ChanceSchmerr Posted May 9, 2019 Share Posted May 9, 2019 Hello All! I'm nearing the halfway point of my overseas deployment. Been a good run but it's time for a break, and for me that means meeting with my wife and son for some mid-deployment leave. Before I do that - I will be arriving in Dubai in a few days time and will be there for approx 48 hours before I fly. Staying at a hotel in Deira for a couple of nights, I am looking forward to a proper bed. Anyone out there with some specific Dubai recommendations? I've never been, so far my only plans are to go up the Burj Khalifa (I have a 5 pm booking for free from my hotel - whoohoo!) What else should I see and do? How much does it being Ramadan impact me (besides no eating or smoking cigars outside during the day)? Some specific Questions I have, if anyone can help: - I am there during Ramadan. I know i can't smoke in public - how does that affect the LCDH in town, are they open during daylight hours? Can you smoke inside them during Ramadan? - Any particular Cigar lounges that anyone can recommend for good comfortable atmosphere and a decent single malt selection? Looking to have a good night with a few fellow officers on the ship - Are the Regional Cigars that much more expensive at the LCDHs in town, compared to the Airport LCDHs? If so, by how much? I just don't want to feel like an idiot if I buy a box of Diplo Ammunition for $275 USD in town and at the airport I see it for $200 USD, something like that. - A question about the Airport LCDHs - I am flying from Dubai on Singapore Airlines, so Terminal 3, but I've heard Terminal 1 (the Emirates terminal) is the better LCDH. It sounds like from reading online, that once i'm on the secure side at Terminal 3, I can actually walk over to Terminal 1. Does that mean I can go shopping at both T1 and T3 LCDHs???? I'll add more time at DXB before my flight if this is true.... - Any other recommendations or underrated restaurants anyone can recommend? Lastly - if anyone in Dubai wants to meet up for a cigar, let me know!!! Looking forward to it! Cheers all, 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
