Hello everybody, I am having a layover in DXB of about ten hours coming up in about two weeks time. I´ll arrive at around 3 pm and have a connecting flight at 3 am. I haven´t been to Dubai before so I would like to do some sightseeing but am not quite sure how. First of all where can I leave my luggage? I cannot check my bags through as I purchased tickets separately and the airlines don´t have an interline agreement IMO. I guess check-in won´t start that early so I either have to take everything with me or deposit it at the airport. The latter is of course preferred. The question comes up where I can do this? Secondly, I thought about taking a taxi into the city centre but have no idea what the traffic in Dubai is like nor how far away the airport is from the city. Friends of mine told me that traffic is something I have to watch out for but as I said I cannot sum up traffic situations. How could my layover look like? What places could/should I visit?
Sorry in advance if something similar has been asked before. You may tar and feather me for this. I only came across this thread What To Do On A 14hr Stopover In DXB? (by EZYman Jun 26 2006 in Aviation Polls & Prefs) which didn´t really answer my questions. Thanks a lot for your help.
