Dubai - What to do & would you recommend it?

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone - Ok, I am finally set with my itinerary to Africa!! And now I am looking into flights...I am planning to book a United Arab Emirates flight and am considering a 1 day stopover. Is it worth it to stop through just for 1 day?

My flight would land at 8AM on a Friday (August) and it would depart the next day at 3PM...So I would have 1 full day, and maybe a bit in the morning...

A few of my questions:

1) What is there to do in Dubai for a day?
2) Would I have to get a visa in order to visit (even for just a day)?
3) Is it safe?

Any other recommendations or advice on sightseeing, hotels, cultural considerations, safety precautions, etc. would be appreciated. Thanks!


Sorry if this is a duplicate, this was originally posted on the general interest borad initially...
