A "Cheap" Visit to Dubai

Dubai in the United Arab Emirates is not most people's idea of a cheap destination, but Craig Hickson of found a way to visit the playground of the super rich at moderate cost and writes about it in his blog posts of April 10 and April 14.
He found a nice apartment hotel for about $80 a night, and a lot of places to see for little or no cost. In addition, he made use of the public transit system and taxis to get around. I have not been to the Gulf, but was pleasantly surprised to read that the taxi driver used a meter and there was no hassle, unlike the case in some Arab countries I have visited.
It's good to know that if you are determined, it is usually possible to visit even pricey and exotic places without breaking the bank.
