Londoners on flights to Dubai can rekindle a bit of the capital’s spirit by taking a big bus tour once you get to the “one stop city”.
There are two distinct tours depending on the kind of mood people in.
One is the city tour and the other the beach tour and they are conducted during the day and evening.
The day tour takes in the amazing sunshine – pretty much always a guarantee in Dubai – whereas the evening tour is equally dazzling, lit up with luminous lights from the many opulent buildings.
The tour reveals all the key landmarks as well as charting its meteoric rise from a small fishing village to the modern, towering city it is today.
