It’s cheap and quick never gets you stuck in traffic You have three main lines the red green and orange line the green line surrounds the heritage The red spans the whole length of Dubai while the orange one is connecting dubai marina only. it’s important You understand that Dubai is divided into three main areas: Dubai Marina with the Palm, burj al arab, Souk Madinat, etc downtown dubai with the dubai mall, burj khalifa, etc Deira with its Dubai Heritage Sites and the airport of course I don’t want to bore you with detailed information on Dubai Transportation if you’re interested in metro and taxi tips and tricks watch the end of the video Performances are held daily and lasts up to five minutes, evening shows begin at 6 p.m. And are every half hour until 11 p.m There are also two performances in the daytime at 1:00 p.m. And 1:30 p.m The best way to get here is by the red metro line getting off at the dedicated metro station dubai mall Buying on Groupon gives you the best price along with extra goodies, we got fast-track free coffee and a muffin The Burj Khalifa or Khalifa tower spans up to 829 meters making it the tallest building in the world open in 2010 for 1.5 billion dollars is now a symbol of pride for the UAE, the best time to pay a visit is at sunset So you can catch daytime and nightime together Booking is ideal Since this is a peak time. The condensation generated by the building’s air conditioning system adds up to 50 million gallons This water is recycled and used to sustain the 11 hectares of greenery below just like any other building the Burj Khalifa suffered from accidents such as suicides and casualties among workers having to face disputes with British news and human rights associations backing up earnings little as 3.73 dollars per day The Burj Khalifa has wonderful activities on the observation deck the digital telescope allows you to search and gain information by aiming at the buildings around and You can climb and sky jump the Burj Khalifa with a VR experience Customer service in Dubai is impeccable. And so was in the Burj Kalifa. Let’s say we had a really good time 150 dirhams 35 EUR you get any drink? Muffins and VIP pass That means you don’t have to queue with any other tourists you just get in and you go upstairs you don’t have to queue also going downstairs, which is kind of Fantastic The Dubai Mall is the second largest mall in the world 1200 plus retail shops an ice rink a waterfall an aquarium the biggest OLED screen in the world more than 14,000 parking spots and a dedicated metro station receiving 54 million visitors each year It’s the most visited mall in the world breaking several Guinness records Super easy to get here get off at al ghubaiba metro station on the Green Line and then walk We recommend Sheikh Mohammed center of cultural understanding Lunch at the Arabian teahouse restaurant and cafe Stroll through the spice souk, eat a golden fish restaurant and smoke some shisha water pipe Dubai doesn’t invest a lot in art yet, but they’re working on it I remember an exhibition dedicated to Miro and Picasso where the entrance was 32 euros now how expensive is that? The entrance here is free and some pieces are very unique projecting light onto sculptures crafting art through shadows I really didn’t like the music they had there. That was really bad. I mean who plays that music in a cultural center Business class seat YEEE! Eating here is way more expensive than in any other restaurant around There’s always a queue and it’s always packed you pay more but it’s worth it I always eat local food wherever I go You must try falafel, hummus, moutabal, tabouleh, the real kebab shawarma And anything with lamb. Arabic countries are Kings with lamb You can smell the barbecue and it’s tasty So what you should do now, is take the dates, you dip them in the sauce, which is very sweet And after you will have the coffee because then you feel all the flavors of the dates and the arabic coffee mixed together Now try the coffee Be sure to grab some Arabic coffee or arabic tea because after all this food you won’t be able to digest without it To go to the spice souk. You have to cross this main River to do that Follow the red path till you get to Dubai old souk marine transport station and take any boat to the other side Then walk to the spice souk, the boat cost twenty-five cents of a euro We recommend this walk at sunset to catch the best views of the river and the mesmerizing bird swirls If you like cooking like I do, spices here are very good and cheap But you have to bargain we recommend saffron, pepper of all sorts, vanilla beans, and curry Today we’re in the spice souk and the gentleman will introduce a little bit of these spices right here Mur and Sandal These are perfumes? yes used in the house Musk, usually locals use it in the Arabic parfume. This is the dry lemon Dried lemon. One piece broken. Put it inside chicken Can use it in soup or tea It smells so good lavender peppermint and this is pomegranate rose. Incredible scent of eucalyptus and it’s great for Releasing your nostrils and all your air ducts. You put it on top Strong! Ciao amico! How do you recognize if it’s silk or not? you use a lighter now, yeah use a lighter Yes, what happens if you use the lighter?
It will smell different. Always watch out they can be dirty So go for another one in case it’s dirty. But now the real question: What is the price? Price you can select first price is not problem. This is the cost. Oh This is a copy not silk. How can you recognize? This one if you burn will smell like? Polyester, like Plastic. And this one if you burn? It smells like hair Is a plastic, also smell like plastic and this the silk one Like hair! exactly like if your hair is burning. And what would be the price for this one silk? -for you? 175 dirham. -140 ! only one? Give me 160 140 cmon. I live in Dubai. Live in Dubai? I already have so many scarves. Ok 150. -140 cmon! 150! -cmon 140! ok 140 okay, the original price was 350 Dirham’s, 350 is the usual price they give to tourists, always ask for like half and try to bargain from there. To get from one side to the other side of The river you use these boats right here Just one Dirham! The way they do it is they collect it on the boat itself. So always carry some coins with you We’re gonna go on the other side. There’s a wonderful Restaurant where we’ll be going just right now We disembarked and we went to the right you’ll reach this restaurant right here they have really good bargains It’s quite cheap. The views here are beautiful. You have a chance to observe the real side of Dubai. No skyscrapers. No fancy dining No luxury at all. Just plain and simple normal life of the less Well being population, mandatory with this location is the water pipe called here as shisha We recommend mint and grapes or mint and watermelon, classic is double apple Night temperatures in the winter go down to 15 °C on the coast and 5 °C in the desert, hence try an Indian hot tea Always on the same side of the restaurant you’ll find this place right here called quick bites what you can get here is a tea for one dirham and 50 fills It’s an Indian style kind of tea and it’s with milk and a lot of sugar Nice to warm up on such a cold day because winter gets quite cold in the evening When landing in dxb Airport you have two options to get to the city centre, Metro is the cheapest but not Available if you need it between midnight and 5:00 a.m. So you may need to get a taxi Don’t take just any taxi only use official Dubai taxis. How do you recognize them? They usually are tan in color or white with a colorful hood The driver has to be in a uniform if these requirements are kept your safe. minimum spend is 2.8 euros (12 Dirhams) regardless how short the right is. don’t worry if the taxi meter starts at 1.2 euros (5 Dirhams) that’s just the law. always buckle up. cars go fast Cut your road tailgate you and overtake you on both sides. Taxi drivers do it, too So be safe, dxb airport has a metro stop on the red line called airport terminal one or three Before exiting the airport follow the metro signs and go up the escalators. fares depend on the zones you cross. within one zone 0.7 EURO cross two zones, 1.2 euros and cross three zones 1.7 ticket fares are deducted from credit added to cards you buy before entering the metro. There are several card options We recommend the NOL silver card not the standard ticket. It’s cheaper per ride and avoids queues everywhere It cost six euros and has 4.5 EURO of credit valid for 5 years saving you 0.25 EURO every ride you do Works for Metro buses, trams and water buses. Tap the card at the gates entering and again exiting the metro station And, on every episode you will learn one word of Arabic. the word on this episode is Khalas Which is also my name, Khalas means enough.. SO enough!
