      Looking for hotel in Dubai UAE.

      Dubai 15 hours ago

      Thank you for all advices to London.
      Three of us will be in Dubai UAE from 8 to 11 of October this year. We've found an Ibis hotel on SHEIKH ZAYED ROAD, but not sure how far is this from the city centre. Where exactly is the city centre? Is it where the tallest building with the name Khalifa is?
      If we are to stay there, how far is it from the city and what transport to take and how long in time is the journey going to take?
      thank you in advance.

      Will I face any difficulty to leave the counrty? Should I present that original copy on my exit?

      Kindly advice.

      Hi all,

      I hope you can help me. I'm flying to Australia via Dubai soon and my stopover is from 1am till 10am the next morning. I was wondering if it's worth going to the city at night and if there are maybe any organized tours from the airport at night?

      Mobile internet for visitors?

      Ras Al Khaimah Aug 29, 2013 at 6:46 PM

      I am planning a visit to the Al Hamra area in November, and my accommodation will not provide internet access. Are there reasonable short-term mobile broadband options for visitors? I have an unlocked quad-band GSM phone that takes a micro SIM card, and I am hoping to be able to use it as a mobile hotspot for my laptop and my partner's phone. Will any of the local providers be able to accommodate me, and if so, how much might I expect to pay?

    • Bikini ban

      Ras Al Khaimah May 31, 2013 at 2:14 PM

      I recently read an online article stating that the government of RAK introduced a new law saying that bikinis on public beaches are banned. How far is that true and are there any private beached where tourists can go and swim and sunbath? Since I already booked my holidays in RAK for july, I would like to know where I could still go and enjoy the beach? And would a one piece swimsuit on a public beach be fine?

      Thank you!

      Double Tree Hilton

      Ras Al Khaimah Nov 20, 2012 at 11:42 AM

      Hi all,

      we will be heading to the Double Tree Hilton Hotel in January for 1 week (and afterwards to Dubai for 3 nights). We have booked breakfeast only. And here are my questions (some might follow...) which I hope some of you can answer:

      What about the extra costs there? I am asking for the hotel and both the city. Is it possible to book half pension on the spot, would that be recommended or are there good possibilities to eat out in the town (two females)? Are there shops nearby to by mineral water?

      Do you have any suggestions for trips? What to sea nearby?

      Many thanks for your reply in advance!

      Al Hamra Fort.....Is it good?

      Ras Al Khaimah Aug 21, 2010 at 7:01 AM

      me and my new husband are thinking of going to this hotel but not sure whether to stick to b*b or upgrade to half board? Is it worth doing? And if so what restaurants can you eat in?

      Also we have not been to this place before and wondered what it is like.
      We like to relax with maybe the odd day out on an excursion etc.
      Please tell me a little more about it if you have been.

      Need some advice before going to RAK

      Ras Al Khaimah Aug 4, 2008 at 2:07 AM

      Hi, I have booked to go to RAK on 8th Sept till 16th Sept which I am awae of now is Ramadam (was not told by travel agent). This is not a big problem for me as I dont drink and wanted a quiet relaxing holiday anyway.

      A few things I wanted to query were dress code both for me and my partner in shopping areas, on excursions, around hotel and dining areas and beach.
      Also tipping, is this expected or not approved of.
      We dont wish to offend people and from another forum I dont get any clear answers

      We are hoping to go very shortly to the Beach resort and Spa, however, I have heard that they are building more villas at present. Has anyone been recently and can they tell me if this is further round the bay and if it will be really noisy and dusty where the finished villas and beach club are. I understand that the finished villas are superb but the holiday will be spoilt if if is exceptionally noisy
      Thanks
