Travelling gives you a better hands on experience than reading in books. To give you more hands on experience for your Dubai to Nantes flight here are a few interesting places.
The richest city amongst the Emirates, the one with record breaking achievements, risen from dust to sky high glory, these are few of the accolades given to Dubai. Dubai was a barren desert city earlier, although the city has changed dramatically, but the weather remains the same, very hot in summers and pleasant in winters. There is a lot more to this city than the record breaking architecture. For instance the Dubai Creek, the S shaped creek is a place bustling with modern boats busy in fishing or trading and the traditional dhows bustling with tourists sailing on the waters. The Deira is a traditional area with Souks and traditional eateries criss crossing the streets. For a taste of actual
Dubai one must visit this place. Bur Dubai is the place to be awed by the historical buildings here. It houses the Al Fahidi Historical District, the Diwan, and the Dubai Museum which is an old fort.
Jumeirah Mosque is the most pictured and allows non-Muslim visitors too. Bastakia- Al Bastakiah dates back to 1890 and has many old buildings and towers. Many art galleries, boutique hotels, cafes and restaurants and local handicraft shops make it a delightful place to visit.
Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building has an observatory at the top which gives a bird’s eye view of the city. It is so tall that, people staying on the topmost floors see the setting sun for a longer period of time, than those staying on the lower levels. Burj Al Arab, the world’s seven star hotel has a thin sheet of 24 carat gold covering the ceilings and walls.
Dubai International Airport is amongst the largest and busiest airports in the world. The airport duty free shopping is world famous. Multicuisine restaurants, cafes and coffee shops are the jewels in the dining sector. The Terminal 3 is the world’s largest and is exclusive for Emirates passengers.
Staying in Dubai is a world apart. Dubai International Terminal hotel, Le Meridian Dubai, Al Bustan Rotana, and Jumeirah Creek are a few names for high end customers. For the budget hotels one can choose from Premier Inn, Fortune Plaza, Orchid Hotel, and Nihal Hotel
