I certainly couldn't recommend Dubai as a holiday destination, it's alright as a stopover city but it would drive me insane for week.

My husband and I like walking around cities and you can't walk here, most tourist places you want to reach you will need to take a taxi or do a tour.

There is the metro an overhead system which only covers certain areas.

Not been to Abu Dhabi so can't comment on that.

I understand Oman is a good country to visit but expensive.

This was one of the best holiday we ever had till date, that time la vacanza travel planned our holiday to Mauritius & Dubai and putting it together meticulously.
