    Hi Dave,

    I’m Shedi from Dubai Travel Adventure.

    You have written a great post. Being myself a Dubai based travel blogger I know your details are genuine. I have written an article about Dubai’s best areas to stay in.

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Thanks Shedi.

  3. When To Visit Dubai with Kids


    Thanks for this, it’s very detailed. Planning Dubai for October now instead of August after reading your blog. Probably mid-October, would you say this is good? Will things to do be open in Dubai?

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      October is a great month to visit Dubai. Good weather (hot, of course) and lots of sun. Everything is open.

  4. How Long To Stay in Dubai?

    Greetings David from Australia! We are planning to take a Europe tour next year (July) for around one month with kids aged 8 and 13 and thinking to stop Dubai on our way. How many days do you reckon will be adequate to stay in Dubai? I am thinking of 2 days as of now. Still making the itinerary till I bumped into your website. Many thanks.

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Yes, Dubai makes a great stopover between Europe and Asia/Australia. It makes adapting to the huge time zone switch a little more natural. I’d stay for 2 full days in Dubai.

  5. Dubai With Kids
