My nearest bus-stop is giving the impression that Dubai is cheaper than it really is. The weekend rate at the Burj Al Arab hotel depicted in the poster is around 1.100 Euro a night, so when you fly by Dubai you're not going to be anywhere near this hotel or the water park next door. I agree that at 321 metres high it does dominate the Dubai coastline. And the evening choreographed light-show reminds me of Las Vegas. But you won't be getting much of all of this for 399 per person for 5 days. Arke does offer 3 nights in this famous hotel for 3520 Euro a person (including the flight).
