Traveling has become so much easier in the past decade or so. However let’s face it, one of the most difficult parts of flying abroad for vacation is planning the itinerary. Being a foreigner, it is tough to figure out where to go, what to do and what to see. It would be so much more convenient to get a tour guide, but this is not always affordable. Buying a guide book is a cheap and effective way to get around high costs.
Application developers Leading Brands JLT ups the ante by coming out with a wonderful e-book travel guide called Dubai Guide 2012. This is certainly one app for the iPad that is worth buying if you are heading over to this rising tourist destination. It is more affordable than a live tour guide, and more handy and interactive than a book.
Basically a guide of all the hottest spots in Dubai, this is extremely useful for foreign travelers. You will be able to get a hold of rich insider information from the most popular dining spots to the lesser-known treasures hidden around the city. Packed full of details, users are provided a wealth of tidbits to make an informed decision where to eat, shop, party and sightsee. Having experienced Dubai first hand, I can tell you that this metropolitan Middle Eastern city on the Persian Gulf is not to be missed. From the Burj Hotel to the Palm Islands, Dubai is a cosmopolitan center akin to Las Vegas here in the states.
Unlike books that offer limited visuals on what a place is all about, the Dubai Guide 2012 feature fun videos showcasing the best and brightest spots in the area. The videos will make visitors even more excited to explore the streets of Dubai. Not only tourists will enjoy this nifty little application, but also locals who may want to learn more about their native land.
Leading Brands is known for their top quality interface, and Dubai Guide 2012 is definitely no different. Wonderful photos showcase the beauty of Dubai, complemented with blurbs of informative but enjoyable text. It is simple to navigate, and pleasing to the eye.
Dubai Guide is available at the App Store for $1.99.
