Hopping on a flight to Dubai will take you direct to the most popular destination in, and the glamorous heart of, the United Arab Emirates. This city has become known for its skyscrapers and is where you will find the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. Certainly something to look out for when you're arriving into Dubai on your flight!

Formerly a small trading and fishing village, this modern city has come a very long way over the past years, and today it's known as a tourist destination, duty free shopping haven and business centre. You'll find plenty of up-to-the-minute glamour combined with more than a sprinkling of ancient architecture. Luckily now it's a bustling hub it's much easier to find a great price on a flight to Dubai!

Dubai needn't be just for a long holiday either, as 2017 are set to see this city take a bigger share of the city breaks too, as holidaymakers strive for something away from the norm. Flight times to Dubai are roughly equivalent to New York, which has been seen as a great destination for a long weekend for years!

Direct flights to Dubai

Among some of the many airlines that operate direct flights between the UK and Dubai are British Airways, Emirates and Qantas. It's easy to find a direct route. After all, Dubai is a popular layover spot between a number of Asian destinations like Thailand.

Getting here will take around seven hours from London, and just over that from Edinburgh. If you live in the north of England, you can also get to Dubai from Manchester. Other UK airports offering direct flights are Birmingham and Newcastle.

Flying direct can save you around three hours of travel. That means three more hours to spend in the sprawling metropolis that has attracted travellers for its gorgeous beaches, glass-fronted skyscrapers and breathtaking luxury resorts.

Cheap flights to Dubai

There are direct flights to Dubai available from airports across the UK, including London, Manchester and Glasgow, with many more offering an indirect service. Expect to be in the air for around seven hours if you're on a nonstop flight to Dubai, which gives you plenty of time to plan your days out, assuming you'll be able to get away from the poolside! You could use our guide for inspiration!

To get a good deal on your airline ticket to Dubai it's best to shop around using our flight search tool, although with great weather all year round the prices don't fluctuate all that much. If you can travel on a midweek flight into Dubai then you are likely to get a better price, but the best way to save is to pounce on a discounted fare when you see on! Budget travellers will get the best deal by buying a package holidays with both flight and your Dubai hotel included, often on an all inclusive basis.

Once you arrive into Dubai Airport on your flight you'll need to travel onwards to your hotel. Many hotels offer free taxi transfers so be sure to check on this before you shell out on any other transport. The other options are:

Taxi: These will be easy to locate right outside the terminal and will use the meter. They won't break the bank but use public transport if you're keeping a firm grip of the spending reins.

Car Rental: A great option if you're considering travelling a fair bit in Dubai, but you won't get much use out of a car if you're mostly interested in sunbathing! Expect traffic to be pretty busy most of the time and the driving standard to be less than brilliant!

Metro: With two lines operational so far in Dubai's ambitious metro project, the airport is connected to plenty of onward destinations, so check out the map and see if you could use this new and speedy way of getting to and from the airport!

Bus: A cheaper way to travel by road, you may well have to change at the central bus station to get to your final location so be sure to check your route before you set off!

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is all about living a glamorous life which means it's not a cheap place to visit, so you'll have a hard time finding any bargains on hotels here. Search for the best deal you can find on a four or five star hotel and just jump in wholeheartedly to the glitz and glamour - just go for a shorter trip to save money! Look out for events in 2017 like the Dubai Shopping Festival and Summer Surprises as they can make your holiday more memorable, but be warned as they will also push up prices.

What to See in Dubai

If there's one thing you must do in Dubai then it's shopping - so get practising your haggling! Look out for the traditional marketplaces, called souks, where you will find everything from gold and jewellery to souvenirs, clothes and home furnishings! And you should also visit at least one of the malls, which are built on a larger scale here than anywhere else. Expect theme parks, aquariums and other attractions besides the shops.

Don't overlook visiting some of the older part of the city too. You can get to know the old Dubai at the Dubai Museum, or head out to the beach or the popular Creek! Make a desert trip for a really magical experience, but don't count on any golfers in the family hanging about with you as there are some world class courses here!
