Watching your wallet with free activities near Dubai hotels

Filed under : Hotels

When people think of Dubai they automatically think of luxury and why shouldn’t they? This thriving, growing city is known for it’s endless shopping malls, luxury hotels and exclusive bars. However, you’ll be surprised to find just how much those on a budget can get out of this fantastic city. With many Dubai hotels situated on the creek that the city was built on, you’ll be well-placed to spend an evening strolling along the water’s edge. Conserving your cash doesn’t mean that you should miss out on quintessential holiday experiences, admire the fabulous architecture and jostle for space in the crowded bazaars watching the locals haggle and taking in the ambience, you’ll soon find that budget and boring don’t always go together.

During the daytime, avoid the lure of the shops and drag yourself from the pools at the hotels in Dubai and head off to the beach. The salt content of the sea is unusually high here, so a dip in the water will let you float lazily on top of the water as you bob along on topping up your tan, and the salt will do brilliant things to your skin.

Carry on pampering yourself with a free appointment at the Formul’a French Hairdressing Academy. This training salon offers free haircuts, so if you’re feeling brave, trust a student to do your hair and head home with a sexy new look. You could always play it safe and go for a simple trim and tidy up, before you skip out feeling fresh and fabulous ready for a night out.

You don’t need to make excuses and head back to your hotels early if you’re holidaying with an empty wallet. Dubai is full of discounted night-life and many bars run special happy hour or Ladies Night promotions. One such venue is the Double Decker which offers free drinks for ladies on Tuesday nights. This British themed boozer is popular with holidaying Brits and boasts a karaoke competition where a holiday is given out as the grand prize. At other times guests will be thankful for the great special offers on drinks and affordable food and bar snacks. Live sports are also shown here. Another option is the pub quiz at Fibber Magee’s on a Tuesday night which offers up free drinks as prizes and drink vouchers for ladies on arrival.

Explore the modern side of the region at The Scene Club, the perfect venue for an evening of local culture. The region’s first cinema club is a great way to experience the cultural boom currently taking place across the whole of the United Arab Emirates. Free films are shown as part of the Dubai International Film Festival and the varied program runs all year round.
