This is a non-shopping trip to try new Restaurants and Cafes. We traveled on Friday morning and returned Saturday night by FlyDubai
We rent a car from Dollar through FlyDubai website, and everything went smooth and perfect.
We stayed at Manzil Downtown Dubai, the entire experience was beautiful, beginning from the reception to the check-out. Our room on the fifth floor with beautiful view of Burj Khalifa Tower

We visited the Miracel Garden, and unfortunately we were late we didn’t have the chance to see the butterflies, they close at 6pm. And since it was Friday it was very crowded, I will not recommend to go on weekends or afternoon. Try to go early morning, I think they open 9am. But it was amazingly beautiful.
Location: Al Barsha South 3, Barsha / Dubailand Area
One of the new places that we visited for the first time is Al Bastakiya Old Town, which is located in Al Fahidi, Oud Metha, Dubai. Make sure you go at night, not everything open in the morning.
Restaurant that we visited:
Make sure you reserve for your visit, otherwise you will not be seated. The food was amazingly tasty and it’s set menu, the only thing that you will be ordering is the drinks, which is not included in the set menu (Not Acceptable). They served us Large Water without asking, and then they charged us for it.
They start serving the food once you requested, and start with cold mezze , Hot mezze, Grilled, then end it with dessert. Make sure you are very hungry, and it’s better to go in large group
We payed 768.999 AED for two
