To Stop over or Not

We are considering a brief stop over in July we would only really get 24 hours there and would involve too extreeeemely early mornings - is it worth it?

If so I would be interested in any afternoon tours that could be recommended to allow us to see some of the major new & old sights.

Is Duabi worth 24 hours - yes it is and then some.

Is it worth 2 early mornings - only you can answer that and depends on how much you want to see Dubai.

Is it/will it be your only chance to see it - then that may make it more worth it, even with the early mornings.

There are many tours to see the old and new sights - this company offers several


Or there is the Big Bus tour of Dubai


which gives you the chance to hop on and off where you like.

If you only have 24 hours then stay somewhere central to ensure you get the best of Dubai

Do stay over ...its a brilliant place ...make see you see the creek and the fountains , the amazing sky line is everywhere

we did the big bus tour , but as you are time restricted , you wont have time to hop on and off . But taxi are very cheap so do your research ...plenty of info on here , and set your own objectives . If you have no time to go up the Kalifa tower then have a drink at one of the high hotel bars to get the view .

Start planning another holiday tho as i am betting having wet your lips , the taste of Dubai , will have you desperate to go back !!! if you can , extend your stop over , even by one day !!

We leave next week and also only have 24 hours... After research after research we are doing the Big Bus - 200 AED (60 USD) for 24 hour ticket, 21 stops.

Catches all the major sites.
