important note (DUBAI CITY):
Dubai is a sovereign state known as an emirate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). A city within the emirate is also named Dubai. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are the only two emirates to have veto power over critical matters of national importance in the country's legislature.Dubai City is located on the emirate's northern coastline. Dubai has recently attracted world attention through many innovative large construction projects and sports events. This increased attention has highlighted labour rights and human rights issues concerning its largely South Asian workforce.

I did not booked in advance for my hotel accommodation due it is a general knowledge for me that there are much cheaper when I doing a walk-in. My strategic spot is on mall of emirates area because i plan to have a night hang-out. I found a 3-star hotel located exactly at the back of mall of emirates which was a 1st time for me to check-in on a very high rate (420 AED).
