How much money

Will be visiting Dubai in a couple of weeks, will spend 3 days there, have booked tickets for Burj Kalifa and afternoon tea at Burj al Arab. Just wondering if anyone can give us an idea of how much cash to take with us mostly for taxis, meals and drinks as we can use cc for any bigger purchases.

I'd swap around £100 at the airport and then you'll have the correct currency for the taxi from the airport and some spare. That'll pay for some taxis and some drinks and as you say you can then put larger purchases including meals on a credit card which is what we do.

If you run out of dirhams in the meantime you can always swap some more as there are lots of ATM places.

Here and there

I do the same.

Change £100 to dirham at Dubai airport (NB take English notes to change) and then use an ATM to draw out any more dirham I need
