Thank you, this already helps us plan how much money to change.
Arrival of our ship is 2pm on a sunday. We´ll stay on board overnight and then have to leave the ship on monday morning.
So basically we have the afternoon and the evening / night to ourselves. I thought, since everything is dark, there´s not much to do / see at night. Please let me know if I am wrong.
Dubai is quite a large city with lots to see and do however, with your limited time I would suggest you stay in the Downtown area if you intend to go up the Burj Khalifa. Within that same area is the Dubai Mall with the huge aquariam and other attractions inside, the Dubai Fountains (similar to the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas) in the pedestrian area outside the mall. Across a small bridge from the mall is Souk Al Bahar that houses several restaurants and bars plus the beautiful Dubai Opera House is also within the same location.. You can easily pass the afternoon and evening within this location and then get a taxi back to the port. Depending which cruise line you are sailing they may operate a shuttle service between the port and Dubai Mall, I know several of them do...
