we have a day to explore Dubai on a cruise this Christmas.

We are visiting Dubai for a day on a cruise stop over. We want to cram in as much as possible so any ideas gratefully appreciated as we really don't know where to start!

Look in the Top Questions about Dubai. That should give you some idea of attractions etc. Then make a list of places you'd like to see. There are taxis readily available at the port and they are not expensive.

Thanks for that - always assumed that taxis would be expensive but that makes things much easier.

Traditional Bastakiya, Museum and Souk areas around and across Bur Dubai Creek; Jumeria Beach/Atlantis the Palm, Dubai Mall/Burj Khalifa - possible to squeeze in a day. Depending on spare hours you have and the time of the day, you can do more, or less.

Thanks Vasu8 - I think that sounds fab and would probably tick all the boxes of what we'd want to see. Hopefully we could cram it all in a day - so looking forward to visiting and seeing that wonderful part of the world!
