Dubai city guide and hotels

The glamor and scale of Dubai is something which cannot be exaggerated: the sheer size of its multi-layered malls, the height of its tower blocks glistening in the desert heat, and the brilliance of its chalk-white shore are at once real and surreal. One of the seven Emirates of the UAE, its main city, also called Dubai, teeters at the edge of the Arabian Desert on the Persian Gulf. This a young city in every sense, built over the last few decades from the desert floor and presently catering to a thronging population of carefree expats, serious local businesses, fans of top-tier sports and visitors from every corner of the globe.

Dubai Neighborhoods

Al Bastakiya

One of Dubai's oldest neighborhoods, Al Bastakiya is dotted with arts and crafts shops and independent cafes. The roads narrow and take unexpected turns here, while the market souks are a blaze of color and an amiable riot of bartering.

Al Shindagha

Al Shindagha marks the center of the city, and the prime destination for an impressive cluster of museums. The city is even starting to vie with cosmopolitan cities like Paris and London in the cultural stakes, and places like the fortress-like, 19th century house of former ruler Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum stand in stark contrast to the chic designer Dubai of today.

Dubai Marina

Dubai's strength grew out of its port location and today, the Dubai Marina is still a major focal point, whether you?ve come to trade or just sunbathe. Home to a scenic one-mile walk at Jumeirah Beach Residence, the Marina is also the place to find the next-level deluxe hotels which first gave the city its glamorous sheen.


Things to see

The Burj Khalifa

The Burj Khalifa is known as the no.1 skyscraper in the world for height, and at an almost unimaginable 2,722 feet, it was famously scaled by Tom Cruise in 2011's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Prepare to lose your breath as you survey the view from the top ? and be glad you?re exiting via the elevator.

Dubai Fountain and the Deira Clocktower

Another superlative to add to Dubai's list, the Dubai Fountain is the world's largest of its type and, as music soars to match the graceful jets of water ? reaching 500 feet into the air ? it's hard not to find yourself entranced. The equally magnetic Deira Clocktower is one of Dubai's most visible structures, despite its fairly down-at-heel location on a traffic circle.

Dubai Museum

Dubai's near-magical transformation from flat desert into stunning UAE poster-city makes for a compelling tale, and guests can read all about it at the city and emirate's primary museum.

Jumeirah Mosque

One of the most accessible mosques for non-Muslims, this landmark lights up like a bejeweled crown when the sun has set, and both its sand-colored walls and lofty interiors show off the striking Medieval Fatimid style of this region.


Shopping

Dubai malls

The Dubai Mall and its 1,200 stores is a must-visit if shopping is on your itinerary. However, malls are not just malls in Dubai: when you?ve shopped to your limit, you can hang out with the marine population at Dubai Aquarium or even go skiing at Dubai Mall's main rival, Mall of the Emirates.

Shopping festivals

The Dubai Shopping Festival at the Dubai Mall lasts a month in and around February and is the time to put your bargain-hunting cap on and start rifling the aisles. If you can?t make a winter vacation, Dubai Summer Surprises promises plenty of deals in June.

Dubai souks

Souks can be found throughout Dubai, and many a bargain can be haggled at these open-air marketplaces. Although some of the most popular ones are the Gold and Spice souks, they?re also a feast for curious browsers, where everything from Andalusian crafts to incense-laden rugs is on offer.


Climate

Dubai temperatures peak in the summer, with average highs of 106 degrees Fahrenheit in August. Winter temperatures can be a lot more comfortable with January highs at around 75 degrees. This particular emirate enjoys only limited rainfall, usually in the winter months.
