Midnight Layover in Dubai and Flying with Emirates for the First Time

Midnight Layover in Dubai and Flying with Emirates for the First Time

My flight to Istanbul recently was actually my first time flying with Emirates, and surprisingly, it was also my first time visiting Dubai for real. Back when I worked as a flight attendant, I flew to Dubai a few times but it was never with a layover due to the short distance between United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.

So in this post, I’m going to write about my experience of having a red-eye hour flight with Emirates and spending a few hours for layovers in Dubai after midnight.

My flight was changed by the Emirates a couple of times since I booked the ticket earlier this year. As a result, my ETA in Dubai was slightly before midnight and I had to find out the best things to do around Dubai when almost everyone fell asleep.

Surprisingly, while there’s a lot of information about transit in Dubai, I barely found anything about a layover in Dubai after midnight. So that’s why I’m trying to fill the gap by writing this post!

So, how was my first flight with Emirates and what could you do in Dubai for your midnight layover? Here we go! 🙂
