Hotels Near Dubai Metro

A view of Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Beach Hotel from Inside Dubai Metro

Introduction:
We find this interesting for travelers to know about those hotels that are located near Dubai Metro, located along Red Line.  As economy crisis bite all around the globe, many travelers cancelled their travels plan or reduce their travel budget. So one can still enjoy visiting places and explore city such as Dubai in a low budget travel expenses.


So what's Dubai Metro have to do with the hotels that are nearby the metro stations. Well, how about saving on taxi charges, in Dubai can be very expensive depends on the distance to / from your destination. 

We must mention that most of the hotels that are close to Dubai Metro stations are from 3 - 5 stars hotels, but still you save on your transportation, and not only that, you beat the Dubai traffic chaos, and you travel comfortably, reach your destination much quicker by using metro. 

Ibn Batuta Gate - Dubai

Dubai Metro Red Line:
This Metro line operates between depot "Al Rashidiya" and depot "Jebel Ali" bounds. There are about 25 stations in between and two of them are interchange with Green line which are Union Station (Deira side) and Khalid Bin Waleed Station (Bur Dubai Side.) 

Both are underground metro stations. Depends on where is your location, you will need only to know either you travel towards "Al Rashidiya" or to "Jebel Ali" 


If you' visit Dubai and you are located in Deira, wishing to visit most of Dubai attractions, what you will need is to ride Red line Metro that travel to "Jebel Ali" as most of the attractions are located along Sheikh Zayed Road where Dubai Red line metro run parallel with this major highway in Dubai.  Mind you here we do not cover Green line metro, where it is a best line to connect with red when you travel around the city of Dubai. 

Hotels along Dubai Metro Red Line:

Mind you that few of the hotels that are located near Dubai metro are a bit far from stations, therefore, a bit of walking or crossing pedestrian bridges will be involved, and this will be much easier in a good winter weather from October to March.  

Not to worried much if it is in winter time here in Dubai that is from End Sept - March, walking will be enjoyable experience.

Travelers rank Dubai's worst hotels - What's all this fuss about?

One of the major news sources reported this recently, and to my surprises, everyone just tweets to their followers, other are major news sources too. Is it right? just to tweets whatever we hear and read?


Personally, Am not against anything, but for sure those ten hotels names mentioned in the report will be really pissed off. to learn that their hotel rates worse just based on reviews from "Trip advisor" (TA). Honest sometimes we tend to forget ourselves and to depend too much on some website that build their names out of other people reviews and says, instead of doing our own research too. Do you think I will care much of who ever one says in "Trip Advisor"? nope. I know TA done excellent job on their website and they help a lots of customers, but I guarantee you no one is perfect. I myself member in TA and I participate to reply some of travelers to Dubai in the forum though I'm not much active as other members, who are like full time job for them to reply to all never ending questions from travelers.

eviews can be based on so many facts and I do agree it will give some kind of picture about the hotel that is reviewed. But I'm against depending on one website and to categorize these 10 hotels in Dubai as a worse one without even consulting those hotels about those reviews about them.

Don't we all deserve equal rights and opportunities? As I'm traveler myself, I know what kind of hotel I will be stay as per budget, and my standard, and I believe each one of us do that. So some travelers used to stay 5 star hotels , and other years cant afford to stay in one, and also at the same time dont want to miss opportunity to visit Dubai, as result they will book less stars hotels. Do you expect to receive some services as they used to have before? No. Some travelers have issue with management or one person at the hotel and when go back home will start to write bad review about that hotel.


Sure I did experience myself bad services / delays / facilities at the hotel but is that will make worse hotel? In short the worse hotel for you is the 5 stars for others. Questions is before you send review to TP, ask yourself, did you stay in the right hotel, according to your budget and standard?

As for the news reporters, stop based your reports on one source only, how you will feel if your news company reported is the worse one based on reviews from one source. And also other media, please, do not tweets for the sake of tweet and getting more followers, review first what you tweet to your followers.

I'am not a professional writer but I hope you got my point. Please stick with your standards when you travel and research more, do not depend on one source.  You're also welcome to ask us too about Dubai and UAE in General for your next visit, but still research more and stick with the best info you have. 

Have a wonderful day,

More Info about the report which trigger this subject blog:

UAE cinema box office may reach low by 80% in Ramadan - You Know why?

In Any majority Muslim population country during Ramadan, most of activities are at the lowest this including in UAE, Dubai or any other cities in the country. You know why this happen in Ramadan?
Tip of  tallest tower in the world - The Burj Khalifa
I Will tell you in a moment, just want to mention that most of the Cinema operators in UAE from their experience of operating this business here, they know that in the month of Ramadan, they are less movie goers. And as result, hardly you can find new releases happening in this month. Big screen is one of the favorites meeting place in Dubai mostly by young generations and older alike.  There not less than 100 cinemas halls in Dubai follow by Abu Dhabi then other cities.  

Each major shopping malls have more screens than the other. For example Reels Cinema in Dubai Mall have 22 screens, another major cinema operator in UAE is Grand Cinemas, they have more than 15 locations across the country, each one not more than 10 screens, and also another newly addition of cinemas is VOX cinemas also located in different malls in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

All am trying here is to give you a picture of the cinema business in UAE which become so famous, that there is no any new mall is complete without a movie screens, and in month of Ramadan business is slow.

From my experience as a Muslim, I call Ramadan is a month of Miracle. More people attend the prayers in the mosque than any other months, more helping hand, less crimes, less sins, less so many other activities that one can do in normal months.  As for movies, since we are kids, our parents teach us not to go to any movies in the month of Ramadan and not to listen to any music, and this become habit over time. Although no one will stop to go to the movie, even if Muslim, still you can go to the movie, but honest it feel different and no taste. I used to listen to the music while I drive and sometimes if there is a music play that I like, I tend to increase the volume.  But in Ramadan, I don't do that for 30 days. 

But after Ramadan, and that is during the Eid Holidays, all cinemas are fully booked in all showing times in UAE for almost all three days during the Eid holidays and business booming again.  That is the time also they try to release new movies too.  I know some people never going to the movies only during the Eid Holidays.  

I love Ramadan as after that it gives you sense of celebration that no one can ever feels until done or been there.  Just imagine after one month you will be able to eat during the day, that's why there is EID celebration, for me I will enjoy the music while I drive, and experience that feeling of watching a movie again in a big screen. 

Have a Wonderful Day

Is UAE to be all year around high tourist destination?


High tourist season for the main Cities of UAE, Dubai and Abu Dhabi is from the month of October to March, that is the winter season for this part of the world, the highest temp estimate upto 27Degree and Lowest can reach 4degree at night in the desert areas.


The enjoyable months for outdoor activities, that is the time where live open concert are held outdoors, also outdoor activities, such as beach football competitions, most of Dubai and Abu Dhabi parks and beaches are full of visitors enjoying the weather and the beach. Most of the conferences and events are held too during this period. Such as Commercial events, air shows, Gitex, and many others. Is the Marathons season too. Such as Dubai Creek Striders, Dubai creek Half Marathon and full Dubai Marathon where runners all over the world attending in January. Also another famous yearly event in Ras Al Khaimah, RAK Half Marathon which is the best too in UAE. Abu Dhabi also host Half Marathon.

Hotels, Malls, water theme parks, attractions all become active and full of life. The most major event of all is Dubai Shopping Festival for the full month. Saying that, we know that low season is from April to September. Temp High upto 50's degree and very warm with high humidity, dusty wind, and a chance of Tropical storms in recent times. So who want to visit the country in such condition?

Well, just this year Dubai's hotels out performed the region hotels by high occupancy rates in June. In Abu Dhabi too.  The main reason is that, there is nothing impossible in UAE to make your stay in the country, safe, cool and enjoyable no matter the weather condition. Important here is safety, UAE is the safest place you can be in than in any other countries. 

So in Summer, you can visit the shopping malls, which some of them are huge and you can even spend the whole day in one shopping mall, there are air conditioned souks in Dubai so you do not have to go to Spicy Souk or Mena Bazaar in Bur Dubai, those you may miss although you still can visit if you can bare the humidity, which at night or sunset not bad. But the souks we are talking about are such as those at Madinat Jumeirah and Souk Al Bahar in downtown Dubai near Burj Khalifa.   Also another major attraction is Dubai Summer Surprises and Abu Dhabi too have their own summer festival.

Jeddah, Dubai hotel occupancy rates soar in June - Travel & Hospitality





Well, am not surprised, as many visitors are from nearby countries and they find no reason to travel so far to enjoy their holidays. Many years ago one cannot find facilities to enjoy their holiday either in Dubai or Jeddah. But I will refer more to Dubai, Once no much hotels choices to choose from, less shopping malls, no major attractions, less road networks and public transportation.

But at present, I can say Dubai is all year round destination. There are more than 200 hotels to select from two to seven stars hotels, choice is yours. Many major attractions are in place and the one stand tall is Burj Khalifa. Many major shopping malls, where one can visit and enjoy all day in the mall, road network are in place and still improving, public transportation is everywhere, from Dubai Metro, public buses, taxis and water taxis and soon tram will be introduce around the city.

Heat in summer or not, there is no reason if you can not to visit Dubai - UAE.

No expat quotas for UAE, says Dubai Police chief



Time of confusion rush in, when one looking for a job in any of the Gulf countries, and while in recent times we keep hearing about Emiratization, Saudization or Omanization, these all terms came up when Government insisted that priority to hire citizen on any jobs that they qualified and perform well in public and in private sectors.
Saudi Arabia implemented tougher rules such as introduce quotas to be met for private to hire Saudi Nationals or else facing heavy penalties. But good news that UAE will not follow that according to the Head of Dubai Police. UAE economy and country progress in many fields more than any GCC country second to Qatar now. So keeping such tough rules to private sectors, will hinder the progress, is either not enough UAE National to take over the job or less qualified to perform the job. Any country should keep priority to their citizens to be hired first, it is not right to see qualified citizens are jobless while jobs are filled with experts. 


Since UAE economy and progress is on going, more Jobs in UAE, Dubai, Abu Dhabi or any other cities will still be created and will be available for both UAE Nationals and Experts to fill in. In a long run, jobs in Dubai, UAE will increases and more workforce will be required to fill in. It is true many were affected by the last economy crisis, and left the UAE , but that is the part of life, ups and downs, so when all those who enjoyed and forget themselves and spent thousands from the salaries which they earn while working in Dubai or any other part of the UAE, and some of them even do not deserve to earn such huge monthly income, will immediately start to curse the country and forget where they come from and how they were in good times while in UAE.


No matter what you heard and what happened, do not under estimate your chance of being hired in UAE as an expert. Life is about taking a chance, and what a chance will be if one getting a good job in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, or from any other Emirates. Good Luck.

The Walk, Jumeirah Residence. Photo Credit: Hasan Al Jaberi
Many of the walk friendly streets, beach and parks become alive again during the all day in Dubai. Not like in Summer were streets cafe shops and parks are empty as blazing hot warm sunny days and dusty winds covered the city. One of the outdoor activities took my attention is Covent Garden Market which is held at the beachside location of The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residence, Dubai Marina. This street market is open to the public from October to end of May.

The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residence, known as New Dubai, is a place where one can enjoy walking and enjoy fresh breeze of Arabian sea. With the street market in winter months, it add more fun at The Walk such as shopping outdoors or just enjoy the view of the market and other activities around.

Dubai is one of the city in the world which is still young and keep growing with new attractions every few months. Dubai managed to bring something new, and as a human nature once in a while needs to experience, hear or see something new in life. This is including even change of leaders in any country.


Movies industries directors and now even artists all target Dubai for their next block buster movies / arts. Star wars the most famous and long time series also already depicted with Dubai city backgrounds by the French Artist Mr. Cedric Delsaux. His photos are so amazing that I wish one of the series in the future will be based in Dubai like "Mission Impossible 4". I hope these photos of Star wars in Dubai city background will encourage major block busters movies directors including such as next part of "Transformers" to be directed in Dubai.

Dubai: City of Gold



DUBAI CITY OF GOLD
Dubai is known as the 'City of Gold' and for good reason. The fastest growing gold business centre in the world, Dubai imports on more than 400 tons of gold yearly from Asia, far East and from all the major gold world market.

Inside Dubai Mall, the gold souk Area.

Dubai's gold quality and designs are famous, which are very impressive in different varieties of stylish designs to select from. The major contributor for Dubai to be successful in gold industry is free trade zone facilities, so there is not much taxes or customs duties are charged and that makes Dubai the best city to buy, trade gold and other jewelery .


"Trade in the gold souk grew during the 1940s due to Dubai's free trade policies which encouraged entrepreneurs from India and Iran to set up stores in the souk.  Despite a general slump in the global gold market." WikiPedia.  Therefore, Dubai has a long history in Gold trade even before the oil boom and tourism sector.  It become the major trade route  for many goods including gold in the19th century. Dubai port played major role in this business. 


The first ever gold souk in Dubai started in Deira near the main bus terminal right after the Shindagha tunnel on the right side. After renovation the Dubai's famous Gold Souk in Deira side is one of the largest gold retail shops line up in the world.  It is believed to be started around early 1900's with just few iron smiths and Gold retailers. Then after the free trade free zone came into effect in around 1940's and 50's, more Gold smiths, gold retailers and business itself boom. As results, many shops opened at the same area, so that time Dubai government decided to make official "souk" which is Arabic word and in English means "market", at that time wooden covered and design were build around the souk to give even more souk feelings and texture. 


Since then, more and more shops were open and rapid expansion of Gold Souk in Dubai in together with Oil boom,  more expansion of Gold Souk took place in different years since 70s. Gold shops grew from 50 retails shops to more than 300 retailers and wholesaler; all these shops are just accommodated in L shape are and surroundings areas. Shops renovated and regularly updated to meet international standards and not to loose Arabic culture Souk designs. On each narrow alleys of the souk there shops and on top covered by wooden roof with big fans to cool down visitors and workers who constantly moving around. These wooden designs keep the spirit which resemble of old Arabian souk streets. 


Safety and Security:
Each shop equipped with latest security systems including cams. These security systems are connected directly with Dubai Police. Mind you there non uniforms police patrols scattered around the Gold Souk. Anyone try to sell Gold, a security officer will be called to confirm the identity of the seller. Security in these areas are excellent. 


Other Gold Souks:
Well, you can find almost same design of Souk in Bur Dubai side, the other side of the creek, with gold shops line up.  Other in Karama, Satwa and in shopping malls.  Most of the Gold shops you will noticed are line up close to each other.


Gold and Diamond Park:
In recent times, you can say the advanced Dubai Souk came up and more new gold shopping souks were built such as Gold and Diamond Park along the Sheikh Zayed Road and others in different areas around Dubai.


Gold and Diamond Park add more texture to Dubai to be truly city of Gold. Dubai reputation in Gold & jewelery is becoming even more strong among the visitors, residence and tourists.   The park area is huge and accommodate different facilities in Gold and jewelry business. Also act as Free Zone, duty free zone and including 100% foreign ownership. So the Gold and Diamond Park is a competitive place for shoppers and best place for manufacturers and retailers. Fully backed up by the government, with 24-hour security.  

All facilities are available for Gold craftsmen to perform their work. Also the location is centrally located right in the business center of Dubai. The park only offer the highest standard quality of gold and diamonds, also visitors have opportunity to learn more about gold and how the designs are made.

Dubai-UAE-Weather-Photos

Nature / Weather, am so interested with and find myself become a weather man for my company staff. In UAE there no much weather activities as in any part of the Middle East, and it was kind of boring for me nothing un-usual to report though I did informed about dusty wind, rain, sea condition, fog, and hail storms in Dubai or Abu Dhabi before the weekends.

Years passed by and in recent times there were many un usual weather activities in UAE, and in Middle East in general.  Is it Global warming?  Well who knows. But both Dubai and Abu Dhabi and other parts of the country received a good amount of rain and even caused flooding.
