Extend your stopover in Dubai and make the most of this unique city with our top reasons to love the fashionable metropolis in the East.

Dubai is so much more than a stopover; spend a few nights here and you'll love the Golden City! 

Glamour

Famed for its decadent hotels and upper class clientele, Dubai is a playground for the rich and famous.

Join in the fun as you sit under twinkling lights to watch the world famous choreographed fountain display, set over the 30-acre Burj Khalifa Lake at the centre of the Downtown Dubai, you'll also be able to take in the view of the huge building itself.

Souks

An evening spent navigating your way through the vibrant marketplace of Dubai’s souks is a must-do on a trip to this wealthy and colourful city. Try bartering for some exotic spices at the Spice Souk, or gaze in amazement at the lavish displays of jewellery in the Gold Souk - perhaps even treat yourself to something? You’re on holiday after all.

Deserts

Lying right within the Arabian Desert, Dubai is a city placed like no other. Whilst here, make sure you take advantage of the epic scenery the desert has to offer, by heading off the beaten track and out into the wilderness.

Try a desert safari or a spot of sandboarding, before stargazing from outside your private desert villa at Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa.

Weather

With blue skies 330 days of the year - on average – Dubai is a pretty safe bet for some sun. Even in winter temperatures rarely drop below 20 degrees, and at their hottest can reach the high 30’s, so be sure to pack your sun cream.

Architecture

From the Burj Al Arab to the Palm Jumeirah Island, Dubai is full of iconic, extravagant architecture. Why not make your trip extra special and stay in one of the more talked about resorts?

For one the kids will appreciate as much as the parents - the water park is incredible - try Atlantis, The Palm.

Variety

Sunbathe on the beach on Monday, sand board in the desert on Tuesday and ski at Ski Dubai’s indoor ski resort on Wednesday. Anything is possible here in Dubai!

Spas

With its plethora of luxury hotels, it comes as no surprise that Dubai also offers some of the world’s best spa facilities.

The spa at The Palace at One & Only Royal Mirage is home to a traditional Oriental Hammam, with heated marble massage tables, several Jacuzzis and steam rooms, plus all of the treatments you can think of. A day spent here is the epitome of pure relaxation.

Nightlife

When the sun goes down in Dubai, the city lights up. At night it’s a lively city, full of glitzy bars and top-class clubs, and most with views to match the incredible cocktail lists. From Ibiza style beach bars, to classy cocktail joints, and rooftops boasting superstar DJs, there’s something to suit every taste.

Try TimeOut Dubai’s Bar of the Year 2016, Asia Asia, and keep an eye out for regular ladies nights if you’re away on a trip with the girls.
