Dubai is one place that you absolutely have to visit once in your life, especially if you are someone who loves to travel in style and luxury but also want a new cultural experience. Dubai is a great place to be and it has something for every person. If you are into adventure and like things that give you an adrenaline rush then the city offers fast cars and race tracks, bungee jumping and sky diving, and a number of adrenaline inducing theme parks and water parks. If you are more interested in the night life, then Dubai has clubs, parties, and a great beach where you can stay the night and dance away your worries. Even if you just prefer to shop, then some of the biggest malls in the world are in Dubai, with just about every brand in the world available there.
Whatever you do end up doing, the main issue in Dubai will be the cost of moving about from one place to another. Cabs are very expensive in Dubai and it is highly impractical going everywhere through a cab. So what other things can you do? Well one option is to rent a car for yourself and use that to drive about. This will give you the freedom to move about the city and explore it on your own terms with a pre-fixed amount. However you should note that you will require an international license to do so. Plus it will require you to be a sober driver at all times, which means you cannot party as easily. So you might want to consider using the new trains that Dubai now has. The public transport system has become quite good and will let you move about at very cheap rates.
