Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Abu Dhabi – A Stunning Architecture

Tourists visiting Dubai generally keep one day of their plan for Abu Dhabi trip. This one day trip is specially planned to visit Grand Mosque which is one of the best architecture of modern world. Being in Dubai for more than 3 years, I always planned to visit this holy place but it never got formalized. Finally the day arrived when we could make it out and witnessed this beautiful place.

This stunning piece of art was completed in December 2007 and was designed by Syrian architect Yousef Abdelky. The project was launched by the late president of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. His final resting place is located on the grounds adjacent to the complex.

This astonishing architecture has capacity to accommodate over 40,000 worshipers. It also carries 24 carat gold gilded chandeliers and the world’s largest hand knotted carpet.

Visiting Hours: Opened daily to visitors from 9 AM to 10PM (last entry is at 9.30 PM) except on Friday morning which is for worshipers only. On Friday, Tourists can visit the Mosque from 4.30 PM to 10 PM.

Ramadan Timings: Open daily From 9 AM to 1 PM except Friday.

Tips: Best time to be there is evening time around 4-5 PM. You can have both the views of day and night time.

Dress Code: Ensure your legs and arms are covered – no shorts or skirts above the ankle. Also it should not be tight fitting and garments should not be see-through. Female visitors need to cover their hair so it is advised to carry headscarf. Abaya and headscarf are also available for Female visitors at security check.

Here we bring some of the pics from our repository. This time we could manage to make our plan in day time and wish next time we can be there at night time to bring more pics for our readers.

How to find cheap flights to anywhere in the World

“Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly.”

Air travel is one of the fastest method and necessary for those human beings for whom hours matter a lot. Sometimes, it might be a concern of urgency but most of the time people do not prefer booking flight tickets due to its dynamics and inflated pricing, additional/hidden charges, cancellation or refund rules or some unavoidable conditions. Here is a list of few effective techniques to get cheap flights every traveler must know

  1. Never Forget To Find Airlines Sale –

A number of platforms you can access to get all about the airlines’ sale and if you are comfortable with the terms & conditions of the merchant, you will get benefits for sure. The online coupon code providers & deals service dealing websites are the best platforms to know about airlines sale.

Further, if you are short on time and need to book flights on the go you can install mobile applications of various companies offering discounted airfares and online booking features and get offers on your mobile screen within no time.

  1. Make Your Reservations Early & Avoid Festivals –

Undoubtedly, you can avoid burning a hole in your pocket if you book the tickets in advance because a research study says that the domestic flights are 27% cheaper when booked more than one month in advance as compared to last month.

In addition, booking too early may backfire because most airlines computer programs are not designed in a way to create deals for you. On the other hand, you should avoid booking on weekends and during the festive season to find low airfares.

  1. Always Do Comparative Analysis of Airfares –

Due to the availability of many travel companies and their cut-throat competition for attracting customers, you must arrange a couple of minutes before booking to perform a comparative analysis of these fares. According to a travel consultant, after midnight on Tuesdays or early Wednesday mornings might be a perfect time to check airfares because the airlines usually dump all the last weekend’s unused bookings for sale-priced tickets back into the computer system at midnight on Tuesdays.

  1. Book Round Trips for Great Savings –

It might be costlier to book one-way tickets instead of round trips and you can enjoy great savings or big discounts using this technique. As you start booking round trips, the airline’ system will filter the cheapest airfares combinations where you can choose accordingly.

  1. Enjoy Sign Up Bonus Offers –

You can discover a fantastic bonus offer through first-time registration for booking your air ticket with the travel companies. In this digital age where we live our lives online, it will be easy to get extra hot deals on flight tickets anytime.

  1. Subscribe Mailing List To Get Personalized Deals –

Sometimes, the airline companies directly offer a limited extent of discounts to their valuable customers for the continued patronage or when trying to tap a new market and attract new customers in their existing markets for this, it is suggested. not to forget to get email subscription so that you will come to know about personalized deals & important alerts instantly.

  1. Contact a Travel Agent for personalized Assistance –

If you do not understand the picture of online booking system or you’re following a hectic schedule, you must get some travel agent assistance because only an expert can understand your mind set and provide you excellent options to travel & booking related all queries.

Keep in mind the points mentioned below –

  • Always-read terms & conditions while booking.
  • Read the updated baggage policy.
  • Go through the flight ticket refund rules and their implications before booking the tickets.
  • Make use of the referral programs run by various companies by referring your friends to generate cashbacks or discounts.
  • Select the payment instrument that offers the most.

It has already proved the importance of travel agents while booking flight tickets or any related queries because they have the ability to answer all your questions at one point. You may not be able to inquire about everything related to it from the airlines directly but a travel agent can help you, guide you significantly and agents of Nanak Flights have already proved and satisfied thousands of customers.

Dhow Cruise Experience – Marina Dubai

Dhow Cruise Experience – Marina Dubai

If you are a tourist or has been living in Dubai, one thing which you should not miss is Dhow Cruise dinner experience. This is one of the top activities and a must-to-do. There are two places where you can have this experience; Dubai Marina and Dubai Creek.

Dubai Creek surroundings bring mix touch of old and new Dubai, though Dubai Marina is surrounded with modern skyscrapers building and comes with a complete modern look. This blog brings you some click moments from Dubai Marina.

Why this activity is a must-to-do

  • It doesn’t hurt much to your pocket. Though there are variety of Dhow cruise options generally starting from AED 85 to AED 250.
  • Dinner is included.
  • Traditional Tanoura dance performance or Magic show to entertain you.
  •  A great opportunity for camera lovers. The cruise boat is beautifully lighted up n looks amazing. All over there are lights and is very picturesque.
  • A perfect evening to be with your loved ones and enjoy the ride.

What not to expect

  • Don’t set high expectations for Food. Options are less and may not be 100% fit according to your taste. It is because they have tourists coming from all over the world.
  • Don’t expect a world class entertainment.
  • Don’t expect it to be overwhelming or breathtaking, instead, it’s a quiet outing of you with your loved ones.

Also, there are plenty of companies which offer this package and quality of service may vastly differ from one company to another company. It’s better if you go through online reviews of all available options and then decide.

If you are first time experiencing it and want to decide between Marina Dhow Cruise and Creek Dhow Cruise, I will personally recommend Dubai Marina which brings modern touch of Dubai. Still online reviews option is always open for you 😉
