So, my trip to Dubai was just an amazing one; apart from the much needed break from work and all the social chaos. I was in Dubai to celebrate my parent’s 25th anniversary and of course shop.It was a weeklong trip but I must say even for a small place like Dubai it wasn’t enough. This was my second visit to Dubai but with so much coming up every day I had no time to repeat anything.
The Top at Burj Khalifa and dinning at the luxurious ‘ Al Hadheerah’ restaurant at Bab al Shams resort and spa(sheiks own private property) made me taste the traditional and modern side of Dubai.
Atlantis though didn’t stand up to all the hype that was created (talking purely about the dinner scenes at Kaleidoscope, it was way too crowded) but the water park and the Lost chambers aquarium underwater world was way too fun.
When in Dubai drive like they do, well technically it was impossible for me to think of driving there (God!! You won’t believe the list of strict rules they have but it’s for the citizen’s safety…so no comments on that) but we did hire a Limousine Pick and drop to Atlantis in Limousine Dodge (so even in Dubai it makes for an eye turner, totally felt like a celeb when everyone just stood around to watch who is getting out of the car *blushes*)
JBR- Jumeirah Beach Residence, is by far my favorite place to go when in Dubai, go once.. go twice or 10 times, it will always have something to charm you (also the only place that will give you a feel of traveling abroad, since its filled with desi people) hangout at the beach or grab something at the very European kind of cafes and restaurant your evenings are just sorted. My time at JBR was a little bit of beach..Little bit of shopping from Victoria’s secret and some mouth watering delicacies from Papa Roti.
All in all it was just a fabulous trip with a daily dose of English toffee from Tim Hortons, Garrett’s cheese Pop corn, The Hummingbird bakery’ Whoopie pie, a heavenly slice of blueberry cheesecake from cheesecake factory and of course- the Famous Shawarmas (do try Tasty Bites in Meena Bazaar and Al Mallah in Satwa..Strictly roadside food stations for best taste) also the night buzz seem to head to this nice open place called Filli cafe which has the most aromatic tea I have ever come across (saffron of course, it smells amazing even for a non tea person like me)
