Worth spending a few days here before or after a cruise. It is easy to get around by metro and reasonably priced taxis. The Dubai Mall, by the Burj Khalifa, has a good aquarium, fountains and an ice rink. The gold and spice souks and historic area are interesting as is the Frame. The Dubai Marina Mall is a good place to eat in the evening. Ski Dubai, an indoor ski slope, is inside the Mall of Emirates. Metro stops are some distance from the attractions. Too early for us to visit Expo 2020 or the Bluewaters Island project with its huge new Ain Dubai wheel. Read Less

We flew into Dubai and spent three nights there before the cruise. Dubai is absolutely stunning. Our highlight was going into the desert and riding the sand dunes. The beaches are gorgeous.

A very big city that needs a lot of time to look around properly. We made it to the Dubai Mall and then onto the Palm - all reached on public transport.

No excursions were available for this port, but it is a very interesting city and well worth visiting.

Love this town, better than Disneyland. A visit to “the Frame” is a must. Do a quick town tour and check out the tallest building in the world. Buy a skip the line ticket if you go up. Be sure to see the light and fountain shows ... Read More

We didn't really rate Dubai. Although there was a lot to do, the place is a little contrived to us and felt like another version of Las Vegas without the gambling/boozing. As in Muscat, the place is dripping with money/gold but ... Read More

Very interesing city. Taxis are reasonably priced and we had no problem using English to get around. Took a great tour of the Burj Khalifa (went for the higher priced tour that included the upper floor observation deck - this allowed us to also skip the line, wait in a private lounge and be escorted up in the elevator). Also skiied indoors. Found best prices by booking this online ahead of time. Read Less

Dubai mall has the tallest building in the world, an aquarium, and a water fountain show to music on a regular schedule.

Got to see most things, but by bus, and when we got to the Atlantis hotel we could not get out to see it better, just a quick turn around and back.

Basically coach to tower, then drive to Jumareh beach, then drive to Mall of the emirates. Not great tbh, do the tower solo, too short time at the beach and the mall was pointless

One can spend many hours at the Dubai Mall, the view of the aquarium from the centre is amazing and the shops are varied and good. Easy to navigate with the map available.

Visited before. It improves each time. Take a bright red City Sight-Seeing bus which has several different routes. The rail around town is excellent. If you want Gold or Diamonds, do visit the Gold and Diamond Park (not the old Souk in town). It can be reached by rail from the Dubai Mall and stop at the First Abu Dhabi Bank stop and go down the side street to a building with a café at the front Read Less
