Thousands of thoughts came into my mind while thinking and deciding about the place that where I have to go for Solo trip. India or abroad? Is it safe to go abroad alone or not? If yes, then which country ? Is it safe to travel alone for a girl?

After surfing for plethora of options in India and outside too, I decided to plan for “Dubai”. The place where people never recommend you to go alone as numerous reasons of not visiting UAE country.

But, I wanted to go beyond my self limits and push myself to explore the new country where I have never been.

I researched about the places to visit , activities to do , culture to explore, things to do etc about the place.

The feeling of visiting a new place make me that happy that I didn’t even thought of the Iternary and no of days I should decide or think of visiting there.

Getting a Visa

The first thing I started searched for was Visa : Multiple options to apply for. Visa formalities don’t take more than 8000 Rs.

There are multiple Online sites available for applying to Dubai. You just need to submit your documents and within a 10days, you can easily get your VISA in hands. Make sure that you get tourist visa within a time as per your trip planning.

Flying to Dubai

After getting VISA for 45 Days as a tourist, the first thing that came in my mind was when to leave for journey. Though I was already so excited about my Solo trip, so I decided to fly in 3 days.

Booking a flight to Dubai costed me only Rs.12,000. You can easily save your money more by planning your trip before time and books your tickets prior to your journey.

So, I booked my tickets after 3 days of my visa arrival.

Number of Days for Journey

Though I was thinking to go for 5 or Max one week visit to Dubai. But, after checking the places for staying like hostel,hotel,air bnb etc. I decided to go for complete two weeks.

Going for two weeks was a big decision as many factors have to be considered like Budget,places to visit,staying options etc.

I decided the budget where I have to be strict and then I decided that yes I can go for 2 weeks trip to new country.

Staying Options

As I was going alone, so it was easy for me to look for any option that I am comfortable with.

I searched about places and luckily got the Dorms contact where local people used to stay.

I contacted them and booked my bed in one room.Though it was 6 people sharing room, but it was adjustable as it was spacious and I got the chance to stay with local people.

The rule over there is to pay for complete one month in that dormant so it was right decision of visiting there for 2weeks and explore more.

There was a kitchen too, so I could thought of saving more money on fooding too.
