So a Korean travel agent advised me not to connect in Dubai because of the long lay-overs... (10-24 hours!) and the fact that I'd need a tourist visa for staying that long irrespective of whether I leave the airport or not. Does anyone know if this is true? I'm not connecting in Dubai but just wanted to know for future flights... I hate applying for visas especially since all embassies and consulates are in Seoul and I'm not.
Olga I also had one hour in Hong Kong but then I changed the flight to a later one, so now I have 5 hours to arrive and depart.
Goodluck and soak up that African sun :)
