The 10 Attractions You Must See in Dubai
Dubai has transformed itself in recent years with a series of creative, ambitious construction projects that have catapulted this city to the top of every bucket list. Here are a few attractions you won't want to miss when you visit this desert hotspot.
6. Jumeirah Beach
Dubai gets some intense sun. And that means you'll be needing a beach. Jumeirah Beach is the best sandy strip in town, and the hub of hotels makes it a great homebase for tourists.
Planning Your Visit
How many days should you spend in Dubai?
For non-architects, three to four days will be plenty of time to see everything you need to see. Be very mindful of when you choose to visit. The weather gets very hot between May and September, and uncomfortable if you aren't used to the desert heat.
Where should you stay in Dubai?
You will have your choice of impressive hotel rooms in this city. For the more budget-conscious travelers, know that you won't have to miss out just because you can't afford to stay at the fancier places! Plan ahead for experiences at Dubai's luxury hotels. Make dinner reservations at Burj Al-Arab, or stop by for an afternoon cocktail (and view of the Burj Khalifa) at The Address Downtown Dubai.
Be conscious of cultural differences
If you are heading to Dubai for the first time, you may have questions about the laws that Western tourists consider unusual. In short, be respectful. Dress conservatively and make sure your shoulders are covered. Public displays of affection are considered unlawful. Also, the consumption of alcohol in public is illegal, except in specified bars.

What people are saying about Dubai
First time that we used GetYourGuide and we had a great time with Nabeel at the desert tour. Pick up was very well coordinated prior to the tour! It was super fun to ride the dunes and he had a lot of interesting facts about Dubai. Also he took great pictures. Would highly recommend // Wie haben zum ersten Mal über GetYourGuide gebucht und wir können die Wüstentour mit Nabeel sehr empfehlen. Alles super organisiert gewesen, hab gar keine Probleme. Alles super ungezwungen, wenn man will, konnte man noch Buggies bzw Quads vor Ort im Camp mieten. Ansonsten war ein toller kleiner Kamelritt inklusive und eine (lange) Fahrt über die Dünen. Er hat sich auch sehr viel Zeit für Fotos genommen.
i had a tour today with my little brother and my boyfriend I really didn't expect that much, it was so fun and ahmed was so nice and made sure that we didn't miss anything and that we didn't get bored, he also looked after my little brother so well. our statements are totally open! Many thanks to ahmed for everything, we can only recommend it!
Despite Ramadan and COVID 19, the tour with our guide, Yasir, was really nice . Everything was as described. Please note, to tip as much as you can even though everything is included. Some stuff are still not for free, as makeover / Arabic dress / scarf. All in all, a good and well structured tour with lot of excreting activities.
חיפשנו סיור עם מדריך מקומי,שיראה לנו את החלק העתיק של העיר ויעשיר עבורנו את החוויה. מוחמד ענה על כל הציפיות, הוא לא הכביד בסיפורי העבר אלא נתן סקירה תמציתית ושיתף אותנו בפרטי מחיי היום יום. טעמנו מאכלים, בקרנו בשוק התבלינים וחצינו את הנהר. היה מעולה!!!! מומלץ ביותר
Our guide Mohammed was amazing. Very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. Pick up was exact and timely. He was very fun as a driver as well. The itinerary was flexible and customizable. Would choose this company again for future trips.
