Dubai- travelling this december- advice?!Watch
I am going alone, and don't really know much about the area so any advice would be appreciated!
There's also bastakia around there which is a historical site. It has a museum that's very cheap so worth a look.
Around a hour car journey from dubai you can go to a place surrounded by mountains where you swim with wild dolphins (the name escapes me atm).
There is so much more to dubai then the initial glitz and glamor, you will absolutely love it. Visit TripAdvisor forums (dubai section obviously) for the most invaluable information.
Enjoy...you really will.
Ok so take a western approach but take care not to offend
You hear all sorts of trouble about being even caught with aspirin at customs so check the rules and your luggage
