Just in case you were wondering...

I am off to Dubai for a short vacation. Back in a few days.

Dubai tips? Things to do? Things not to do? Please write - I did zero planning for this trip and have no idea what to expect.

Must do : desert safari, walk near the corniche, go on the abra..hm..I'm drawing a blank.

Places to eat...there are many more upscale places/chains that have come up, but the following are classics, they've been around forever.
Al Mallah cafe at Diyafa street- falafel, fresh juice/tahiti/milkshakes- the choc one is great. Sit outside on the street and watch the world go by.

Meena Bazar- gold shopping and falafel from Persian Cafeteria.This is just a tiny cafe that makes amazing desi style dal falefals. No place to sit here. And it's cheap!

Automatic restaurant for the hummus, moutabal and kababs (but you're a vegetarian right?)

Sindh Punjab- chaat/pani puri/chana bhature etc.


Upscale places

Lenotre near Spinneys in Jumeirah- great desserts!

360 degrees at the Jumeirah hotel- it's a circular lounge surrounded by water.

Teatro in Bustan Rotana- amazing food!

There are a lot of great Chinese places to eat as well but I can't recall the names now.
Have fun Simran.
