The world's most extravagant city, home of its tallest building and man-made islands, Dubai needs to be seen to be believed. If you're visiting the United Arab Emirates for the first time, figuring out where to stay can be complicated, as you won't want to miss out on any experiences.
Read our neighbourhood guides to get an idea of where you want to be in the innovative city, and compare the best hotels in Dubai to find the cheapest deals on the dates you're travelling.
You can't miss the Burj Khalifa in the centre of the city, Dubai's colossal skyscraper that towers almost 830 metres (2,722 feet) with 163 floors, but that's not the only remarkable building in downtown Dubai. Containing over 1,200 stores, the Dubai Mall is another record-breaker where you'll also find cinemas, an ice rink and the Dubai Aquarium. For business travellers, Downtown is the location of the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre and old World Trade Centre.
Purpose-built for international visitors, Dubai Marina is where to stay for restaurants and cooling sea breezes. The Marina Walk is a tourist-friendly strip of cafes, shops and performance spaces offering impressive views of the skyscrapers, or you can board a boat tour to see Dubai from the water.
If you'd prefer a beach break in Dubai, Jumeirah has you covered. Stay at a luxury resort with your own private beach or head to the public beach to watch the sunset and mix with other travellers from the world over. If you want to head out on the water, book a waterskiing or windsurfing tour or take the kids to Wild Wadi Waterpark for thrilling waterslides.
More than just an impressive landmark, the Burj Khalifa is even more remarkable from the inside. Head up to the observation deck on the 124th floor or the Sky Lounge on the 148th for incredible views over Dubai and beyond.
The world's largest shopping mall, the Dubai Mall offers much more than shopping. You'll also find more than 150 restaurants, indoor theme parks and waterfalls and more family favourites including state-of-the-art simulators and the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo.

Just 20 minutes from the shimmering streets of 21st century Dubai, the Arabian Desert is like stepping into a different world and time. Explore the dunes by camel, sandboard or quad bike, tuck into a traditional desert barbecue and come away with henna tattoos for an unforgettable experience.

My wife and I had a blast going through the city from Deira to JBL, it was awesome... beautiful beaches, lovely places to see - the Dubai Museum, Mall of the Emirates and the sheer imposing presence of the Burj Khalifa was frigging epic.
