Dubai is probably one of the most transient cities in the world. Half way to everywhere (almost) Dubai is an ideal destination for quick 24 hour stopovers and month long holidays alike. 

Emirates have made those quickie stopovers that little bit easier. They are offering free hotel accommodation for those on stopovers between 8 and 24 hours long on their Emirates airline's Dubai Connect program. Awesome. 

Contact reporter, Alison Bowen of the Chicago Tribune turned her stop-over in Dubai to a vacation within a vacation. Here's the break down of  what she got up to:

7pm, The Dubai Fountain show

Straight from the plane to the Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Mall to watch the fountains.

8am, Tour of the Burj Khalifa – a 360˚ view of Dubai

10am, Souk Madinat Jumeirah

12pm, the Burj Al Arab
