Travel Guide

Dubai is all about glamorous clubs, beach parties, cocktails at sunset and flashy skyscrapers - go further afield and you can find yourself chilling with camels in the desert, offroading across the dunes, winding your way through chaotic and colourful souks, or exploring historical districts. Dubai is dressed to impress.

Things to do in Dubai

  • Barcelona highlights tickDancing fountains at the Burj Khalifa
    You can't go to Dubai without paying a visit to the world's tallest building - at 828m the Burj Khalifa towers above Downtown Dubai. Go shopping before stopping off at the world's tallest performing fountain (from 5.30pm) for an impressive music & light show.
  • Barcelona highlights tickVisit a souq or two
    Souqs are Arabian markets and there's plenty dotted around Dubai. Visit the glittering Gold Souq in Deira, the Bur Dubai Souq, or the Covered Souq, which covers Naif Rd, Al Soor St, 18th St and Al Sabkha Rd.
  • Barcelona highlights tickBurj Al Arab
    This impressive landmark is located in the popular neighbourhood of Jumeirah. If you're feeling flash, reserve a table at the Skyview Bar for sunset drinks, or go for a couple at nearby Bar 360° for a nice view of the Burj instead.
  • Barcelona highlights tickAl Fahidi Historic District
    Escape the hustle and bustle of modern-day Dubai and explore the historical district in Al Fahidi. Soak up the history as you wander the lanes around sandy buildings, before nipping in and out of art galleries, museums and cultural exhibitions.
  • Barcelona highlights tickLadies day/night
    It's no secret that it's easier on the bank account in Dubai when you're female, due to the constant selection of ladies days and nights, which ply the lucky ladies with unlimited/cheaper drinks and food all day/night. Try Barasti, Zero Gravity, or Nikki Beach Club.
  • Barcelona highlights tickBrunch
    Dubai knows how to do brunch - think London's bottomless brunches x 1000! Go for DJ's and party vibes somewhere like The Westin, or chilled out (but still bottomless) like Spanish tapas brunch El Sur.
