Should You Rent a Car at Dubai Airport?

The best car hire in Dubai Airport depends on why you want the car in the first place.

If your journey involves more passengers and requires a bit more comfort and more engine power then an SUV, MPV or people carrier would be your best choice.

Things to Do and See in Dubai 

The Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo  - contains the largest collection of sand tiger sharks anywhere in the world, and all the sea life can be seen up close walking through the 48-metre glass-walled tunnel. Alternatively, glass-bottomed boat trips are available.

The Burj Khalifa - is the world's tallest building, 828 metres high above Dubai and offers one of the most spectacular views anywhere.

Dubai Marina - contains an affluent residential neighbourhood, a leisure complex with al fresco dining and sandy stretches on which you can relax. Smart western cafes and pop-up international craft markets line the waterside promenades, while Dubai Marina Mall is packed with international luxury fashion brands. Yachts belonging to millionaires, cruise leisurely through the large man-made marina, with envious onlookers spying on what the other half get up to.

The Dubai Creek- offers a trip into the ancient Arabic culture. One of the oldest neighbourhoods in Dubai and the main commercial district along Dubai Creek, Deira is a place where tradition and necessity meet. Travelling by boat on an Abra or a Dhow and passing the Bastakia Quarter and the Gold Market (souk), this is a part of old Dubai not to be missed. Frustrated drivers search endlessly for somewhere to park, they must negotiate hectic traffic jams and swarms of jaywalking merchants who ferry their goods between dhows on the creek side of the road and the souqs on the other. So maybe not the best place to travel with your Dubai Airport hired car.

Shopping in Dubai - no holiday in Dubai would be complete without a bit of shopping. With some of the best shopping malls on the planet like the Dubai Mall, or the Mall of the Emirates Dubai has it all.

The Palm Islands - Palm Islands are three artificial man-made islands, Palm Jumeirah, Deira Island and Palm Jebel Ali, on the coast of Dubai. The islands house many apartments and hotels including the Atlantis, located on the Palm Jumeirah and is aptly shaped like a palm tree.

The United Arab Emirates is a regional and international centre for TV and media. Dubai Media City and twofour54, Abu Dhabi's media zone, were set up to attract key international players and entertainers.

The Dubai Culture

Tourists have to remember that Dubai is a Muslim city, within an Islamic country, and therefore the culture in Dubai should be respected for that when it comes to their religion of Islam, dress code and behaviour. Visitors to Dubai should remember to dress modestly, particularly in areas where they mix with local Dubai residents. At the beach and at the swimming pool it is acceptable to wear swimwear, but tourists should cover up sensibly elsewhere. Short trousers and T-shirts are regarded as suitable holiday attire in many places, apart from when visiting religious sites and mosques, and even parts of the old city in Dubai. Women should wear a headscarf when entering mosques. When visiting Dubai during Ramadan, there will be certain restrictions in place especially when it comes to eating and drinking, so it is best to follow the advice of your travel agent and understand the local etiquette before travelling to Dubai.

Dubai also has a large ex-pat community mainly due to the large number of western employees brought in to work in the huge offices of the many large multi-national oil companies based in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates.

Being drunk and disorderly in a public place is also frowned upon. Alcohol can be purchased in licensed premises normally hotels or restaurants.

Showing signs of affection by holding hands is acceptable, however, kissing or hugging in public is not.
