Summary Of The Book
Dubai For The Indian Traveller is part of a series launched by the Lonely Planet group that is particularly designed for the Indian traveller. Other destinations include Hong Kong, Bhutan, Singapore, France and Italy among others.
The author has placed special importance in developing a schedule that encourages safe and affordable accommodation, recommended eating places and the must-see sights that pander to both the allure of travel and also to the constraints of the wallet. It is an added advantage that Lonely Planet recruits its authors from residents of that particular destination and in this case, Anjaly Thomas is a travel aficionado who lives in Dubai.
Dubai as a destination is known for being a retail wonderland with innumerable choices in world-class shopping malls and designer boutiques. With that in mind, it is also a raging nightlife spot where the reader can find the most outlandish and sophisticated hangouts. The guide is designed with a planner that advises the Indian traveller on scheduling day-to-day plans that are easy to follow and provides expert advice to guide readers.
The focus is placed on developing this book for the Indian market and as such the author takes the tenet of value for money very seriously. In addition to informative articles on the best spots in town and the sightseeing destinations available to tourists, there is added practical information, which explores areas with financial considerations in place.
The book consists of nine colour maps and different images. The book also gives the reader in-depth information on Dubai landmarks like the Palm, Burj Khalifa, Burj al Arab, and Dubai Mall. The author also recommends the best places for authentic Indian food and other cuisines with helpful tidbits of information on the side that are user-friendly and clear.
