Flights to Dubai
Dubai is well known as a stopover destination but it's no surprise why people book flights to Dubai direct as well. It's a fantastic holiday destination with almost guaranteed sunshine, beautiful beaches, excellent cuisine and more events that you can shake a stick at.
From its trendy bars and restaurants to its elegant mosques, Dubai is a treat of a holiday destination. Depending on what you are enjoying Dubai for, you'll want to pick your hotel wisely, although taxis are relatively cheap in the United Arab Emirates and the city's Metro is a great way to get from one area to another as well.
Sunshine - If you're visiting Dubai for some much needed sunshine, Jumeirah Beach is one of best parts to stay. Provided you either book a hotel with a pool or close to the beach, you'll be well equiped for your stay. Be aware that the Summer months in the Middle East can become unbearably hot during the day, and the night for that matter. There are plenty of hotels in the Jumeirah Beach area, ranging from budget to five-star, for something a little different, try one of the luxury hotels on the Palm Jumeirah, such as the Atlantis Dubai.
Shopping - For visitors looking to enjoy some of Dubai's many retail outlets there's a wide choice on offer. Take a wander through the beautiful gold souks to pick up a bargain or explore the magnificent shopping malls, filled with some of the world's best stores, and other fun activities. Check out the impressive Ski Dubai at Mall of the Emirates situated in the Jumeirah end of Dubai.
Tourist attractions - If you're flying to Dubai to enjoy some of the city's many tourist attractions, there are certainly a couple that shouldn't be missed. Be sure to enjoy one (or both) of the city's waterparks. Aquaventure, the Atlantis Hotel's waterpark, offers a range of waterrides, perfect if you're visiting as a family. Take a trip up the Burj Khalifa to see how far Dubai really sprawls, or take a trip out into the desert and try your hand at sandboarding or camel riding.
Culture - Dubai is a relatively young city, considering the grand scale metropolis it has now become. Once a small village in the desert, Dubai has grown incredibly quickly but still retains some of its original aspects. Enjoy a Dhow boat ride through Dubai Creek, or visit one of the city's many mosques. You could even take a trip to Abu Dhabi and enjoy the sights of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
Emirates are often the natural choice for flights to Dubai but other airlines also fly there, some via stopover. British Airways and Virgin Atlantic also fly to Dubai, as do Royal Brunei Airlines and Qantas.
