How to find cheap flights to Dubai
Dubai remains a forbidden fruit for the typical Israeli traveler, as it doesn’t allow Israelis to enter the city since there are no diplomatic relationships between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. You can still find cheap flights to Dubai from Tel Aviv via connecting flights, but you have to make sure that you have a proper visa before booking anything. You can obtain a visa if you are invited to an exhibition or a professional event, and a local sponsor applied. European and American passport holders can get a 30-day visa to the UAE upon arrival. Note that if your foreign passport states Israel as a place of birth or has an Israeli stamp - your entrance to Dubai may be denied.
The best way to find cheap flights to Dubai is by using our “whole month” feature. Instead of specifying exact travel dates, select “whole month, ” and we will show you the cheapest airfares for every day of the selected month. You can also sign up for our Price Alert so that we can contact you whenever the price changes. You can play with the dates and register to as many alerts as you need, it’s free of charge, and you can cancel it at any time.
Dubai Airport is known as one of the largest and most luxurious airports in the world. Here you will be able to find hundreds of shops, bars, cafes, and restaurants. Sadly, Israelis are not allowed to travel to the UAE. However, cheap flights to Dubai from Israel are possible if you are staying at the airport for a connecting flight to another destination only as a passenger in transfer. While you are waiting for your next flight, you can relax on one of the comfy reclining chairs line the airport walkways. Wi-Fi is provided for the duration of your stay at Dubai airport.
How’s the weather in Dubai
If you ever thought that the summers in Tel Aviv are too hot, then Dubai is not the right place for you. The temperatures in July and August are above 40 during the day, and above 30 at night. There is no real winter in Dubai, as the temperatures are 23-26 during the day, and 14-19 at night. If you have found cheap flights to Dubai there is a very little chance that you will encounter a day of rain: in an average year, there are only 23 rainy days.
What to see and do in Dubai
There are many “must-sees” in Dubai. You cannot miss a visit to the tallest man-made building in the world, the Burj Khalifa. At the height of 828 meters – this stunning building is 450 meters taller than New York City’s Empire State Building.
Outside the building, you will find the largest water fountain on an artificial lake. On the fountain's playlist, you can hear “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston and Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long.” It’s not the authentic Middle-Eastern music, but tourists love it.
Dubai is also home to the world’s largest shopping center called Dubai Mall, with about 65 million visitors per year. Looking for a more traditional experience? Visit Dubai’s Souqs but remember, it is not airconditioned there!
You can cool yourself down at the beaches of Dubai and the iconic man-made Palm Islands, Palm Jumeirah or Palm Jebel Ali. Palm Jameirah offers a variety of hotels, restaurants, and beaches for visitors.
