I’ve created a journey information to Dubai UAE. When you’re occupied with visiting and unsure the place to go then hold studying and hopefully it would assist you resolve on issues to do, locations to go see, purchasing, cultural highlights and desert adventures and most essential how to save cash. Dubai has a lot to supply and is in contrast to wherever else on the planet. Right here’s my final Dubai journey information.

Dubai is just not low-cost. You have to to spend some cash in an effort to benefit from the lovely metropolis, nevertheless there are methods to save cash in case you’re on a funds. I’d suggest downloading the Entertainer app. It prices round £45 – £75 relying which one you go for. It has so many reductions for a whole bunch of eating places, bars and all types of actions. A lot of the reductions are 2 for 1 and it’s legitimate for 1 yr. I undoubtedly acquired my cash’s value.

I used to be in Dubai for five days and the entire journey value me round £1000 together with flights which isn’t so dangerous as I stayed in a 5* resort. You must plan to spend round £150-£200 per day, nevertheless you would spend much less relying on the place you select to remain and eat.


All of the accommodations in Dubai are lovely so it actually is determined by what you need to get out of your journey. I’ve beneficial a number of beneath.

Dubai Marina and JBR

In my view, that is one of the best place to remain in Dubai. It’s comparatively new and is probably the most Westernized space within the metropolis. If you wish to be near the seaside, the mall and nice nightlife I’d undoubtedly suggest staying right here. There are some nice eating places and bars and all of the skyscrapers, it’s truly very spectacular. I stayed on the Deal with Dubai Marina, which was connected to the mall – I’d undoubtedly keep there once more. The employees, the placement and the pool was pretty. Different accommodations to take a look at on this space are: Rixos Premium, Grosvenor Home, Sofitel Dubai and Habtoor Grand Resort.

Downtown and Enterprise Bay

I stayed within the Enterprise Bay the primary time I visited Dubai. It was nice because it was very near the Dubai Mall and near a very powerful landmarks, just like the Burj Khalifa, nevertheless it took round 20 minutes to get to the seaside and I discovered I used to be utilizing taxi’s much more than once I stayed within the Marina. If you’re trying to keep in additional reserved space and need to be near the luxurious outlets, then that is your home. I stayed on the Renaissance Lodge, it was new once I visited and I beloved it. Different accommodations to take a look at on this space SLS Dubai Lodge & Residences, Steigenberger, The Oberoi and Taj.

Staying On The Palm

When you’re joyful to be resort based mostly for a number of days, you may’t go flawed with The Palm because the accommodations are very good. There are such a lot of lovely accommodations on the palm, you actually can’t go flawed however listed below are a number of I like to recommend staying at: Atlantis, FIVE Palm, Anantara, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray or One&Solely Royal Mirage.

Additionally to notice you don’t have to remain in a 5* as all of the accommodations are lovely. The three* and 4* are simply pretty much as good and even higher then many of the accommodations within the UK and also you get to avoid wasting cash. I are inclined to e-book my accommodations on agoda as I discover they’re often the most affordable and worth match.



Like many individuals, this has at all times been on my bucket listing, so I knew I needed to do it once I visited Dubai. There is no such thing as a higher view than the one that you just get when you’re falling out of an airplane from 12,500 ft above the palm. It actually was one of the best expertise and I’d completely suggest it to all my fellow adrenaline junkies. It isn’t low-cost, I believe it value round £400/450 but it surely was completely value each penny.


This needs to be on everyones listing of issues to go see when in Dubai. It’s the planet’s tallest skyscraper and also you get an unforgettable view from the highest of the world! I’d undoubtedly e-book tickets upfront as it’s possible you’ll end up ready in lengthy queues.


Once more, for my fellow adrenaline junkies get your thrills on a 1-hour guided jet ski journey in Dubai, and see the skyline of town from the Persian Gulf. Jet Skis are for everybody, you get to hurry previous iconic sights such because the Burj Al Arab, go to Atlantis on high of Palm Jumeirah and trip again to the bottom. You additionally get to cease and take footage so don’t overlook your telephones/cameras.


Dubai is a lot greater than its skyscrapers and malls. Be sure to take a while out to discover outdated city and the gold souks, it’s a well-known vacationer spot the place you will discover loads of outlets promoting gold, different jewelry and fragrance.


See one other aspect of Dubai on a desert safari. If you wish to see what Dubai seemed like not so way back then e-book your self onto a tour the place you’ll get the chance to trip a buggy or quad bikes, go sand boarding, dune bashing, camel trip and finish the night with a dinner and stomach dancing present.


Plan to go to these hanging fountains not less than twice to get the daytime and nighttime view. Guide a desk at one of many eating places within the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, Dubai Mall and expertise the fountain present while consuming. I went to Thiptara, a Thai restaurant. The meals was pretty however somewhat overpriced. Nevertheless, there are lots of eating places shut by to take a look at.


It’s a must to go to the Dubai Mall, one of many world’s largest purchasing malls in UAE. Don’t count on to purchase lots because it’s not low-cost but it surely’s a lot greater than a purchasing centre. Go see the aquarium and underwater Zoo, in case you’re courageous sufficient take a look at the last word shark dive expertise. There are additionally nice spots to cease for meals.


When you love the water like me, take a look at a PADI course for an underwater expertise you’ll always remember. The visibility once I went wasn’t nice so I didn’t get to see a lot. All of it is determined by the climate, but it surely was an excellent expertise regardless and also you get to stroll away with a scuba diving certificates.
