Take a holiday in Dubai to experience a mix of excitement, entertainment, and relaxation.
Dubai is known for shopping, theme parks, and wildlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in panoramic vistas at Burj Khalifa, admire the landmark architecture of Emirates Towers, admire the local landmark of The Dubai Fountain, and buy something for everyone on your list at The Dubai Mall.

For photos, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Dubai trip itinerary planning tool.

Cairo, Egypt to Dubai is an approximately 7-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Cairo to Dubai. Traveling from Cairo in August, things will get somewhat warmer in Dubai: highs are around °C and lows about °C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) so you can go by car to Abu Dhabi.
