No expense has been spared to make Dubai a five-star paradise for up-market tourists looking for great food and drink, extraordinary duty free shopping, and all-year round sunshine. The Dubai city guide includes: Full colour photography, using original imagery to give a real sense of the place Handy pull-out Dubai map Extensive area guides not only cover the sightseeing in Dubai, but also restaurants, bars and shops - all plotted on maps handily located within the chapter Top 20 list of the must-see highlights Itineraries to help you plan your visit Critic's choices pick out the best Dubai sights, experiences and cultural highlights - at a glance All Dubai restaurants and bars have been visited and reviewed anonymously by critics who pay their own way Dubai hotels independently reviewed.
