    • Purchase of NOL Silver Card with 7 day pass

      Dubai Sep 29, 2016 at 12:34 AM

      All information of the Nol Card states that the Silver Card costs AED 25 which includes an initial e-purse value of AED 19. One 7 days pass for all zones costs AED 110. How does this work? Lets say you have purchased a Silver Card by paying AED 25, you now have a balance of AED 19 loaded on to it. Do you now pay AED 110 - AED 19 (AED 91) additional to get the 7 days pass? Or is there a direct purchase of both the Silver Card and the 7 days pass? Be grateful if someone can clarify. Thanks in Advance.

      Tickets to observation Burj Kalifa?

      Dubai Oct 19, 2016 at 1:34 PM

      When I try to book at the official site, it only allows for one month ahead. Since we will be leaving on a cruise, and I assume it is cheaper to buy online, are other sites such as '' reliable? anyone had experience? Viator charges $$ more for the same ticket, so not using them.

      Tour of the Hajar Mountains

      by MelP85 Online Now May 5, 2013 at 4:50 AM

      Hello everyone! A friend and I are going to be in Fujairah and were looking to do a mountain tour with this company called Best Shore Trips from Fujairah on any day from 12 to 16 May (inclusive). The company received great reviews on tripadvisor. It is= US$140 per person with a minimum of 4 people. The tour guys described the tour as follows:-

      "The excursion begins with a drive through the oases of Al Dhaid and Masafi, then reaches the village and port of Dibba, located at the base of the magnificent Hajar Mountains. To view the fascinating cliffs and deep canyons the drive crosses the Musandam Peninsula on off-road tracks through winding gorges up to a height of nearly 1’ 200 metres. A picnic lunch is served en route . "

      Would have liked to do an independent tour too but we would require a 4WD which would be tricky. Was hoping that there may be other travels in or around Fujairah at the same time who would like to go on this tour with us?
