Marco Polo Dubai: the Travel Guide with Insider Tips

Experience all of Dubai's attractions with this up-to-date, authoritative guide, packed with Insider Tips. Most holidaymakers want to have fun and feel relaxed from the moment they arrive at their holiday destination - that's what Marco Polo Guides are all about. You'll find excellent hotels, numerous recommendations for places to eat and drink, tips on shopping, what to do with children and how to get by on a limited budget, plus information on festivals and events. Also contains: the Perfect Day, Travel Tips, Links, Blogs, Apps & more, and a comprehensive index.

As recently as the 1960s Dubai was a relatively insignificant Bedouin settlement, but thanks to oil it is now a global city of superlatives: the world's tallest building, its second-largest shopping mall, and an enormous artificial waterfront. MARCO POLO will see you safely to all the attractions of the city, the second largest of the Emirates. Alongside the new, modern Dubai you'll find plenty of the original town in the traditional bazaars, the souks or in the Dubai Museum. The most important Highlights tell you what you absolutely shouldn't miss, as well as what to do on days when it is too hot outside.

Insider Tips suggest some novel experiences to be had off the beaten tourist track, such as a visit to the weekend open-air market in the hip district of Dubai Marina or a ride on the Dubai monorail which guarantees the best views of the Hotel Atlantis. Panels in each chapter propose things to do if you're on a tight budget and where to pick up some real bargains.

To prevent any blunders, the Dos & Don'ts chapter spells out things you need to be aware of and avoid. The Best Of pages highlight some unique aspects of Dubai, places you can visit for free, as well as oases of calm where you can sit back and relax.

MARCO POLO Dubai provides comprehensive coverage of the city. To help you find your way around there's a detailed street atlas inside, a folding city map in the backcover, plus a handy pull-out map. A must-have for all travellers, including those who haven't bought a travel guide in the past.

Product Description


Wanderlust Magazine: You've got to applaud Marco Polo's chutzpah to launch 30 new city/island guidebooks into an already pretty crowded market. Aiming to occupy the middle ground between the context-heavy luggage fillers and the context-free thinner volumes, the main USPs of these user-friendly guides are the plentiful 'Insider tips' dotted around each edition, the maps they're packaged with, and the pocket cheering price (GBP5.99 each). Complete with near-magazine style features, they're certainly a less intimidating proposition than some of the big wedges on offer. --Wanderlust Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy yet full of information 10 Sep 2012
By Charlie
This is the only Guide I have come across that has not given too much information and just given the information that you need.
The insider tips are really useful and the maps are the best and most detailed that I have seen.

All in all a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely little guide. 3 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After looking at various guides on-line, I decided to go for this particular one as the lay-out looked the best. There are probably more in-depth guides out there, but when this little book actually arrived I was not disappointed and happy I'd made the right decision. From the information given, to the detailed maps, to the insider tips ... I cannot fault this guide in any way.
