LOVE FROM DUBAI – Allthingssonia

I’ve created a journey information to Dubai UAE. In the event you’re serious about visiting and undecided the place to go then maintain studying and hopefully it is going to make it easier to determine on issues to do, locations to go see, purchasing, cultural highlights and desert adventures and most vital how to economize. Dubai has a lot to supply and is not like wherever else on the planet. Right here’s my final Dubai journey information.

Dubai is just not low-cost. You’ll need to spend some cash with a purpose to benefit from the lovely metropolis, nonetheless there are methods to economize for those who’re on a finances. I’d suggest downloading the Entertainer app. It prices round £45 – £75 relying which one you go for. It has so many reductions for tons of of eating places, bars and all kinds of actions. Many of the reductions are 2 for 1 and it’s legitimate for 1 yr. I positively received my cash’s value.

I used to be in Dubai for five days and the entire journey price me round £1000 together with flights which isn’t so unhealthy as I stayed in a 5* resort. You need to plan to spend round £150-£200 per day, nonetheless you would spend much less relying on the place you select to remain and eat.


All of the lodges in Dubai are lovely so it actually is dependent upon what you need to get out of your journey. I’ve advisable a number of beneath.

Dubai Marina and JBR

For my part, that is the most effective place to remain in Dubai. It’s comparatively new and is probably the most Westernized space within the metropolis. If you wish to be near the seaside, the mall and nice nightlife I’d positively suggest staying right here. There are some nice eating places and bars and all of the skyscrapers, it’s truly very spectacular. I stayed on the Tackle Dubai Marina, which was connected to the mall – I’d positively keep there once more. The employees, the situation and the pool was beautiful. Different lodges to take a look at on this space are: Rixos Premium, Grosvenor Home, Sofitel Dubai and Habtoor Grand Resort.

Downtown and Enterprise Bay

I stayed within the Enterprise Bay the primary time I visited Dubai. It was nice because it was very near the Dubai Mall and near a very powerful landmarks, just like the Burj Khalifa, nonetheless it took round 20 minutes to get to the seaside and I discovered I used to be utilizing taxi’s much more than once I stayed within the Marina. If you’re seeking to keep in additional reserved space and need to be near the luxurious outlets, then that is your house. I stayed on the Renaissance Resort, it was new once I visited and I beloved it. Different lodges to take a look at on this space SLS Dubai Resort & Residences, Steigenberger, The Oberoi and Taj.

Staying On The Palm

In the event you’re joyful to be resort based mostly for a number of days, you may’t go incorrect with The Palm because the lodges are very good. There are such a lot of lovely lodges on the palm, you actually can’t go incorrect however listed below are a number of I like to recommend staying at: Atlantis, FIVE Palm, Anantara, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray or One&Solely Royal Mirage.

Additionally to notice you don’t have to remain in a 5* as all of the lodges are lovely. The three* and 4* are simply pretty much as good and even higher then many of the lodges within the UK and also you get to avoid wasting cash. I are inclined to e-book my lodges on agoda as I discover they’re normally the most affordable and value match.



Like many individuals, this has at all times been on my bucket record, so I knew I needed to do it once I visited Dubai. There is no such thing as a higher view than the one that you simply get when you’re falling out of an airplane from 12,500 toes above the palm. It actually was the most effective expertise and I’d completely suggest it to all my fellow adrenaline junkies. It isn’t low-cost, I believe it price round £400/450 but it surely was completely value each penny.


This needs to be on everyones record of issues to go see when in Dubai. It’s the planet’s tallest skyscraper and also you get an unforgettable view from the highest of the world! I’d positively e-book tickets prematurely as you could end up ready in lengthy queues.


Once more, for my fellow adrenaline junkies get your thrills on a 1-hour guided jet ski journey in Dubai, and see the skyline of the town from the Persian Gulf. Jet Skis are for everybody, you get to hurry previous iconic sights such because the Burj Al Arab, go to Atlantis on high of Palm Jumeirah and trip again to the bottom. You additionally get to cease and take photos so don’t overlook your telephones/cameras.


Dubai is a lot greater than its skyscrapers and malls. Ensure you take a while out to discover previous city and the gold souks, it’s a well-known vacationer spot the place you will discover loads of outlets promoting gold, different jewelry and fragrance.


See one other aspect of Dubai on a desert safari. If you wish to see what Dubai regarded like not so way back then e-book your self onto a tour the place you’ll get the chance to trip a buggy or quad bikes, go sand boarding, dune bashing, camel trip and finish the night with a dinner and stomach dancing present.


Plan to go to these putting fountains no less than twice to get the daytime and nighttime view. Guide a desk at one of many eating places within the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, Dubai Mall and expertise the fountain present while consuming. I went to Thiptara, a Thai restaurant. The meals was beautiful however a little bit overpriced. Nevertheless, there are various eating places shut by to take a look at.


You must go to the Dubai Mall, one of many world’s largest purchasing malls in UAE. Don’t anticipate to purchase quite a bit because it’s not low-cost but it surely’s a lot greater than a purchasing centre. Go see the aquarium and underwater Zoo, for those who’re courageous sufficient try the last word shark dive expertise. There are additionally nice spots to cease for meals.


In the event you love the water like me, try a PADI course for an underwater expertise you’ll always remember. The visibility once I went wasn’t nice so I didn’t get to see a lot. All of it is dependent upon the climate, but it surely was a terrific expertise regardless and also you get to stroll away with a scuba diving certificates.
