Hi To All
I dont think there is anything wrong with passing on info about cheaper deals. If anything it helps people. Most people that go abroad get charged high rates at tourist places. So good on to the people who pass on info where to get good deals and cheaper rates for hotels and trips an shoping places.
I myself have some info to pass on. And hope others will benifit. At the bottom i have listed a phone number, from where i booked my trips.
I have been to Dubai 3 times. And had a lovley time. The 1st time i booked my tours through the hilton hotel, where i was staying. It was heaven staying there. But i have to say the prices for tours were very expensive.
I was there for 2 weeks. I booked a safari and a dhow cruise. Both which i really enjoyed. Near to the end of my stay i found out from other people staying at the hotel, That they had booked tours from different companies. And yes they were much cheaper. For exactly the same thing.
So i took down the numbers. The 2nd and 3rd trips i made, i saved my money on the trips. And was able to go on more trips. I went on both the safari and dhow and also to hatta, abu dhabi, and wild wadi.
Also shopping can be expensive in the big malls.
So i discovered a place called Nasar Square, it is in deira. Kind of like a market. But with proper covered shops, just smaller than in the malls. I bought loads of stuff from there. One thing i was really impressed with was the shoes. I bought about 5 pairs, real leather and really soft. Cost about £7 each. So comfortable, you would be paying about £30-£50 in a department store, be it anywhere, dubai, usa , uk. So many other things are available, gifts souvinirs, clothes. You name it. Oh and pefumes, be careful though, the ones selling for about 10 dihrams are fake , but ones for 80 dirham plus are real.
And last of all tour trips. Dont book from hotels, ask around for cheaper deals. I booked mine from outside. I cant remember the company name but ill pass on the number anyway. 971-50- 2282887.
Hope this info is a help to anyone looking for cheaper deals. If you need any help , any questions, about places to go . Just ask.
I am planning to go to egypt next. If anyone has any tips, pass on please. Thanks
