Where to eat, what to see and do, and where to stay (or not stay) in this pulsating Emirati city

A good concept is always Dubai. Every journey is remarkable because there’s always something fresh and surprising to experience, whether it’s art, shopping, food, or vistas. Here are some reasons why you should go right away (before the hot summer arrives)

Ease of Tour

Dubai needed a battery of RT-PCR tests to be completed prior to arrival, followed by a brief hotel quarantine, until very recently. These requirements have been relaxed as of the end of February 2022. Travelers who have received all recommended vaccinations are no longer subject to pre-boarding screening or hotel quarantine. Dubai no longer requires face masks in outdoor settings, but it still does so in inside settings like malls.

Cultural Enrich

Currently, the Museum of the Future, which opened its doors in February 2022, is the most talked-about destination in Dubai. This striking asymmetric steel and glass torus on Sheikh Zayed Road, designed by architect Shaun Killa, is not to be missed. Its seven floors envision how science and technology will influence humanity over the next 50 years, from biotechnology to space missions.

Cruising mode

With Address Hotels + Resorts’ most recent offering, The Boat By Address, there is a new, opulent way to cruise the Dubai Creek. Go to the Creek Marina Yacht Club and board the 85-foot luxury vessel, which is fully serviced and has three staterooms, a deck for sunbathing, and an onboard chef who will prepare a custom menu. The private cruise offers breathtaking views of Dubai Creek Harbour, the Burj Khalifa, and the city skyline as it travels through the Dubai Canal, past the Ras Al Khor Nature Reserve, and past mangroves.

A viewpoint

There is no glass or other safety barrier between you and the breathtaking 360-degree view of the city. Try the Glass Slide instead if you find it to be too risky. Hold on to the handles tightly as you slide down a translucent glass tube while sitting on a piece of canvas with unobstructed views. The View at The Palm at Palm Tower, a 240-meter-high observation deck that overlooks The Palm Jumeirah sprawled out below in all its splendour, is another magnificent vantage point.

Chic quarters

In Dubai, there have been a lot of brand-new hotels that have opened recently. The first establishment of the bohemian boutique brand in the area. If you’d prefer to stay in the Jumeirah neighbourhood, you can choose between the sizable Raffles The Palm Dubai on the West Crescent of the Palm Jumeirah or the Hyatt Centric Jumeirah Dubai in La Mer, which is near to the Laguna Waterpark and the Al Fahidi historic district.
