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
A chance to look round one of the best Hotel in Dubai. The hotel oozes class from walking in and made our 5 star look like a 3 star. Went for the afternoon tea with 2 signature cocktails which my wife had and I purchased a couple of beers, Happy hour was on at our 3.30 tea. So much to see we stayed till 6. The food was lovely and surprisingly filled us.
As Rashid told us during all the trip “only memories stay”. And our memory of him will stay in our mind for ever. Rashid is a really great guide, he got a kind and generous energy and we loved to listen his advice and stories about Dubaï. The activities was really nice, fun and authentic ! Thank u and see u soon.
It was a wonderful experience. The guide Nabeel was very happy to show us the desert and drove us very tough. The camel ride was a bit too short. The show and the food was good. All in all a nice afternoon.
Generally not impressed by touristic tours, I have been by this one. From service to activities and food, all was good and spotless. Recommended !
Brilliant day out, quad biking was the highlight of the day but everything was really well organised. Qamar our driver was brilliant.
