Dubai One Day Tour: Must See Attractions

Heading over for a quick trip of one day to Dubai, say a layover? Dubai, our second home has so many things to do and experiences to indulge that it is almost impossible to cover all the top attractions without having a proper marked out plan. But guess what, a leading German booking website Rent-A-Guide can provide you the perfect one day itinerary!dubai one day tour must see attractions

One Friday, we got the chance to experience the sightseeing tour provided by them. Together with Ute, our charming and friendly German tour guide – we explore the beautiful city of Dubai once again! 🙂 Here’s the suggested itinerary from Ute.

Dubai One Day Tour Must See Attractions

The City and Jumeirah Mosque

Dubai Marina

Dubai Marina branded by a skyline of skyscrapers, residential apartment blocks and array of yachts provides a cosmopolitan and free-spirited atmosphere. Visitors can choose from its world-beating selection of restaurants, cafes and shops. And now that Dubai gets cooler, talk about al fresco dining with a view!

Palm Jumeirah

You can hop aboard the Palm Monorail that runs to the Atlantis resort or sail around Palm Jumeirah in a yacht or speedboat offered for an additional cost. You can always ask Rent-A-Guide for itinerary modifications that you might need.

Atlantis Dubai

Burj Al Arab

Take the “famous” photo op with the seven star hotel of Dubai – the Burj Al Arab. I guess all visitors of the city do a selfie with the luxury hotel in Jumeirah public beach. It’s one of the most lavish hotel in the world after all!

Jumeirah Mosque

The Jumeirah Mosque is one of only a handful in the UAE that are open to non-Muslims. However, all the usual practice should be done before entering the mosque. It is considered as Dubai’s most beautiful mosque.

Zabeel Palace

Our first time to visit Zabeel Palace which is the official residence of the Ruler of Dubai and Prime Minister of the UAE, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. It is located in the District of Zabeel and fronting the Zabeel Park. You can enter the palace if you are an invited guest of the Sheikh, but like most city tours of Dubai you can just have photo stops in front of the gates instead.

Old Dubai

In the afternoon, around 3 pm, we re-visited the Old Dubai – Al Bastakiya, Dubai Museum, Dubai Creek crossing by Abra, Spice & Gold Souks. It never gets old! It’s a one of a kind experience of Dubai’s history and traditions. The abra is a traditional water taxi that can hold around 20 people taking you between Deira and Bur Dubai. Certainly the best, cheapest (1 Dirham!) and most authentic way to see the creek. If you want it to be a personal cruise, just ask the Abra drivers – no booking is required.

Burj Khalifa

Burj Khalifa inside Dubai Mall

Dubai mall is the largest shopping mall in the world based on total area. It’s a huge, indoor city of amazement, with so much going on. From celebrity appearances, entertainment, to the Dubai fountains, the waterfalls and the entrance to Burj Khalifa. You can actually spend the day and night here. After visiting the observation deck on the 124th floor, Rent-A-Guide recommends to spend the rest of the day here and wait for the dancing fountains from 6pm onwards.

Me, my hubby and our 15 month old daughter are headed into Dubai for the first time THIS Thursday! 🙂 This looks like a great guide to the basic sites to see…though we might have to do it over a few days. Haha. Travel with a baby is definitely MUCH slower than normal.

Hi Shelley! Good to know that! connect with us on Instagram so if you got questions, you can send us a DM 🙂 You’ll surely enjoy Dubai, more that the weather is cold. It’s a family friendly city so no need to worry. I guess traveling with a baby makes you appreciate more the slower pace of life 🙂 Enjoy your stay here guys!
