Only downside is that you still have to add money for your food and the seat you select. So it work out around £280, which I think is still not a bad deal.

Just tried a couple of dates, and 22/11/12 returning 30/11/12 came in at only £201 all in, although excluding seat selection and food - those two both optional though and I would think money better spent taking some decent food with you!!

Return not guaranteed.

I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express for something like £20 a night while I was there (using a friends and family discount thing - everyone can use it) - you probably won't be lucky enough to find another quite that cheap - but it's not just for the rich!

I normally ate in the mall as well for something like £1 (though I'm easy to please!).

still not bad considering direct flight on average costs £350+

Have you got the info for the Holiday Inn Express discount pls - about to book several nights in one so that'd be useful.

No it was a while ago, but if you search for Holiday express friends and family discount (or it may be IHG friends and family discount) you should be able to find it quite easily if it's still running.

When I did it, some manager had given out his details to use and gave permission for anyone to use it.

I stayed at the IBIS hotel near the mall of the emirates lovely people five minutes walk from the mall and around 35-40 pounds per night very good value indeed. Dubai is good if you like shopping after a few days its all starts to feel a bit artificial.

Cold,

went through and added all the extra charges and surcharges and was £500 more expensive than a similar flight my wife will be undertaking soon with Emirates.

Maybe don't add the extra bits?! You don't have to book any extras

I'd love to go to Dubai, is it worth going? I see comments about being a bit artificial but I'm more interested in the quality of food, beaches, quality of hotels at reasonable prices etc. How bearable is the heat. Would love to see the Burj Khalifa and go on those buses that go in and out of the water. How easy and cheap is it for a pedestrian to get about to all the different areas?

Decent deal without extras, what is the cheapest fare from heathrow?

The fare soon mounts up once you add food and seats. Not so hot when it's not a direct flight too, so those "extras" effectively get doubled.

Seats - optional, food - optional, take your own decent food! You can book this for £201....

Indirect flight seems like the only downside (and possibly the airline although don't know much about them(

Thanks for the codes. Not making a massive difference to my prices, but thanks all the same.

Not booking seats Isn't optional when you are travelling with kids and need to sit together. 4 seats x 4 flights at £11 a pop. Food might be optional..... But going out and coming back, home food on 4 flights? Some things are just not the effort to save money for. Granted not everyone has the same travel requirements and needs and I guess I just find the extras that airlines are throwing in a little unpaletable.

:O For the whole F1 Abu Dhabi weekend, a return flight (Leave UK 1st November and leave Dubai 5th November) is £272 per person!! Everywhere else is £400+!! Thanks OP!!

Not always true - many borrow money etc in their home country because they are promised reasonable rates of pay etc. However, when they get to Dubai - things aren't always as rosy. They have to work their b**ls off and cant quit because they need to cover the loans taken out.
We have been to Dubai twice now and really do feel sorry for the labourers and even those with slightly better jobs such as Taxi drivers etc. Terms of employment are pretty unfair...

I agree - but it's far worse than you realise.

It does surprise me that people go to Dubai on Holiday. I have been a few times for work and can't see it's appeal as a Holiday destination. As a city it has quite spectacular malls and skyscrapers (The Burj is definitely worth going up ... although I am slightly obsessed with tall buildings!), but other than that there is not much to it. The weather is usually ridiculously hot and you end up travelling from one air-conned building to another via a furnace. I once tried to swim in the (outside) pool of the Hotel, but you can feel your skin burning as soon as you step out of the door!

A bit like the 'differencing' between arrogant and ignorant.

I hope you're all also enjoying paying high road taxes, extortionate energy prices and the weekly chore of recycling. We're doing our bit while countries like the UAE are laughing in our faces:

Have a read of THIS article from the Independent - 'The dark side of Dubai'.

The accommodation for 'workers' (slaves) is not quite so luxurious................................

Wake up people and see Dubai for what it really is.

Went to Dubai for £249 with Qatar. With only a 45min transit time so this ain't much of a great deal

Dubai or not Dubai, that is the question?!

I tend to go against public opinion, but I found the heat unbearably hot (as in you physically cannot walk down the street - they even have to fit air conditioning to all the normal side-of-the-road bus stops!) despite being a big fan of heat normally. The beach was completely average - worse than you'll get in Europe - but the sea was a lovely temperature!

The buses and metro (and taxis) are pretty cheap and easy to get around. I only stayed in a holiday inn and ate mostly £1 noodles from the mall though so can't comment on that! The Burj Khalifa was nice to visit but it's nothing spectacular (for me). It looks visually impressive but it's just a tall building - I couldn't even get a decent photo because it was so hot, the air is fuzzy!

It's one of the few destinations that you could give me a free plane ticket to and I wouldn't bother using it!

As to the slavery etc. stuff from above - completely true. However, this is how much of the world is, if not slavery than abject poverty.
Edited by: "callum9999" 21st Aug 2012

been there and i agree there is not much to it. looks good on papers but like others said built on slavery.
i don't know if it is true or not but it has been said that during RAMADAN you are not allowed to eat in public. oOoO
i can believe that as if you not local (!!) you have no rights........i stay away.

The voucher that you would put 'Anthony Banbridge' on or whatever it is??? So anyone can do this and IHG themselves seems ok with this?? Feel a mug ever paying the going rate now in the past!

Quite possibly the most overrated holiday destination in the world.

If you are rich and can fork out a lot of money to stay on some of the top hotels over there, then it is worth it because they are spectacular. But apart from the top hotels, there is nothing much there to do or see. I would say Dubai is only worth seeing if you are on your way to somewhere else (1 or 2 day stopover).
