There have been so many people who have told me that Dubai does not have much to offer. I was duped! There is more than one thing to do in this city for every age group. Let me quickly do that in pointers and you can bless me later ???? But before that here’s what we did in terms of stay and food.
Flights: Jet Airways to Dubai from Chennai and return from Sharjah to Chennai via Air India.
Area of Stay: Deira
No: of Days: 4N/5D (including one day in Abu Dhabi)
Hotel: Eureka Hotel – Decent place to stay. Location is convenient. Could explore better options if available. We did not find decent hotels at decent rates. we travelled in the peak season and every hotel we liked was very expensive.
Eateries: There are plenty of options for vegetarians to experiment when in Dubai. Karama is one area that we wanted to experiment but unfortunately, couldn’t. There are a lot of small Indian chat shops near the Old Souk.
Total Expenses in Dubai (Visa+OTB+Entry+Stay+Food+Shopping+Flights etc): Rs. 1,30,000 / under 2000$.
There are not just malls in this city like most of the people claim. A summary about this city from me goes like this.
