Lavish Lee takes Dubai the Thrifty Way

Who says that only the rich can afford a trip to Dubai?!? Well I went to Dubai April 2017 and I'm nowhere near rich!


Where did I purchase my trip to Dubai and for how much?

I bought a 7-day trip to Dubai on Groupon for $1,200! Yes, Groupon!

What was included in the Groupon for $1,200?

  • 4 star hotel – Savoy Suites.

  • Straight flight to Dubai on Emirates leaving from and returning to D.C. (IAD) (FYI – Emirates is like the best airline – the flight was 14 hours and I ate 3 good meals and all the alcoholic beverages were included as well. YOU PAY FOR NOTHING!)

  • Roundtrip airport/hotel transfers

  • Daily buffet breakfasts at the hotel

  • Two tours: Buffet -Dinner boat cruise and half day tour of Dubai (I went to museums etc.)

When I became a sun goddess on the Desert Safari

Major Key Alert: Anything I purchase the benefit has to outweigh the cost. As you can see from above this is like the best deal to get to Dubai for so many days! So how can you get the price to come down even more? Ebates.


Additional tours purchased outside of Groupon prior to going on the trip:

  • Desert Safari – I purchased this on Expedia for $75. The desert safari included the following:

  • Guided off – road jeep tour in the desert

  • 15 min ATV ride
