The Emirates Airline offers great discount on fight tickets with Dubai stopover. I stopped over Dubai for 4 days. The book has provided more than enough activities to make it a fun worthy stay. The maps and the detail site description are useful. Some of the listed times may not be 100% accurate.
In addition to the book, if you are a budget traveller like me, check out the Metro service in Dubai. I used the cheap and convenient Metro to visit sites suggested in the book.

HASH(0x9d6375d0) out of 5 stars Good Choice May 25 2012
By M. North - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was really surprised by this book. For how small it is, it covers more than I thought it would. It focuses on 5 areas. 1-Abu Dhabi and 4 areas/regions in Dubai. Detailed maps are provided for all (The fold out map is a bit awkward but there are also several mini maps throughout the book with marked numbers of the places/sites you are reading about.

The "10" is on account of the frequent lists given throughout the guide in groups of 10. It is not overly detailed but gives you many options to consider visiting or seeing without having to wade through a lot of extrenuous information to get to the nitty-gritty and, typical of DK publications, they are not skimpy on the amount of color photographs (although it is a small guide book, made that way for ease of portability, so some of the photos will naturally be quite small).

It is not going to have extensive detail on the history of Dubai or the UAE nor on all of the customs and traditions of the people. For those who will be visting Dubai for a long time, going there more than once, or consider relocating, this book along with Lonley Planet's "Dubai City Guide" and Culture Smart's "The essential guide to customs and culture of UAE" make a great trio.

HASH(0x9d956f84) out of 5 stars Eyewitness Travel Top 10 Dubai is outstanding Oct. 21 2011
By Careful Buyer - Published on Amazon.com

This little travel guide has everything a visitor needs to know what to do in Dubai. I liked the maps, which were difficult to find on the internet. Small, handy size is a plus but content is thorough for a visitor without having to plow through hundreds of pages to get the same essential facts. Packed with phone numbers, email addresses, addresses and enough photos to know what you are getting. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x9df39624) out of 5 stars goood book Sept. 22 2013
By indra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
nice size for travel. has a lot of information. seemed thou that information repeated it self couple of times in different sections. Could be a little more condensed. there is some information missing.. like train. it is a new city so things change. they have the train to the Burj Khalifa tower. its very easy..train takes you to the Dubai mall and then long cat walk takes you to the huge shopping center and the tower is right there on the ground level. reserve the time for the observation deck because there is a schedule (every 30min or hour) for it to go up for the lowest price (about $30 a person if I remember right). if you want to go right away you will pay double. so reserve the ticket and go shopping, while waiting. there is an amazing fountain show outside at night..music and fountains..great show.really impressive!!! take a short walk outside by the little river around the tower after 6pm, when sun is down. if you want to go anywhere else you will need a taxi. I had a connecting flight, so the train to the mall and to see the tallest building in the world tour worked great to me.

HASH(0x9d6b86cc) out of 5 stars very practical and useful in the generalities and details May 26 2013

This is a rather small book guide for Dubai Abu Dhabi which is informative and practical, which turned out helpful, although I wish it will have covered the other Emirates.
HASH(0x9d85f4f8) out of 5 stars The destination is outstanding and the book was used every day to plan the days events and figure out location, hours, etc. April 22 2015

I just came back from the UAE and this book was very, very helpful, the pull out maps were also very useful. I managed to do 9 of the top ten suggestions, it does need a few updates, the metro system has expanded, there is now a very worthwhile woman's museum and reservations are required for several of the hotels to get in at all. I would also add art galleries in the financial district of Dubai were worth the effort of getting there and visiting them, we saw some little write up in a local throw away paper.
