Dubai’s official motto isn’t “go big or go home”, but it should be. This bustling emirate is constantly trying to outdo itself and pretty much all the other cities in the world.
Man-made islands built to look like palm fronds? You’d better believe it!
Whether you love shopping, eating or beaching, you can do it to the extreme in Dubai.
Your heart’s every desire can be granted in in Dubai. Okay, maybe not your dream of riding a real-life dinosaur, but you can do some camel racing instead. A Dubai car rental is a great idea to get you to and from the racing venue, and unlike racing camels, your car won’t spit on you.
It can also bring you to downtown Dubai where you can crane your head up, up and up at the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. It’s worth the price to go up to the observation deck on the 124th floor. The building also houses several Dubai hotels, so you can actually sleep on top of the world, so to speak!
Practically next door is the Dubai Mall. This might very well be the place where you finally shop till you drop; with 1200 stores and restaurants in counting, it’ll be a close call to see whether your legs give out before your credit card!
If the Dubai Mall only whets your power shopping appetites, load your bags in your Dubai car hire and make your way to Old Dubai. Imagine yourself as a caravan trader of old as you wander through busy, chattering souks (outdoor markets) and haggle for glittering treasures.
If you need to take a bit of a breather from Dubai, get behind the wheel with your car hire in Dubai and head 159km south to spend day or a weekend in neighbouring Abu Dhabi. Think of Abu Dhabi as Dubai’s slightly older, more mature older brother who still knows how to party.
Speaking of partying, you can keep your nights going into the wee hours of dawn when you use Wotif to save big on Dubai packages.
