Dubai stopover ideas?

Jump to last reply

Our flight arrives from the US in Dubai for a layover around 6:30 PM and leaves at 3:15 PM the next day. We would love to get a birds'-eye view of Dubai either the evening we arrive or the morning before we leave, allowing for reasonable transit time to/from the airport, going through customs/immigration, a good nights' sleep, etc.

We would LOVE to experience Burj Al Arab, but thought it may be out of our price range and also maybe a little too fancy for and the clothes we'll likely be traveling in. Our next thought was that staying in the Dubai International Hotel in the airport would be quite easy... but is it really much more complicated to leave the airport and do you have any specific recommendations on hotels nearby?

Next - any recommendations for how to get a decent tour of the city in the time that we have? I see that Emirates offers a package for a city tour the morning we leave, which drops us off at the hotel by 1PM... not sure if that leaves enough time to get back to the airport, or if they'd just drop us off at the hotel instead...

Any suggestions on how to make the most of our time in Dubai?

Is getting the 96-hour transit visa for such a city tour a big hassle or quite easy?

Many thanks.
