The ship docks 9pm Sat. Jan. 28th and leaves on the 31st 3am.
This gives us 2 days (Sun/Mon) in AD and 3 nights.
Originally, I was planning to go to Al Ain on the 29th. And do AD on the 30th.
Now we have 5 days after this in Dubai Feb. 3rd - Feb 7th. I may do Al Ain on the 5th, Sunday. (Most things are closed on Monday.) But this would take away one of the days seeing Dubai sites.
To make the most of my time your thoughts on:
1 day Al Ain the next day AD sites.
Sitesee both days only in AD.
Below is what I'm interested in and I'm worried that over the 2 days I'll have a lot of free time.
I read ILOVETHEMIDDLEEAST post on things to do in AD.
Want to see the Mosque and then thinking of Masdar. From the 3 reviews on TA, I'm not sure if it's worth it. How much time will I need?
Interested but not important: Heritage Village, Iranian Souq, Marina Mall Tower - only for the view. We are not shoppers.
Driving by the Breakwater and Corniche will be fine. Don't need to walk it. One woman has mobility problems.
I'm not interested in the formula one and race track nor roller coaster.
Would like to see the Emirates. The reviews don't seem good for the afternoon tea. Perhaps we should eat lunch or dinner there?
Is it better to see it in the day or night?
We have 3 nights in AD, so maybe we can go for a late dinner?
For the evening, any suggests as to something important to see/view. Like a nightclub? We don't drink.
I've heard Al Ain takes 1 hour from Dubai and 2 hours from AD. Is that correct?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
