With the improvement of standard of living, more and more people gradually develop the inclination of enjoying life, not just struggling for living, and one good way to relax and enjoy life is through traveling to an exotic place. By traveling, certainly we all want to reduce our expenditure as much as possible, so following are 5 tips that can help you save money when traveling to Dubai.
Make a travel plan in advance
Before leaving for Dubai, you’d better make sure the vacation time that you can stay there and according to your schedule to make a travel plan, which can not only ease your travel but also can save you some money. In the plan, except for booking flight or hotels and those necessities you should take during your travel, you can also include the attractions that you are going to visit in Dubai.
Using the Internet instead of guide
The Internet can offer you all information that you want to know, so why spend some money on hiring a guide. Even traveling to a totally strange city or country, you can use GPS to find any place you want to go. A guide just means some extra money and may make you be totally dependent on him or her, so you surely will lose the enjoyment of traveling. But the Internet can make your traveling more independently and interesting.
As we all know, the main objective of traveling to an exotic place is to visit its famous or interesting tourist attractions, so there is no need to book an expensive hotel that you just spend few hours a day, and hotels like service apartments or budget hotels are just OK. Cheap hotels do not mean bad equipment, and also they can save you a lot of money. Those so-called “luxury hotels” just offer relatively better services, so it is recommended to check in an apartment and use your money wisely.
Using public vehicles
Using public vehicles is a good way to go around the destination, to interact with local people and to save money. If you take a taxi to visit the attractions, you are likely to be charged for more money and your time may be limited to explore those attractions on yourself.
When it comes to shopping, it is advised to shopping in those local markets instead of malls. Everything you find in malls can be found everywhere, so why you travel a long distance just to visit these things. Instead, in local markets, you can learn about local fashion and local culture, which is much important and worth for your traveling.
