Overlooking the deep blue waters of the Persian Gulf, Dubai is a city where past, present, and future collide. Ultramodern, glass-and-steel towers stand alongside historic Arabic Malqaf (or windcatcher) buildings. Dubai denizens pull up to traditional souks in Italian supercars. Executives at multinational corporations relax at desert getaways, with nothing more than the night sky, a good meal, and maybe a camel ride.
But Dubai is more than just a dynamic metropolis. It’s also a key hub for Emirates flights. Because it’s an easy stopover, it’s perfect for a refreshing appetiser to a longer journey or a final taste of adventure before heading home.
Whatever your reason for a stopover, Dubai has plenty to offer seasoned travellers and wide-eyed newcomers alike.
