2 day visit

Hi! We're planning on making a pitstop for 2 days on our way back to the states. I have a few questions:

1. Which area do we stay to be central due to the short trip? Possibly close to the Big Bus stops

2. Attractions not to be missed

3. Uber or taxi?

1. Downtown near Burj Khalifa is most central area

2. Not possible to say for someone else but if it was me- desert safari, Burj Khalifa, the old town and the fountains

3. Taxi, especially from the airport where Uber can’t pick up. Around town still Taxi unless for some reason you can’t find one in which case Uber or the local version called Careem

Please read some of the posts about short visits to Dubai, on your right of screen. You will get a general picture. I would say old Dubai and Dubai Museum to get a feel of the place. Dubai Mall/Burj Khalifa/Atlantis etc are more into the modern Dubai. Desert Safari would involve timing from about 3 pm till 9:30 pm, so plan suitably.
