									3 Amazing Tips for a Great Holiday in Dubai


Dubai is one of the busiest of cities in the Middle East. There are so
many things to do in Dubai the whole year round. Every inch of Dubai is a
marvel of old palaces, village towns, and the skyscrapers and lavish
hotels. When any one plans a Dubai holiday, there are never ending
activities that one can get to experience in Dubai. Although there are
tons to do in Dubai as a tourist, there are these top three tips to put
in your list when you decide to go on a Dubai excursion.

1 - Shop till You Drop

Dubai houses several high-end boutiques and brand shops, jewelry, spice
markets, electronic technology products and many more. When you are the
type of tourist that is into shopping for good finds rather than going
out and looking at cultural stuffs, then Dubai is your shopping heaven-
no sales tax! The city transforms itself into one big market when the
event named "Dubai Shopping Festival" takes place the whole month of
January every year. You can stay in one of the hotels in Deira where you
will be near the gold and spice souk at Bur Dubai where café's and more
shops are there too.

2 - Cruising through the Dhow

Your trip in Dubai is not complete without being able to ride the dhow.
This is typically a wooden, Arab sailing vessel that traders used to
merchandise their goods such as fruits that come from the Arabian
Peninsula and then from parts of Pakistan and India, and including
Eastern part of Africa.

If you travel with your loved one, it is best to book a dhow cruise that
sets sail at supper time at around 8:30 PM to 10:30 PM. Experience having
dinner on board the dhow while listening to Arabian music on a night
under the full moon and the stars. Get to choose from sumptuous meals of
an intercontinental buffet dinner. Through this cruise, you will get to
tour Dubai and marvel at its rich past and modern architecture- a
quintessential symbol of Dubai.

3 - Journey down Memory Lane

To get an insider's scoop about how the city of Dubai started and worked
its way up to one of the most famous cities in the world, is by visiting
the Dubai Museum. Here, one is being shown about the history of the place
from being a Bedouin and pearl diver territory all the way to the modern
Dubai that is today. The museum is located at the restored Al Fahidi
Fort- one of the oldest architecture attractions in the city.

Take a trip to the late Sheik Saeed Al Maktoum's House at Burj Nagar and
witness how royalty is like in Dubai. These are one of the heritage
places frequently visited by countless tourists every year. If you are
interested in what Bedouin life is like, then you can go the heritage
village at Hatta situated about 115 kilometers south of Dubai- up on the
Royal Hatta Mountain.
