@sapphire86 ure an agent is this story a lure or marketing strategy? wink both are right and its really good

yeah ure right about shared facilities but some my foreign pals used a place and said it was really cool, safe and informal
no airport shuttle stuff - said cab or red nol card was better, buffet breakfast etc
its an adventure so i'm sharing my notes for criticisms


This is neither a lure or marketing strategy.... I did this for good vibes and I discovered a talent in the process.

@MetaPhysical did you have to tell us you went to France before talking about Toblerone? Just banter. lol
@Sapphire86 have you tried ATKINS' range of choc? sorry i wrote it in caps......that is the bomb for me - they got different genres i'll say fruit mix, pure dark choc...heavenly i swear.. way better than toblerone......Dubai must have it i hope. Atkins! Atkins!!
Try it and become addicted

Ahahaha now I know I won't like your recommendation, I don't like dark choc and fruit choc. But Lindt choc especially the red pack milk choc has a way of melting in your mouth to give you that thrill smiley

That's a factor to consider, but honestly that's when I have free time.

I'm guessing August will be hot as well?

Maybe i will give it a try doing everything myself, if that will save me about 50-100k from the look of things, I can add that to my grooving money when I arrive
Yeah, UAE is already hot & this will run till sept/Oct, meanwhile I strongly recommend you do it yourself, 14 days visa is around $150 USD or little above, then go to wakanow/travestart to buy cheap (promo) ticket or directly from the airline, use booking.com to reserve a hotel. Try to use airline that lands in either terminal 1 or 3, cos these are the terminals that has access to metro station, then you buy a metro card there, I think 19aed can't remember the exact amount & it's come with balance. With that you will use metro to continue your journey (very cheap).

P.S__ book a hotel closer to metro station it will save your a lot of cash/stress.

Please I'm looking for A 5-7days getaway to Dubai, what's the estimated budget?
Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by thefunclubenterprise(m): 4:38pm On May 27, 2018
Sapphire86:


First of all, always book a stay with complimentary breakfast..

Secondly, even if you are going to book yourself, do use 17-20k hotels, but whatever your preference is sha. If you aren't someone who likes a good hotel, then book yourself (good hotels are a must for me)

You and your naira conversions lolz
Since you aren't into shopping, your budget is aiight. You are good to go. But limit the number of people you tell you are travelling to because they won't understand that Dubai is expensive, they would just be demanding.
I did that this time, and I enjoyed taking care of me (but still got things for a few people)

I like my hotels good dear, don't mind me with naira conversions, it's what I am used to and can readily relate with my pocket.

I will definitely go for the 17-20k hotels, lastly if you are an agent and have an offer lower or matching the ones I already got I can patronise you.

Thanks

Thanks Alot bros, I might use the same hotel op used and I also saw some nice hotels 1-2km away from metro, so I will definitely take your advise, but will use cab from the airport so I won't stress much upon arrival especially as I'm new. You have given me enough courage to try it out myself. Maybe I will holla when I am around. Thanks

You can you make your trip immediately after world cup? That very 15th of July
Some people went to Russia you know grin grin wink wink wink

Anyway your name sounds like a business name
from my research, there are co-existing rooms you can get for 5k/6k
dont do Rwanda- layover in Congo - plus i heard Ebola is in congo atm, Why not Kenya instead? I got a 24hour Layover in Kenya to/fro and i already booked a 24 hour tour plus nightlife before my next day flight
you know 1 layover reduces ur cost too. Make it fun
Really i need a Nigerian companion just to compare tourism research papers
I did mine by myself visa is just about $100 could be less thats for the 2 weeks travel allowance one
i got an app for my everyday in dubai to fix me up
Unfortunately i'm not a good writer, so no one should ask me but @Sapphire86 i'm going have weirder fun than you babe, just name it - the app helps you book multiple events and gives up to 60%- 70% discounts mid-summer
Going be lit and i'm not going spend more than $2000 wink



Thanks, will definitely rule out Rwanda air now. When you had a lay over at Kenya were you given a transit visa? because I know to enjoy such you must have applied for a transit visa with the country (from what I know, I may be wrong).
That's a good way to kill 2 birds with one stone, I get to experience another country. My friend once did that with Turkish Airlines.

The issue is I can't invest to window shopping. You have options between the first agent and DIY; if I take you as a client, i'd need commitment from you because I have 4 cities I'm currently working on. If you are unsatisfied with your options, then i could be of help.
