Dubai International Airport
Dubai International Airport is Emirates’ home base, and it’s the 7th most frequented airport in the world, as well as the most important aviation hub in the Middle East. In addition to an extensive range of shops, Dubai International Airport has a swimming pool, indoor Zen garden and Snooze Cubes, private rooms with a bed to rest. From the airport, both buses and metros leave for the city centre. Since the Dubai bus network is quite extensive, travellers who don’t know Dubai well are recommended to take the metro.
