2. Dubai Marina (No Entry ticket)An artificial canal city featuring high rise residential towers, villas, cafes, restaurants, shops and hotels. It's ideal if you just want to hang out, sip a cup of coffee and feel the waterfront community located against the Persian Gulf.Nearest metro station: Dubai MarinaAdditionally, yacht can be taken on hourly rental basis to cruise along Dubai Marina, Atlantis hotel, Palm Jumeirah and Burj Al Arab.I rented yacht from Rayna Tours for 1 hour for 600 Dirhams.
After such a tiring journey, standing on the 16th floor of a huge building, fresh air meant nothing but hot air forming fogs on our glass windows. The hotel we stayed in "Burjuman Arjaan by Rotana" was a 23-storey building. As per the height of the building, our doors were auto-locked and we were not allowed to have fun on balcony, still the infrastructure of the room made us delighted. We were excited for our first destination. The first sight was "Marina Dhow Cruise". The cab came an hour late, which made us a bit impatient but we somehow managed to pass our time roaming in the streets. The cruise was a mini restaurant and had tables reserved for people to have their dinner peacefully. We had a palatable dinner and glance of the whole city through a ride, enjoying our food. The tall buildings shone like diamonds up in the sky. The river flows from the city and meets the Arabian Sea. The dimmed lights away from the city gives essence of refreshment. The city off-shore sleeps in the man-made beauty.
Dubai Marina Mall : This mall happens to be close to Dubai Marina. Although the mall is lot smaller than any of the above mentioned malls, it houses most of the international brands.*One can enjoy free events at the front walk ( concerts, flea markets, food festivals)*Take a Abra (small boat by RTA to JLT for 20 AED per person).*Enjoy the sunset and the Marina skyline view from a restaurant outside the mall .

4) Dubai Marina/Jumeirah Beach Residences Head over to JBR after the Palm for a late lunch.Walk around and explore :
Dubai Marina is a man-made marina — a man-made canal city which is the home of the world’s tallest block of super skyscrapers. Princess Tower – currently the world’s tallest residential building is also here. However, Pentominium Tower, when finished, will de-throne Princess Tower. Feast yourself with tall buildings in Dubai Marina and if you have time and budget, dine-in in the many restaurants in the area. Being here reminds me of Singapore. To get to Dubai Marina, take the Metro Train Red Line and get off at Dubai Marina Station or Nakheel Station. It’s on the right hand side.
Its an amazing man made engineering marvel. It looks amazing at night. Its a man made sea with yachts and boats. Highrise buildings lined up on both sides. The view is just amazing and a testimony to how man can play with Nature. Although I won't compare it with nature which is infinitely better than anything man made :)
