First thing you should always remember to plan you trip to Dubai is what is "OK To Board"
OK TO BOARD : Once you receive a valid UAE visa after applying for a UAE visa, you have to send your visa copy to the airline you have booked your UAE flight ticket with. After rechecking your UAE visa, the airline approves your ticket and marks your flight PNR as OK to Board. All this is done by your visa agent. Emirates Airlines and Jet Airways don't need OK TO BOARD.
This word OTB(Ok To Board) created hell lot of chaos.
I booked my tickets with Air India Express worst mistake of my life. Because on 19th Oct early morning I get message from Air India Express that my flight was delayed by 13Hrs and scheduled at 20th Oct 3:00 AM which was big shock but Indigo came to rescue and finally on 19th Oct from Indigo desk we booked our ticket and also they managed our OTB which earlier was linked with Air India Express.
Day 1(19th Oct): Arrived Dubai at 10:00 PM. Pick Up was arranged from airport to our hotel Hyatt Regency,Deira by Our travel manager(Kesia Holidays, Ms.Asha, Ms. Sini).
Day 2(20th Oct): After rocky journey of 19th. It was a day of leisure. Breakfast was great and it was included hotel package also you can include lunch and dinner as per your choice. Hyatt Regency is near by Metro station and Gold Souk. So to travel and explore the city you can get free drop to Metro station also there is daily plans which hotel provides like free pick up and drop to Dubai Mall , Mirdif City Center, Kites Beach etc. So We planned to go Dubai Mall and after returing from Dubai Mall in Metro in evening we planned to go Mirdif Mall.
Day 3(21st Oct): To our surprise , What we see Mercedes Viano for pick up. So first we visited Jumeirah Mosque but tourists are not allowed to go inside. You can click the photos from outside. Next was Jumeirah beach and Burj Al Arab and it was scorching heat outside and not a proper time to enjoy on beach. So we just took the photos of Burj Al arab so make sure to take jumeirah beach tour in evenings or early mornings because heat is unbearable in afternoon. Next stop was Palm Island. On Palm Island you have varied options like Lost chambers, Aquarium , Dolphin Show and Water Park. But we choose Lost Chambers and it was one of the best experience of life time and most recommended than we took mono rail which was good experience as it takes you on tour of Palm Island and you can click some good pictures of Atlantis. Mono rail drops you at last exit point of Palm Island from where you get your car/cab. Then next was Dubai Museum, if you are interested in knowing history of Dubai and their culture(3 AED/person).
In evening, we went Meena Bazaar nearby museum from where you can buy souvenirs , perfumes , chocolates , dates etc.And if you crave for Pani Puri in Dubai , Kailash Parbat is good indian restaurant in Meena Bazaar.
People are very helping and honest in Dubai.
Day 4(22nd Oct):After good heavy breakfast we went Mall of Emirates what a beauty! Architecture of Mall of Emirates is magnificent. We went Mall of Emirates for Ski Dubai. We wished to see penguin show but Penguin Show was full and
evening slots were available so its better to book in advance ! Sigh we have to return. So then we headed towards Marina Walk where we hired personal yatch at Just 400AED but you can bargain with them and experience was great. Next was
fountain show at Dubai Mall starts at 5:00 PM Evening and repeats at every 15 minutes different show till 11:00 PM .Then we went 124th floor Burj- Khalifa , view from 125th floor deck was unforgettable but those with fear height and vertigo should avoid.
Day 5 : After hectic day 4 , day 5 start was lazy we went for breakfast late. Then we planned to go Gold Souk my mother and mother -in -law were more excited for gold souk then burj khalifa . We took cab and went Gold Souk which was near by our hotel. In evening we went for dessert safari in land cruiser it was fun it included dinner , you can enjoy sheesha and belly dance. This is how my Dubai trip came to an end . It was wrap up time.
Day 6:Flight from Dubai to Mumbai (Jet Airways).
