Why You Should Stay Instead of Stopover in Dubai

Lauren Powell

I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve stopped over in Dubai and haven’t even taken a considered moment to explore the airport for more than an hour, let alone leave it! Yet as we take advantage of the pristine facilities it offers and pray that our connecting flight isn’t delayed even a minute so we can reach our final destination swiftly, one of the world’s most captivating and innovative city’s is just minutes away. Australian expat and textile designer, Georgia Macmillan, who relocated to Dubai with her family three years ago, is a self-confessed advocate for the famous United Arabs Emirates city and has made the case as to why we should look beyond the airport and stay a night (or five). Scroll on for Macmillan’s locals-only guide to Dubai and why you should stay instead of stopover next time you grace the unrivalled city with your presence—you won’t regret it.
