I'd check out burj khalifa and the Fountains outside of it, mall of Emirates, ski Dubai in side of it, dubai mall, aquarium in dubai mall, burj al arab, etc etc.

Mistake not to leave airport.

UAE was undoubtedly one of the coolest places we've had the opportunity to visit.
Nee, nee, TR?

Hey I booked emirates dubai maldives and return on cathay pacific through china - gang in March - let me know how your trip goes - opened citi hilton staying at conrad
1) How did you book the Conrad- aside from the two free weekend nights?
2) Were you able to get first on cathay or business?

1 - I booked the conrad using new city hilton with 2 free nights and then transferred amex points for the other 3 nights - upgraded to water villa for 3 nights and beach for 2 nights
2 - i used aa to book cathay and they don't let you reserve first so i had to stay with business

$735 for the conrad seems like a very good deal but why pay when you can get for free ?

Probably. Check closer in and call AA to upgrade you to first for some more miles.

So how much amex did you use per night? And how did you get it for free?

In DXB ?

when walking out of arrivals building theres a room to the left where you can pay per bag to keep your luggage.
I left everything but my mac air which i carried around with me for the day

a friend of mine rented a car there as well. i never did that but its an option
