Your tips Buy a copy of Dubai Time Out to check out bargains in restaurants and bars. Take the safari trip - brilliant day out and really good value. Buy a metro ticket and hop on and off the stations at your will. Metro is clean, reliable and runs to all of the malls as well as to the less commercialised areas of Dubai. City Bus tour was great for pointing out the main sites and good to help decide where you would like to spend more time. Dhow boat across the creek was memorable and very cheep!
Had a wonderful time in Dubai, weather was great and it was the perfect blend of city and beach holiday. Dubai also caters for travellers on differing budgets - yes, it can be very expensive but if on a budget there are great deals to be had in the many restaurants and bars. It is also co clean - puts the UK to shame!!!
