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.

Going On A Desert Safari Tour In Dubai In The Winter

In New York, the Christmas season is heralded by Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade while in Europe, the weather has multiple personalities depending on the country you find yourself travelling in. In the antipodean nations on the other hand, the weather is as balmy as it can get, with plenty of opportunities for tanning and surfing.

 

For itself, Dubai has more in common with the later group of countries. Winter gaiety is simply a succession of days filled with sunshine and outdoor activities that can be enjoyed without worrying overmuch about the weather.
Safari Tour in Dubai undoubtedly ranks as one of the top things to experience while staying at the

Golden Emirate. The options for a safari tour can vary depending on the Abu Dhabi travel companyyou consult with.

For instance while some only arrange for a camel safari in Dubai, there are a few who provide dune bashing as an attraction as well. Your best bet would be to opt for an Arabian adventure that will give you a comprehensive package- from camel rides during any part of the day to a romantic dhow cruise in Dubai along the waters of the Creek in the night.
You could even carry your children along for a desert safari tour in Dubai for as much as 290 dirhams per child. Certain Dubai City Tours have specialized packages for tiny tots.
Beware of Dubai tour packages that do not have the necessary permits or grants to offer such activities. Go in for a professional service and your experience will be all the more authentic and safe.

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.
