Tips for your business trip
Business trips can be exhausting and stressful. You’re either on a plane, a hotel, a conference room, a car and so on. But when your destination is Dubai, your business trip can be an exciting experience, without being less productive.
If you organise your schedule thoroughly, your visit to Dubai should be nothing but smooth sailing.
Deciding where to stay in Dubai can be tricky for the sole reason that there are too many options, so choosing the right hotel for you can become a confusing task. There’s a constant flow of tourists and businessmen in the city that has led to a large variety of accommodation options, from budget hotel rooms to spacious apartments and luxurious hotels. The wise thing to do is to book a room at a hotel close to where you will be working or close to some means of transport. Jumeirah Emirates Towers, located near the Dubai International Financial Centre, offers all the comfort and facilities you could wish for and it is a great choice for business travellers.
Another thing you should pay attention to is planning your business meetings. Remember not to schedule any meetings on Friday since the working week is generally from Sunday to Thursday.
The business etiquette is important in Dubai, as in every part of the world. When meeting with business partners or clients it’s better to begin with some small talk rather than jumping straight to the important issues.
Transport shouldn’t be a problem in Dubai. The public transport system offers various ways of getting around, but you can also rent a car if you are on a tight schedule and want to move faster.
As your time is limited, you must choose wisely what to do when you are not working. One way of taking in Dubai’s beauty is by visiting the famous Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. The building itself is absolutely stunning, but the observation deck on the 124th floor offers staggering views across the city skyline.
Next to Burj Khalifa, you can admire the Dubai Fountain, the world’s largest choreographed fountain, a perfect spot for spending some time if you want to get your mind off of stressful matters. Since you’re here, you can also visit Dubai Mall, the city’s premier mall where you will find endless shopping and dining options.
For an evening of relaxation, go to Dubai Creek. The stream of water goes right through the heart of the city, separating Bur Dubai with its charming architecture reminiscent of old times from Deira Dubai’s glimmering skyscrapers. It’s a stunning view of old meeting new in a perfect harmony. Once you’re here, take the traditional Dhow cruise down the Creek while enjoying a delicious dinner, for a completely unforgettable experience. If there’s nobody to accompany you around the city on your spare time, you can bring an dubai escort along.
No matter how busy your business trip is, you should try to find a little time to enjoy Dubai. You won’t regret it!
