Hotels in Dubai
Dubai, the financial capital of the United Arab Emirates, sits right on the gorgeous coastline of the Arabian Gulf. Some of the notable Dubai attractions include The Burj Khalifa tower and its picture perfect beaches, including both Jumeirah and Kite beach. For some exploratory tours, there is the Dubai Museum with many traditional artifacts, handicrafts and famous artworks and paintings. Within this desert oasis, featuring many high-rise towers and buildings, there are some noisy and colorful neighborhoods. If shopping is your priority, then visiting the chaotic Souqs of Dubai and the fashionable Dubai Mall is highly recommended. Ferrari World, the world’s largest indoor theme park, is surely the best attraction for kids and adults alike. Even the Jumeirah Beach is a major playground for fun activities.
Although Dubai is a luxury travel destination, there are many budget lodging choices around Bur Dubai and Deira, each featuring many budget hotels. Accommodation choices in Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Marina and Burj Dubai are luxurious and expensive. Dubai’s Pal International Airport (DXB) is the major airport in the city, located just 15 minutes from the city center. Ferry, bus and metro transfer are major public transportation options here.
Hints and tips
Try Al Nassma, the camel milk chocolate, during your Dubai vacation. The city boasts a beautiful, arid climate year-round, ideal for vacationers. Shoppers shouldn't miss the month-long Dubai Shopping Festival, held from January to February every year.
