Before embarking on the much-anticipated Dubai trip, here are certain things you need to keep in mind during the planning stage:
Climate: The best time to visit Dubai would be the winter months that last from November to April. The pleasant weather would allow you to explore Dubai to your heart's content. We, at Travelxploria, would advise you to avoid the unbearably hot summer months. Most of the outdoor activities would be restricted owing to the simmering heat waves. However, there is a heavy influx of tourists during January and February because of the spectacular Dubai Shopping Festival that brings the city to life.
Accommodation: The quality of your accommodation depends on your budget and how much you're willing to splurge. For budget travelers, places like Bur Dubai (Old City) and Deira would be most preferable. These places have a distinct old-world charm and character that is missing in the modern part of the city.
If you want to live in the midst of all action, then choose Downtown. It's the most gorgeous part of the city that is home to some of the tallest skyscrapers in the city including the Burj Khalifa, high-end restaurants, fancy boulevards, posh clubs and expensive shops. Being one of the most reputed travel agencies in Kolkata, our Travelxploria team makes arrangement for your accommodation thereby ensuring that your stay is a pleasant and memorable one.
Culture: Having a profoundly strong Arab influence, the culture of Dubai is deeply rooted in Islam and Arabic traditions as evident in the architecture, cuisine, attire, music and art that have shaped up Dubai over the years. However, there is a great deal of religious freedom and tolerance. For a westerner, there might be a bit of culture shock once they land in Dubai.
Given the conservative fabric of the society, it would be advisable that you wear modest clothing and abstain from displaying affection in public places. The best time to experience Dubai's vibrant culture would be the holy month of Ramadan where you can join in the Iftar buffets and participate in local traditional arrangements.
Festivals: Dubai celebrates its festivals with vim and vigor. As a tourist, you surely wouldn't want to miss witnessing the electrifying atmosphere amidst such maddening celebrations. Our Travelxploria team would recommend that you plan your travels around some of the most famous festivals in the city. Participate in the widely popular Dubai Shopping Festival that displays the extravagant face of Dubai. You can expect unbelievable discounts on high-end, international brands.
Plenty of recreational activities are available such as concerts, game shows and ramp walks. Music lovers can look forward to the Dubai International Jazz Festival where one can witness live performances of jazz icons from across the globe. The week-long food festival, Festival of Taste allows you to pamper the foodie in you, as globally renowned chefs prepare their signature dishes and engage with the audience.
Cuisine: Thanks to a growing number of distinguished Emirati restaurants in Dubai, the local Emirati cuisine is finally getting the recognition that it deserves. Be it the amazing bread or Arab coffee or sumptuous pastry and camel burger – everything about Dubai’s rich cuisine is unique to the taste-buds. Don't forget to try the hot dumplings named Luqaimat with some Arab coffee. Knafeh, a pastry dish hot favorite among locals, is famous for its unique sweet crispy flavor.
Just for once, savor the distinct aroma of Arabic coffee that is made with lightly roasted beans. Its taste would linger for a long time and you'd surely come back home with a handful of these. Have you ever tried eating camel meat? Here, in Dubai, stuffed camel, roasted with herbs and spices, is one of the most popular dishes. Try the authentic street-food as they offer local flavor and are easy on the pocket compared to fanciful restaurants.
Shopping: Touted as one of Asia's best shopping destinations, Dubai is a dream come true for a shopaholic. The stunning Dubai Mall, located in the downtown area of Dubai, is home to some of the most famous international luxury brands selling everything from jewelry to clothing to gadgets and decor. In fact, there are several famous malls like the Mercato Shopping Mall which houses world-famous couture brands and fashion houses.
If you're fond of gold jewelry, Dubai is the place to be. Famed for its superior quality and craftsmanship, Dubai's gold jewelry is loved the world over and is considered a wise investment. Also, don't forget to soak in the aromatic wonder of Arab perfumes which offers a rich and layered fragrance.
Visa Processing: Depending on the purpose and duration of your trip, you can apply for a short-term or a long-term visa. The UAE issues visas on arrival for Indian nationals having a normal passport and a valid UK or US visa. This visa is valid for a maximum of 14 days. Otherwise, you can apply online for a 14 day or a 30 day tourist visa. The processing time is generally 5 days.
Connectivity: Being the hub of industry, commerce and tourism, Dubai is well-connected to all major airports across the world. A major chunk of Indian businessmen and tourists travel from the metropolitan cities of Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Kolkata. There are around 64 flights daily between Mumbai and Dubai, out of which 11 are direct and 53 connecting. Similarly, 68 flights operate between Delhi and Dubai on a daily basis. At Travelxploria, we arrange Dubai tours from all these cities at reasonable rates.
Places to see in Dubai:
Burj Khalifa: The hype around the world's tallest, man-made freestanding structure is understandable. At a staggering height of 828 meters, The Burj Khalifa is thrice the height of Eiffel Tower and twice that of the Empire State Building. It represents the architectural excellence and economic superiority that Dubai has achieved in the last couple of decades. Millions of visitors flock here to see one of the most prestigious and recognized skyscrapers. Inside the building you'd find lavish restaurants, hotels, shops, clubs and gymnasiums. The breathtaking view of the city skyline from the world's highest outdoor observatory is certainly not to be missed.
Palm Jumeirah: One of the greatest engineering and architectural marvels jutting out of the Persian Gulf, Palm Jumeirah is a man-made archipelago built in the shape of a palm tree. It's a haven for tourists who can't seem to get enough of the luxury and entertainment that is on offer along the entire length of the Jumeirah. It's a world within a world adorned by water parks, plush hotels and restaurants, beach clubs, boozy brunches and what not!
Desert Safari: Dubai is synonymous with the vast expanse of sand dunes that one can explore while undertaking the famous Desert Safari. Herein, in the heart of the golden desert, lies the soul of Dubai. One may occasionally sight a gazelle, wild cat or monitor lizard while covering the desert. The unparalleled beauty of the landscape makes you want to pause time for a while. Stay in the night camp and savor the ambience of the place without any rush. In fact, the assortment of cultural programmes lined up all through the evening complement the safari evenings, ensuring that there is no dearth of fun and entertainment for guests.

As you are introduced to Dubai's stunning landmarks, Dhow Cruise presents a scenic beauty of the Arabian Gulf, while you are being serenaded by the cool breeze and lovely ambience. Engaging performances and a lavish dining experience can be expected as you sail along at a relaxed pace.
