The Dubai Explorer is a very useful book to give you lots of information about all aspects of the city – a recommended buy! It is now also available in “mini” visitor’s edition. For entertainment and where to eat, maps and general advice, it covers lots of areas. It is a really good general guide to the city.
The Entertainer is another recommended purchase. There are two books, one for Fine Dining and one for General use. These books contain loads of “buy one get one free” offers – including main courses at hundreds of restaurants, entrance to activities, places etc. You will save the money you spend on the books easily within one week! They are a really good buy and are available in various malls. One alternative option if you are single is to team up with another member of staff and buy one between you.
