Anyone not hearing the name of Dubai is next to impossible. It is one of the most popular and largest cities in UAE. Once you enter the city, slowly you will understand how beautifully the city manages to maintain a balance between old Dubai and new Dubai. Since it lies at the lap of Arabian desserts, it is expected that the summers will be much hotter than you can imagine. It is recommended that you make a visit to the city during the monsoon or at winters to avoid the humid and sweaty weather. Being one of the world’s rapidly growing economies, you can estimate how much you can get from the city.
You can begin your mornings from the Jumeirah Beach and then shift to the Ski Dubai in the afternoons. You are free to start off your day with whatever location you feel like but first things first. Know the city first. To get a total view of the city, run to the top of the Burj Khalifa. Okay, so it’s time that you look into the list of places one by one.
1. Dubai Mall:  Anyone who has previously visited Dubai and not entered the Dubai mall is something none have done. Considered as one of the largest stores in the world, the mall provides shelter to more than 1200 stores. Even though you do not want to buy anything, enter the largest retail store. Missing it is a sheer stupidity. It is advised to get hold of a map of the mall as soon as you enter it. It’ll really be of a great help to explore the mall. The best way you can reach here is by metro. The mall welcomes visitors from 10 a.m. and continues until midnight.

The island on which it is built consists of numerous high-class hotels. If possible you can make a stay at for a day. You need not worry about the lodging and breakfast, everything is available at your doorstep.
3. Jumeirah Beach: Coming out of the Burj Al Arab, the Jumeirah Beach is a walking distance destination. If you want to watch the sunrise or the sundown, nothing can be as satisfying as the beach.

At one side of the mosque flows the turquoise waters of Dubai Marina and at another side, the mosque is lit with orange lights to focus on the details of the architecture. Apart from other mosques in Dubai, the Jumeirah Mosque welcomes both Muslims and people from other religion as well. But before you enter the mosque, keep in mind to dress up decently. Come in full sleeves. Your legs should not be showing. Women need to cover their heads with scarves. If you are in dearth of traditional dress, the mosque is generous to provide you with some in exchange for some charges.

Whenever we go outside to a tourist destination we always look for something which will give us a home atmosphere feeling, and in this matter, no other city can beat Dubai

Feel like home with few best hotels: 

 

Dubai Marina

The best part of going somewhere is you are out of your home, but still, we all miss our home. When I went to Dubai my mom especially missed our home. But the luxurious hotels in Dubai help us to forget that we are in a hotel. We felt like we are in the home, the welcome, food, ambience gave the home like feeling. My mom loved the home like atmosphere, the food like homemade. What else a tourist want when they are in a different country, get the home like feeling. Whether it’s your home or hotel the first thing a person notice that it the entrance. The entrance was well arranged and decorated. The dim light, exotic flowers, beautiful seating arrangement was mind-blowing.

 

I didn’t expect this much but trust me you will fall in love with the ambience of the Dubai hotel The first time when you enter in the hotel Ms Lisa welcome us with flower and with a big smile on her face. Their service is so good that you will feel that you are the most important person for them. The hotel boy came and took our luggage to the room and asks us to follow him. The staff took us to the room. When we entered the room I was awestruck as the room gives us a vibe of home. The curtains, soothing colour, flowers, floor marble each and every decoration were eye-catching.

 

Excellent Value For Money:

 

Crowne Plaza Dubai looks old from outside but when you enter the hotel it will give you a good impression. It is a great place to stay if you have a budget. For everyone is not possible to afford five stars or seven hotel. This hotel will give you the same feel like another lavish hotel. We took the food option also from there. So I can comment on their food quality. In my vacation, I didn’t find any poor quality in their food. The presentation and the crockery all were perfect. My mom does not prefer spicy food. So we order simple food for her. Once my mom took the food she was very impressed by the food as the taste of the food was like homemade food still tasty. All the staff members are very friendly.

 

If you are a solo traveller then Saba hotel Dubai is the best option for you. We stayed there for three days only. Staffs are very obliging. Food was good. Especially when we travel we look for the bathroom, is it clean or not. The bathroom of the hotel was clean with marble floor, modern water system everything will blow your mind. As a tourist, I would like to give five out of five all these hotels.
