9 Hours in Dubai
What is the best advice as to what to do in Dubai when you only have 9 hours? Arriving around 11 pm and leaving the next morning at 8:30 am. I’m thinking that staying at the airport in a hotel makes the most sense. I’ve been trying to modify my reservation by adding another day but so far no luck in finding a business or first class substitute. This is for mid October.
Getting a good night sleep might indeed be your best bet.
Keep in mind that even in mid October Dubai will still be very warm.
Airport transit hotel (Dubai International Airport Hotel) is your best bet. At that time of night and morning, the immigration and security queues will take up most of your layover time if you tried to head out even to one of the nearest airport hotels (Holiday Inn Express, Premier Inn or Le Meridien).
