There is a wealth of information on the right hand side of this page under the Top Questions about Dubai title.

Dubai has a lot of great shopping so you can always browse the many, many malls. If you are into architecture, the design of the buildings and malls are quite impressive as well. You also have the fountain show (at sunset) near the Mall of the Emirates, SkiDubai, or you could do a desert safari (we did ours in half a day)

Dubai always has festivals or shows going on so definitely check that out as well. Enjoy

Maps can be found online via Google.

Cool places to see are the Burj Khalifa and fountains, the Dubai Mall and Ski Dubai at the Mall of the Emirates. Both sites are accessible via the Dubai Metro or by Dubai Taxi.

Also consider old Dubai, the souqs on both sides of Dubai Creek and definitely an abra ride.

Dubai Museum is supposedly the oldest building in Dubai, so surely a "special" one. I also second the souks and abra ride. But would add Marina Walk and The Walk to the list. And make sure you ride a metro, the best way to see the city (90 % high above ground). But do check the top questions section.
