Amidst the sky-scraping Burj Khalifa and a series of luxury shopping malls, is the grand city emirate of the United Arab Emirates, ‘Dubai.’  The city is so developed that it is considered as one of the leading cities of the world. Apart from being a top business hub, Dubai is a fascinating place to travel and explore. Located in the country of warm weather, it dwells between the deserts. If you are looking for a superbe holiday spot, Dubai is your place. Everything you might think of can be mixed and found in this amazing place; from white sand beaches, to amazing skyscraper, to miles long desters. Counted as an expensive place to visit, Dubai is the land of profound traditions and royalty. In the middle of the desert, Dubai has the sun at its hottest possible which makes the city life dehydrated without air conditioners. But, the pull of the city is so enthralling that every year; thousands of foreigners are seen arriving in Dubai.

Its well known that Dubai is an luxurious place therefore might be more expensive that you are used with. This fact is true, but only if you go to some places where are well known  for that, like a famous night club or for example if you go to dine in Burj al Arab hotel. For example, we had lunch at an American spot with gorgeous views on the beach called Eggspectation and our brunch consisting of eggs, coffees and croissants costs us around 30€ for two persons.  In the evening we eat at an amazing restaurant with arabic kitchen and astonishing view of Burj Khalifa and the check did not exceed 60€. If you are living in Europe you will find that the prices are kind of like home. Of course you can make it as expensive as you like, but I just want to tell you that you can visit Dubai on a budget too.

Another thing what had me surprised me was how open and accepting are the locals of Dubai when tourists are visiting their country. Majorly, the city has Islamic roots with most of the population being Muslims. Although, when at the beach for example, i captured this where a lady wearing a burka and another one wearing a swimsuit were sharing the beach without any troubles.

At Dubai Marina beach you can find a sign with courtesy policy you must follow if you don’t want to  disrespect the locals. The rules i did not find them more than the usual common sense which everybody must have in any country they visit.
