Hello forum, after numerous transit flights we have decided to do a short stopover en route to Asia.
We arrive early morning on 19th September and leave late night on the 21st. Will the heat still be intense?
I'm researching things to do and it's proving challenging deciding what to do and where to stay.
Firstly we'd like to see the Burj Khalifa, possibly the Dubai Museum and besides that we're pretty stumped. Friends have said I must do a mall but shopping on holiday is not for me. We like history & culture, not so much into water parks etc. We're not entirely convinced Dubai is our kind of destination but it was my suggestion so I'm trying to make it worthwhile.
We like the beach to chill late afternoon so I'm thinking either Jumeriah area or the walk. Are they one and the same? Are they remote or pretty central or not too far to explore a little? Any other suggestions I'll take on board. I'm checking prices and considering a late booking as prices seem to be cheaper the later we leave it. Sofitel, Hilton, Westin & Mina Seyahi seem to fit our brief if we choose the areas I mentioned.
Also we'd like to do a nice brunch and did consider afternoon tea at the Burj al Arab but the price I'm seein online is £231 per head so I've knocked that one on the head!
Apologies for so many questions and many thanks in advance for any advice & recommendations.
