I'm planning to book a fligh tonight with Emirates which will stop over at Dubai. Is it worth staying for a couple of nights?

I'm still scratching my head and not really sure what to do..?

I'll be travelling solo and on a tight budget. What do you guys think?

My destination is Tokyo.

Thanks all!

Dubai is expensive and a very strict muslim country. Lots of ex-pat foreigners languishing in it's jails there for very minor things. I would not stay there.

Tokyo is hardly the place for someone on a tight budget. Have you got some fairly cheap accommodation booked?

Lots of mini-marts about which aren't too badly priced for food.

The subway is easy to use. Press the destination button you want and feed in the small change. You'll see others doing it.

And i dont think it would be that expensive because the memories u will be taking with u are worth each penny spent. And if u need any help do contact me on

Thanks for the replies.

But I'm still not sure what to do. I might give it a miss and maybe if I have enough cash on the returrn home from KL to amend the booking and stop for a few nights.

I will have a WHV for Japan and a lump of cash but I'm sure Japan could easily exhaust this.
