Book cheap Dubai hotels
Dubai is one of seven emirates within the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and is an eclectic mix of old-world tradition and modern technology. Visit this exciting city by using ebookers to find flights and Dubai hotels that are near one of the many must-see attractions.
Landmarks in Dubai
- Burj Khalifa: Dubai has some enormous man-made structures, but the Burj Khalifa towers them all at a full 2,717 feet in height. It has two observation decks, shopping and places to eat inside. It houses some of the best work spaces, private rooms and residences available within the confines of the building. It also has some of the best views of the city and nearby deserts.
- Deira Clock Tower: The tower was built in 1963 as a way to commemorate the first oil exports from the UAE. It is now considered a national treasure that has stood the test of time. Find Dubai hotels near the tower by using ebookers.
- Bastakiya Quarter: With all of the big enhancements and modern buildings being built in Dubai, it is nice to get some contrast by visiting the Bastakiya Quarter. This area is so old and sacred that is has been declared a conservation area. That means cars are not allowed on the streets, so bring along comfortable shoes to explore the narrow pathways and restored buildings.
Things to Do in Dubai
- Desert Safari: Visit the nearby desert on a tour that can be customized to meet individual needs and time constraints. Tours are usually on an all-terrain vehicle, though camels and other modes of transportation are sometimes used. Go on a guided tour during the morning, afternoon or overnight. The overnight tour includes a tent or other sleeping accommodation. Entertainment is usually provided, which generally includes dancing and music.
- Hot Air Balloon Ride: The desert is rarely more picturesque than it is from overhead. Book a hot air balloon ride, and be sure to take a camera to capture the various colours of the desert. Try to get a ride close to sunrise or sunset, when the rays of the sun paint the sand a variety of colours.
- Shopping: There is no shortage of shopping choices in Dubai, with gold, jewellery, materials and handcrafted goods all available from hundreds of vendors. One place of note is the Dubai Mall, which has no less than 1,600 stores to choose from. There are also 160 different places to eat, so bring a healthy appetite. Take pictures of the gigantic indoor aquarium as you shop.
- Skiing: It may seem strange to go skiing in the desert, but the miracle of modern technology has made it happen. Inside the Mall of the Emirates is Ski Dubai, which has 22,500 square inches of indoor skiing, including slopes and lifts. It is recommended for beginner to intermediate skiers and snowboarders. There is also a colony of penguins that call Ski Dubai home. You don't have to call Dubai home, but you can visit by using ebookers to reserve Dubai hotels quickly.

See the Sights from Above
If the Burj Khalifa isn’t high enough, you can get a bird’s-eye view of the remarkable city from a sea plane. A 40-minute tour will fly you past all the main coastal attractions, including the audacious collection of man-made islands arranged into a map of the world, as well as the area around Dubai creek.
Take a ride through the Desert
There can’t be many better ways to escape the ultra modernity of the city than a trip into the vast, empty Arabian Desert. Ride 100-metre dunes in a sturdy 4-wheel drive; then ride them again on a camel.
Most tours will take guests to a remote village for a barbecued dinner and live entertainment—some offer a night in a campsite, allowing for magnificent views of the stars.
Dubai’s giant, air-conditioned shopping centres are like little cities in themselves. Endless rows of stores, haute-cuisine restaurants, and cinemas are expected in malls these days, but an aquarium (Dubai Mall) and an indoor ski centre (Mall of the Emirates) take things to a whole new level.
For an altogether different kind of retail therapy, try and pick out a bargain in the city’s traditional street markets, known as souks. Food lovers will adore the aromas in the Spice Souk, while the Gold Souk offers a dazzling collection of high-end jewellery at unbelievable prices. Haggling is expected and even encouraged—it’s a good idea arm yourself with the daily spot price for gold before you set out.
Spend a Day at the Races
The pinnacle of the emirate’s blossoming horse-racing calendar is undoubtedly March’s Dubai World Cup, the most valuable race meet on the planet. But for something even more exotic, spend an afternoon watching camel races. The normally docile ‘ships of the desert’ can move surprisingly fast when they need to, and winning beasts are often purchased by the sheiks for vast sums of cash. Races usually take place on Thursdays and Fridays from October to April.
Top Dubai attractions
The Al-Fahidi fort, built in the 18th century to defend against foreign aggressors, is the perfect setting for a museum offering a glimpse into the city’s modest existence before a big oil discovery. A collection of finds from archaeological digs—some dating back to 3,000BC—proves that there was life in Dubai long before skyscrapers. A video presentation charts the staggering transformation from desert town to futuristic metropolis.
Outside the fort, the history lesson continues in the pokey alleyways of the Bastakiya district. Here you can see how wind towers kept houses cool before the advent of air conditioning. The government is making a concerted effort to market the district’s cultural credentials, with plenty of restored buildings opening as galleries and museums.
Burj Al Arab
This seven-star hotel (according to its own rating system) is probably the most recognisable landmark in the city. The innovative design—curved like a sail catching a stiff breeze—set the standard for modern development in Dubai. The 780m² gold-plated Royal Suite, complete with private cinema, is probably out of reach for most, but afternoon tea at the ‘Skyview bar’ is a good place to sample the high life.
Officially the tallest building in the world at over 828 metres, the Burj Khalifa is the undisputed centrepiece of Dubai’s impressive skyline. The tower cost an estimated £670million and was named at the last minute after the ruler of Abu Dhabi, who helped save Dubai from bankruptcy during the recent economic crisis. Its 160 stories contain mostly luxury residencies and corporate suites, but the public observation deck on floor 124 offers spectacular panoramic views of the city and beyond.
The city’s largest mosque is also the only one in the city that non-Muslims can enter, albeit with a registered guide. The mosque’s sweeping arcs and proud minarets turn crimson at sunset and then glow golden under soft artificial lights through the night. The organised visits are part of a cultural programme designed to help integrate Dubai’s multifarious population with traditional Arabic culture.
Tip * Booking your Tours, Transfers & Airport Parking before you go will save your money & time and ensure a stress free start to your holiday
The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding (SMCCU)
The SMCCU welcomes visitors to learn about the local culture, religion and beliefs in the Arab world.
Wild Wadi Water Park and Wonderland Amusement Park
The amusement park is fun for the entire family and includes rides, games and a water park.
This restaurant and nightclub built entirely out of ice is a unique way to beat the heat.
The fountains are choreographed to music and shoot water as high as 500 feet into the air.
The tallest building in the world, this structure has an observation deck on the 124th floor. It is also home to the Behold Telescope, which allows visitors to view their surroundings in real time or view archived images.
Take a stroll on the boardwalks along the creek, which separate Deira to the north from Bur Dubai to the south.
Visit the third-largest indoor ski slope in the world. Located inside the Dubai Mall of the Emirates, you can ski and snowboard on 6,000 tons of snow.
Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo
Located in the Dubai Mall, this is one of the world's largest aquariums and is home to 33,000 aquatic animals, including sharks, giant catfish, penguins, otters, and piranhas.
Using life-size dioramas, the museum depicts daily life in Dubai before the oil strikes.
Here, in one of the oldest areas in Dubai, you can see historic mosques and some ancient architecture.
