Dubai is one of the most luxurious cities that offers a plethora of activities, from amazing hotels, fantastic entertainment and shopping centers, beautiful sandy beaches and world-class restaurants.

Trips to such big world cities are the most beautiful if you stay there for a while and manage to visit all the sights, but Dubai can also be great as a stopover destination or a place where you will spend a short vacation.

Good organization is crucial for a short stay, which can also be both very efficient and memorable. We have several suggestions for you on how to spend a shorter or longer vacation in Dubai, which will certainly be unique.

A day in Dubai

A day in Dubai can be a day to remember forever. You can start your morning with a ride on a water taxi known as "abra" that will take you to see the bustling Dubai Creek as well as Dubai's newest waterfront - Al Seef, which pays homage to the Emirati heritage.

There, you can take a break with a sip of local coffee or traditional spiced tea, while enjoying a postcard-worthy view.
