Dubai Master Thread
« on: March 10, 2013, 01:41:33 PM »
Noticed some people had some trip reports but figured would be helpful opening a new master thread...

I have a 20 hour stop over.. curious as to whats recommended.. I'm definitely going for some early morning skiing...  looking for a safe market to buy some purim costumes.. what else is really neat?

What else is recommeded? land at 8am and leave at 4am... flying EK first (4 legs) happy to hear some feedback as well how the meals are... I'm on 2 380s and 2 777's

Has anyone Jewish looking gone? Thanks

The malls are cool, but only thing that was WOW to me was the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi, about an hour drive away

Curious -- what's your routing? What miles? (Yes, I'm assuming it's not a revenue EK F ticket.)

IMO as a Jew, you'd have to be an idiot to go to Dubai. Just my opinion

Works for me, but in case it still doesn't open up for you, search "A Doctor's Nightmare Stopover in Dubai "
