  • Beautiful landscaped park, which is very close to the Metro. There are several BBQ places and you can relax here by the busy Dubai. As always, admission to the Park costs 5 AED in Dubai. Definitely the new highlight of the Park is the Dubai frame. Unfortunately, he was not finished during our visit (as of 25 November). When it gets dark, the new building is fantastic lit. There is a second part of the Park by there are two attractions. This part but extra.

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.
