We know it can feel a little overwhelming when you first set foot in Dubai. How exactly do you explore this ultra-modern metropolis? Where do you start? We love Dubai and we want to ensure that you feel the same, which is why we decided to create this helpful guide to ease you on your way. 


Rather than present you with a long list of recommendations that would take you the duration of your holiday to read, our Dubai-based team of in-the-know writers has cherry-picked the city’s best bits, leaving you free to simply enjoy it. From the best restaurants with views to write home about to the boutiques brimming with homegrown designs, the coolest clubs and the tours to take to see the city’s ample attractions. All you need to do is enjoy the holiday of a lifetime..

DXB City Expert

If you’d like to pick up the print edition of DXB City Expert when you arrive in the city, there are multiple ways to do so. Copies are distributed by The Emirates Group’s Dubai-based holiday companies, including bus service City Sightseeing Dubai, via their ticket desks at all of the city’s major shopping malls; Arabian Adventures, via their ticket desks within the city’s five-star hotels; and Marhaba, handed out to visitors on arrival who have booked Marhaba’s airport meet and greet service.

For ease of reference, we can also WhatsApp sections of the magazine direct to your phone. Simply tell us if you’d like to know about the food, the activities, the shops or the nightlife, enter your phone number and we’ll do the rest.
