Flights to Dubai

Try and get a seat by the window for your flights to Dubai. As the plane descends, you'll want to see the sheer scale of the city's dramatic sprawl along the coastline, which is just as impressive as its skyline. In little more than 40 years, this city has transformed itself from a tiny settlement to a glittering metropolis and world-class destination.

While Dubai's startling feats of engineering, such as the Burj Khalifa, the Palm islands, Burj Al Arab, and the Dubai Mall, are the jewels in its crown, the city’s multifaceted appeal extends beyond its architecture. Some people are attracted to the buzz of the place; it has the frenetic pace and energy of a global business city and tourism hub. However, you might prefer the tranquility of its desert retreats, golf courses, calm seas, and beaches.

Beyond clusters of gleaming five-star hotels, with their luxury suites and infinity pools, there's a historic side to the city too. Visit Al Fahidi Historical District (formerly known as Bastakiya) to see traditional Arabic architecture, then tour the Heritage and Diving Villages of Shindagha.

Visiting Dubai is largely about consumption; one of the most popular activities here is shopping. As well as record-breaking malls packed with designer names, there are traditional souks and vibrant markets. And while Michelin-starred celebrity chefs have embraced Dubai’s high-end culinary scene, there are still scores of independent restaurants with authentic flavors to explore.

It all adds up to a city of contrasts, and there's nowhere better to witness Dubai's diversity than the Dubai Creek. Here, traditional abras cross the waters, and dhows unload their cargo beneath shimmering skyscrapers. Nothing stays the same for long though, and there are always new and ambitious projects afoot, like the upcoming Creek Harbour development and the indoor city, Mall of the World.

The latter will have air-conditioned shopping streets, a theme park, and a healthcare district. It almost sounds too good to be true, but given Dubai's already incredible rise, you wouldn't want to bet against it.

What to do in Dubai

Go on a desert safari

You could be forgiven for thinking nothing but sand and the occasional cactus lie beyond the shadows of the city. But with Arabian Adventures tours, visitors can get up close to a wealth of wildlife, including Arabian oryx and gazelles. The Nature Trails trip is just one of many operated by the company.

Go on a street food tour

Arva Ahmed’s Frying Pan Adventures Tours will show you the other side of Dubai’s food scene, away from the five-star hotels. There’s a menu of food trails to follow, from the Middle East Food Pilgrimage to the Little India on a Plate experience. Go with an empty stomach.

Shop at the Ripe Food and Craft Market

Held in leafy Zabeel Park every Friday from 9am–3pm (during the cooler months), the Ripe Food and Craft Market offers everything from arts and crafts to organic fruit and vegetables. It also runs at Al Barsha Pond Park on Saturday nights.

Where to eat in Dubai

Bubbalicious (Brunch)

Friday brunch is an event in Dubai, and this energetic affair at the Westin Mina Seyahi is one of the liveliest. Spread across three restaurants—Blue Orange, Hunters Room & Grill, and Spice Emporium—and with live cooking stations, it offers everything from Asian noodle dishes and Arabian mezze to pasta and Yorkshire puddings.

Yuan (Chinese)

This classy Chinese restaurant serves Szechuan cuisine in the heart of one of the most famous hotels in the world. The main room is open and showy – definitely a place to be seen – with tall throne-like chairs and stunningly ornate ceiling sculptures. Don’t miss the deep-fried tiger prawns.

Salt (Burgers)

Salt founded Dubai’s food truck scene. Serving sumptuous wagyu sliders out the back of their retro Airstream trailer, the team initially used Instagram to inform hungry punters an hour in advance where they would be selling a limited number of burgers. But success has seen them take up permanent residence on Kite Beach.

Places to stay in Dubai

Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa

Expect white sandy beaches, a huge infinity pool and three lagoon pools, superb restaurants, and the only over-water villas in the UAE.
