    Hello there,

    So I've been making some nice steady income last couple of months and I was thinking I would take a small break next month and maybe take my family for a small 4 day vacation.

    I basically want to buy myself some clothes, accessories, geeky stuff etc. I've got a baby sister, who I believe is going to buy a lot of stuff too. My parents would probably want to see some nice places, enjoy food and stuff.

    I stay in India. So I was wondering what place would you suggest I'd rather go - Singapore or Dubai?

    P.S: I am open to other ideas.

    Dubai !!

    I went there 3 months back and damn its one of the best holidays i have ever been on. I was 17 at the time and both me and my girlfriend and friends had a whale of a time. Its a very clean place , Everyone is helpful.

    Few places you must visit:

    Atlantis Hotel and Waterpark (Palm island)
    Palm island (Great to see on its own)
    Golden Souk - Basically like india but in dubai , Lots of replica clothes , The best gold jewellry etc)
    Burj Al Arab - 7 star hotel , I had lunch in there and it wasnt cheap but definately worth it to go there :)
    Burj Khalifa - Tallest building in the world and the fastest elevator haha
    Burjuman centre
    Mall of emirates
    Dubai mall (One with the world's biggest indoor aquarium)
    Deira (Like a mini city over the other side of dubai)
    Jameira beach , I have never seen such nice sand and a clean beach in my life (located on the side of Burj al arab hotel)

    Thats just a small list. If you need more let me know and i will tell you where the best places are !!

    Also if you didnt want to hire a car the taxi's are very cheap. In UK i was paying £7/$12 for 2 miles in a taxi. Out there 2 miles is around 40p/0.70c haha , Cheapest taxi's anywhere !!!

    Obviously Dubai. The beauty and enjoyment of vacation lies in Dubai. The shopping from Dubai is the world famous and too much appealing especially for the women. So don't waste much time on thinking and go for the Awesome trip to Dubai.
    Cheers.:cool:

    You are obviously mainly interested in shopping so I would say Dubai! I would also advice you to get a room in the mall's hotel ;) Hehe

    PS: Be warn though, don't go in June, July or August (stay away in August!!), it is way too hot over there at those months..
