About the Author

Andrea is a Los Angeles-based writer, editor and translator who owes her love for languages and travel to her mother who lugged her off to foreign lands when she was still a toothless toddler. After completing high school in Germany, Andrea left for London and stints as an au-pair, market researcher and foreign language correspondent. In the mid-'80s she swapped England for Southern California and the hallowed halls of UCLA. She then hit the job market armed with a degree in English literature and charted a course in travel journalism. Assignments have taken her to all continents but Antarctica and her work has been published in several countries. Andrea joined the fleet of Lonely Planet writers in 1995 and has updated and authored guides to Los Angeles, California & Nevada, Germany and Western Europe.

Finally a thorough guide on Dubai Nov. 8 2010
By marathongirl505 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After buying and reading quite a few different guides, I had the pleasure to read this one, Lonely Planet's guide on Dubai. This is BY FAR the best guide on Dubai. It covers everything: History, architecture, cultural aspects, customs, as well as recommended visits in each neighborhood. It is thin and light enough to take on a trip, yet very complete and thorough. The best buy out there for those wanting more info on Dubai.

Just what I was looking for July 24 2011
By Pat J. Vanhooser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great information about Dubai. I am working in Afghanistan and wanted a book that would give me some ideas of what to do during the long lay-overs in Dubai when I travel. This fits the bill. Logical, to the point, and just what you need to know to get around the town.

Terrific Book! April 6 2012

This is a terrific book. I recently visited Dubai for a month and used this book constantly while I was there. There are adequate maps, an adequate index, and even highlights of adjacent emirates such as Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. I highly recommend this Lonely Planet Guide.
Pretty good. Nov. 28 2012

Pretty good review book as far as they go. Normally, I buy Rick Steve's guidebooks but he only travels in Europe. From what I had to choose from, it was good. Lot's of good information about eating, travel to and fro Dubai, the sites, and also the history of Dubai. There were also some pretty good tips on taking the train and getting around in general. Also, I liked the part about the Mall. For your first trip, definitly pick this up. What is doesn't tell you however, is that most flights from leave Dubai at 1 or 2 AM so the airport is busiest then. Also, it would have been nice to know that the customs wait can be excruciatingly long because the agents are slow and generally don't give a hoot about you waiting.
