Nope, we are not confusing Dubai with London – you can really jump aboard a big, red double decker in the middle of the desert too. Hop on and off this tour of Dubai during the day or take the bus during the night for an illuminating look at the city. The tour shows Dubai’s landmarks and charts the emirate’s rise from a small fishing town to an international city of architecture and tourism. From Dhs1,500; Rania Business Centre, Al Barsha (04 447 1604).
