Dubai is a dream world. This place unbelievable. Its not a place that God has created, its a human creation, its called The Dubai. I set up a journey with family on my 10th marriage anniversary, planned to celebrate on the top of the world and we did it, we were on "The" Burj Khalifa tower on that day.
Don't miss the DESERT SAFARI, its awesome. You would definitely enjoy huge shopping malls, should go for SKI DUBAI at the mall of Emirates. Do visit Ferrari world provided your kids are old enough to get into the rides. The Gold Souk is for the interested ones, yes its cheaper and the most important is that the Gold there is pure. You may skip Dhow cruise, I personally did not like, nothing special about it. Go have fun.
