4 Times Square Centre: Times Square has a range of stores including the largest one-stop electronics shop in Dubai, Sharaf DG. Let’s not forget the Chill Out lounge, where a fixed climate of -6°C makes the supplied thick coat and gloves a must. Enjoy the rare feeling of shivering while perching on chairs sculpted from ice and drinking mocktails from – what else? – an ice glass.

5 Burj Al Arab: Just because you’re taking public transport, doesn’t mean you can’t have a bit of seven-star opulence in your life. OK so arriving at the sail-shaped icon in a bus doesn’t have the same glamour as flying onto its helipad, but it’s worth stopping by anyway – at least you can enjoy its neighbouring free open beach.
