10-hour layover ... in the middle of the night!

We'll be in the Dubai airport from 10 p.m. to 9 a.m. the following morning.

Is there any point at all in leaving or will everything be closed?

Is there anywhere to sleep in the airport besides terminal chairs?

Thanks for any tips and suggestions!

Different terminals have different options, with arguably T3 having the better facilities.

Here are the sleeping options, and also some of the lounges are nice enough places to while away a few hours.

Dubai thrives at night, so there's always things going on that you could see and do - e.g. night fountains, Dubai Mall, Souk Al Bahar, Dubai Canal.
