Traveling to Dubai, Travel blog, Travel review, Travel news, Lebanon tourism blog

My wife and I will be attending a wedding ceremony in Dubai and to be more specific at ‘The Address Hotel’ on the Dubai Marina on the October 15th, 2016.
We have booked on ‘flydubai’ with tickets costing 250$ per person and visas for 120$ per person. I will update you on the comfort, cleanliness and hospitality of this airline.
We are extremely excited for this visit; it will be our first visit to Dubai. We have booked our rooms at the ‘Hawthorn Hotel & Suites by Wyndham JBR’. The hotel looks great and is located near the wedding ceremony. It seems to be at the center of all the action in Dubai.
I will be sharing my experience at this fancy hotel and its surroundings.
We are planning on seeing Dubai Marina Mall, Burj el Arab, Marina beach, and Adventure Waterpark. Stay tuned for more updates.
