Dubai Marina
The Marina Promenade is the hub of this community. A must visit for all guests. Found on the Marina Side of the Mall you are spoiled for choice of restaurants and street food stalls. I recommend taking a dinner cruise one night around the Marina. See Xclusive Yachts Red Kiosk to book

Day & Night Life
The only way to see all the main sights when in Dubai and surprisingly reasonable on price; take a shared Luxury Yacht Tour from only $55pp Departs from Marina 4 x Daily and includes breakfast or BBQ depending on your selected time slot. Or for bigger groups inquire about a private option. Do it you wont be sorry.

Shopping
A more expansive mall full of all your favorite and high end brand stores. While the wife is shopping why not book yourself in for a ski lesson on the worlds largest indoor ski slope located within this mall. After all that hard work pop into Aspres Bar (the only restaurant that serves alcohol in the Mall) for a beer and i recommend the Pizza, nice place with views overlooking the ski slope.

When staying on the Marina you cannot help to pop in here as its amoungst the life on the Promenade. Marina Mall houses a lot of high street brands just not as many as the big stores. Great if you need to pop in to grab an item to add to your holiday dress wear without the crowds. Connected to the Mall are lines of restaurants and a nice cinema if you would like a quiet night during your stay.

Neighborhoods
Your trip wouldn't be complete without a trip Downtown to see the dancing fountains performing outside of the tallest building in the world. A mere $15 and 20 min ride in a taxi or 30 min on the metro (Dubai Mall Metro Station) you will touch down in Downtown Dubai. Simply had for the Mall and you can access the fountains through there. Fountain shows start at dusk and repeat every 30 min so don't go too early unless you would like to brave the Dubai Mall shopping experience before hand. There are plenty of restaurants for all budgets. Jump into 5 guys for a burger and terrace view or dine in one of the Souk Al Bahar restaurants facing the fountain, i strongly recommend booking the restaurant option 2 -3 days before hand and ask for a seat on the terrace.

Dubai Main Attraction
If your planning to go up to (close to the Top) then book in advance online don't gamble turning up and getting a ticket. Its worth doing for the view and to say you have done it and its not crazy expensive starting at $40 and go up from there depending on the VIP hospitality you desire. If your not one for heights even just taking in the light shows on the tower and fountain shows on the lake in front of the Burj is still worth a visit. For more on Dubai fountains see my post on Downtown Dubai If you want something more special then book a table at the restaurant "Atmosphere" to get the best of both worlds View + Food. Keep in mind it wont be cheap!!

WATER PARKS
3 main options here, and here are my thoughts; 1) Aqua Adventure @ The Atlantis = For me is the best simply for its huge lazy river which takes approx 30 min to get round with a few surprises along the way, rides are as good as you'll find anywhere, easy to find a spot to put your towels. Buy a skip queue pass in busy (Dec) season. ADULT TICKET $78 CHILD TICKET $63 Prices Vary on Summer / Winter Season (best deals in summer) 2) Wild Wadi @ Jumeirah Beach = Another good one and comparable on price not as much fun as Aqua in my opinion. ADULT TICKET $73 CHILD TICKET $59 3) Laguna Water Park @ La Mer Beach If your staying in Marina and considering visiting ii would warn against it, I haven't been but don't hear great things and it is the other side of town. If money is the priority here then you will find Laguna the cheapest option. Tickets start from $39 including food offer. I would suggest looking online at re-sellers to see if you can find the best deal for any of the above it can be an expensive day out.
Good family day out or even for a couple

Metro or Taxi
Metro is 10 min walk from the apartment and is a great way to see the city as it cuts through the center of Dubai. Metro stops at most major areas and Malls. TIP: Go Gold class its $1 more for the best views from the front of the Metro. Taxis are cheap just have a map or clear location details as drivers are sometimes easily confused. A taxi from the airport will be approx $20

Theme Parks
The Theme Parks can be expensive. Areas like the beach are free fun and full of activity.. Bored of JBR head to the New La Mer Beach across town for a change of scenery also has a cheap water park.
