Looks like I’m headed to Bangalore for work again at the end of October, and this time I’d like to take a 48 hour layover in Dubai. Having never been anywhere in the Middle East I think this will be an interesting cultural experience. I’d probably arrive in Dubai Friday night and have all day Sat/Sun before flying home Monday morning.
I’m interested in seeing the old city/Souk, getting out in the desert, and playing photographer for a bit. I’ll probably take a trip up the Burq Khalif becase, why not? I think I’ll pass on the indoor skiing and any water parks. Any recommendations for tour operators for the desert excursions or activities? The 4 wheeling isn’t high on my list, but it might be fun as part of a bigger excursion.
And of course any dining options that I must try? Not necessarily specific restaurants (although those are always welcome) but I’d really like to try some street food or local specialties.
