    • Suggestion for Big Bus Tours Dubai/Abu Dhabi Combo

      Dubai Apr 6, 2015 at 12:48 AM

      We are taking a stop-over and arriving Dubai on 10/05/15 at 1 PM and leaving Dubai on 13/05/15 at 10 PM. We have booked a hotel in Deira City Centre. We will be staying 10 & 11 night in Dubai and 12th night in Abu Dhabi with one of our friend. I did some research and found that Big Bus Tours would be a good option for us. Big Bus tour has been recommended by so may travellers in various forums. I am thinking to buy Dubai/Abu Dhabi combo ticket from Big Bus tours. On 10/05/15 evening, I want to use for Big Bus Tours for Evening Desert Safari but they only have Evening Sun Set Desert Safari tour and don't have BBQ dinner option. So, I am thinking to use 11/05/15 for Dubai Big Bus Tours and 12/05/15 for Abu Dhabi and stay overnight in Abu Dhabi. I have a valid EK ticket for 13/05/15 from Dubai. Can I book in advance (48 hrs or earlier) a EK Shuttle service from Abu Dhabi to Dubai on 13/05/15? If yes, does any one know what is booking process? I am looking forward from this forum a best possible, most cost effective suggestion to use 10,11 May'15 in Dubai. I will be leaving Abu Dhabi at about 9 AM on 13/5/15 for Dubai. My flight from Dubai is on 13/05/15 at 10 PM. So, I have some extra time on 13/05/15 until 7 PM in Dubai. I would like to use this time as well. Looking forward your feedback please.

      1) I want to visit a reletive in dubai who is prepared to arrange for visa. On an Indian Passport will I get the 96hr transit visa at the airport after landing. What are the fees.. again different sites quote different fees?

      2) Is a confirmed hotel reservation required What other documentation may be required? I will have an e-ticket for the forward journey.

      4) Is medical insurance required even for the 96hr transit visa?

      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!

      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.

      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
