Drenched in money, glitz and glamour, Dubai is a millionaire’s dream. However, us mere mortals aren’t left out when it comes to visiting this spectacular Middle Eastern destination, with more and more budget friendly accommodation springing up. Thankfully so, as there’s so much to see and do, it would be a shame to miss it.
Flights head east all year, with reasonable fares to be found. Lower the cost even further, and add in a world of convenience, by checking out great value airport extras. I swear by airport parking, eliminating the need for expensive airport taxis and giving great peace of mind. I’ve used Luton Airport Parking in the past and was really impressed. You’ll find this service at most airports, including the capital, with Heathrow Airport Parking offered at competitive rates.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that Dubai is full of streets paved with gold, thanks to its reputation, but it’s actually a destination accessible to all, with lots of activities to keep everyone occupied. You’ll find beaches in easy access – perfect for lapping up some of that golden sunshine, beautiful architecture, especially the Al-Fahidi Fort, and you can shop until you drop in the Mall of Emirates and the various souks around the city – which is certainly where I’d be heading to spend, spend, spend!
There is another side to Dubai too, one that many don’t realise, and that’s the natural beauty side. Of course you’re not far away from the desert, so I’d really recommend heading into the dunes for a day’s dune bashing. This popular activity is such great fun and a real laugh.
Night-time is typically bright and colourful, with scores of bars and clubs to party the night away in style. You’ll find top-notch restaurants to fill your belly, with a menu to suit everyone, and every taste catered for. Dubai misses nothing out.
Dubai is one of those destinations that has to be seen to be believed, a little like Las Vegas in some ways, and it’s certainly as bright, yet wonderfully so. Maybe a once in a lifetime destination, remember to lower costs where possible, with my idea of airport parking. Another service I’ve used on my travels is Birmingham Airport Parking, with a great price quoted too, so check it out if you’re traveling from the Midlands.
If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, something with panache, luxury, glamour, glitz and a dazzling allure, then Dubai is the place to go.
Dubai is always a nice place to hang out – but bring a well stuffed wallet! I love to go Shopping here – especially during the big “shopping festival”. I also recommend visiting the Gold souk.
Dubai changes so quickly – I need to get back at some point 🙂
