DUBAI TRAVEL GUIDE

Dubai is a really magical place to visit. The city's skyscrapers will make you stare at the buildings in awe. Not just the buildings, each and every thing there is something out of the ordinary. The buildings are so tall that you can walk in between them without the hot sun scorching you in some places. Almost each and every building glitters in the night time giving a mesmerising look.

BEST TIME TO VISIT DUBAI

The best time to visit Dubai is between November to February when the temperature is quite pleasant. During this time, it is possible to walk in the day time without much discomfort. Even then, almost everything is air conditioned and hence you can easily skip walking outside air conditioning. The tourist season normally begins during this time and so be sure to book your hotels and flights early.

 

HOW MANY DAYS SHOULD YOU STAY?

Coming on to how many days is sufficient for a visit here, I will say that even a month of travel is not enough !! You heard me right !! Still, that's just not possible and feasible, so I will recommend to stay here a bare minimum of 7 days. Even 5 days will do but you will have to hurry up to watch everything. I stayed in Dubai for 10 days and felt quite sad while returning back because I had not watched everything !!

 

 

 

 

CURRENCY

The currency in use in the UAE Dirham (also called the AED). 1 AED is approximately INR 20 or so at present rates (December 2019). You can take US Dollars, Euro, Pound and even Indian Rupee to exchange for AED while in the UAE. There are many currency exchanges available in malls as well as other places. It is always advisable to take a major currency while travelling abroad. I always take US Dollars because any leftover currency can be used for my next trip. If you want to buy UAE Dirham or any other currency, then I will highly recomment BOOKMYFOREX.COM because they provide currency and forex cards at great prices.

ACCOMMODATION

 

Hotels are quite expensive in UAE. Thus, I will suggest you to stay in AirBnB which is quite cheaper compared to hotels. Plus, most AirBnB's are situated at excellent locations with great views.
