That being said, it is possible to enjoy your time in this city without spending a small fortune. Here are 10 tips for doing Dubai on the cheap.1. Sample some local cuisineAlthough Dubai is well known for its high-end, five-star restaurants, you can experience a much more informal (and cheaper!) style of dining by visiting Al Diyafah Road to sample delicious food from one of its reasonably priced restaurants or cafes. With an array of different cuisines from Lebanon, Iran and India, there’ll be plenty to choose from without spending a small fortune.2. Jump on the Metro…A day pass on the metro will only set you back 14 AED (United Arab Emirates Dirhams) (just over £2). They are clean and air-conditioned and are undoubtedly the best way to see the city. 3. … Or set sailFor 1 AED (16p!) you can take a 10 minute ride in an abra (a traditional wooden boat) to the souks (markets). Sit back, admire the views and soak up the contrasting elements of old and new that give Dubai its charm. 8. Watch some wrestlingPehlwani wrestling to be precise. Every Friday you can join the crowds that gather to watch as two men try to pin each other down in the sand. Sounds like a perfect Friday afternoon. 9. Enjoy a day at the parkDubai Creek is another great place for families as it has an educational play area (10 AED) but it is also the perfect spot for anyone to enjoy the weather. The entrance fee is 5 AED and you can take a cable car for an extra 25 AED for amazing views of the city. 6. Visit a museum or twoMany of Dubai’s museums have free admission. Why not visit the Dubai museum that aims to present the traditional way of life in the Emirate of Dubai and is situated in the oldest existing building in the city? Or alternatively, head to the Camel Museum and have yourself photographed on a stuffed camel? Both sound equally entertaining.7. Wander around the Bastakiya QuarterDespite being famed for its modernity, this area of the city retains some history and charm. The former haunt of well-to-do traders, the streets are now lined with cafés and stores and it is free to stroll around the area.
