    Depends on what you're there for; Relaxing in the sun or doing the tourist stuff?

    We go every year, at least once a year just to kick back.

    Desert safari is one to consider. Yeah the Burj Khalifa is a place to visit.

    Tons of great places to eat out, make sure you book Friday Brunch both weeks too.

    Shopping in the malls, dhow boat trips, but do brunch somewhere on the Friday ( it's a huge family get together < think Sunday lunch in the UK > but it's relaxed ).

    Ramada period..... Could be the best time to visit as a tourist for some folks and not a great time for others.
    Just bear that in mind. Bon voyage!

    Eating... Dubai is an epic location for gourmet eating. I have a friend who had sushi served on naked chick. I would like to have a taste of that, honestly.
    Of course, if you want to go on a shopping trip, Dubai is the place for you... especially when it comes to jewelry!

    I visited Dubai a few months ago. Its a cool place. I suggest staying at Park Hyatt which has a beautiful outside view and a yacht club. Besides this, there are variety of foods in Dubai which makes the trip lovely. Further, shopping malls are way biggg.
