What is your best overall travel tip for Dubai?

Dubai is so much more than the biggest and tallest. See those things for sure but make a little time in your itinerary to connect with the people and the culture. The Al Fahidi District is a great place to see local art. An evening in the desert is a must. If you're up for some adventure, check out Hatta. Enjoy all that Dubai has to offer!

Must see is Burj Khalifa, a trip into the desert, Le Mer and Al Seef. At the evening, it is really nice to have a walk at Dubai marina. If you are interested in beach Clubs, I can recommend Zero Gravity, which has an amazing few and the Food is also very good.

Don't feel like you have to do it all, especially if you have a quick trip. Pick a few key things to do and enjoy it! Sand dunes (combined with photoshoot), beach time, and shopping were our top three.

What is your best overall travel tip for Dubai?

Dubai is a wonderful place and extremely family friendly. We were overwhelmed by the kindness of the staff and their willingness to help with any need, want or desire! Getting to be up close and swim with the dolphins at The Atlantis hotel is an incredible experience. You can just visit the hotel for the day and take advantage of the amazing water park too! Inside the resort The Lost Chambers Aquarium is a real must. Dubai weekends are Friday and Saturdays so visit during the week to avoid the crowds.

Tracy's Travel Tips for Dubai

What is your best overall travel tip for Dubai?

Book everything in advance--some activities can be really popular during high season and you don't want to miss out. The desert safari was the best thing we did. Ski Dubai was also a really fun outing for both the kids and adults (especially for those of us who live in tropical climates); book in advance for a great experience and to avoid the queues. If we'd had more time and energy, we could have filled our days with a million fun things! Dubai has it all.

Suzy's Travel Tips for Dubai

What is your best overall travel tip for Dubai?

Visiting Dubai was fairly simple coming from the US. Everyone speaks English and most all places accept credit cards. The only location I found that didn’t accept credit cards were taxi drivers.

What is your best overall travel tip for Dubai?

Definitely recommend the Coffee Museum near Meena Bazaar, it smells heavenly! For Thai food lovers, Pai Thai at Al-Qasr (Madina Jumeirah) is a must do! A walk around the textile and spice souks is a sureshot way of transporting yourself into a lesser known Dubai, and will be something you'll always remember on your trip to Dubai!

Alexa's Travel Tips for Dubai

What is your best overall travel tip for Dubai?

In Abu Dhabi we enjoyed cappuccinos and ice cream--both covered in 24k gold at the Fountain Cafe at the Emirates Palace hotel--a once in a lifetime experience. In addition, we visited the Grand Mosque which is hands-down one of the most beautiful places on Earth. In Dubai, visiting the Souks Medina and Souks Deira are a must for local goods--both affordable and extravagant. And without question--visit the Dubai desert and take Akemi from Flytographer along for the ride!
