What to expect in Dubai
While Dubai is far from a budget destination, known more for its millionaire visitors and multi-million pound island developments, for items such as jewellery and electronics it can pay to buy them here. Dubai is a city of deserts, vast mega malls, indoor skiing, local bazaars and perfumed infused souks, seven star hotels and fine dining. Amidst all this glittering modernity there is a beautiful old quarter too, most of it around Al Satwa, Deira and Port Rashid which teems with life and is home to the city’s oldest building, a 17th century British fort. This is the real UAE where tradition is alive and well and mouth-watering mezze is cheap and plentiful. Whether its Bedouin feasts under the stars, desert treks, camel rides or family water-park excursions, Dubai is undoubtedly a hedonist’s paradise.
You will need a fairly healthy budget to be able to afford the local accommodation however eating out can be fairly cheap thanks to local and fast food options which start from £4* for lunch to £10* for dinner. Dubai boasts year-round sunny skies and warm sea. The most extreme heat lasts from late April to early September. If visiting the surrounding desert, it’s better to avoid the midsummer heat and go for in winter. Shoppers will be particularly keen to visit during the Dubai Shopping Festival in January.
