weekend getaway in UAE

by tracyskf

Hi Folks
Any recommendation for a weekend getaway (possibly 3D2N) within UAE?
Possibly a driving trip (but not too stressful one), pls let me know your suggestions. Thank you! =)

Depends on budget. If you have a five star budget you could spend a weekend at Bab El Shams Resort. For less you could go to Hatta Fort Hotel or Al Ain, Fujeirah or Ras Al Khaima.

Well, travel agents in your area also may offer some packages of hotel+ Touring around+ special requests added. That would be much easier and cost effective than doing it on own!!

Try contacting your travel agent... Fujairah is cool, Le Meridien Al Aqah of JAL in Fujairah are on top of my hotel destinations. You can even go to Sharjah and stay with your friend's house if you budget will not allow it. I normally do my week-end in The Old Town, stay with my friends, go to Souq Al Bahar or Al Manzil in the vening for a drink, see the tallest building while eating or having coffe on their terrace. I believe its all up to your budget and what type of destination you are looking for!

A lot of people in Dubai go to Oman for their weekend getaways. The mountains etc are stunning and it is (relatively) cooler at altitude. I don't know what cheaper accommodation is available at Al Ain, but that looked really nice. I spent a night at the government rest-house (clean, own bathroom, safe - what more do you want) at Liwa oasis in the Abu Dhabi emirate (about a 3/4 hour drive from dubai)

Travel Tips for Dubai

Ramadan

by call_me_rhia

Ramadan is a special time to visit Dubai - even if many things close down during day time. During this holy month, when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk, everything seems to be at a special price: food, hotels, clothes and so on and so forth. The drawback is that you need to adapt to their uses and costumes, which is actually very simple.
You may not eat, drink and smoke in public... however every hotel has a restaurant (hidden behind curtains) open for non-fasting guests. Drinking can sometimes become a problem - but it's a very simple annoyance, either you head into a hotel and have something to drink there, or else you can try to sneak at the back of a shop or find a corner where no one sees you, and you simply sip some water. Generally speaking we found people very tolerant about this, as soon as you do it discreetly.

Go to the beach

by Gard

There seems to be many nice beaches along the coast and we went to one of the nearest beaches called the Jumeira Beach Corniche. The beach was really nice and the water was clear. Quite amazing considering that the dry docks of Dubai are not that far away. The water was not as warm as I had expected but I guess we have to take into consideration that it is spring. I would guess that the water temperature was a bit above 20 degrees. If you want to go further out of town it is possible to visit the Jumeira beach park. But remember that they have “Women only” days in this park so check before you go. And if you go even further you will reach the area where Jumeirah Beach hotel and Burj Al Arab is located.

for basic grocery shopping

by uglyscot about Spinneys

SPINNEYS is a chain of grocery shops to be found in the Gulf. There are the usual sections: fresh fruit and vegetables from all over the world; a bakery section with a variety of bread, rolls and pastries; meat, fish and poultry;and of course, the basic necessities. There is also a section where books, CDs and videos can be purchased. Good fresh fruit and vegetables a bit more than in the smaller shops

Travel in comfort: Taxis

by xuessium

Taking a taxi in Dubai is akin to a limousine experience. Cool and comfortable under the hot sun.

All drivers wear neat crispy uniform with ties. They speak English. You can flag any taxi down at any spot. Everything is metered so you don't have to waste brain cells with bargaining.

The only catch is that it's probably the most expensive mode of travelling in Dubai, especially if you are on a tight budget.

I took a cab from the Spice Souk in Deira to the Jumeirah Free Beach and the 30 minutes or so journey bled about 20AED from my wallet.

Meter Rate (circa Jan 08):
Day Rate: 3AED plus 1.17AED per km
Night Rate: 3.50AED plus 1.70AED per km
Airport Rate: 16AED plus 0.50 fils per 500 metres

pakistani kebab

by bahaiano about alis kebas (or sth like this)

i was in this pakistani quarter who looked not like dubai. i found it from my way home from the marvellous beach on an half-island at the right end of dubai. i got out the bus and walked down a lively street, got shaved, played games with pakistanis on a carpet while every two minutes a plane flew just a few feeds over our heads.
after it, i wanted to eat sth and checkt some of the reataurants there. the best i found was a little kebab house who served tiny kebabs for a good price (about 0.5 Euro). i got 3 of them! delicious this tiny kebabs made on the street, served in a kebab-chair (so funny) in the "restaurant". chicken or veal was aviable, i prefered the chicken.
