    • Staying in Abu Dhabi as a young couple

      Abu Dhabi Jan 21, 2015 at 8:20 AM

      My boyfriend and I are planning on visiting Abu Dhabi and Dubai at the end of February. His uncle lives there and we are going to visit him and his girlfriend. However I am not quite familiar with how couples should behave when visiting. I read that showing affection in public is not the best idea, and I also read that unmarried couples shouldn't sleep in the same hotel room. So I am wondering if you have any advices about how couples (we are students) should behave and if it's a problem if we stay at their place. I hope not. Thank you in advance! :)

    • Need to clear customs at Dubai Airport in order to check in for another separate flight?

      Dubai Jan 17, 2015 at 9:16 AM

      Hi everyone, I intend to purchase 2 separate tickets to fly to Karachi. Its kind of cheaper that way instead of a connecting flight.

      I intend to fly to Dubai first with Singapore Airlines and then proceed to fly with Emirates from Dubai International Airport to Karachi. 

      My question is do I need to clear the customs and collect my luggage before I can check in for my next flight with Emirates? My son and I are Singapore Citizens so we have visa on arrival to Dubai but my husband is a Pakistani. He needs a visa to enter Dubai. We intend to remain at the airport and not go to the city. In my case, will visa be needed for my husband? Do we need to clear customs or can we just stay at the Dubai Airport Hotel without any visa required?

    • Where to stay for 1st time visit?

      Dubai Jan 5, 2015 at 2:50 PM

      Hi all. We are due to visit Dubai in June for a 9 night stay. We haven't been before, and after so much looking at hotels on the internet, we decided to book up at the Hilton Ras Khaimah Resort, Spa & Villas, as it looks lovely, but after realising it's an hour from Dubai, we are considering changing this, as we would like to visit the city to see some of the attractions as well as relax, so we are now finding it difficult to book somewhere to stay that will allow us to see the sights of Dubai, but also relax & chill out in the sun. Happy to stay a little way out, but is Ras Khaimah Resort, Spa & Villas to far? Or are their any other hotels nearer that will offer us the holiday we are looking for. Thanks for any helpful tips. Dean.

    • Baggage Policy

      Dubai Dec 22, 2014 at 2:56 PM

      Hi Friends,
      I am planning to travel from NY( US) to INDIA via Emirates. On my course of journey, I would like to get down in Dubai and take a 4 day tour. Planning to apply for 96 Hr Transit VISA well in advance, once the tickets are booked. However my question on baggage is as follows. From NY , I can check in two baggage s of 23Kgs each ( Total = 46Kg)which I will collect in Duabi Airport. Once I finish off my Dubai trip, Will Emirates allow me to check-in the same 2 pcs baggage to fly to INDIA with no extra cost? I read that Dubai Airport has a baggage limit of 30Kgs while flying to INDIA. It will be very costly if I have to pay for the excess baggage( 16kgs). Guys, I am sure..Some one must have gone through this kind of situation, please clarify my question.

      Burj Al Arab

      Dubai Dec 20, 2014 at 11:00 AM

      Hello everyone,
      We are hoping to visit Burj al Arab Skyview Bar in March 2015, either for a cocktail or for afternoon tea and wanting a window seat to watch the sun set, is it best to go for Afternoon Tea or a cocktail.

      Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Again is there any way to improve the chances of getting a window seat?
      We are staying in the JA Ocean View Hotel, as far as I know it's close to the Dubai Marina (correct me if I'm wrong) and wondered what is the best way to travel to get to the Burj AlArab - is there a Mono rail in the area of my hotel and if so will this take us to the vicinity of the Burj Al Arab?
      Any advise further adviser/recommendations would be most grateful.
      Thanks.
