How to see Dubai on a budget

Known for being an expensive holiday destination due to its huge wealth, grand buildings and high-end shopping opportunities, a visit to Dubai doesn’t necessarily have to be avoided if you need to travel on a modest budget.


There are plenty of things you can do in this great place without having to part with lots of your hard earned cash, and it also works well as a stopover if you are travelling onto somewhere further and fancy visiting Dubai on the way.


Getting around

Once you get to Dubal you might feel inclined to hail a taxi to take you to where you need to go, especially after a tiring flight. However, the metro system costs just a couple of pounds for the whole day so this a much cheaper way to get around, and it means that you can spend time exploring too.


Eating out

Chances are that the luxurious restaurants found in Dubai are going to draw you in, but by avoiding these and heading for places which are a bit more rustic and local you will save money and get to enjoy a bit more of the culture of this wonderful destination too. If your budget will stretch to one night of fancy eating you might like to try doing this for the experience as it will definitely be one that you won’t forget.
