(Re) Discover Dubai at your own pace with City Sightseeing Dubai. “Hop on – hop off” it’s the simplest concept: 1 ticket valid for 24 hours or more, over 40 bus stops spread on 4 routes citywide and you decide when to ride, where to get off, what to visit. Our ticket also includes loads of free stuff: 7 museums, 3 boat rides, 3 walking tours, coffee, water and other discounts at various merchants.

From the open top of a double decker bus, there are no better views, complimented by commentary in 13 languages. From 9 am to 10 pm, 365 days a year.

We always do the city sightseeing bus tour. Bought the ticket prior to trip using Quidco, saved quite a lot. Price is dear but got a boat trip and river taxi ride included. We also extended our ticket by a further day. Good way to travel.

We bought a 24 hour pass, spanning two days. The Blue Route was our first choice, and was quite enjoyable. Unfortunately the night time "City of Lights" tour went near enough the same route, and didn't take in any of Dubai Marina which seemed to have the nicest lit buildings - it was a shame they didn't include the night...

This tour was part of our holiday package but I would have certainly paid had it not been. We were able to get the bus from our hotel (The Atlantis) so started off on the blue route, we got off at the Mall of the Emirates and after a look round boarded again to Dubai Mall where we swapped to...

The city sightseeing bus is a very good option for solo traveler's or families to visit the most iconic places of Dubai without spending more money. There are many routes that you can choose around the city. If you book the 48 hrs bus it gives you free entrance to Dubai museum-aquariom etc... You can hop on in different locations... More

As with the usual bus tours, this company offer four routes through Dubai. Be careful as the last bus leaves at 5.30pm. When I asked before buying the ticket I was told the last bus would leave at 10pm. There is a night bus that leaves at 6pm and 8pm from the Dubai mall. I would have thought that for... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
