Stayed thge 1st 2 nights in a LUXURY apartment that I had mistakenly booked in 2020 at $170 a night and which was non canceleable. Fortunately due to Coviid they extended the dates until I was able to. Use them. My apartment on 35th floor looked out on the very close Dubai Mall and Burj Kalif, the tallest building in the world. I visited the top and also checked out the Duubai Mall and it's dancing fountains at night. This was in downtown Dubai.
