Overview

Step-by-Step Dubai is a new guide to this exciting city and its surroundings, revealed through a selection of clearly laid-out walks and tours, complemented by beautiful, full-color pictures, an authoritative narrative voice, and a wealth of practical information, all in a compact package.
The guide starts with Recommended Tours, suggesting the book’s best tours for taking in various atmospheric neigborhoods, architecture, beaches, and resort areas.
In the Overview, an engaging introduction reveals essential background information on local culture, lifestyle and traditions, plus the lowdown on food and drink, shopping, sport, beaches, and the region’s fascinating history. This provides all the background information needed to set the walks and tours in context.
The Walks and Tours section features 14 irresistible self-guided routes. The first eight tours explore the city itself, and the final six extend further afield into the surrounding desert, mountains and villages as well as the neighboring cities of Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. Most of the tours are on foot, but there are also boat and driving tours; for each we show step by step how to get the most out of the destination, with something for every budget, taste and trip length. All tours have clear, easy-to-follow maps, hand-picked places to eat and drink en route, great insider tips and informative feature boxes. All this makes it simple for the reader to find the perfect tour for the time they have to spare.
The final section of the book is the Directory, incorporating a user-friendly, fact-packed A to Z of practical information, plus select hotel, restaurant and nightlife listings, which will lead the reader to the best that Dubai has to offer.
