Dubai - to go or not to go?

Jump to last reply

My partner and I have been considering visiting Dubai for the last few years and may have an opportunity to go for a reasonable price in the next few weeks. I'm really interested in seeing it for myself, having heard so much about it, and with the Middle East remaining a place neither of us have visited before. We're an unmarried couple - would that present any problem at all with regards to staying in a hotel together? Another issue is having enough to do - we'd only be staying a maximum of 3 nights, but do not have a massive budget. Other people who have visited Dubai seem to have spent lots of money on shopping. I'm interested in visiting the Mall of the Emirates just to see it, but can't really afford to buy much there. Would it be an option to go to the beach in March/April? I understand temps are already pretty high. I've started to research but any personal tips/opinions would be greatly appreciated!
