Visiting Dubai? Must check this site -

Keeping in view of the holidays theme and the upcoming Dubai Shopping festival, I thought of providing details on the sites that help travelers who visit Dubai.

The best site that's a must is 

This site is maintained by Dubai Corporation of Tourism and commerce has all the details relevant for the travelers from Visa, stay to sites that are must visit inside dubai and the discounts that are available

The Best things first
1. It has a beautiful travel tool i.e Trip planner ( the best thing is they have an app too) which helps you to plan your trip itinerary and add it to your mobiles. Carry and tick mark things that you have visited and check the information about the places that you plan to visit on the go!. Cool.

2. The advised trip itinerary based on number of days of your visit. The normal question anyone has what to see first and what to experience next? and that too when your time is limited. The basics anyway are there to be covered ( Burj Khalifa, Gold Souq).. but the advised trip planner as per number your number of days of visit will ease your tensions and will give a jump start to your planning.

3. The discounts and the event planner links. Dubai is all about shopping and shopping and discounts go hand in hand. Check out the best discounts available and keep them in handy.. These discounts are for your stay, eat, relax,enjoy categories and will ease the burden of taking out your pocket every time. Enjoy your experiences and avail discounts .The events planner helps in checking what's running at the time of your visit be it a motor show or a GITEX

Now to areas of improvements
1. The site has heavy images and videos. So may have trouble on low bandwidths for opening up
2. Some of the links are not working ( esp the business set up ex.
which means the testing is not done properly..

Overall based on the content and helpful information , I would rate this site 4.5/5

Welcome back

I started this blog way back in 2007 but I didn't continue it all these years. Well, the reasons can be many but the main reason is that I was lazy.
But today when I randomly checked the status of my blogs, I found to my surprise, this blog post has over 40000 page views. Wow. that's incredible for a person like me.

This has prompted me to start again and this time with more clarity and on new things.

I am going to focus on the sites that I visited.. there is no deviation on this. But, then this time I want to run a theme for a month. Say, the themes can be, the sites in Dubai, or the sites under a category ( wellness, Education etc). This way, I hope to focus better on the sites and their quality and also will help my viewers to easily check the sites organized under the same category.

I also wanted to list my own version of top 10 sites per week, in each category. The criteria will be
1. The content that is available on the sites   25%
2. The ease of use of the site ( in terms of contact information, navigation ) 25%
3. The theme of the site ( look and feel)  25%
4. Number of improvements  25%

Well, this is my rating and there are multiple sites that give these ratings as well and I have no competition with them.

In my next post, I am going to write about....what else? as this month being December and Christmas is approaching, Obviously the theme is based on Vacation sites and what one can do during the vacation in Dubai.

Thank you all my viewers and I sincerely apologize for my long absence. and I promise that I will be in touch with the viewers who request to review their websites.
