off, I would definitely recommend adding this to your itinerary. You’ll spot a wide variety of fishes and sea creatures you hadn’t even heard of before.
4. A peaceful day on the cruise!
During our couple trip to Dubai, we wanted to spend an evening on the Dhow Cruise which is another one of the popular attractions in the city. The view of gleaming skyscrapers is simply enchanting to say the least. The cruise itself is beautifully decorated with vibrant lights, creating a wonderful atmosphere. We enjoyed a sumptuous dinner here, captured some great pictures and called it a night.
5. A day spent in the city of lights
After enjoying the stellar city of Dubai, we also planned on visiting Abu Dhabi for a day. Here, we enjoyed a city tour and explore the major sights of the city. Abu Dhabi is so beautifully planned and every building that meets your eye is sure to captivate you. We made a stop at a mosque and then head to the famous Ferrari World which was an exquisite experience altogether.

Answering your questions!
Q1. How much does a vacation in Dubai cost?
Well, that totally depends on your personal preferences regarding accommodations, shopping and travel. We had nearly everything included in our package except for the airfare and 75,000 was more than enough. If you intend on shopping a lot, your expenses will definitely go up.
Q2. What can I do in Dubai for 6 days?
I would suggest visiting the top tourist attractions first, such as the Burj Khalifa, Palm Dierra, Dubai Aquarium, Desert Safari and Dhow Cruise. If you’re left with time, you should also visit some of the major shopping malls which are simply class apart. Also, save a day for Abu Dhabi because it is definitely worth a visit.
Q3. What part of Dubai is best to stay in?
If you are more of a party person and want to enjoy the nightlife, then Downtown Dubai is a great place to stay. Whereas if you are looking for a more peaceful and relaxed stay, look for accommodations near Jumeirah beach or Palm Dierra.
Q4. Is Dubai safe for families?
Yes, definitely! Just make sure to stay within the law and read about the things not to do in Dubai. Apart from that, it is one of the safest places for tourists to visit.
Q5. What should I buy in Dubai?
We made a few shopping stops and found out that Dubai has a great market for gold jewelry. We also bought some for ourselves. Apart from this, pashmina shawls and Persian rugs have a huge market as well.
Dubai is the city of the future. With its spectacular skyscrapers, wonderful malls and beautiful beaches, you’ll never run out of things to do in this mesmerizing city. Be it a family trip or a couple trip, you are assured a fun-filled time here. If you too would like to enjoy an exquisite holiday, head to TravelTriangle and customize your own Dubai package.
