    Up to the Top, Burj Khalifa, a magical experience, gorgeous views from the 124th floor.
    The Dubai Fountains, they dance to classical music, absolutely awesome.
    Love the Emirates Towers Hotel, an icon, stroll the Emirates Boulevard, we had some lunch in the lobby with outstanding service.
    Make a trip to Ajman too, the Kempinski hotel is by the beach, a gorgeous setting this hotel has not one, but two fantastic spa's.
    Eat a steak at Ruth Chris steakhouse @ the Monarch hotel, now the H Hotel, a LHW member, we had a gorgeous stay here, breakfast is an art.
    Visit Sharjah, for the gorgeous beachfront, views over the Sharjah and Dubai skylines, fabulous mosque architecture and some alcohol-free Cuba Libre at the Radisson Blu Resort where the F&B manager served us.
    We visited also the Dubai Mall, the world's largest, awesome and yes, we had luch at the Armani Caffe.
    Plus a visit when in Ajman, the great Ajman museum, fabulous historic arab architecture and shows life as it once was in this emirate.
    Visit the Raffles hotel, the pyramid of Dubai, awesome and here even the security guard was very friendly, he moved away from his usual position so we could take some photos in the lobby.

    Safe and Happy Travels to Dubai!:)

    The dancing fountains are definitely worth a visit. Also, taking a boat out to sightsee (swimming in the warm water).
    Instead of going to the 124th floor of Burj Khalifa, I would recommend going to the bar on the 123rd. No entrance fee, just a cover charge. Yes, drinks are expensive but the service was good and you don't pay much more than the entry to floor 124, but get food or drinks included. I also got a birthday dessert from the bar.
