      Dubai in 1980s

      Dubai Jun 4, 2015 at 12:44 PM

      Hi, My grandparents moved to Dubai in 1980 and I spent 6 months a year for 10 years there, however I cannot remember or find an address. I am returning to Dubai next month for the first time in 25 years and want to go and see where they used to live - I very much doubt it is still there and I am fully aware how much Dubai has changed as I am a travel agent.

      I am just hoping someone may know the area!

      It was off Jumeirah Beach Road and near to an Ex Pat type place with a pool and restaurant/bar called the Costay/Coste Club (probably incorrect spelling!), my uncle was a DJ and lived with them and worked at a Spinneys near this ex pat social club.

      Just wondering if anyone may know something that could be in the vicinity. Sadly my granfather died 6 years ago so I can't ask him.

      Dubai Jun 3, 2015 at 6:30 PM

      Hi all...

      we are a couple on a 12 hour (flight to flight) layover in dubai from 6.30 am to 6.30pm Sunday 21st June(RAMADAN)
      I have the following itinerary: arrive by cab from airport to madinat jumeirah/burj al arab zone and have breakfast there somewhere, any hotel recommended? As at Ramadan no restaurant serve food I guess, if any, please advise?

      After breakfast I thought we will head out for photos near beach and burj al arab since it is going to be still early and we'd better aim to the places who do not have opening time first.. and hopefuly being early morning it would not be super super hot...

      then cab to the dubai mall which i guess opens at 10am even at ramadan? and spend there the hottest hours of the day...

      then jumairah mosque for more pics and end the day with the souks/creek, at that point we will be closer to the airport and won't need rush that much

      We need to be at the airport by 4.30, so this is a 8/9 hrs itinerary...

      If anyone can recommend a place for breakfast with maybe nice views next to the burj al arab it would be much appreciated. Does anyone know how much could cost to cab everywhere approx?
      Will a t shirt and long pants be decent clothing for me (girl) or do I need to cover my elbows..

      Tour of the Hajar Mountains

      by MelP85 Online Now May 5, 2013 at 4:50 AM

      Hello everyone! A friend and I are going to be in Fujairah and were looking to do a mountain tour with this company called Best Shore Trips from Fujairah on any day from 12 to 16 May (inclusive). The company received great reviews on tripadvisor. It is= US$140 per person with a minimum of 4 people. The tour guys described the tour as follows:-

      "The excursion begins with a drive through the oases of Al Dhaid and Masafi, then reaches the village and port of Dibba, located at the base of the magnificent Hajar Mountains. To view the fascinating cliffs and deep canyons the drive crosses the Musandam Peninsula on off-road tracks through winding gorges up to a height of nearly 1’ 200 metres. A picnic lunch is served en route . "

      Would have liked to do an independent tour too but we would require a 4WD which would be tricky. Was hoping that there may be other travels in or around Fujairah at the same time who would like to go on this tour with us?
