Dubai City Activites – Explore the Majlis Ghorfat Umm Al Sheif

While the Majlis Ghorfat Umm Al Sheif is not that old a construction (it was built in 1955), it certainly holds an important position among some of the main heritage buildings in Dubai.

 

Explore the Majlis
Explore the Majlis

This building used to be the summer retreat of the royal family and on occasion, an important meetinghouse for the people who used to make Dubai tick. The Late Sheikh Rashid Bin Sayeed Al Maktoum presided over these meetings in the main hall of this simple and traditionally constructed structure.

Named after the Umm Al Sheif pearl fishing bank, the Majlis Ghorfat is an unusual, largely because of its design. The architecture leans more towards the practical than the aesthetic and is especially adapted to provide respite from the summer heat by way of large shutter less windows.
Dubai City tours of the heritage structure are allowed and tourists can even enjoy an opportunity to check the interiors of the two-storied building. Tourists coming for sightseeing in Dubai can visit the Majlis Ghorfat between 8am to 9pm.
Incase you have not made any Dubai hotel booking or opted for a tourist package, you can hire a Dubai car rental to ferry you to and from the place.
The Majlis is located in Jumeirah and is very close to the beach. It is currently unoccupied and serves mainly as a museum of sorts for visitors. The items used by the royal family are preserved intact and are on open display for tourists to admire.
Contact an established Dubai travel company like One World to make your bookings to view this slice of Dubai heritage.

Dubai – The Land of Shopping? Yes!

If things continue at the pace they are going, Dubai will have the distinction of possessing the highest per capita shopping space come 2010.

Dubai, it seems is all set to be known as the land of serious shopping.

Baby Care Resources for Tourists on Dubai City Tours

Dubai lately ranked 7 out of 55 top residential markets all over the world based on its yearly price progress. As a nation, it is has fared well on the economic activity, political clout, knowledge and influence and the quality of life fronts- factors that have contributed greatly to this ranking.

 

In an atmosphere like this, it is very much possible to find the amenities and government care programs that make living easier. Whether it is an expatriate or a local Emirati parent, care for infants and older children is abundant.
Tourists with children who come to the city looking for a rougher Arabian adventure like quad biking, dune

bashing and similar adventure sports nearly always want a baby care center.

EasyLivingDubai has some excellent help for moms and dadssightseeing in Dubai while CreativeMumz lists down some great nurseries you can drop off your child at.
Considering things like a short stay, temporary bookings at hotels apartments in Dubai and a busy tourist agenda, nurseries for toddlers and tweens can be the answer to your worries about your child’s well-being. Calmer leisure Dubai City activities like dhow cruises and camel riding are fine to have children tagging along, but overnight camping and desert skiing can tend to be a tad rough on children.

bikers in the Middle East especially are definitely gearing up to travel to Dubai. Incase your accommodation and travel are not yet arranged to attend the 3-day festival, then might we suggest making a Dubai hotel booking with us.

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.

Dubai City Activities – Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day

Going sightseeing in Dubai will inevitably bring you to the famous Irish drinking hole nestled at the Aviation ClubThe Irish Village. With St. Paddy’s day nearing (March 17), this quaint pub is going all out with Irish fare cooked and served the traditional way. If you have missed hearing Bob Geldof play live (he plays today), there is an impressive line-up organized at the pub in anticipation of St. Patrick’s Day.

 

You could even go on a safari tour in Dubai of a different kind for St. Patrick’s Day. Start with lunch at

Dublin Arms and move on to lively dancing atWaxy O’ Connor’spub.

Few people might be able to make it for the feast mass on the actual day, as most feast masses are usually celebrated on the Saturday that follows the feast date. One World can organize for you an Irish outing that will start at the Parish Hall of St. Francis Church (Jebel Ali) with mass at 10.00 am on March 21, 2009. You could book aDubai car rental with us to get you there and thereafter to your hotel apartments in Dubai.
It might be too late to book tickets for the Dubai Irish Society’s St. Patrick’s Day Ball 2009, but you could instead listen to Pure Irish Craic, a live authentic Irish music band on March 17, 2009. They are playing at The Westin Hotel from 7.00 pm onwards.
Gaelic football, hurling, dancing, music and merrymaking are some of the things even the Irish in Dubai are passionate about. Let ourDubai tour company know if you would like to join them in the festivities.

Unusual Hotel Rooms to Stay in: at the Dynamic Tower

The as yet location-unconfirmed, impossible, highly-unusual and very modern (in a Lego block way) Dynamic Tower project taken up byRotating Tower Dubai is undoubtedly the most ambitious building job to hit Dubai; not least because it is the first of its kind on the planet. 
Predicted to near completion by 2010, the Dynamic Tower is poised to add to the real estate portfolio as well as to the growing list of über luxury hotels in Dubai
For one, an innovative engineering trick will have the views change every three hours throughout the day, for each floor as well as each unit. Depending on where the tower will be finally constructed (their brochure simply states ‘in the heart of Dubai’), this aspect deems it a fantastic option for a hotel booking in UAE that is nothing short of unusual. 
However, the constantly changing views also make it a very high-price affair. In a city where people pay for views overlooking verdant gardens and vast spans of the ocean, a hotel suite commanding multi-views like the Dynamic Tower are definitely going to be on the pricey side
From the 80 floors that are to be constructed, floors 21 to 35 are proposed to be part of a luxury hotel plan. Unlike the floors with villas though, which also include dedicated parking space, the hotel spaces are as exclusive as they come. 
So if you are ready to visit the UAE for some sightseeing in Dubai, then you might think of adding the Dynamic Tower to the list of unusual hotels to live in. Get in touch with Dadabhai Travels to know about similar hotels and how you can go about making a Dubai hotel booking in them. 

Dubai Ranks Low in Worldwide Popularity Contest. Says Who?

The travel and tourism community is buzzing about the HSBC surveyon the ‘Friendliest Countries in the

HSBC Survey
HSBC Survey

World for Expats.’ I know many Dubai-ians are not pleased with the Emirate pegged lower on this list.

Commenting on a UAE Community blog post on the same issue Abu Dhabi blogger says:

 

“I love the social fabric of the UAE. It is a place where you walk into a hundred nationalities everyday. You see all kinds of people from those who stare at you as if you are from another planet to many who smile at you for no reason. I have never felt that I am not welcome here. YES there are instances of red tape in some government departments and some other issues, but to me the UAE has been a very friendly place. Every place has its issues, as does the UAE.”
Sentiments like these are, surprisingly echoed by many expatriates (many are avid commentators and bloggers on Dubai and UAE themselves!) and definitely make one think hard about the validity of the HSBC survey.
Our Abu Dhabi company keeps reiterating Dubai’s mass appeal and way of life, mainly because it is one of the best kinds you can come across in a region like the Middle East. Small wonder then that many tourists and visitors in transit to other places love sightseeing in Dubai or visiting for an Arabian adventure.
Dubai, if you make the effort to, can be a very friendly place and thanks to the government pushing many educational reforms, the language has far from become a barrier for interaction.
The next time you are looking for a hotel booking in UAE, remember all these points and consider Dubai.

Get your Rock Fix Along With your Safari Tour in Dubai

And no, we are not referring to any penchants for metallurgy or meteorology.

 

Taste of Honey on Your Arabian Adventure
Taste of Honey on Your Arabian Adventure

It’s just a couple of weeks until two of the most awaited music festivals in the UAE commence- theDubai Desert Rock Festivaland theSkywards Dubai International Jazz Festival (2009). A lot of head bangers and jazz connoisseurs are booking their Dubai tour packages with us to get to the venues in time.

Motörhead are planning to kick start the 2-day Dubai Desert Rock on March 6, while the Jazz festival headlined by James Blunt is expected to start earlier from February 25. Accompanying these notable artists are acts like Chimaira (US), Scarab (Egyptian), Sarah Mitchell (UK) and Mike Stern (US).
The rock and metal scene in Dubai is worth a mention here as the Dubai Desert Rock is the only festival of its kind in the Middle East. Since 2004, a succession of bands like Sepultura, Metallica, The Rasmus and Velvet Revolver has entertained the Emirati rock aficionados.
If you are visiting the Emirate for a Dubai City tour around this time of the year, then you might want to catch this year’s acts in all their writhing, screaming glory.
To parch your throat and keep in time with the spirit of rock, you could head to watering holes like Hard Rock Café on Sheikh Zayed Road or Touch to hear Pilipino, Australian, Canadian and even local bands belting out well orchestrated numbers.
For music enthusiasts sightseeing in Dubai can be a good experience, given its love for concerts and international acts. Make a hotel booking in UAE before February 25 though if you want to enjoy the jazz and rock festivals respectively.
