    • 8 Hour Layover in Dubai Airport Terminal 2??

      Dubai May 2, 2015 at 8:29 PM

      Hey Guys,
      I was hoping for a reality check on Terminal 2. My initial flight into Dubai Airport, I immediately got put on a shuttle from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 for my Delta connection. This time i've got a 8 Hour layover in Dubai for by 4am flight to Kabul. My question is should I spend the night in Terminal 1, and got to Terminal 2 around 2am, or should I go immediately over there? I've heard that terminal 2 is the black sheep of Dubai Airport. Poor amenities, and very difficult to transfer over to. How difficult is it going to be to find a shuttle or even taxi and 2am?

      Thanks!

      BTW: I've got one check-in bag, but i was told by Delta that it would transfer all the way to Kabul.

    • Concerns about moving to UAE

      Dubai May 18, 2015 at 10:09 PM

      I am considering applying for jobs in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I have been to UAE on holiday before but living in another country is a different experience. I am a white female and plan to travel to the UAE without my husband for the first 3 months.

      1. How can I ensure my safety when I get there?

      2. I have heard horror stories about people being promised amazing jobs and then they arrive and either things are a nightmare immediately or things get bad once they take your passport & visa from you. What can I do to ensure that doesn't happen? I am applying for executive positions in corporate organizations.

      3. When looking for accommodation, what are the best resources? What areas in Dubai and Abu Dhabi should I avoid living in?

      4. I know that the UAE has many venomous spiders and snakes. I know there are sea snakes in the water and warnings about snakes on the beaches, but how common is the occurrence of seeing a snake in day to day life in the city and most importantly in your home?

      Thanks,

    • 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.

      Hello Everyone. So initially I planned a vacation in Istanbul - However, due to time restraints I've to delay my trip to Istanbul. So thought Dubai would be a good alternate for the few days I have.
      Okay So what I'm looking for is, the day I land(this Friday), I'd need company to hit the club. How do I go about that? I tried Travbuddy but over 90% of their members in Dubai section aren't active for over a month. Any other options?

      Secondly, I'd like to play some Tennis and Snooker. Would be great if you're interested in either sport or know someone who might be interested in Marina area. Also let me know if there's some sports forum for Dubai where one could find partners.

      Thanks.

I will arrive in Dubai 8 hours ahead of my husband and my arrival Terminal is 1 while my husband's plane will land in Terminal 3, 8 hours later.
      We have read in many forums that Dubai International Airport is so big and we have no idea how we can meet up with this different schedule of arrivals.
      Is it possible that after passing immigration and exiting terminal 1, I will then proceed to Terminal 3 arrival area and wait for my husband there so we can go together to our hotel?
