In order to ake best use of a long layover i have a few suggestions to cram in a mini edition of Dubai
Firstly Deira area is nice and close to the airport in case you are looking to spend the night . So choose of one of hotels there. IBIS ood one.is a g
Secondly remember Dubai is safer than most cities in the world, day or night, even for solo women tracvellers.
The plan would thus be :
Take a morning Cab to Dubai creek ..have your breakfast here
Hire another cab and go to Jumeirah beach to see the Burj Al Arab hotel. The sun shines on the hotel for a perfect picture.
Continue to Palm Jumeirah to the Atlantis Hotel. Take a break for 15 minutes for a couple of pics in front of the Hotel.
Then ask the cabbie to take you through Dubai Marina Area and reach Sheikh Jayed Road to return via Shekh Jayed Road to pass next to the Burj Khalifa . ( If you have the evening time off then return here for a nice light and sound session with the water fountain behind the Burj)
This trip would take around 3 hours so planto start by 8 .30 Am or 9 Am to finish this all within 12 noon, in time for a snack and a ride back to the airpot. The taxi charge would be around 70 - 80 USD.
I suggest do not go to Dubai Mall or any other Mall unless you are planning to do some shopping...
In case you have an eneving off: Then a Dinner Cruise on the Dubai Creek would be a nice way of spending time with a dinner as you view Dubai at night.
And if you plan to do some shopping then the City Centre at Deira is good enough without paying double the price at Dubai Mall for all the glitter.
Take care and good luck.
