Dubai is the largest city in the United Arab Emirates. In city in rapid development, where one wants to be the biggest and best at it all.

You probably know the city best for the tall skyscrapers, large shopping malls and the warm desert climate. And despite the city's reputation for being the number one charter holiday destination for jet setters, it's so much more than that.

Dubai is ideal for all three types of holiday - either individually or in an easy combination:

  • City break with top hotels, shopping, museums and cool restaurants all in one place
  • Beach holiday with fantastic sandy beaches and wild pools
  • Local holiday with delicious Arabic food, local culture and desert experiences

Dubai can be an expensive city, but if you plan your trip carefully and travel at the right time, it does not necessarily require the whole big wallet.

Here is a guide to 15 of the most exciting places, attractions and sights that can be experienced on an extended weekend, plus tips for hotels and restaurants in Dubai.
