Accommodation Near Dubai Intl. Airport

Dubai is like no city you’ve ever seen before. Rows and rows of gleaming skyscrapers tower over a million brilliant lights in the downtown area. Huge manmade islands with hotels and houses sit in golden sunlight right off the long, straight coastline. From staring in awe at the view from the world’s tallest building to shredding the slopes of a giant indoor ski slope, Dubai has it all! There is so much to do that even its airport has heaps of things to do and see all around it. You can step off the plane, head straight to your Dubai Airport accommodation and be painting the town red in no time!

Make sure you get a window seat on your flight to Dubai because it’s spectacular to see this unbelievable metropolis rising up in the middle of a vast desert. In fact, a tour of the rolling dunes is highly recommended but the city is where the real fun is. The main thing to remember is Dubai has some grand natural and cultural attractions to go along with its unbelievable modern temptations.

Let’s start with something you cannot miss - shopping in Dubai. The coolest option near the airport is the Dubai Shopping Centre. It’s not the glitziest mall here but walking through its gorgeous interior, with archways and pillars reaching up to the tall ceilings and even lampposts, is fun even if you don’t feel like buying anything. If you are ready to spend, the hundreds of shops will not disappoint. Make sure you check out the beautiful fountain and incredible aquarium while there.

You’re also likely to stumble upon Dubai Creek, which is more like a river. The old port that was here used to be the heart of the city. Now it is a beautiful way to get a feel for what Dubai was like back in the day. Old buildings line the banks with the modern city standing proud in the background. Hop on an abra – a small boat – to cross the creek in style. You can also make your way to the rooftop swimming pool at the Hilton Dubai Creek to sip a cool drink while watching the sunset turn the streets into a gold and red wonderland.

If you’re staying near the airport you also won’t be far from Mushrif National Park where you can relax in natural surroundings when the concrete jungle becomes too much. This large park has walking and cycling pathways that wind their way among soft green lawns and tall, healthy trees. Bring your swimsuit along because there are pools for both adults and kids (be aware that swimming shorts for men and one-piece suits for women is considered appropriate in Dubai). There are also playgrounds and barbecue areas, while in the late afternoon a fair ground opens in the evening.

To start exploring beyond the airport area, hop on the Dubai Metro and head south into downtown and you’ll discover exactly why this destination sends people home amazed and wanting to go back. Our Dubai Airport hotels are convenient and smart, so book from our list and check out our flights to Dubai to have the city at your fingertips from the moment you arrive.
