We stayed in The Pacific hotel in Deria Dubai. It is not a tourist hotel and has no amenities. It could have been cleaner but the sheets were clean and there was plenty of hot water. The staff were helpful.

The taxi that brought us to our hotel this morning was driven by what looked like a 15 year old lad, and was toe curlingly fast with multiple lane changes in very busy traffic, using a lot of horn and brakes. Was this a special show for the tourists? Probably not because there seemed to be other examples all around us. No ...
... a couple of Souks ( like marketplaces), huge shopping centres, went past temples, massive beach resorts. Motel is a 2 bedroom apartment, very nice. Weather today was about 35 degrees ish, air conditioning everywhere. Wouldn't want to come in Summer when it gets to 50 degrees! Drive on the wrong side of the road! Everything thing seems about same price at home so far. More hop- on off bus ...
