8 Dubai Ramadan hotel deals
Last year Dubai welcomed 11.6 million tourists. Although this stat is great for the economy, it certainly pushes up the prices on the city’s glossiest hotels. As we enjoy a short spell of quiet when the tourists (and many of the expats) have gone home, there are some serious savings to be had. Here’s our ShortList of eight Ramadan hotel offers that are almost too good to be true.
