Dubai / UAE - April 16, 2015, 10:12 AM

I have to go back to Dubai for business (second time in the last month). This time I expect to have a day or 2 of downtime, and would like to fill it.

Anyone have experienced advice to offer for things to see / do that won't break the bank?

I think he means the escort services there are waaaayyyyy expemsive. The prostitutes over there drive range rovers lol. If you are sitting at a light, and a hot girl in a nice car is checking u out, dont get overly excited bc shes prolly a prostitute, ask me how i know .

I would suggest doing the desert tour. U can do ahakf day but id suggest doing the full day which involves sleeping in the deseert. its basically a party in the desert, foood, music, hookah and belly dancing and tearig up the dunes. Not expensive either

Friend just got back from a Dubai vacation last week.
There's not a whole lot one can do without $$$.
It's a desert and everything has a price.

A couple of shiny tall buildings you can look at. Some bazaars you can visit and haggle at. The sea and beach is nice.

If there's a social / event scheduled you can usually get into those quite easily. There was a Ferrari convention at the Ritz Dubai where he was and he got a pass into some of the weekends events.

k, so far my take away is "desert tour". that sounds pretty good

don't think i've got time for the overnight, but 1/2 day might be doable.

The desert tours are good, just go with something well known. Stay off the metro, just use taxis. The Mall is nice to walk around in. Theres a small aquarium and ice rink inside along with a movie theater and arcade up top. Not to mention the Ducati coffee shop. If you want to hit the top of the Burj buy your tickets now.

That shit is expensive. If you have the money to spend, take a quick ride to Abu Dhabi. Thats the real UAE. Dubai is the tourist trap.

If you go to Abu Dhabi Brendan, I'll get one of my boys to meet up with you and show you around. Hit me up on FB if you do.
