I am travelling to Dubai next week for a work trip and I will have the evenings free all week, any suggestions on things I can do (safely) on my own (female!) I would like to see some of the best sights of Dubai but I have no idea where to start. I am staying near the Dubai World Trade Centre.
I have a stopover of 2 hrs at Dubai Airport. I would like to know if it is advisable to buy 22k gold jewellery while I am at the airport. I would like to get feedback on the following:
-Price ? Is it more than outside ? They probably don't bargain at the airport shops ?
- Reliability ? Is it safe to buy it from the airport shops ? Obviously, I don't want to be duped.
Hello, I'd like to know whether there is a public bus RAK-Dubai? What's the price and timetable? is it direct? and what station in Dubai is the last one? Is it near metro station?
Will be thanksful for any information! Thanks in advance!
Can anyone recommend a great restaurant for an early dinner? I'm staying on a Friday but my flight is at 10PM that night so I'll be dinning early around 6PM.
I have a long transit in Abu Dhabi. I arrive at 1AM and my flight leaves the same day at 10PM on route to Sydney. I'd like to stay in a nice hotel where I can relax, use the pool, maybe go to one of the private beaches, maybe venture out to a restaurant. I realise it's not particularly cultural of me but I really just want to relax before the long flight so not too fussed about seeing the sights. I've emailed a few hotels but they all seem intent on charging me for two nights accommodation because I'll be checking in late.
Can anyone recommend one where I can check out in the afternoon but still use some of the hotel facilities until I have to go back to the airport.
Thanks so much!
I am new to Dubai going there with my family (me, wife and 3sons)
1) Where can I find cheap and safe hotels - as I need to stay in 7 days
2) What is the cheapest way to go for sightseeing ?
3) What are the must see tourist attractions in Dubai ?
Thanks very much
I want to relax and swim after a long flight, go shopping & do a tour before i head off to see a friend in Oman. Most of all i want to feel comfortable e.g eating out alone. I do NOT want to be mistaken for a prostitute - sorry but I spent an eight hour flight from London next to an appalling man who spent the entire flight extolling the various virtues of various high end Abu Dhabi hotels for their amazing selection of Russian girls to a poor UK Abu Dhabi student .. Kind of put me right off Abu Dhabi and I now worry about staying there.. is it safe?
Arrive at 13:20 on a Friday at DBX and leave next day at 3:50 (am) next morning - 14hr 30min to Cape Town. Do I collect my luggage when I first arrive as i have booked into a close by hotel?
Thank you, RT
I apologize as I'm sure this is answered somewhere, but I can't find it. My wife and I are looking to travel by bus (E100 from Al Ghubaiba) to Abu Dhabi later this month (and then a return trip to Dubai a few days later).
1. Luggage--we will both have a backpack and suitcase. Are we allowed to transport luggage on the bus?
2. Tickets--do we buy tickets on the bus or somewhere else? I'm assuming we don't need to get tickets in advance due to the frequency of the bus service.
Thanks in advance for your help.

I am flying to dubai tomorrow. I wanted to get my haird cut before but unfortunately I didn't have the time to do that.
The first hotel I'll stay at is not far away from the Burj Khalifa so I wonder if you know a good hairdresser in this area as I want to get my hair cut the day I arrive. It's much more comfortable to stay there with short hair :)
Thanks in advance :)
