The very mention of Dubai brings to mind the majestic towering Burj Al Arab, the luxurious hotel with creates a distinctive silhouette in the United Arab Emirate’s skyline. This “Tower of the Arabs” has attracted many a visitor from near and far, with its impressive architecture and immaculate design. However, I doubt I would be able to treat myself to a night’s stay at this hotel, should I ever have the chance to visit Dubai, unless of course someone *else* paid for it. I’ve read that prices start at USD1,000 per night going up to as high as USD15,000 per night. Of course, let’s not even begin to talk about the price of an overnight stay in the Royal Suite. I don’t think my entire life savings would even come close to paying for it! Hey, there’s a reason why this hotel is touted as one of the most expensive hotels in the world!

Obviously this sort of accommodation is way over my budget. If ever I had a chance to travel to Dubai, I would probably stay in one of the dubai hotel apartments instead. At a list of dubai furnished apartments is just the tip of the iceberg of what the site can offer. I know I can certainly find something to suit my budget and at the same time allow room for some shopping too! My cousin-in-law who resides in Dubai will be thrilled to have me as a shopping buddy, I’m sure. She recently found me on Facebook, so we have resumed our correspondence 🙂 Who knows, I might even have the opportunity to bunk in with her at her condo, and enjoy her home cooking there too! Or perhaps at the time I visit, she could already be staying in one of those gorgeous dubai villas! I just know we are gonna spend such a good time together!

Now…to start saving for that flight ticket…or to start hoping that a genie in a lamp would appear… 🙂
