This will be my first visit in Dubai. I am coming for the Trade Exhibition on 5th of February. Anybody can help me 1) how to get from the airport to Rose Rayhaan Rotana hotel (how much I should pay for the taxi) 2) where I can exchange the money to get a good rate exchange or I can pay in Euro or USD? 3) Any place where I can spend an enjoyable time, have a nice dinner, not too far from the hotel...and... 4) is it possible to take a walk around Dubai or only taxi?...anybody wants to keep me company?? please reply to

I would appreciate any suggestions

All taxis are metered, although those from the airport have an additional initial charge.

The hotel you are staying in is brand new, so I wouldn't expect taxi drivers to know where it is. It's on Sheik Zayed Road, just south of the Trade Centre, but download a map and take it with you. Rotana Hotels: Middle East Luxury Hotels: Luxury Hotels in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Al Ain, Damascus, Hurghada & Sharm El Sheikh

There are exchange bureax all over the city, including at the airport when you land. I doubt you can pay in USD or Euros, as the loacl currency is UAE Dirhams. Credit cards will be accepted.

Ther a re losts of places pt go near where you are staying. You'll see other hotels and there are loads of cafes and restuarants on the street, at DIFC and at Dubai Mall which is very close.

You can walk in certain areas. Depends what you want to see. It's a big town, very spread out, and you will need taxis to get about.
