Hope this helps some towards your budgeting plans for a trip to Dubai, I averaged £100 spending a day while I was there and that covered eating out for lunch and dinner mid-range, visiting a water-park and travelling using a mixture of taxis and metro.
Has anyone else been to Dubai, Did you manage to spend less than me a day? Was there anything I may need to add onto the list?
