What To Do In Dubai
When You’ve Got A 48 Hours For Culture, Cuisine and Couture
2015 is winding down to an end and many of us are looking to fit that last vacation in before knuckling down to the realities of a new year. If you’ve already booked a trip ‘home’ for the holiday season, why not slot in a short stop over in Dubai? With a 48 hour layover you can squeeze a wonderful amount of rest and rejuvenation before carrying on to Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa or wherever it is your loved ones live on the beautiful continent.
From art and culture to fine couture and delicious dishes, Dubai boasts plenty for you to do in a day or two.
The Masjlis Gallery
Walking along the corridors of The Masjlis Gallery, Dubai’s oldest fine art gallery will remind you of the things you used to do get your creative juices cascading. Whether you pick up your paint brushes, sign up for a pottery class or simply make the decision to check out more galleries, you won’t be disappointed with your visit.
Cheap Eats & Shopping In The Satwa District
Before you head back to gruelling away at the office toiling away to feed the village that is your household, make sure you take a visit to the Satwa District. A melting pot known for blending the cultures of the capital, you’ll see a bit of everything here. Many testify to it being the home of Dubai’s best cuisine. When food is made by the locals for the locals, authenticity is an expectation every stomach gets to enjoy.
The cheap eats and fabulously priced shopping, not to mention the masses of kiosks eager to repair any of your damaged electronics, glasses or other goods will have you pencilling in a second visit before you head out of town.
