I have booked three rooms at Media Rotana on Sheikh Zaid Road in Dubai for the period of 27/12/2011-05/01/2012.
I can not go as planned and can not cancel the rooms.
I have paid 7000DH per room, double, for the 9 days.
Let me know if you are interested to take one or all three rooms for the same price.
I'm going to make a stopover in Dubai on my way to asia... But I don't have a creditcard. So would this be a problem by finding a hotel? Because you can't grant the deposit for the hotel.
Also does anyone know a good hotel in Dubai with a budget of 100 dollar per day?
Need to make shopping for SNORKELLING and cloths in Dubai.
Where and which shooppin mall/place is the best for this purpose?
Will have time for shopping only in the evening from 20:00 until 00.00
Hi all - bit of a specific one but hope someone out there can help - I'm transferring through Dubai and London Heathrow in a few days and need to stock up on a couple CF cards - I'm after SanDisk Extreme 16GB 60MB/s or 90MB/s. Anyone a. purchased these here? and b. know how much they cost? At the mo I'm looking at purchasing them online at between 50 - 80 GBP so looking to see if I can get a better deal in duty free - where I have limited time, so thanks in advance to anyone who can help. Bests, Beck
I am gonna be in Abu dhabi for 2 days and in Dubai for 2 days and wondering if u guys could give me some tips.
I obviously wanna see the architecture of the two cities but also very interested in sport.
I am planning to stop over in dubai to watch pakistan v england at thg dubai cricket stadium in january.
I need a bed for the night so am looking at one of the cheap hotels north of the creek (deira) or maybe in bur dubai district.
I understand taxis are cheap in dubai but get pissed off travelling round the world with taxi/tuktuk drivers asking stupid prices and refusing to put on the meter and often prefer public transport.
Does anyone know how much a meter taxi is likely to be from deira to the cricket stadium or is there any connecting buses from dubai centre or from any of the red metro stations to the ground.
My flight out is at 3 am from Abu Dhabi so will get the last Ethiad bus from the near Emirates towers at 11.30 pm. I will leave my bag at the hotel after checking out in the morning. assuming the cricket goes the distance are there malls with english language cinemas... more »
I welcome suggestions on what to do on a 6 hour transit in Abu Dhabi. I'll arrive on 1st Jan 2012 at 8.15 pm with a connecting flight at 2.30 am that night.
Would it be worthwhile to get out of the airport for dinner?
Would I have ennough time to explore Abu Dhabi? Or don't bother since it is already night time. I have not been to Abu Dhabi before.
My bags would be checked all the way through (same airline) so I don't have to show up 2 hours before take-off.
Want to visit dubai for bussiness trip end of December.
Any idea about staying in Rimal Rotana, Rihab Rotana and Al bustan centre?
A friend told me there are two kinds of hotels in dubai, the dirty cheap one with night clubs & the most expensive high class too pricy!
We are probably going to Abu Dhabi the last week in February just for doing nothing. All we need is a beach and a place to stay medium range (if they exist in AD?). What choices do we have? I visited AD six years ago and found a good beach then, but I don't remember the name. Is there any help out there? Thanks!
I am currently looking to move to Abu Dhabi and wanted help in finding a 1 bedroom apartment for a single guy such as myself.
Where in Abu Dhabi is the cheapest rent
I have been considering UAE for a while to do some teaching. I am a qualified teacher with a masters and from what I can see online, it shouldn't be a problem getting work. My boyfriend however is not a teacher (but does have a TEFL cert) and I was wondering what kind of work he could look for over there? He isn't qualified in anything in particular but has worked in studios doing sound stuff and now works in telecommunications. Is there many other jobs for English speakers besides teaching?
Also is it possible to just go there and look for work? What visa would be the best?
I'll be spending couple days in UAE with the transit visa. I assume it allows only single entry to UAE, however I haven't seen it written anywhere. Could anyone confirm that?
I would like to do a day trip to Oman, but I doubt it is an option with 96 hours visa.
Thanks for your help.
i will be in dubai for a week in at the end of jan 2012.
I understand that i should be wearing covered clothes as a lady and that the weather will be max 22 degress celcius.
but what would you suggest packing for clothes.
It is hard to get a grasp of the weather just from looking at average temps.
what would you pack?
I will be in Dubai next week.Heard about a restaurant called "Left Bank at Madinat". Never been there.
Does it mean the restaurant is by the waterfront of Madinat Jumeirah souq looking the abra boat?
Can someone recommend it?
Thanks to everybody for suggestion.
I would like to know if it is posible to do a day trip from Dubai to Musandam.
And where should seek hotel to be near the most interesting sites?
