Dubai: Your Complete Travel Guide to this Land of Excess
If you’ve been dreaming of skiing and suntanning in the same day, drunk on $5k bottles of Cristal, Dubai is your opulent paradise.
Getting To Dubai
The trip from the US to Dubai is typically around fourteen hours if you aren’t stopping anywhere in between. To me, the best flight to take would definitely be Emirates Airlines. Their first class section offers dual and single cabins where you can enjoy relative privacy while you get your beauty sleep. And your sleep is something you wouldn’t want to compromise on before going to Dubai. Dubai is a night city and you will find yourself going to bed as late (or should I say as early?) as 4am.
There probably isn’t any better way to spend your fourteen hours flying than in Emirates — unless, of course, you take a private jet.
The Dubai Airport is one of the largest airports in the world with a beautiful interior, various shopping outlets, bars and restaurants, so your shopping spree can begin from the very moment you step into Dubai. But remember not to go overboard in Duty Free, as there are many more trinkets you’ll want to throw into your shopping cart after you see the Dubai Mall.
