Right after Bahrain, the next stop is Dubai, United Arabs Emirates. We arrived in Dubai on Friday night and staying at Grand Palace hotel which is in Al Karamah area and opposite BurJuman..They claimed it as a 4 stars hotel..Heh!! really 4 stars??..AED600 a night.During exhibitions, the rate will go up to AED1200. Hotels are expensive here in Dubai. To us, it is better to stay at nice and prominent hotel as it will make our client easy to come and meet us at the hotel. If you stay at without star hotel, it will make our life difficult..
a unit of UAE Dirham is roughly equal to a Ringgit Malaysia (Dhs1.00 = RM1.00)..
Visa for Malaysian = Free or PERCUMA!!! In Dubai, itâ€™s all about money,money and money..a short distance taxi ride at least you have to pay +/- Dhs30..So!! Dare to live in Dubai!!..??
Dubai has really one of the exciting architechure scene in the world. They have Burj Dubai, once completed will the tallest building in the world, Palm Jumeirah, a reclaimed island which resembled palm tree (David Beckham own a house there). But to me, if you take out those concrete structures, what do Dubai has (think!)..Hookah maybe..At this moment, they are starting to claim a lot of no.1 spot (tallest building, the biggest airport, etc..etc).
Abu Dhabi is not so hectic as Dubai and itâ€™s hard to be stucked in a traffic jammed ..That is what I saw during my visit to Abu Dhabi, other than that, donâ€™t come and bark at me if you stucked somewhere in Abu dhabi..To go to Abu Dhabi, I took an express bus which costs me AED15 one way..If you take taxi, Dhs200 will be taken away from your pocket..Going to abu Dhabi, it is very common to be stucked in a jammed along Sheikh Zayed Road. We were stucked there for almost 1 hour..After that it took us 45min to reach Abu Dhabi..Coming back is another tiring journey..45 min to reach the emirates tower ..Only after 2 hours stucked in the traffic jammed then only we arrived to our hotel..Normally it takes 15-20min to reach Al Karamah from that Emirate Towers..How can this people stand this kind of jammed road daily..!1??/
Taking the bus to abu Dhabi make me think that this bus facility is only to cater for expatriate ..Want to know why.?.Because you can only see faces of Pinoy, Paki or Indians and of course including us who are coming from Malaysian..Rich Emiratis dont take bus..Why take a bus when you have Cayennes in your garage..Me too won’t bother!!!
