Go for a swim If you’re not a gym bunny, why not do some laps? A swimming pool in an airport might sound unlikey, but if you head to Dubai International Hotel that’s exactly what you’ll find. There’s no better way to refresh and recharge in-between flights.
Go meat free There are plenty of delicious vegetarian options in the airport. In Terminal 1, try the falafel burger (Dhs68) at Giraffe, a local twist on a veggie burger. If you’re in Terminal 3, head to Le Pain Quotidien for a taste of their hearty vegetable gratin (Dhs56), with layers of field mushrooms, onions, shallots and aubergine.

Get zen Whether you’re in the airport for hours or minutes, the Zen Garden offers a peaceful spot to collect your thoughts and get back to nature ahead of your flight. Take a good book, your headphones or simply take in the surrounding greenery.

Skip the caffeine
Swap that morning coffee for a juice filled with nutrients. Pick up a ‘Vegelicious’ juice (Dhs21) from Pulp Juice Bar for a cool mix packed with beetroot, celery, carrots, apple and ginger. If you’re in Terminal 1, try a refreshing pure carrot juice (Dhs27) at Camden Food Co. DXB T3 and T1, pulpjuice.net, camdenfoodco.com
