Taking a cheap flight to Dubai is an adventure in and of itself, especially when the airport in the emirate is so spectacular.
This is the implication of a travel blog piece written by servicewoman Kathryn Gamble for the Fosters Daily Democrat.
Working in Afghanistan as the manager of the local Commander’s Emergency Response Program, she flew to Dubai International Airport and was amazed at its size and structure.
“The airport itself was the most grand I’d ever seen. Storey upon storey rose before me with golden sculptures and towering palms. In my jeans and sneakers I felt underdressed somehow,” she said, commenting that the English signs within the airport are extremely helpful.
Ms Gamble went on to note that Dubai itself looked like a “jewel” on the approach to the emirate.
Elsewhere, Emirates Airlines announced a new deal on cheap hotels in Dubai.
