A place where you can drive a camel or a Porsche, withdraw gold from the ATM or barter your last dirham for street food might seem like a fantasy land—not to mention just a little contradictory. But it exists, and you can get there on Wotif’s Dubai flights. Put on your bling and board your plane to the best holiday ever.
Dubai has an excellent Metro system, with the Red Line taking you to attractions like the Burj Khalifa, the Palm Islands and the Mall of the Emirates. Flights to Dubai International Airport (DXB) will also be on the Red Line, just 13km from the city centre.
Morning arrivals will be off to a good start with a coffee and sunrise views at Dubai Marina; the energy really starts picking up when the shops open around 10 am. In the afternoon, take your suitcase right to the Mall of the Emirates and see how much more stuff you can fit into it. Not into shopping? You can also ski, see a movie or go to the theatre. If you touch down after sunset, get out and explore the rooftops of the Dubai hotels —that’s where the party’s at.
Want to peek behind the gold curtain? Book Dubai packages near the Bastakia Quarter and explore its narrow streets and lively souks. Pick up cashmere sweaters for Mum and silk slippers for Dad at the Textile Souk. End the day at Al Dhiyafah Road, where the locals go for Pakistani curries, Lebanese lamb and more. It ain’t fancy—it’s just delicious!
You don’t have to drop too many dirhams to book an awesome getaway. Just check out cheap flights to Dubai on Wotif, and we’ll take it from there. You just keep adding to your list of things to do—you’re probably already on page 10.
