We have arrived at the heart of the matter: the details of your 3-day itinerary in Dubai. Find for each day, the circuit to follow to optimize your visits and the map to get around easily.

I consider here that you are going to leave for 3 full days in Dubai and that you have decided to take the Dubai Explorer Pass or skip-the-line tickets to be able to visit as many places as possible.

If you still have questions after reading this article or if you need help organizing your vacation, do not hesitate to ask me your questions in the section dedicated to comments, at the very end of the article.

Day 1: Old Dubai

itineraire-Dubai-jour-1-840x524-1
Visit Dubai in 3 days: 1st day

The visits of day 1:

A. Deira
B. Bur Dubai
C. Dubai Museum
D. Dubai Frame
E. Dubai Garden Glow

A. Le quartier de Deira

For this first day of your 3-day trip to Dubai, I suggest you discover Old Dubai, the most authentic and traditional part of the city where the first buildings were built.

Direction therefore the district of Deira, one of the oldest. Very popular, people come here to stroll and do business (provided you negotiate a little!) in the different souks:

  • The gold souk and its shops exhibiting impressive jewellery. A little difficult to wear every day for the most massive! But if you fancy something a little more discreet or cheaper, you’ll be spoiled for choice too.
  • The perfume souk which is located in Sikkat Al Khail street. Even if you are not a fan of heady perfumes, you will find some very beautiful bottles there. Ideal for bringing back a souvenir (provided you wrap it well).
  • The spice souk and its colorful baskets filled with saffron, curry or cinnamon.

To not miss anything of Old Dubai, you can also take a guided tour. The one I suggest lasts 3 hours and allows you to visit Deira, the souks and also the Dubai Museum (which is also in my program).

The guide is really nice and will teach you all about the history, culture and daily life in Dubai. If you want to make purchases, he can even negotiate the best rates for you.

*If you are taking the guided tour, you can then resume the schedule at step D.

Tips

To reach Deira, take the metro to Al Ras station.

In Dubai, Friday is a holy day (the equivalent of Sunday in Europe). Some places, like the shops in Deira, are usually closed in the morning and reopen in the late afternoon. Think about this detail to organize your visits.

Deira is the best place to change your money in Dubai. Exchange offices in the area offer better rates than at the airport or in shopping malls.

Deira Gold Souk

B. Bur Dubai

After the visit of Deira, continue the visit of Old Dubai by another very old district, that of Bur Dubai.

It is located just opposite Deira, across the Dubai Creek. To cross, take an abra, a small traditional boat, for just AED 1 per person one way. To be paid directly on the boat.

When disembarking, you can first go to the side of the house of Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum converted into a museum with photos and documents on the history of the city. You don’t have to visit but the walk leading there runs along the Creek and the area is nice.

Then retrace your steps to discover the Bur Dubai district itself . I recommend you go through:

  • The Old Souk where you can find all kinds of souvenirs: magnets, slippers, stuffed camels. Here too, do not hesitate to negotiate because the advertised prices are often crazy (between 20 and 50 AED for a magnet!) but can easily be reduced.
  • Meena Bazaar and Hindi Lane where the Indian stalls are grouped
  • The Sheikh Mohamed Cultural Center where you can have your lunch in an authentic traditional house of the Emirates. Reservation required by clicking here.
  • The Al Seef Market and its replicas of traditional houses inside which are restaurants and shops.
Tips

Another popular activity in Bur Dubai is taking an evening cruise on the Creek to enjoy a good meal and the view.

You have the choice between 2 formulas:

A cruise is also offered in the choice of the Dubai Explorer Pass. You must reserve it in advance with the information given to you when purchasing the pass.

C. The Dubai Museum

Finish the discovery of Old Dubai by visiting the Dubai Museum. It is also in Bur Dubai, so you can walk there.

The museum is very well done and retraces the entire history of the city: from the first tribe that settled there, to its incredible economic boom in the 1960s, to the future developments under development.

You can observe many objects of nomadic daily life , weapons and there is a whole section reconstituting several scenes of life.

For only 3 AED entry, it is for me a must visit of this 3 day stay in Dubai. Please note that the museum is closed on Friday mornings.

Dubai-Museum-840x462-1
The Dubai Museum, a must on this 3-day Dubai itinerary

D. Dubai Frame

Then leave Old Dubai by completely changing the register to see one of the latest attractions inaugurated in the city: the Dubai Frame.

With a height of 150 meters high, the structure symbolizing a giant frame allows the top to admire the view of the historic districts on one side and the modern part with the Burj Khalifa on the other.

And since we are in Dubai, to make it a little more spectacular, part of the floor is glazed!

Although the Dubai Frame is quite new, it is already very popular and receives a lot of visitors.

To avoid queuing at the ticket office and directly access the elevator that takes you to the top, I advise you to buy your ticket in advance.

On sale directly by clicking on this link:
Book my Dubai Frame ticket now!

The Dubai Frame climb is not currently offered in the Dubai Explorer Pass.

Tips

To get from the Dubai Museum to the Dubai Frame by public transport: take the metro at Al Fahidi station and get off at Al Jafiliya station.

You can also take a taxi, there are only 5 km between the 2, it wo n’t really cost you much and it will drop you off closer than the metro.

Dubai-Frame-560x840-1
Dubai Frame

E. Dubai Garden Glow

Last visit to the program of this first day: the Dubai Garden Glow.

The garden, which is in fact a very large park, hosts many different settings made with light structures.

On a musical background, the light shows are really elaborate and very well done. There are dozens of different huge reconstructions, most with animals.

The entrance (65 AED) also includes access to the dinosaur park populated by several of its extinct specimens. They are animated, move and growl when you pass by, and needless to say, young and old alike love it!

For the direction of the visit, it is best to start with the dinosaurs when it is still day and continue by the Garden Glow when night has fallen.

The site is open from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Tips

At the ticket office, you will be offered to visit:

  • The Magic Park for 30 AED: a place designed for taking pictures of yourself in 3D scenery. Nice enough to do to pass the time before the evening.
  • The Ice Park for 45 AED. I don’t necessarily recommend it, it just exhibits a few ice sculptures and it’s not worth the price.

Second day in Dubai: what to do and see?

itineraire-Dubai-jour-2-840x524-1
Visit Dubai in 3 days: 2nd day

The visits of day 2:

A. The Etihad Museum
B. The Jumeirah Mosque
C. The Sea
D. The Dubai Mall
E. The Fountain Show
F. The Burj Khalifa

A. L’Etihad Museum

For the second day of your 3 day Dubai tour, I recommend starting with the Etihad Museum.

To get there, the easiest way is to take the metro to the World Trade Center station + a taxi.

The museum is interested in the founding process of the United Arab Emirates and the 7 sheikhs who contributed to it.

Through testimonials, films and interactive terminals, you will discover all the elements that were necessary and put in place to create the Treaty of the Union, ratified in 1971. You will also be able to realize all that this treaty brought about changes for the country.

I find the visit very complementary with the Dubai Museum.

Admission at 25 AED for around 1 hour of visit.

Etihad-Museum-Dubai-840x434-1
Etihad Museum Dubai

B. Jumeirah Mosque

The Jumeirah Mosque is the only one in Dubai where non-Muslims are allowed to enter.

If you want to discover the interior of a mosque and learn more about the rites and customs of Islam, this is the only opportunity you will have during your 3-day Dubai itinerary.

Tours are guided only and take place every day (except Fridays) around 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. It takes about 1h15 to visit.

Pay attention to your outfit: everyone must have their legs and arms covered + hair for women.

If you don’t want to visit the interior of the mosque, you can still admire the exterior because it is on the way to the next stop of the day.

Tips

For those who wish to take the guided tour, it is better to reverse and do the mosque first then the Etihad Museum because the latter only opens at 10am. You will therefore not be able to visit it before.

There is just a 10 minute walk between the 2 so it doesn’t change much.

mosquee-de-Jumeirah-Dubai-840x484-1
The Jumeirah Mosque

C. The Sea

On leaving the mosque, you will only need 5 minutes on foot to reach the entrance to “La Mer”.

The area has plenty of restaurants and cafes with terraces facing the sea. Perfect if it’s lunchtime!

You can also stroll along a landscaped promenade or rent a deckchair and enjoy one of the beaches.

La-Mer-Dubai-840x431-1
The Sea Dubai

D. The Dubai Mall

This visit of Dubai in 3 days would not be complete without a visit to the Dubai Mall which is the most visited shopping center in the world!

Shopping enthusiasts can heat up their credit card in one of the mall’s 1,200 shops . International brands or luxury boutiques, men, women, children, there is something for everyone and for all budgets.

To prepare for your shopping session, you can consult the store map right here.

If you’re not a fan of shopping, the Dubai Mall is also home to cinemas, an ice rink, a kart track, arcade games and even a flight simulator.

I also recommend that you visit the aquarium in the mall.

The ticket includes passage through the aquarium tunnel and a visit to the underwater zoo which houses several kinds of fish, jellyfish and the star of the place: Mr King Croc, one of the largest living crocodiles in the world.

I strongly advise you to book your ticket on the internet because it is cheaper than at the counter and it saves you queuing. You have 2 possibilities (click on the links):

For those who have taken the Dubai Explorer Pass, the discovery of the aquarium is offered in the choice of activities.

Tips

To go from La Mer to Dubai Mall, the most convenient way is to take a taxi (5 km journey). There is no metro station next to the sea.

In the Dubai Mall and public places in general, it is necessary to have a decent dress (legs and shoulders covered). Signs of affection such as kisses or holding hands are not allowed.

Dubai-Mall-840x454-1
Dubai Mall – Visit Dubai in 3 days

E. Fountain Show

At the end of the day, when night begins to fall, reach the exterior of the Dubai Mall.

Try to find a good place on the edge of the artificial lake to watch the fountain show, a ballet of water jets to a background of music, which is extremely popular in the city. There are a lot of people and it is better to go a little early to choose your place.

Shows take place every 30 minutes between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. There are several different ones depending on the music.

You can also admire the show up close by booking an abra ride on the lake:

Tips

The 2 terraces of the Apple Store located in the Dubai Mall offer a beautiful unobstructed view of the show.

Dubai-Fountains-840x499-1

F. Burj Khalifa

This is clearly the must visit on your 3 day trip to Dubai: the Burj Khalifa.

From the 124th floor of the highest tower in the world, you can contemplate the splendid panorama over the whole city.

And for those for whom that is not enough, it is also possible to climb to the highest panoramic platform in the world located at 555 meters high, on the 148th floor.

I include this visit at the end of the day, because it is when it is dark that the view is the most impressive. All skyscrapers and buildings are illuminated.

To go up to the Burj Khalifa, it is imperative to book your ticket in advance and thus be able to choose your time slot. And I repeat myself, but it’s much cheaper than direct from the counter.

You will have the choice between different types of tickets (click on the link in orange for info and reservations):

As I told you earlier, if you want to visit the Aquarium and the Burj Khalifa, the most interesting ticket is this:
Book my Burj Khalifa + Aquarium ticket now!

If you have the Dubai Explorer Pass, access to Burj Khalifa is offered as 1 activity.

Tips

To access the Burj Khalifa, go to the LG level of the Dubai Mall and follow the signs “At The Top Burj Khalifa”.

For the last day of your 72-hour stay in Dubai, I present to you 3 options. To see what you prefer according to your interests.

Visit Dubai in 3 days: 3rd day

Day 3 visits (option 1):

A. The Walk and The Beach
B. Dubaï Marina
C. Mall of the Emirates
D. Global Village ou show « La Perle »

A. The Walk and The Beach

Start the morning with a walk on “The Walk” avenue where there are quite a few chic boutiques and many terrace restaurants.

To reach it, take the metro to DAMAC station and then the tram to Jumeirah Beach Residence.

You can also take the opportunity to relax a bit at “The Beach”, the public beach and why not swim. Several nautical activities are also offered to occupy you for part of the morning.

Jumeirah-Beach-Residence-The-beach-840x462-1
The Walk and The Beach / JBR

B. Dubai Marina

Then walk (about 15 minutes) to the Marina district.

Here too the walk is rather nice, you will stroll at the foot of the buildings and can admire the yachts and other luxurious boats.

And precisely mini cruises in luxury boats are also offered from the Marina.

Lasting 2 or 3 hours, they also include a barbecue lunch. The boat not only stays in the marina but also passes the island where the Ferris wheel and Atlantis, one of Dubai’s most famous hotels, are located.

Departures are around 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.

You must book by clicking on the link below:
Book my Dubai Marina cruise now!

The mini cruise is also one of the attractions offered in the Dubai Explorer Pass.

The area is also home to the Dubai Marina Mall, a shopping mall.

Tips

The Dubai Marina is also the starting point for the highest urban zip line in the world ! This is one of the best things to do in Dubai in 3 days!

Start from the top of a building and descend at 70 km/h above the marina. The experience is just incredible and yes I recognize it a bit scary especially before starting. But you are sure to fill up on adrenaline!

To share your achievement with the whole world and to brag about yourself, you will even leave with some photos and the video (included in the price).

To book your zipline descent in Dubai and live an extraordinary experience, you just have to click on the following link:

C. Mall of the Emirates

Then take the metro back to the Mall of the Emirates, Dubai ‘s other big, well-known mall .

And for good reason, there is an indoor ski resort! Ski slope, snowboard, chairlifts, wooden chalets and temperature, it’s like being in the heart of a mountain resort (except for the people who will watch you behind the bay windows, a bit as if you were locked in the ball snow! ).

Don’t worry if you haven’t brought all your equipment in the suitcase, everything is provided.

Book your entry ticket for Ski Dubai by clicking here.

If you don’t feel like skiing, no problem, the Mall of the Emirates is home to hundreds of shops for all budgets and restaurants.

And if you have decided to visit Dubai in 3 days with your children, take them to the arcade area with lots of games.

D. Global Village or “The Pearl” show

For the evening, I leave you the choice between 2 options:

1) Visit the Global Village.

Located outside the city, the Global Village is home to dozens of country pavilions from around the world. The sets are impressive and really well done!

Through hundreds of stands, you can discover the specialties of ChinaThailand, the Emirates Japan, the United States, etc. You can buy typical objects or clothes from each country and of course taste the international cuisine.

The place is huge and extremely well thought out. It is necessary to plan at least 3 hours of visit.

The Global Village only opens from 4 p.m. every day from early November to early April (closed the rest of the year). Admission at 15 AED.

You have to do it at night because that’s when the buildings are prettier.

Please note: on Mondays, access reserved for families with children and women.

From the Mall of the Emirates, take bus 106 (20 AED round trip – 30 minutes journey) to go to the Global Village.

Tickets are on sale directly here:

2) Attend the show “La Perle”.

This very spectacular show, with its light effects and special effects, is the most famous in the city. Everything is thought out to the millimeter, the stagings are very successful as are the performances of the artists and acrobats.

There are only 2 performances every night, so I advise you to reserve your place in advance using the link below:
Reserve my ticket for La Perle now!

The closest metro station to the venue is Business Bay. The best is then to take a taxi to do the remaining 4 km.

Day 3 of this trip to Dubai (option 2)

The second option I suggest is to spend the day on the artificial island of Palm Jumeirah.

This is where the famous Atlantis hotel is located , one of Dubai’s emblematic hotels but also the largest water park in the city: Aquaventure Park.

Slides, swimming pools, enough to spend a great day with the family to conclude your 72-hour itinerary in Dubai.

Next to the water park is also a lagoon in which you can swim with the dolphins. If you choose this activity, you will automatically have access to the Aquaventure on the same day.

In the Atlantis hotel, on the lobby level, you can also visit The Lost Chambers Aquarium, an aquarium where you can observe rays, sharks and piranhas.

You must book your tickets for these attractions by clicking on the following links:

There is also a combined Aquaventure + The Lost Chambers ticket, to be purchased below:

There are 2 performances per evening, one around 7:30 p.m. and the other around 10 p.m., so you have plenty of time to get home and change after a day at the water park.

Tips

To go to Atlantis and Aquaventure you need:

  • Take the metro to DAMAAC Properties station
  • Board the tram to the Palm Jumeirah stop
  • Follow the signs to join the monorail – 5 min walk
  • Take the monorail – 30 AED for the return ticket. There is a monorail every 15 minutes between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m.

Day 3 in Dubai – Excursion around (option 3)

Last possibility for this last day: opt for an organized excursion to discover the surroundings of Dubai.

The most popular is the excursion in the desert with ride in 4 * 4 and downhill surfing in the dunes + 1 camel ride.

The outing also includes lunch or dinner in a camp in the desert with demonstration of belly dancing and henna tattoos.

And as the activities are hollow, you will end up having lunch or dinner in a Bedouin camp in the middle of the desert. Throughout the meal, you can enjoy dance demonstrations or get a henna tattoo.

It’s really the best choice for this unmissable outing around Dubai (especially since it’s so good that it’s guaranteed satisfaction or your money back! ):
Book my desert tour in Dubai now!

If you prefer something more sporty, you can opt for one of the following 2 excursions:

Both are really great, it’s up to you to choose which you prefer!

A desert excursion is also offered as part of the Dubai Explorer Pass activities.

Tips

If the desert is not your thing, I recommend visiting Abu Dhabi instead. Several excursions departing from Dubai including transport and guide allow you to discover the capital of the UAE.

Here are the different formulas offered. I advise you to click on the links to access the details and prices:

Visit Dubai with the family

The itinerary that I have concocted for you is very suitable for visiting Dubai with children.

The city is quite large but the public transport network is well developed, which is very practical for getting around with the family. You can do a lot of things by metro in particular.

And for the rest, you can get around by taxi because the prices charged are really low and there is no risk of scams, everyone puts the meter. If you have already traveled in Asia, especially in Thailand, you may have had bad experiences at this level, but in Dubai, there is really no problem.

I’ll give you a brief summary of the activities to do as a family for 72 hours in Dubai:

Tips

If you want to make some changes in this 3 days Dubai itinerary and add more activities for your children, I advise you to visit:

  • Laguna Waterpark, smaller than Atlantis but less crowded and less impressive for young children
  • The Miracle Garden for a stroll through structures covered in millions of flowers
  • Dubai Creekside Park, one of the few places in the city where they can enjoy large green spaces
  • IMG Worlds of Adventure: a huge indoor amusement park
  • Dubai Parks and Resorts which includes several theme parks including one on cinema and cartoons or another dedicated to the LEGO universe
  • The Green Planet to see rainforest animals and plants.
