Highlights of this trip report include:

The Emirates Economy flight from Abuja (ABV) to Dubai (DXB)
The Copthorne Hotel Deira, Dubai
The Dubai Train ride
City Centre Mall, Deira and the Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa
The famous Dubai Fountain show
Emirates Economy flight from Dubai (DXB) to Washington (IAD)
The Transfer from Airplane to Mobile lounge




My first ever trip report on nairaland, even though this is one of my numerous trip to the U.S, I have the options of flying with British Airways, Air France, Ethiopia Airline, Lufthansa, Emirates Airlines, Turkish Airlines to Dulles International Airport, Washington from Abuja where I’m based. I choose Emirates Airline because of this important reason which was; flying from Abuja means I will qualify for Emirates Connect, if my stopover in Dubai is more than 8 hours for Economy class and best connection time is not available (meanwhile my stopover is for 21 hrs) secondly my friend work around IAD and lives in Maryland so it’s a no-brainer and the best part is that I can do this on a saver economy ticket.

Emirates replaced the Abuja-Dubai route with Boeing 777-300ER from the 777-300 which was a fantastic move by them because there are Live Tv and Internet on the flight and the legroom is not bad. Pushback started at 6:17 pm and we lifted off at 6:36 pm from runway 04/22.

After landing my phone fell and stopped working until I got it repaired in Dubai, this means that I was not able to record the landing, the stopover visa processing with Emirates connect and hotel transfer.

The Copthorne Hotel Deira, Dubai
The Dubai Train ride
City Centre Mall, Deira, and the Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa
The famous Dubai Fountain show


We disembarked at terminal 3 and I took a train to terminal 1 for STPC visa processing provided by Emirates Connect, transfer to the hotel was done an hour and 12 mins after touchdown which is not bad considering that we landed in Dubai around 04:03 am Dubai time.Check-in was done within 5 mins of reaching the Hotel (Copthorne Hotel Deira, Dubai) and I slept till around 1 pm local time. The Emirates Customers care unit advised me to take the phone to Deira City Mall for repair, getting to the Mall means I had to get a metro pass.I got a metro pass for 22AED (N2,172 and $5.99) made for tourist with less than 48 hours in Dubai, I think it’s good value for money and metro is the best way to get around Dubai. Yay, I got my phone repaired and the technician refused payment, he said it’s a routine job, I thanked him profusely before exploring the Mall.

The Dubai Metro is a rapid transit rail network in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The Red Line and Green Line are operational, with one more line being constructed. These first two lines run underground in the city center and on elevated viaducts elsewhere.Wikipedia

After fixing my phone and exploring the Deira City Mall, I decided to take a trip to the Dubai Mall (Which contains the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountain Lake).

Good channel and good videos, but you need more subscribers to be more popular. Youtube is a hard social media, where you can get a good popularity, opening up the possibility of more people to share videos. But for this you need to collect this base of people. I found very good service, https://buyrealsocial.com/youtube/likes-yt/. It`s rather cheap for a such good quality.
