Dubai vacation at Christmas via Istanbul
Just looking for advise . Me and hubby are planning trip to Dubai at Christmas time ( tentative date December 25 to Jan 3). I know it’s peak season but I work for a school board and that’s my vacation time.
Hubbys is looking after airfare while I’m looking after hotel and activities . I have no idea where to start . I’ve done some research but have little idea of where is a good centrally located place to stay . Don’t want to spend 400 night for hotels ...but willing to do up to 300 . I’ve booked 2 hotels around the “ internet city “ area( if I’m remember the name correctly) and they are within walking distance to the metro ( ended up being 200-250 a night )
So any suggestions ? I like to shop, husband likes to eat, neither of us care about going to the beach. And is 8 days more than enough? Or too short?
Update October 14th. So we are booked on Turkish airlines leaving Toronto the night of 18th, landing on tne 19th...Istanbul for 4 days then on to Dubai for 8.
Any suggestions for Istanbul are welcome. I’ve tentatively booked a hotel in the old area called Blue Arcadia mainly because of its location to the Blue Mosque and haggia Sophia .
Thanks for all the help. You all have been really helpful
Thanks in advance
