Does having a holiday require high budget as it is thought?
You planned a vacation to Dubai and wanted its budget to be very high, then Dubai travel for 299$ including aeroplane expenses is not impossible…
But if you like, it is possible to lodge in Dubai where the world’s limited in number 5 stars and architecturally incomparable Dubai hotels are existed for 2500$, 3000$ and even as far as 5000$ if you can afford.
But if your aim is to buy electronic appliance, you do not need to spend so much money for this. The reasons for Dubai’s to be chosen when it comes to the technology are its being close to the Far East and being sold the goods imported from Far East here in a duty-free and tax-free way. That’s why Dubai is the most ideal place to buy mobile phone…
Of course you can buy various electronic appliances apart from mobile phone; cameras, laptops… But if you happen to go to Dubai and need mobile phone we advise you to steer for them firstly. Then you can steer for another electronic appliance …
On account of living in Dubai is not that expensive, you have the chance of tasting any countries’ cuisine with very affordable prices…
Dubai has barely public transportation even there is no such a chance. We have two advices:
- Either you can rent a car with reasonable conditions and access anywhere in Dubai very easily.
- You can engage a taxi with very ridiculous prices… For example, you can wonder around Dubai from one end to another end with just 10-12$ maximum cost…
It means travelling to Dubai is not so expensive as it is thought to be…
What should we watch for when we are in Dubai as a tourist?
The United Arab Emirates are consisted of total of 8 emirates. Of course these have a certain number of way of life, cultivations and traditions according to the each emirate.
Dubai is the modernist emirate among them… For example; Şaja (another emirate of United Arab Emirates) has more though rules and more secluded… Even, it is such a secluded emirate that it is forbidden to drink alcohol in the hotels in this emirate.
Abudabi is an emirate located between Şaja and Dubai but the people in Dubai preserve their modern, far-sighted traditions and customs having high living standards apart from their traditions and customs…
That’s why, as Turkish people when we arrive there, we can have the chance of wearing whatever we like without having no difficulty. We are not having any difficulty just because we are Turkish because we go to a country whose people are Muslim.
As in the case of other Muslim countries, people are very hospitable against Turkish people, because religious fraternity is in the foreground. As you know Dubai is a shopping paradise, it is one of your aims already to go there. Bargaining is possible but it should be in reasonable limits. I mean it is not possible to buy a good with a tenth of its price as you do in the Far East. That’s why it is advisable to keep bargaining at reasonable limits.
How to go to Dubai?
You decided to go to Dubai travel, you are very lucky because there is already 3 airlines directly going to Dubai (from Istanbul, from Europe).
Airway communication; you have the chance of flying Dubai at the various hours of the day via Dubai’s domestic airline Emirate in the first instance, and also Turkish Airlines and Singapur Airlines. Flight time is approximately 4,5 hours; it is not a long time.
Do we need a visa to go to Dubai?
Yes, we do. But it is not required detailed visa transactions like Europe, Australia and America. You just xeros specific pages of your passport and give them to your travel agent and airline; and these are sent to Dubai.
These are translated into English in Dubai and then your visa is sent to you as a photocopy. All you need to do to enter this country is to put this photocopy into your passport. This will make wondering around the country easier for you.
If you planned a Dubai travel, you must know that you should just lead to Dubai. Of course not for the sun and for the sea. Because on account of the life there is planned to be cheap, 4-days as minimum or 5-days as maximum vacation will be an ideal duration for you.
Which months are the most ideal ones to go to Dubai?
If you want to go to Dubai firstly you should bear in mind these; Do not ever think of going to Dubai when Europe is experiencing summer. If you want to go there in such hot days that even it is possible to cook egg on the walkways in 50 degree and you feel strong enough to bear such a hot weather, it is not the case of course. The most ideal time to go to Dubai is when it is winter in Europe.
Because it is the time when the desert climate and the hot weather in Dubai is at minimum levels and equivalent with 20-25 degrees. And it is very available for shopping. December, January, February, and march are the most ideal months to go to Dubai. Then the most ideal months to go to there are winter months.
Dubai is always crowded in 12 months of a year if you like or not. Because people infest in Dubai to buy themselves the closest and cheapest electronic appliances. And for this the weather is not the case. On account of gigantic shopping malls having air-conditioner, it is not the case to be effected by the weather in Dubai. That’s why Dubai is crowded in 12 months of a year.
How is the cuisine of Dubai?
You have not a problem like famishing in Dubai. We can say this easily. Because Dubai has not its own cuisine.
Although Dubai is integrated with arab culture, on account of being one of the United Arab Emirates is very touristic, it will be very easy for you to find world cuisine there.
If you like a cuisine which is very similar to Turkish cuisine, then I advise you to prefer the restaurants in which you can find typical arab foods and also hummus, kebab, durum.
Be sure with this that you will not have starvation problem.
