Known for generations as the "City of Merchants," Dubai welcomes visitors with an eclectic mix of Western comforts and Eastern traditions in what is considered to be the commercial and trading hub of the Middle East. It is here that business and leisure travelers to Holiday Inn Express® Dubai hotels will discover an Arabian adventure in an exceptionally modern city.
Boasting a beautiful, warm climate year round, as well as friendly people, a bustling business centre, cultural opportunities, great shopping, exquisite dining, exciting sports and a virtually crime-free atmosphere, Dubai is truly a world-class destination.
Spend some time discovering the rich Arab-Islamic culture at the Dubai Museum, which features an array of collections, including hundreds of unearthed artifacts dating back to the third millennium B.C.
See the forts, mosques, palaces and other attractions, like Heritage & Diving Village in the Shindagha district. Or visit Sheikh Saeed's House, home to a stunning collection of rare photographs, coins, stamps and historical documents.
