I'm still determined to stay in Dubai and will do whatever it takes to try and secure employment right up until the day I have to get on the plane, but whilst there is even a slight possibility I may have to go home in June I fully intend to make the most of the time I have left to explore Dubai.
With loads to see and do in Dubai, my short time frame and dwindling funds I have created the following top 10 list of things I want to do in Dubai before I go home.
Visitors to Dubai can be forgiven for thinking that there is nothing more to the country than sunbathing and shopping. Before I leave I want to experience the local culture at least once by visiting Old Dubai, Deira, Dubai Creek, Bastakiya Quarter and the Sheikh Mohamed Centre for Cultural Understanding.
2. Ride the Big Bus Tour
Dubai is huge and can be a logistical nightmare to navigate. The Big Bus Tour is the perfect way to access all of Dubai's interesting landmarks and attractions. Prices start from 240 AED.
3. Cruise the Dubai Creek on a Dhow Boat
Dhow boats have been a part of Dubai culture for thousands of years. Dhow dinner and sightseeing cruises is a great way to relax and take in some of Dubai sights. Check out Time Out Dubai's list of the best dhow cruises available.
4. Drinks at 360
360 is an award wining entertainment venue with spectacular panoramic views of Dubai's coastline and the Burj Al Arab.
5. Chill at Dubai Creek Park
Situated in the heart of Dubai on the banks of the Creek, Dubai Creek Park is a great place to relax and unwind. Open every day (Please note: Wednesdays is ladies only). 5AED entrance fee.
6. Cool off at Wild Wadi Water Park
With temperatures soaring what better way to cool off than at an adventure waterpark. Release your inner child from as little as 215 AED per person.
7. Camping in the desert
Desert camping is a popular Dubai activity so why not escape city living and spend a night under the stars. Whether you decide to go it alone or book through an organised tour company don't forget to watch out for scorpions, spiders and other nasty creepy crawlies. Check out these 10 top UAE camping spots.
8. Drinks at the highest restaurant in the world -At.mosphere, Burj Khalifa
No visit to Dubai would be complete without a visit to the worlds highest restaurant. Experience picture perfect views in a relaxed setting.
9. Abra tour around Madinat Jumeirah
Take in the sights in and around the Madinat Jumeirah on a traditional Middle Eastern Abra boat. Perfect for up close photos of the Burj Al Arab. Costs 75AED per adult.
10. Visit the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve
