Dubai – home of world records. Home of the tallest building in the world, home of the world’s biggest aquarium in a mall, home of the only 7 star hotel in the world. It is just a matter of time before they will break another world record. Visit the desert, ski in a mall, watch the view from the tallest building in the world – the sky is the limit

Destination guide: Dubai

Accommodation:  There aren’t really any dorms in Dubai. Expect to pay at least Dhs 109-163 (US$30-45) for a dorm or a single room and from about US$70-80 for a double/twin. As far as I know there is only one place which has female dorms. When I visited Dubai I stayed in Avenue Hotel with my mum which was good and nice place that I would stay in again. We got a good price due to the low season. In general I would recommend staying in Deira because it seemed more authentic and it was a nice area. Otherwise should the couchsurfing community be quite big in the Middle East 🙂

Food: Eating can be fairly cheap compared to the hotel prices. There are plenty of different kinds of food. Try a kebab/shawarma (bread fill with meat, salad and dressing), taboulleh (a bulgur salad with parsley and mint) or a biryani (a spiced rice dish with chicken or lamb), but you can get all kinds of food

Transportation: There isn’t a lot of public transportation in Dubai, but you will be able to find a lot of taxis here (beware unofficial taxis will offer you trips for “almost the same price as an official taxi” – but they wouldn’t the price is way higher, unofficial taxis are often big 4WD cars). You will be able to find a few buses and a metro system. Prices for the metro – an unlimited day pass cost Dhs 14 (US$4) and a single ride cost Dhs 2-8 (Us$0.6-2.2) while the bus cost Dhs 2. The metro also passes through the airport

Budget for Dubai:

If you will be staying in cheap accommodation (sharing a twin/double with another person), eat three meals a day (at least one of them being street food), buying two liters of water, using a bit of money on transportation, then you should be able to live for approx. Dhs 183 or US$50/day.

Siden jeg var barn har jeg drømt om at tage ud og rejse. I år 2011 tog jeg for første gang afsted på en længere rejse. Det endte med at blive seks måneders solorejse og siden har jeg blot forsat med at rejse. Jeg elsker kultur, at se steder som jeg ikke har set før og mødet med de lokale. Jeg rejser sjældent med en guidebog eller kort, da jeg er ret god til at finde vej og elsker at gå på opdagelse. Til gengæld er også jeg utrolig god til at miste mine ting og burde snart indberegne erstatning for mistede ting i mine budgetter....

Tak fordi du læser med!
