Planning One Budget-Friendly Day in Dubai
09 July 2024

Summer vacations or not, people from across the globe are traveling all the time. One of the busiest airports in the world is Dubai airport. Dubai terminals are full of travelers and tourists who are either there to visit Dubai or have a layover flight. Some people end up having a stopover of about a day. As much as hanging out at the airport may seem like fun, especially if you land at Dubai Terminal 3, you can still opt to visit the city and enjoy it in a very budget-friendly way. Get to witness the happenings of the desert city even if it seems like a short time to do so.

Dubai TourDubai tourist visa is very easy to get. Your Dubai visa will be issued in no time, and you could be on your way to explore the city. It would be relaxing for the second part of your trip. You would reach your destination fully rested and with your mind at ease.

You can easily plan a full-day trip to Dubai and get to some of the most popular tourist places. I will be sharing an easy one that I preferred when I went for a short Dubai visit. Visiting Dubai when summer is in full swing has the biggest perk, which is that it is the cheapest time to visit Dubai. You do not have to spend a lot which seems to be the popular opinion.

  • Book yourself a room in any of the leading Dubai hotels in old Dubai. This means you can find affordable rooms in the Deira area mainly. The best part about this is that you are also close to Dubai heritage. There is a rich history of Dubai that most people may not be aware of among the high-rises and latest technology surrounding the city today.
  • To get out of the airport and make your way to where you would be residing, you can choose from any of the commute options that you have. You can take the Dubai Metro, which is the cheaper option. But, Dubai Taxi is the more convenient option. This is because most metro stations are not near where you need to get off. The taxi would drop you exactly where you need to be.
  • Staying in Deira means you are in the center of all the historical places that Dubai is famous for. Shop around for the cheapest items or make your way to the gold souk, spice souk, and even the textile souk. You would also find some fantastic bargains in the open markets.
  • Dubai foods are something you do want to try. The many types of world cuisines and Arabic dishes available in Dubai are not something you would find anywhere else in the world. There are numerous shopping and eating options. You may also head on to the JBR Walk or can even go to the beach from here.
  • You cannot go to Dubai and not visit any of the malls in Dubai. If you have time at night, you can just dedicate the day to one of the largest malls in the world. Standing proudly with over 1200 brands to shop from and from over 150 plus eateries to choose and eat from, Dubai mall is the most popular mall in Dubai. You can find many fun activities and lots of delicious food to eat.

It is the perfect place to be, even if it is only for a day.

If you are traveling with family or friends, you can visit Dubai's top attractions like Dubai Aquarium and the Burj Khalifa. You can also make your way to Ferrari World.
