Dubai is noted for its high-end shopping, sophisticated architecture, and vibrant nightlife. The Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, dominates the city’s skyline. The economy is driven by real estate and tourism, and there appears to be an endless supply of inventive and extravagant developments.
In Dubai, there is a delicate mix of old and new, resulting in a plethora of activities. You may spend your mornings on the beach at Jumeirah Public Beach and your afternoons at Ski Dubai shredding powder. Alternatively, you can start your day haggling at the traditional Gold and Spice Souks before heading to the modern Dubai Mall to use your credit card. But first and foremost, familiarise yourself with the city. Take the elevator to the top of the Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest building), where you’ll be treated to breathtaking vistas of the Persian Gulf. Take an abra (water taxi) ride down Dubai Creek if you’re looking for a more conventional perspective.
From November through March is the greatest season to visit Dubai. In terms of weather, Dubai has only two seasons: hot and hotter. Blue skies and perfect beach weather may be found in the city during the winter months. This is, however, prime tourist season, so expect a lot of people on Jumeirah Beach. If you travel during the summer, you can avoid the crowds, but be prepared for triple-digit temperatures and high humidity levels.
Taxis and metros are the greatest ways to get about Dubai. Despite the fact that Dubai’s costs are high across the board, a taxi ride here and there won’t break the bank. They also provide you the option to go at your own leisure without having to deal with traffic. The metro system in Dubai carries passengers to key tourist attractions such as the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai International Airport (DXB). The airport is around 10 miles from Dubai’s downtown area. You can rent a car at the airport as well, but be warned: driving in this region is not for the faint of heart.
