Not really a good deal. Because hotel is like $70-80 a night. So that's $400. Rest goes towards airfare. This standard package doesn't even include the airport transfer.


On yea, don't forget to read the fine print.



If you research, you will be able to find similar or better deal.

From San Francisco, the nonstop Emirates A380 economy flight is ~$1000 for pretty much all of the dates listed in the promotion.

Even with a hotel at $70 (before taxes mind you, so it ends up around $90-$100, but split between 2 people, so let's call it $50/night per person), thats $250 in hotel per person. Granted that comes with breakfast, versus the "Standard" groupon offering that does not, but you can add the breakfast for $10/day at the hotel.

It pretty much comes out at the exact same price. I'm definitely not defending this so called "deal", since it's not a deal, just pointing out that it isn't technically more expensive.

That being said, you can get a nicer hotel for barely more in a better area, and get some tours through the hotel.

Don't mean to troll the OP, but if you are looking to visit the Middle-East, shouldn't you rather be visiting Jordan or Egypt?

Well to me it does seem like you are trolling unless you explain why in your opinion one should visit those other countries instead.

it would be just as bad if when I post a deal to Paris, France in Europe and you said a similar comment that we should rather visit Italy or Germany.... sure they all European but that's not the point. They are also very different but equally great destinations.

Dubai is extremely expensive compared to Egypt and Jordan. Dubai is a fake city that build on dry desert. You can see big and massive building architecture in Dubai but in Egypt and Jordan you see real taste of Middle Eastern culture, food, museum ancient civilization.

13th century legal system at its core sprinkled with a dusting of western-appearing features that is a nightmare if you do something that seems to a westerner to be innocent and end up arrested.

State Department tips for "safe and progressive" Dubai:

"The State Department suggests that American tourists maintain a low profile and vary travel routes. "

"Before arriving in Dubai, they need to familiarize themselves with local law enforcement in case of an incident."

"Travelers visiting during Ramadan (mid-May to Mid-June) should not eat, drink or smoke during daylight hours. "

Awesome Dubai travel stories:
"Dalelv is a Norwegian fashion designer who was on a business trip in Dubai in 2013. During an evening out, she was raped. She later reported her attack to the police. The authorities' reaction? Ms Dalelv was charged with perjury, having extramarital sex and drinking alcohol. She received a 16-month jail sentence. "

"One London man was jailed for possession of three poppy seeds left over from a bread roll he ate at Heathrow Airport. Painkiller codeine is also banned."

"A Big Brother TV executive has so far been held without charge for five days after being arrested for possessing the health supplement melatonin."


"Chief Executive Catherine Wolthuizen said: "We have seen a steep increase in such cases over the last 18 months.

Customs authorities are using highly sensitive new equipment to conduct extremely thorough searches on travellers and if they find any amount - no matter how minute - it will be enough to attract a mandatory four-year prison sentence."


Uh, yeah - no thanks. Plenty of much safer destinations with ACTUALLY modern legal systems in case there's a problem.
