Dubai Loves The Tourist

If you are planning a vacation trip or a short weekend in foreign climes, then you had better keep your options open for Dubai. Riding on a wave of tourism-love, Dubai has announced grand plans to pander to the travel and tourism sector.

 

Foremost among these plans are the moves proposed by the DTCM, which are decidedly going to attract more than the 3.5 million visitors that poured into Dubai between 2006-07.  
If you are planning to make your hotel booking in UAE for this year’s DSF, be prepared for a rate slash

ranging between 40-60 percent. Beverages and food at most of the popular joints are going to have a 25 percent discount too.

You will also find participating shops included in the discount spree called DSF with massive price cut offs of 80 percent. As there is an abundance of high street brands as well as traditional market ware, a tourist need not worry about limited options and inferior goods.
Additionally, the Dubai Road and Transport Authority has decided to create a rank system for taxis, so that commuters can promptly find access to a taxi when they need one. Just in case you choose to forsake Dubai car rentals, you could always continue on your Dubai City tours in a taxi.
Tourists and visitors need only to inform their Abu Dhabi travel company about their travel itinerary and requirements for a smooth tour experience. Coordinating with the tour experts will also give you a better chance to experience difficult to arrange Dubai City activities like camel safaris and dhow cruises.

Road Rules To Know When Sightseeing In Dubai

It would be smart to know a thing or two about the different views the Emiratis have towards driving and transport of any kind, if you are a first-time visitor in Dubai.

 

Most tourists who come into the Emirate do not find the need to drive around and usually end up hiring a Dubai car rental service to traverse the city. A few travelers like the freedom that personal driving affords and choose to rent cars.
Traffic is undoubtedly the main concern of any tourist, visitor or resident going about for the first time in

Dubai. The main thoroughfare of the city, Sheikh Zayed Road can be described in only one word during peak hour- chaos.

Before you step out for sightseeing in Dubai with your group, make sure you have found out from your hotel the best time for access to the roads you might take.
Also, do not forget to invest in a map or memorize one, as you can never tell which road is closed for roadwork, offering you no other choice but to take a detour. Before you step out it would be smart to chalk out the Dubai City activities you are partial towards experiencing though.
It would be best to not panic if you find motorists breaking established traffic rules. Make sure you stick to the rules you know though to avoid paying a hefty fine.
Suffice to say, the traffic situation in Dubai has improved greatly in the past few months. If you are not confident about your driving or the traffic, our advice is to make sure your Abu Dhabi travel company can arrange for a car rental service to ferry you across town.

Things To Do In The Night During Your Sightseeing In Dubai Experience

One thing that can be said about Dubai with definite certainty is the city’s commitment to pandering to different cultures. Perhaps one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the Middle East, Dubai boasts of a foreigner population made up of more then 1.2 million people.
While preserving its Arabic sensibilities, Dubai is a trifle more lenient with the dress, alcohol consumption and religious laws. Travelers coming for a bit of sightseeing in Dubai need to note that the only places where alcohol can be consumed are the hotels in Dubai, which house almost all of the nightclubs and pubs and a select few bars around town.
The racecourses are a different matter though, with the government granting a special permit for alcohol consumption last year when the Dubai World Cup coincided with the Prophet’s birthday.

Some really great places you can quench your thirsty palate during your Dubai City Tours are at the Atlantis, Carter’s (which happens to have an oxygen bar as well), Hard Rock Café, the Irish Village, Trilogy at the Madinat Al Jumeirah and the aircrew favorite Zinc.

Besides these party spots, you could request your Dubai Tour Packages to include a Dhow Cruise in Dubai or book an Italian opera extravaganza. Puccini’s La Boheme and the Nutcracker Ballet are two productions that feature in the event list for the coming months.
You can even take out children for shows like the Jack and the Beanstalk show and the Magical Music of Walt Disney children’s show. Why should they miss out on all the fun.
