Hit the Shopping malls
Unlike what most people think, shopping in Dubai is not just for the rich. You will have an intriguing shopping experience even though some shops may be out of a backpacker’s reach. Dubai malls might not be your thing if you are used to shopping in Paris, but you will definitely get a bargain here especially on electronic gadgets. Shopping doesn’t necessarily mean you have to spend so window shoppers are also assured of fun galore, in fact maybe that’s a better idea – leave the credit cards at home!
Attend a champagne brunch
Although there is a liberal flow of alcohol in this Muslim state, it can only be served in a hotel. With an estimated 450 hotels rest assured the drinks won’t stop coming. If you happen to be in Dubai on a Friday then you might be lucky to experience the champagne brunch, it is basically an alcohol overindulgence event, where hotels open their doors to patrons to partake in overdrinking and overfeeding.
Check out Burj al Arab
Truth is you’d think you really can’t go higher than five stars when rating a hotel but the existence of a seven star establishment in Dubai makes you want to see it to judge for yourself. With gold undercoats, dancing fountains and fireworks to announce arrival of VVIP guests, the Burj is not subtle by any standards.it will cost you an arm and a leg to stay but no charges for just looking from the outside. It’s a marvel and no one will be surprised to catch you staring. If you need to get in but can’t afford the rooms, you can book a table for a meal at the hotel’s expensive eateries. This is also where you get your photo clicks/camera rolling.
