Voice of Travelers to UAE
We bought air tickets from Dublin to Dubai with Emirates. The on-board experience was the best we've ever had. The vegetarian meals for my husband were so tasty. The ticket price is nothing compared to what we were offered during the flight. As we were both so excited to travel on THE BEST ROAD in the world, we went to Jebel Hafeet. On the way to the highest point, we unexpectedly saw resort hotels and summer villas. Although because of the weather the view from the top wasn't that great, we liked the trip. The next time we book a ticket to UAE, we want to explore the city areas.
First Time Buying Emirates Tickets
It was our first time using Emirates. We usually use LCC, so the ticket price was over our budget, but the flight wasn't stressful at all, so it was worth the price of the ticket. We went to Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest tower. We didn't know we could get tickets online, but we'll try to next time we go there. Sheikh Zayed Mosque was giant and beautiful. Gold, mosaic tiles, complicated glass works, and marble stones were used for decorations. Souq in Deira district is famous for gold sales, so we visited there. But of course, we couldn't afford it, so instead, we bought golden glittered shoes. On the returning flight, we were already planning our next trip to Dubai. We're already excited to book the tickets for next time!!!
