Dubai is the second largest of the United Arab Emirates and is situated on the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula.

Booking a rental car with easyCar, the low cost, online, car hire specialist, is simple. easyCar has car rental facilities at Dubai International Airport and in downtown Dubai, and offers some great cheap car hire deals.
Dubai – The City
Dubai is a fascinating mixture of the old and the new, and is packed with attractions. Public transport in Dubai can be unreliable, so the best way to explore is by rental car.
If you want to learn about the history of Dubai, head off in your rental car to the 18th century Al Fahidi Fort in the district of Bur Dubai. The fort now houses the Dubai Museum, which contains range of artefacts, including pearl diving equipment, weapons and jewellery.
Dubai’s architecture includes everything from contemporary skyscrapers, such as the Emirates Office Tower and the Burj Al Arab Hotel, to beautiful mosques, such as the Grand Mosque. For a break from your rental car, take an abra (water-taxi) or rent a dhow (a traditional sailing boat) and sail down the Dubai Creek for great views of the city.
Shoppers will also notice the mix of old and new. Dubai has many souks, the traditional Arabian marketplaces, including a gold souk and a spice souk, and bartering is essential in these. However, it also has modern shopping malls, such as the Mall of the Emirates, which has more than 400 stores, together with restaurants, a cinema and a theatre. For a break from the heat, you can even go skiing, as the Mall of the Emirates is home to Ski Dubai, the Middle East’s first indoor ski resort.
Attractions in the Dubai Area
If you’re visiting Dubai, car rental will give you the flexibility to take day-trips so that you can explore more of the United Arab Emirates. You can use your rental car to get to the city of Sharjah, in the neighbouring emirate (also called Sharjah), about 20 minutes’ drive from Dubai.
Sharjah is known as a city of culture and has many museums, including the Sharjah Heritage Museum, the Sharjah Maritime Museum and the Sharjah Calligraphy Museum. Other attractions in the city include the Sharjah Aquarium and you can also take a boat trip on the Al Khan and Khalid lagoons. Be sure to take a trip on the Eye of the Emirates observation wheel for stunning views across Sharjah before driving your hire car back to Dubai.
Alternatively, jump into your rental car and head off to Abu Dhabi for a day or two. Abu Dhabi is the largest of the United Arab Emirates and the city of Abu Dhabi is worth exploring. Park your hire car and take a stroll along the Corniche, a waterside promenade which is popular with both locals and tourists, or visit the Abu Dhabi Heritage Village to find out about traditional Bedouin life. Take a tour of the luxurious Emirates Palace Hotel, before stopping off to shop at the Abu Dhabi Mall or one of the city’s souks.
