Dubai was on my travel list for quite a while, specially because it tends to be one of the first destinations for most Indians to travel internationally. But, I'm glad I waited so that I could travel with my sister and make a fabulous girls trip out of it. Here are few details about the trip.
Type of trip: Mid range
Duration: 5 days
Season: February [post winter]
Safety: Dubai was a really safe destination from a girls perspective. We traveled freely and safely across the city and didn't have any awkward episodes.
Day 1 - Dubai Festival City, Souk Madinat Jumeirah
My sister and I arrived the previous evening and relaxed with my cousin because we traveled from different countries, one of us from Toronto and the other from India. It was a long time since we met our cousin who lives in Dubai. Allowing ourselves an evening to chill and unwind was ideal to beat the tiredness.
Our official day 1 started with a late morning visit to the Dubai Festival City where we embarked on a fancy Abra boat ride, the one with air conditioning. It gave us some beautiful city views and was a perfect slow start to the trip.
