How to book a 2 or 3 day layover in Dubai?
 
Hi all,

Sorry if that question has been asked before, but I couldn't find an answer.

On my next return trip from Hong Kong to Lyon (HKG-LYS-HKG), I would like to stop in Dubai for 2-3 days to visit on my way to Lyon.

On Emirates' website it says that I should book a layover with their travel partner in my city, but is there an option to do that myself without going through a travel agency?

Do I have to book separate one-way flights, 2 return flights, or can I include a long layover in my normal HKG-LYS-HKG return flight?

Thanks for your answers!

You need to do an advanced search and do

HKG DXB
DXB LYS

LYS HKG

assuming you want to stop on the outbound.

outbound would be HKG - LYS and OP had mentioned that's when he wants it. But yes, as m3red pointed out, do a multi-city/advanced search as:

HKG - DXB
DXB - LYS
LYS - HKG with the appropriate stopover dates.

I didn't know it was that easy! Thanks for your help!
