Day 1

https://travelfudie.wordpress.com/

On a fine day I was surfing through travel websites and suddenly I found a deal on ixigo.com that had return flights from Delhi to Dubai for just 10k. I suddenly asked my friends for a plan and we finally came to conclusion for Dubai vacation.

So we decided not to use any services of travel agents and prepare whole trip ourselves.

On first day we had flight at 1-45pm so we reached airport @10-15 am and after all checks we were ready for travel. We had airport lounge access so we had lunch at plaza premium lounge.

After landing @Dubai airport we took travel card from the airport and took bus that headed to our hotel in Deira i.e Africana Hotel. It was a nice hotel with little amenities and cost as well. The staff was also good. After half hour break we again decided to visit some place for evening.

From there we took metro from Baniyas square metro station to Mall of Emirates. One can directly enter the mall from metro itself. We had dinner @pizza hut and we came back to the hotel. And this is how our day ended.

Day 2

So on this day we took Groupon deal at 175aed p.p for Musandam and were ready for travel at this place.

We boarded metro from Baniyas metro station and landed at Al quasis metro. There is Dubai Grand hotel where our pickup was done.

From there musandam is 2 and half hour drive and after checking of visa they allow us to visit musandam as it is part of Oman.

When we reached musandam we were taken in ferry at around 11-30 pm. We were served welcome drinks in the ferry and after 1 hour drive with beautiful sea views we reached near a beach and there we had snorkeling, banana boat ride, fishing and cave visit. The experience was really great. We were also served lunch with different options as well. The views were really awesome. At 3-30 we again left the place for Dubai.

After that the bus dropped us @ around 8-30pm at Burjuman metro station and we took the metro for Burj Khalifa to watch the famous Dubai fountain. The fountain is worth watching located just below Burj Khalifa.

After this @ 10 pm we took metro towards Baniyas metro station. We had dinner in Deira at Malabar but the food was not good at all and that was a bad experience. Again we checked in to Emirates Hotel in Deira and the hotel was not at all good and staff was also bad. They were not courteous.

After that we took cab to do some shopping in Meena bazaar. We purchased perfumes from there and you can't judge the price. But I would recommend to do shopping from Deira as there one can find wholesale shops.

After that we had flight at 7-20pm so we reached airport @ 5 pm and after all checks I waited at this lounge where I had a great buffet. I left Dubai with memorable lifetime experiences. The trip cost me around 55k.

And also here I complete my first review.
