Tips For The Best Dubai Stopover

If you are looking at flights via Dubai but are unsure about connection times, we recommend making it a full day's stopover, getting out of the airport, and exploring Dubai.

This post will discuss several Dubai layover and stopover options available to travelers.

Staying at the airport in Dubai

We recommend staying at DXB airport if your trip is less than 5 hours. This will allow you to avoid the hassle of checking in and out of the airport, which can be time-consuming. You also don't want to risk missing your flight because you were stuck at immigration!

DXB has some of the best facilities in the world. It provides free, fast-speed internet to all travelers. You can search for the best casino games and spend your time earning some bonuses using your mobile phone. Moreover, lists some more bonus options on its website that can be used to further enhance the time spent while waiting.

Dubai Stop-over Options

While it is not possible to experience a free stopover city tour in Dubai, it is possible to enjoy paid tour options that are available from various providers. Moreover, Big Bus Tours are excellent if you wish to see a lot of the city in a short time, although not all stops may be able to be experienced.

The bus does not leave directly from the airport, but you can get to Deira City Center via the Red Line Metro departing from Terminal 1/3 DXB.

If you are looking for an overnight desert safari, you will find a variety of tours departing in the evening. Fortunately, many tour companies specialize in morning desert excursions to see the sunrise—a perfect way to fill a day if you arrive late at night and are at a loss for what to do.

Self-guided Dubai Stopover Tours

Dubai offers a variety of options for visitors, including the Metro and taxis or private cars. Visitors can also use Uber or Careem services on their self-guided tours. Some popular places to stop, look and click in Dubai include:

  • Burj Al Arab is a 7-star beachfront hotel on sunset beach Jumeirah in Dubai. It is an icon of the city and has been featured in countless movies, TV shows, and music videos.
  • Burj Khalifa - To visit the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, you should check out ticketing options and find places to eat. The building is reachable by taking the Red Line Metro from Terminal 3 of DXB.
  • Dubai Mall - It is one of the world's largest shopping malls and offers various restaurants and family entertainment options. It also features an aquarium, ice rink, and Kidzania – an interactive children's play area. At night, guests can enjoy a free fountain and light show that is set to music in front of the Burj Khalifa.
  • The Walk & The Beach is an emerging district in Dubai JBR, with plenty of cafes, street art and activities.

Final Thoughts

Dubai is a smart option for a stopover on the way to other destinations, and with good reason. It's a convenient hub, with flights regularly departing from around the world. Plus, it makes an excellent layover location. If you have time to add Dubai to your route, we highly recommend making it a full day's stay and exploring this incredible city.
