  • really like to look at a series of museums that are in the same area. On the site pravitelstaa in Dubai stated that museums are open. Actually the territory enclosed by a fence, and works there is only one building in which vystavlenotneskolko paintings and the Café serves delicious coffee with white chocolate for 16 dirham.

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.
