These hop-on, hop-off city tours aboard open-topped double-decker buses are a good way for Dubai first-timers to get their bearings. Buses with recorded commentary in several languages run on three interlinking routes, making 35 stops at major malls, beaches and landmarks. Passes also include extras such as a dhow cruise, a night bus tour and museum admissions. Tickets are sold online (10% discount), on the bus or at hotels.
