Choosing Dubai as my next travel destination. What would you say about Dubai? Is it worth the trip over Australia?

It seems interesting to me, but I'm not sure about your comment in terms of 'over Australia'. You are trying to choose between the two, or do you have to literally fly over Australia to get there (seems a extra long route if you're travelling from the US). If the choice is between the two destinations, I don't even think there's a comparison there. Australia is so much bigger and has so much more to offer. It's like comparing Las Vegas to Australia as destinations. But if you only had time to visit one city anyway, then that changes things.

I've been to Dubai and quite liked it, but I'm not sure I'd go there again if I knew what expected me.

On the other hand, I've not been to Australia, but I'm quite sure it must be a lot better than Dubai...

If you are having trouble deciding whether to go for Dubai or go for Australia then choose Australia definitely. If you are definitely coming to Australia and want to know if it is worth stopping over in Dubai then I'd say it would be. I went to Dubai a few years ago just as it was at the beginning of this major boom period and I thought it was worth a few days especially to do a desert safari on the outskirts. Since the city has just taken off it is one place I really want to go to again and check it out.

Hi, sorry to hijack - although it is related!
I am flying out on the 6th of Oct to bejing witha transfer in Dubai and have asked about extending my transfer. How long would you recommend spending there and also is it much hassle geting to/from the airport.

Thanks for your time
Mike
