In October 2015 we took Qantas flight QF8425 in conjunction with Emirates from Perth to Istanbul on Boeing 777. The first part of the journey from Perth to Dubai took 10 hours 55 minutes. This was my first time changing my meal to “Emirates Low Fat & Low Cholesterol” option.
Dubai, a huge empire built on the profit made from oil and gold. It is a gateway to Europe for many Asia and Oceania countries and it is a popular stop-over for tourists flying with Emirates. We chose Mövenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel as our base for the four days we were in Dubai. This hotel is more like a luxury relaxation village as oppose to the other luxury hotels which were high rises around the city centers.
Previously I have written an article on how to maximize stopover in Dubai when flying with Emirates, this time I will be introducing some of the top 10 things to do in Dubai that I have experienced from my trip. Within the “Dubai Stopover with Emirates” package, the airline partnered up with Arabian Adventures- a local company specializes in Dubai and Abu Dhabi tours. The taxi in Dubai were fairly inexpensive and Dubai Metro was easy to get around, hence we did most of the trip ourselves.
When people are transiting through Dubai, I highly recommend using Dubai Stopover with Emirates since it gives you great convenience, a discounted rates on accommodation and variety of perks. This would help you to maximize your money during your stay in Dubai.
