Planning Your Visit
How many days should you spend in Dubai?
For non-architects, three to four days will be plenty of time to see everything you need to see. Be very mindful of when you choose to visit. The weather gets very hot between May and September, and uncomfortable if you aren't used to the desert heat.
Where should you stay in Dubai?
You will have your choice of impressive hotel rooms in this city. For the more budget-conscious travelers, know that you won't have to miss out just because you can't afford to stay at the fancier places! Plan ahead for experiences at Dubai's luxury hotels. Make dinner reservations at Burj Al-Arab, or stop by for an afternoon cocktail (and view of the Burj Khalifa) at The Address Downtown Dubai.
Be conscious of cultural differences
If you are heading to Dubai for the first time, you may have questions about the laws that Western tourists consider unusual. In short, be respectful. Dress conservatively and make sure your shoulders are covered. Public displays of affection are considered unlawful. Also, the consumption of alcohol in public is illegal, except in specified bars.

What people are saying about Dubai
This tour has been the most magic and breath-taking ever! Our tour guide did a nice job at picking us on time, explaining us about the local culture and gave us a splendid ride over the dunes!! Food was delicious and the dancing performance was awesome, especially the one with fire. My gratitudes to our tour guide and all the people who did a good job preparing it all for us! It reminds me of why traveling to other countries is one of the best thing to do in life!!!! Pepe
Second activity booked after dessert safari with the same agent . Accurate pick up time . Our guide , Haseeb, gave us plenty of information for the visiting sites and also for the history of the UAE. Plenty of time at the Mosque and the presidential palace . Some more time probably needed at the emirates palace . Restaurant visited ,with buffet provided , of average rating. Highly suggested agency and guide !
It was really fun and the driver was really nice and knowledgeable about Dubai as well as driving through the desert
Great show, captivating. Parking is possible just opposite to the entrance.
A nice trip for a child too. A good and competent guide.
