i’ve been there over christmas a last year and it was amazing, it was really humid and hot despite it being winter though- you should definitely go to the dubai mall (warning it’s a little pricey)and to the dancing fountains, there’s also some amazing theme parks there you should go to

YAS ITS GOOD. I went in the Christmas of 2013-2014 and the weather was like British summer but sunnier obviously! It was great, I went onto the desert safari instead of the cruise ship in Dubai and rode a camel, got henna. Dubai mall is great! Emirate mall is also pretty cool just smaller. In Dubai mall there’s a water fountain dance and and the tallest building in the world!! I went to th beach a couple of times and the water was lukewarm and wonderful to swim in. It’s a great place to be and I think it’s a great idea for you to go there!!!

Winter is the most ideal time to go. I recommend going to visit the Burj Khalifa and going up it to get a view of the city, right next to it is Dubai Mall (shopping, loads of restaurants, activities and you can watch the dancing fountains that happens every 30 mins). Going on a desert safari is amazing in winter. You go dune bashing and you enjoy a bbq in most tours with belly dancing and live entertainment.
Dubai Marina is a lovely place to go to as well.
Other spots: The Frame. JBR, La Mer and City Walk are good, defo check them out.

Well said! I completely forgot about Dubai marina. The sea animals were amazing to look at

There's the dubai miracle gardens too which is only open during winters. apart from the iconic buildings which I'm sure you know of now and the jumeriah beach, there's dinner cruises and speed boat tours which gives you a great view of Atlantis the palm and hotel, jumeriah hotel and burj al Arab.

would definitely recommend going on a tour of the dessert where u can ride the camels/quad bikes. Take a look online and have a look at the group tours they may have . You can get a lot done and experience a lot more of what dubai has to offer

Dubai is a good vacation spot, it's quite unique place. If you are looking for a fantastic and gorgeous place for a vacation, Dubai is a perfect choice. I'd recommend booking all-inclusive packages, it's more profitable https://travelsites.com/blog/all-inc...they-worth-it/

The main thing about Dubai is the beaches and the shopping malls; mainly jumeriah/ umm suqueim beach and Dubai mall is the big one.

Good locations include downtown Dubai, Barsha, mainly near mall of the emirates and Dubai mall. Any other location isn’t very nice tbh

It’s pretty good! There’s lots of choice especially high end brands but it can be quite expensive
