If you’ve become the designated tour guide for family and friends that are visiting from abroad, don’t even sweat it…we’ve got you covered!
Dubai has become THE hotspot for tourists visiting the Middle East and that’s no shock to expats living in the city at all because everyone simply adores it.
Between Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Mall, an indoor skiing venue, gorgeous beaches and lots of fabulous dining and entertainment options – you’d be crazy not to enjoy everything the city has to offer.
This is especially true when your friends and family come to visit and you automatically become the city’s tour guide, which is wonderful but can get a tad overwhelming if we’re being truthful.
And the responsibility can come with a costly bill. But don’t you worry, we’ve compiled a must-see list of Dubai’s best attractions and activities to do with up to 60% OFF!
And the best part? We’ve customized it just for your guests.
