    • Luggage Transfer T2 to T1

      Dubai Aug 16, 2015 at 2:39 PM

      Hi... I'm planning to take a flight from Tehran to Dubai (Qeshm Airline) which is landing on T2. My next flight from Dubai to Islamabad (Shaheen Airlines) is almost after 10 hours from T1. we r a family of 4 with two kids and I will be carrying 4 pieces of checked-in baggage from Tehran. I don't have a Visa for Dubai so I will be required to get my family and luggage transferred from T2 to T1 for the next flight. Anybody who could tell me what are the luggage transfer charges applicable in my case? few months back, i took a flight from Jeddah to Dubai (Flydubai) which landed at T2 and i along with family was shifted to T1 by a coaster for my next flight to Tehran. My luggage was also transfered from T2 to T1 without any transfer fee. This time also i have confirmed tickets for my next flight. What will be the procedure? Is there any option other than Marhaba Services for luggage transfer? A detailed explanation will be highly appreciated.. thank you

      Need help in our itinerary

      by magic_jersey Online Now Oct 11, 2007 at 1:07 AM

      Hi to everyone,

      I have read in this website about the things to-do or places to visit in Al Ain, thanks so much for the info given.
      We are just having a hard time deciding on where should we start our trip.
      And one more thing, is there any other new place to visit aside from Jebel Hafeet, Al Jahili Fort, Al Ain Zoo and Hili Park?
      What is the best time to go there? And I heard there are some places that is best to be visited at night.
      We only have whole day of Saturday (this coming Saturday).

      And is the "ice skating rink" part of Al Ain Mall?

      Thanks so much for the help.

      best regards,

    • Arab Men's Clothings

      by sectumsempra Online Now Jun 4, 2007 at 2:04 PM

      I am traveling to Al-Ayn from USA in mid december this year. My stay will only be for 48 hours. My purpose of visiting dubai is to buy arab local men's clothing, for example: dishdasha, thobe, etc...for men. I am not looking for expensive clothings...just some reasonable pricing. Since my stay will be very short, i will not be able to visit different shops in the city.

      does anyone know any area in al-Ayn where local arab men's clothings are sold?

      I will really appreciate your help.

      I have the opportunity to take up a job in Al Ain, and am in the process of making a decision.

      I was just wondering if there are any opportunities for expat women to play a game of footie, either at a recreational or competitive level... Or at all!

      I am also looking to do some coaching (I know there are some Arab women's teams around) - does anyone know where I could contact the relevant officials?

      Living and Activities in Al-Ayn

      by dadueler Online Now Aug 6, 2005 at 8:58 PM


      I will be arriving in Al-Ayn during the first week of September and will be there until the Jun or July of 2006. I'm looking for an apartment or place to stay while I am there that is comfortable but not too expensive, I am on a student fellowship and have a modest budget. How much do apartments rent for? Is it possible to find furnished apartments?
      Also, what should I do about transportation? I would like to have a car, should I lease one? rent one? rely on taxis? I will be spending 80% of my year in Al-Ayn, mostly at the University UAE, and the other 20% in cities like Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi. What would you recommend as far as finding a place to stay in these cities for a couple of weeks at a time?

      Also, what sort of things are there to do in Al-Ayn for a young person like me? I have heard it is largely a college town, what does that mean?

      I am coming to the UAE in March. It's official! I am still looking for a cheap place to stay while I am in Al Ain. I am looking for something that is on the south part of the city preferably. I can only find 4* hotels when I do an internet search. Is there anything cheaper than this? I just want a safe and comfortable roof over my head for 4 nights.
