With its jaw-dropping skyline, luxury shopping and world-class restaurants, Dubai is a draw for the modern traveller, but the old city centre is also well worth exploring. The labyrinthine souks in old Dubai sell everything from handcrafted gold jewellery and traditional tapestries to oud perfume and sacks of spices – a great place to find a one-of-a-kind souvenir. After a morning spent exploring the best of classic Dubai, explore the epic desert on an excursion with one of the tour companies offering journeys by quad bike, camel or dune buggy. Some desert tours even include belly dancing, moonlit BBQs and hot-air ballooning. The Dubai dining scene, meanwhile, has something for everyone, with options ranging from street vendors selling manakeesh, to refined seafood restaurants with wall-to-wall aquariums and Michelin-starred chefs. If you want to try something different, you can pick up some fresh Kingfish and Pomfret from the Deira Fish & Vegetable Market and try your hand at inventing your own take on a fish curry, or if you’re adventurous, try the stuffed camel, a legendary local speciality.
Downtown Dubai is the place to be if you’re looking to be awed by Dubai’s record-breaking modernism. It’s here that you’ll find the biggest mall in the world (The Dubai Mall), the tallest building in the world (the Burj Khalifa) and the tallest hotel (the JW Marriott Marquis), as well as a great selection of shops and family-friendly attractions. Media City is a hotspot for concerts and dining, while Alserkal Avenue in the Al Quoz neighbourhood is full of vibrant galleries and casual cafes. Jumeirah Beach is a lively district packed with hotels, bars, restaurants and malls.
As befits one of the most modern cities in the world, Dubai has plenty of transport options. You’ll find it easy to travel by taxi, Uber, tram and driverless metro. There are also ferries and water taxis, as well as abras – traditional boats that travel Dubai Creek and the new Dubai canal. If you’re looking to splash out there are Uber choppers, and hiring a car will allow you to explore on your own terms.
