A trip to Dubai

On a $1500 budget

The city of Dubai

Dubai was founded on June 9, 1833 but wasn't as big as it is today. It was more of a village than a city, but it started to grow in 1966 because of the discovery of oil. The city has a population of around 2.1 million people. Last year the gross domestic production value was $82.87 billion and is looking to be even higher this year. The currency in dubai is $0.27 to 1 USD. I would have 5509.72 dirham (currency in the UAE) to spend in the metropolis. Fun Fact: the cheapest flight round trip would have costed $1876.

The Holiday Inn, Dubai

The hotel I would be staying at is the Holiday Inn. This hotel costs $81 a night so I would be down $486, that would leave me with $1014 left. The hotel has 4 star rating and is the cheapest hotel you can get in Dubai.

Left over money

$39.79, $35.00 will go to taxi's I took. Now I have $4.79 left over, at least I thought I did. I must have lost it in the airport.

Why did I pick Dubai

I picked Dubai because they have expanded so much in the past 20 years. Its like a miracle that they became one of the richest cities in the world. That and its a pretty cool city in the middle of the desert.
