Default 2 day Dubai stopover

Hi,

I have posted this on the Australia site but thought it was worth posting here too.

We are stopping over in Dubai on the way to Melbourne.

Can anyone who has stopped over or been there on holiday reccommend a hotel for 2 nights and any suggestions of what to do in that time, we have 2 full days? (Apart from lay on the beach and not think about anything to do with moving!)

Cheers

pen8uin

Stay at one of the Jumeriah Beach hotels - there's loads.

Day 1, sit next to the pool AM, it then get's a bit hot so head for some winter skiiing at ski Dubai - the worlds largest indoor ski-slope sledging and snowballing are both available. Evening go to Madinat Jumeriah, loads of decent bars and restaurants

Day 2, sit on Jumeriah beach and admire the Burj, PM, take a shopping trip to the old souks in Deira (Spice,Gold etc) then from about 5pm go 4x4ing in the desert with arabian adventures, they do a nice trip, bit of dune bashing, bit of culture, bedoin camp and supper.

Day 3 leave for airport.

24 hours in Dubai - anyone got any better ideas?

(BTW, go with Arabian Adventures, they've got decent cars and are insured, there are a lot of cowboys out there... You've been warned)

Abou $1000 should cover it (excluding gold for your missus)
