  • Got here by accident, the boat was sailing to Cry and asked to land here. It is another world. Piers fishermen who sailed with fishing and sell small small fish, very strange, even old, ships and vessels. In a Word, exotics. This, rather than a luxury life. Not Dubai though.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
