• 10 Reasons To Choose Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort in Abu Dhabi

     

    Two years ago, when I was searching for accommodation in Abu Dhabi because I was visiting the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, I came across the Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort for the first time.

  • Old Dubai Walking Tour | A Different Side of Dubai

    When you think of Dubai, most people think of the modern high-rise buildings, and the place where ‘impossible’ doesn’t exist. To be honest, so do I! But obviously it wasn’t always like this.

And we think these spots should be on your itinerary when visiting Dubai.

    Scrolling through this Dubai blog I am sure you can't believe this is also Dubai. Therefore, according to Traveltomtom, doing a walking tour of Old Dubai should be listed as one of the best things to do in Dubai. You can feel the vibe in the photos below.
