Dubai Hotels - History, Shopping and Opportunity

Dubai Introduction

With beaches that fringe the warm waters of the Arabian Gulf bathed in year-round sunshine, and architectural marvels that punctuate the skyline and define the destination, Dubai is irresistibly dynamic, and home to some of the world’s most unique, modern attractions. The city offers an abundance of western entertainment, from sumptuous shopping malls and countless bars, and there is fun to be had in traditional local pursuits: haggling for gold and frankincense in the bustling souks and savouring the sunset on the back of a camel.

Hotels in Dubai

You will find an extensive array of luxury hotels in Dubai, but the city also boasts more than its fair share of mid-range and discount hotels to meet any price point. Many of the leading international hotel chains are represented in Dubai, as well as a number of fine independent properties. From sky-high oriental opulence with a 7-star rating to downtown hotels that cater to business travellers, all offer an extensive selection of food and beverage outlets, services and facilities of the highest standards, whether for business, sport or just relaxation.

Where to stay

If a beach holiday with plenty of activities, clean sand and vibrant nightlife is what you’re looking for, Jumeirah Beach is a prime option. Most of the resorts dotting the coastline have private beaches for uninterrupted sunbathing. Downtown Dubai is close to Dubai Mall, which houses numerous attractions dedicated to recreation and entertainment, while the sophisticated, skyscraping and buzzing Dubai Marina is designed to evoke Riviera-style living in a contemporary setting. This attractive place to play and stay in central Dubai is a waterfront development built around a 2-mile-long canal.

Things to see

For a true taste of the Middle East, wander through the alleys of the atmospheric Gold and Spice Souks of old Dubai. Here, you’ll find tables piled high with aromatic and glittering treats, making it a great place to pick up a souvenir. Alternatively, you can hunt for handmade crafts and discover local eateries in the historic Bur Dubai. Downtown Dubai is packed with incredible sites, including an actual dinosaur skeleton inside a shopping mall and the tallest building on the planet, Burj Khalifa. Here, the experience starts when you take the lift up to level 125, from where you can marvel at the view from the 360-degree enclosed observatory. Kids will love the many other attractions found in central Dubai, from the Aquaventure Waterpark, with its adrenaline-pumping waterslides set within Atlantis-themed surroundings, to the 270-degree walk-through tunnel in Dubai Aquarium.

How to get to Dubai

Convenience, speed, and new, modern facilities are just some of the advantages offered at Dubai International Airport. With over 7,000 weekly flights operated by 125 airlines from 260 destinations on every continent, you have a wide range of options to choose from when you travel to Dubai. It’s easy to find a carrier to fit any budget or itinerary. Once in Dubai, get around using the world-class, fully automated, driverless railway system. Most of the metro runs above ground, providing a great view of the landmarks. Alternatively, travel like a sheikh and hire a luxury limousine and personal chauffeur.
