Skyprince presents the Dubai you hardly seen !

Taken from my recent trip to UAE and Oman. It is my 7th visit to this fantastic country UAE but during my stay in Dubai, I didn't visit many of its landmark attractions, since I'm more interested to see the lesser-known areas ( especially the traditional ones ) deep into the heart of Dubai.

I believe that there are already too many photos of Burj Khalifa, Mall of the Emirates, Burj Al-Arab hotel etc all over the net, so I decided to snap mainly the "lesser-known" districts of Dubai which you hardly heard of

I am a super big fan of smaller Arabian Gulf nations (for many reasons )


My hotel room - I stayed in Traders Hotel Dubai ( 4 star )

the nearest metro station from my hotel





Dubai Metro is world-class and very convenient. Trains are super fast ( by metro standard ), quiet, and with this Nol card I can travel as much as I can in a day for 14 Dirhams

Al Ghubaiba. Who says Dubai is "soulless" should come to this area and you will immediately change your mind.
In fact, I found Dubai to be one of the last places on earth to be called "soulless"

A typical Petrol station in UAE
