Dubai gets some intense sun. And that means you’ll be needing a beach. Jumeirah Beach is the best sandy strip in town, and the hub of hotels makes it a great home base for tourists.
We have identified four main areas in Dubai that could potentially be the best place for you to stay in: near Burj Khalifa (Dubai’s Downtown), Jumeirah Beach, Dubai Marina and The Palm Jumeirah.
If you are heading to Dubai for the first time, you may have questions about the laws that Western tourists consider unusual. In short, be respectful. Dress conservatively and make sure your shoulders are covered. Public displays of affection are considered unlawful. Also, the consumption of alcohol in public is illegal, except in specified bars.

It’s best to visit in spring and fall, when the temperatures will be a little more mild.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Burj Khalifa: spectacular & L148/skylounge exceeded all expectations.
The Burj Khalifa was on the list of Dubai must-do activities, but I only booked at the last minute. A recommendation from people met on a desert tour was “do the 148th floor”. That was one of the best pieces of travel advice that I could have been given. It’s not cheap, but the beat-the-queue process coupled with the calm and tranquility of the sky lounge shifted the experience up to more than just 23 floors. I was able to relax, drink coffee, view quietly, take as many photos as I wanted, and get real value from the time at the top. The one tip I would give to others: allow plenty of time on the way in and out. There are truly interesting displays at ground level, and they are easy to be rushed-through.
