Romantic Dubai City Tours to Enjoy in the Evening

The surrounding desert is one of the main reasons for the brilliant sunsets and the city’s favorite pastime at sundown is to head to open parks or even the outskirts to catch the fading rays of the sun. Even viewed over the skyline of Dubai, you will find the views equally breathtaking.

One of the best ways to experience a summer sunset in the city is on a dhow cruise in Dubai. As the abras (water taxis) wrap up with their day’s errands, the dhows venture out on the waters. Some ferry passengers across the Creek while some take tourists on a Creek tour for sightseeing in Dubai.
dhow cruise in Dubai can also be booked for a private cruise along the Dubai Creek. Dhows are let for more than two hours for couples and private parties. Since these dhows contain more creature comforts than the average dhows or abras, they are perfect for a romantic sunset dhow cruise on Dubai Creek.  
Another great way to experience the brilliant sunsets of Dubai is to step out on a camel safari in Dubai for

Seven Million People Making a Dubai Hotel Booking Cannot be Wrong

You read right dear tourist.
Dubai saw almost 7 million people booking suites, rooms and hotel apartments in Dubai in 2008. The 6,996,449 guests Dubai’s hotels played host to last year helped pull in revenue that totaled Dh 15.25 billion- a record of sorts for the emirate that revels in breaking and setting records. 
Despite unnecessary whispers of a financial meltdown, these figures do much by way of contributing to some relief for the city-state, especially when tourism plays such a vital role in the workings of Dubai. 
construction houses, hotel rooms are dubai

Thanks to the busy construction houses, hotel rooms are added every few days to the already extensive inventory of hospitality establishments in the city. Tourists who are visiting for somesightseeing in Dubai or a MICE in Dubai need not worry though, not all of these establishments are priced high or overpriced. 

For tourists on a budget, there are options like the Admiral Plazaand York International hotels in Bur Dubai and the Dubai Palmand Orchid hotels in Deira Dubai. The Sheikh Zayed Road, an important trajectory that sidles along most of Dubai’s important buildings is also host to affordable options like the Ibis World Trade Center and Metropolitan hotels. 
A number of tourists come seeking an adventurous safari tour in Dubai and prefer roughing it out in the deserts on the outskirts of the city. A hotel booking in UAE at the Bedouin-style Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa may not be for the budget traveler, but it sure is a voyage in tranquility. 
Whatever the Dubai hotel booking you may be in need of let ourDubai travel company know. We have special offer tie-ups with the best of them.

Hotel Booking in the UAE – In Search of an Ecotel

Mukul Kumar of Business Beyond Reality succinctly wraps up an ecotel saying:

 

“The Ecotel took shape of a major campaign by the hoteliers around the world to show their guests that even though profit may be the motive for running a hotel, they were equally conscious about the well being of the environment.” 
At Dadabhai Travels, we strongly believe that within this natural give and take, lays a major part of the

Ecotel

appeal of an ecotel. The rest is advertising genius.

Regardless, we are always happy to point our more eco-loving travelers and tourists to luxury hotels and hotel apartments in Dubai that are a bit more environment-friendly.
Take the Grand Hyatt in Dubai. Those visiting for somesightseeing in Dubai can hope for a booking from $344 onwards at this environmentally conscious hotel. Grosvenor House on West Marina Beach too can be a lovely option among luxury hotels in Dubai.
For smaller budgets, Le Meridien Baniyas Square and Ramada Dubai offer good eco-forward residences.
A word of advice: Hire a competent Abu Dhabi travel company to make the necessary arrangements for you. Most of the best agencies take care of choosing the type of hotel tourists and short-term residents prefer and even arrange for ancillary needs like Dubai car rentals and Dubai City tours.
Regardless, before you even plan your business or sightseeing trip to Dubai do make certain you remember to convey your hotel and residential preferences to your travel operator/agent. Your stay will be that much more comfortable for it.

Get a Touch of the Whimsy with a Dubai Hotel Booking at Raffles

If there ever was a hotel built with shameless flamboyance in mind, then it is Raffles Dubai. With its iconic pyramidal shape, the hotel is as much of a landmark as what the Burj Al Arab is.
The hotel is located in Oud Metha and is connected to Wafi Mall via a private corridor. The location of this 5-star luxury hotel in Dubai makes it very accessible from nearly all major quarters of the city like Deira and Sheikh Zayed Road (the Bur Dubai area especially).

Dubai Hotel Booking at Raffles

hotel booking in UAEdone at Raffles is a wonderful experience and is viewed as a novelty of sorts among the tourists visiting Dubai. Egyptian elements resonate throughout the décor and design of the hotel, intermingling with Singaporean and Arabian aesthetics in some places.

The hieroglyphs engraved on the walls are absolutely authentic and are largely stories of Egyptian myths and legends. Each of the suites is a testament to the four elements- wind, water, fire and air with guests being assigned to any one.
The same theme continues in the adjacent botanical gardens, which are touted as one of Dubai’s finest. A Dubai hotel bookingdone at Raffles will definitely not disappoint you, as you will not want for fascinating sights. The tip of the 19-storey hotel is made entirely of glass and at night makes for a remarkable sight.
For couples honeymooning in Dubai and in need of opulent luxury that does not need to be justified, head to Raffles Dubai. Our Abu Dhabi travel company can take care of your hotel booking in UAE as well as any Dubai City activities you wish to enjoy.

Become One With The Desert On A Safari Tour In Dubai

Deserts need not be a waste of space or blighted land, at least not where an entire sub genre of desert-related activities and adventure sports have cropped up to make the best use of such land.
Dubai, in true top-tourist-destination-style has the perfect antidote for the holiday blues with a jaw-jarring collection of sports and options known as a safari tour in Dubai. Desert safaris are typically an Arab pastime and while similar trips are offered in Africa as well, they have a more relaxed appeal in the Emirate.

 

Deser Activities
