Clubs or Venues

by CLove005

Can you recommend a place to meet quality people and enjoy the night life after work (in Dubai).

Re: Clubs or Venues

by Donna_in_India

Hi Christopher - welcome to VT! A couple of suggestions for you... pick up a copy of Time Out Dubai magazine which should have lots of information, check out VT memember JessH's Duabi page - and other VT Dubai pages as well (just type 'Dubai' in the destinations box at the top right of this page), and join some of the local expats groups....

Re: Clubs or Venues

by colin_bramso

I guess you mean night clubs or pubs and there are many of them, all slightly different and dotted all over the city and New Dubai. The only way to find the ones that suit you, and aren't too far to travel, is to visit them. You can check out Time Out and What's On magazines for listings of them.

Re: Clubs or Venues

by Dan30

I can see VT members I have answer this question, I will just add one link. Time out Dubai has good venues.

have fun.

Re: Clubs or Venues

by Donna_in_India

The magazine (Time Out) usually has more listings than the website. They want you to buy the magazine. :-)

Thanks donna for tip

Re: Clubs or Venues

by JessH

Hi :-)

As Donna said (thanks Donna :-) I've got quite a number of Nightlife tips listed on my Dubai page.

Not sure what kind of nightlife you like.
Not sure what you mean with "quality people".

Just to add: there are also plenty of good night spots in the Souq Al Bahar (Burj Khalifa).

Re: Clubs or Venues

You can try the Aviation Club. The Aviation Club has it all from dining, pub and even spa. :)

Re: Clubs or Venues

by JessH

Another good place are The Pyramids at Wafi City. You've got plenty of restaurants and bars, food is good, service is great, plenty of al fresco options as well.

There's also the Souk Madinat (at Madinat Jumeirah, next to Burj Al Arab). Plenty of night spots, gets really busy on a Thursday and Friday.

Travel Tips for Dubai

From T3 to T1 Dubai Airport

by ara2

Hi All

Thanks for your answer. I did try to search the info online, to no avail. But I went to Glasgow airport yesterday to fetch a friend, and take the opp. to ask the Emirates desk re T3. The lady said that there are walkways from T3 to T1 so we just simply walk through it..How far..I dont know..but certainly they should be well connected.

I have e-mailed the Dubai airport cust service but yet to reply. Will let others know once I got the info.

Thanks again

Roundabouts

by uglyscot

As in other Middle Eastern Countries I've visited, roundabouts are made into a feature. I have seen them in Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan as well as Dubai.
Usually the feature is an inanimate objects or represent features of the country as in Qatar.
Here are some of the more interesting ones I've seen on this latest visit [2007]

Desert Adventure

by Rinjani

Going to the desert is a great experience. And while you are visiting Dubai, don’t miss this chance. The perfect time to explore the desert is from December to March, where the temperature is cool and the weather is perfect. Early in the morning is great to see the early live on the desert. Or, you can also go later in the midday and stay in the desert to watch the sunset.

You can book a desert safari trip organized by travel agents, or if you fancy off road, plan a trip with your friends. If you are a first timer, it’s highly recommended to go with experienced person who knows how to drive in the desert. Or you can book desert driving course (usually one or two day course) to learn tips and tricks driving in the desert.

Four wheel drive car? Absolutely. Never go alone to the desert. It is always better to have several cars go in the trip, in case you get stuck.

UAE has many nice places to explore. Fossil Rock, Hanging Garden, Khutwa, etc. You can buy “Off-Road in the Emirates” by Dariush Zandi in the book store for your places and the Do & Don’ts reference.

But if you love to enjoy desert adventure without hassle, ring the travel agents. Usually their organized trip including belly dancer performance, henna design, camel riding, etc.

Buy Gold and Blink Blink at Gold Souk

by Rinjani about Gold Center

Even you are not gold digger, you will love this area. Gold Souq is one of tourist destinations in Dubai. Located in Deira (opposite of bus terminal) Gold Souq has many shops sell gold, diamonds and jewellery.

You can visit Gold Land for the big gold market. But I also love to walk around in the souq. Especially in the evening, I love to see the yellow light as reflection light of the gold displayed in window of the shops.

The interesting part is the design of the jewellery. They also offer the ethnic design of Arabic, Indian to Africa. Mostly, the shops accept credit card. And there is also money changer here.

by call_me_rhia

One great way to see Dubai from a different perspective is to travel bz abra (water taxi) on Dubai Creek. You can simply just cross the creeck for 500 fils or else you can rent a boat for yourself and travel up and down the city at leisure; the price here really depends on your baraganing skills. The best time to make such "cruise"? Just before sunset - when the buildings reflect the light of the sun going down, and the entire city looks like it's made of gold.
