I am arriving in Dubai in a couple of weeks at 6:45 PM on a Tuesday on an Emirates flight and departing Wednesday morning at 10:30 on another flight. I understand that Emirates will provide me with hotel accommodations (based on other posts, I think this might be Copthorne Hotel).
I would like to do some quick sightseeing while I am in town. After looking around the forums and elsewhere, this is what I plan to do. Please let me know what you think. I am open to any suggestions!
Arrive at airport, change a small amount of cash??
Checked bag stays at airport while I take shuttle to hotel overnight
Arrive at hotel and take a 2-3 hour guided tour of the city offered by the hotel, around $30 (anyone have more info about this?)
Go back to room and sleep
Return to airport by around 8:30 AM with carry-ons.
I am a single female traveler, if that makes a difference. Thanks for any help you can give me!
