A Flight to Dubai

Flights to Dubai, one of the top destinations in the Middle East, are now cheaper thanks to ebookers. You can avail air tickets at bargain prices and enjoy the beautiful attractions the global city has to offer. Dubai is also a popular shopping district, so make sure you have saved a lot of money in your pocket to buy whatever pleases you.

Airports in Dubai

One of the busiest airports in the world, the Dubai International Airport is the main airport of Dubai. It is located more than 2 miles southeast from the city centre. The airport houses Dubai's international airlines such as Emirates, FlyDubai and Emirates SkyCargo.

The Sharjah International Airport can be an alternative for flights to Dubai. It is about 18 miles from the city centre and offers fairly basic services, but the airport is being expanded. Its principal carrier is Air Arabia, mostly serving the Middle East and South Asia.

How to Get to the City Centre

Travelling to the city's downtown usually takes 20 minutes from the Dubai International Airport and 30 minutes from the Sharjah International Airport. The most popular way to get to the city is by taking a metered taxi. The minimum fare for taxis is about $3. You can also hire car rental services if you have an international driving license. Most hotels also offer complementary transportation to their guests.

The Best Time to Visit Dubai

Dubai features a hot desert climate and thus has hot weather most time of the year. Between November and April, temperatures drop down to about 20°C from the roasting 30°C, which makes it the best time of the year to visit. Summers in Dubai are also very humid and may not be pleasurable for strolling around the city.

Popular Attractions in Dubai

Dubai features excellent tourist attractions both from the modern and ancient world. The Burj Khalifa, the tallest structure in the world, is one of the city's main attractions and also has a Las Vegas-inspired fountain system. If you want to take a look at Dubai's past, then the Al Ahmadiya School is a great place to visit. Built in 1912, this was the first school of Dubai and now exhibits old reed pens and diplomas. Another great place to visit to learn more of the city's history is the Dubai Museum. It features some old artefacts and an exhibit using the latest technology. Other places to visit for the city's history include the Jumeirah Mosque and Shindagha District. For the beauty of the modern world, the Burj Arab Hotel is one of the places you should see. It proclaims itself as the only 7-star hotel in the world. You should also check Dubai Marina, which features an astonishing skyline with its towering structures. Try to avoid the month of Ramadan, when most establishments are closed during the day.

Enjoy Your Trip to Dubai

Having fun in Dubai isn't that hard with all the old and modern attractions it has to offer. Just make sure to check ebookers when searching for flights to Dubai, so you can save more. Remember that the more you save, the more you can spend.

Things to do in Dubai

For being one of the fastest-growing cities in the world, Dubai manages to combine its Islamic traditions with a cosmopolitan flair that entices luxury travelers. Signs are printed in English and Arabic. Skyscrapers (including the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa) and luxury resorts overlook the narrow lanes and restored buildings of the historic Bastakiya district. At the Dubai Museum inside Al Fahidi Fort, you can see how Dubai transitioned from small coastal village to world-class metropolis. Non-Muslims can learn about the local culture through tours at Jumeirah Mosque. Fragrant spices drift out of every souk (Arabic street markets), and gold jewelry is sold on the street and in high-end shopping malls. Inside the world’s largest shopping mall, the Dubai Mall, shoppers browse 1,200 shops and can visit the world’s largest aquarium.

Dubai When to Go

Expect hot and humid days year-round in Dubai. Although rain is rare, it is more plentiful in winter. Temps range from 73 degrees in January to a broiling 103 in July. Low season is in summer, from July to August. This being the desert, nighttime temperatures cool considerably, but most times of year light clothing is all you need. Many businesses close for the holy month of Ramadan, which falls on a different date each year depending on the Muslim calendar.

The most popular time to travel is November to April, and expect big crowds during high season’s major events, such as the Dubai Rugby Seven in December, when over 120,000 passionate sports fans arrive. A bastion of consumerism, Dubai naturally has its own shopping festival at the end of January, with over two million shoppers flocking for deals. February’s Omega Dubai Desert Classic golf tournament puts $2.5 million at stake and is considered the crown jewel of the European Tour’s three-stop desert swing. The Taste of Dubai is March’s family-friendly event featuring a Kid’s Zone, live music, foodie workshops, and celebrity chefs whipping up delectable dishes. The marquee event, however, is reserved for the ponies, as 50,000 horse enthusiasts arrive in March for the Dubai World Cup, the richest horse race in the world.
