Hi - we went to Dubai last month and stayed at Al Qsar on Jumeirah beach. Taxi back from MofE was 20 dirham with a tip. We found the taxis pretty cheap. Supermarkets cheap - we stocked up on essentials in the Carrefour, normal restaurants eg TGI - prices were on a par with UK.

Hope that helps - only the hotels were expensive for food and drink really

Taxi generally much cheaper than other countries. Bottle water - hopefully you should get some free bottles at your hotel? check this out. Buy local large/litre bottle water much cheaper. Pizza's from supermarkets good quality very good value. Eat in shopping mall's snack bars.

Sorry, don't know the answers to the rest - but someone will.

Here and there

MoE to Wild Wadi - 15-20 dirham (depending on tip)

Same from Madinat to MoE

Depends which bit of Jumeirah beach but should be no more than 30 dirham unless you're planning on going miles down the beach.

Everything else you have listed will be the same or cheaper than Norway. The supermarkets are excellent, with a very wide selection of food.

Always ask for local bottled water - Masafi or similar - anything imported (like Evian or Perrier) will cost more. Ask for local water in restaurants too.

You can eat in the malls for about £15 - £25 a head for an evening meal.
