In this article I will briefly tell you about prices in the UAE (for food, in cafes and restaurants, as well as for excursions and taxis). Prices are as of October 2017.
I went to the Emirates for only a week and it was lazy rest, however, I can tell you what prices in supermarkets are for food, for a snack in shopping centers and restaurants, as well as prices for excursions

Prices for excursions in the UAE
You can buy tickets for Burj Khalifa online on the website >>>
You can see prices for some tours below
Taxis in the UAE are quite expensive. Embarkation 3-4 dirhams, then according meter. In Sharjah, payment is only for mileage, in Dubai – and for a simple traffic jam, you also have to pay. Over 1 km, approximately 1.5 dirhams. When crossing the border of the emirates, a charge of 20 dirhams is taken. There are also toll roads, and if a taxi driver is lucky on them, then he will add more. In Dubai, nightly rates are higher.
For a trip from Ajman to Sharjah (about 15 km) you will pay about 20-30 dirhams (if you show the taxi driver in time where to go).
From Dubai Mall to Sharjah there can be traffic jams in the evening. So, my brother rode 2.5 hours and paid about $ 120.
If you need to get from a Dubai airport to a hotel in Sharjah or Ajman, I highly recommend booking a fixed price transfer – you don’t have to worry about paying and explaining to taxi drivers who do not understand English or even the name of the areas in Arabic. The transfer from Dubai airport to Sharjah will cost from 41$, Ajman – from 51$. Book transfer here.
