Dubai Has Reopened – Discover Without Crowds

Best time to visit
August, September, October, November

The Emirates have reopened. Dubai is open without any significant restrictions. Except not many people know this and very few people are traveling.

Dubai is the fourth most visited city in the world. Visitors spend more money in Dubai than any other city on the planet. But the hotels are quiet right now. There’s hardly anybody at the beach or in the malls.

Dubai is desperate for visitors to return. And there are some incredible five-star deals. To take advantage and travel you just need a negative PCR test dated within 96 hours of your arrival, along with valid health or travel insurance.

This has always been a city of private experiences, where you can spend a week indulging with your loved one. Here is an idea of a travel experience you can customise.

Why can’t I see a price?
