Lonely Planet Dubai Encounter

* 1 Star

Hi, Sunil here with a review on Lonely Planet Dubai Encounter

I read this book in lightning speed and maybe I need to go back and read it a bit slower the next time around to get a better appreciation for it.

I have read some very good reviews on it but have given it a 1 star myself.

Remember, a 1 star isn’t a bad thing.

It just means that I personally found the book to be average.

You have to let me know if you agree or disagree.

This book discusses a lot of the basic touristy information that you would expect to get from a Dubai travel guide.

It promises to help you see Dubai city as much as you can in the limited time you have.

I found the Dubai maps to be a bit old (not updated) but maybe the newer versions will fix this.

Can’t really blame them much as Dubai is changing by the day.

Lonely Planet - Dubai Guide
The roads, street names are just now being established.

I mean everyone has a P.O. Box because you can’t really send mail where the streets have no name (just like Steve Bono would say).

I found the customized daily itineraries pretty neat. You can pretty much take one of these and make your plans all around it. It is a good travel book on Dubai with your standard tips and facts on the city.

The book provides good recommendations on places to go and shop. I have read it and agree with the material presented. It’s not as comprehensive as the other travel guide of Dubai – All Things Dubai.
