Befitting Dubai's status as one of the world’s richest places, gold is perhaps one of the best local purchases. Hi-tech goods are also well worth looking at. Dubai is a shopper’s paradise with souks and malls everywhere – if you come back from Dubai with spending money then you've done something wrong.
Cigars, rum and salsa CD's are popular take-aways, or if you have a little spare luggage allowance then why not take home a vibrant painting from the region or even a Dominican Republic speciality – a rocking chair!
Top Resorts in Dubai
Dubai is one large city and within it there are a number of districts, but all tend to blend seamlessly with one another.
Taxis are plentiful and cheap so it is easy to get around. Dubai is one of those places where we would suggest that you choose which hotel you want to stay in, rather than which area - that said, with the vast majority of hotels rating 3* and upwards, most can provide the perfect location for any couple after a luxurious Dubai honeymoon or overseas wedding.
