I am dying to get away for the weekend. I hope that our booking for Club Royal Palm Jumeirah will be confirmed tomorrow. It's the peak season for tourists coming to Dubai and hotels are fully booked! So far, the first available reservation is on the second weekend of the current month. By then, we will be moving to a new apartment so we need all the weekend to arrange our things.
I am very thankful for the opportunity. The weekend package is a gift from a tour operator. I used to envy those people who win weekend stays on 5-star hotels. Thanks to the brilliant local search marketing idea, the expatriates get to experience luxury international hotels for free simply by joining competitions on Facebook, Twitter, or just by subscribing to online community newsletters. It is one of the many perks of staying in Dubai. International names are coming, reaching out to the locals.
Should I start packing?
