Lives in Dubai, United Arab Emirates

With a passion for food and restaurants I am always ready to try any sort of food from cheap street food to very expensive fine dining. Any cuisine, anywhere in the world. Love travelling with my partner and friends and discover as much as possible of our 'little' world.

The tallest free building in the world definitely is worth a visit. You might admire it from almost 50 km of distance, but the feeling of being at its basement and then observe the city from its observation desk, is unique.
The iconic 7 star hotel is a Must See. You might enjoy its view from the adjacent Jumeirah Beach Hotel and Clubs and Souq Madinat. If the exterior looks amazing, you should see the interior. Unfortunately, you have to book a room, a dinner or simply a drink to be allowed to enter. The cheap option is to book a table at the bar located at the top of the hotel where the minimum spending is of 300 AED (70 Euro/USD at current rates) each. Al Manarah restaurant is a superb fine-dining and it is worth a visit if you can allow yourself to spend some 400 Euro/USD each for a scrumptious dinner. Dress code to enter: Elegant.
A piece of art and history open to visitors with a guide explaining the Arab traditions and Muslim customs. Girls are required to wear long sleeves and cover their hair to enter. Proper clothing is available at the entrance of the mosque for those who are "under-dressed".
This modern recreation of an old souq (mall) is superb. With the stunning view on Burj Al Arab and plenty of dining, shopping and clubbing options it is the perfect location for families, couples and party animals.
Dubai's historical quarter. You should pay a visit to this place if you are interested in understanding how Dubai developed from a humble fishing port to the modern city we know.
In 2009 it was a tiny restaurant in Jumeirah Road. Now it has spread all over the city an it can be considered one of the symbols of Dubai Lebanese restaurants. The best branch is located in Dubai Marina where you can enjoy a stunning view.
Good and healthy food with great shisha available in many locations such as Souq Al Bahar, Dubai Marina Mall et al. I particularly like the restaurant setting.
Dubai is famous for the beaches, sunny days, good food and party mood. You will find all of those characteristic in Barasti. With alcohol, food, shisha and private beach available, Barasti is ideal for a quiet afternoon at the beach or a drink after dinner. No dress code applied. So come just as you are.
Located between Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall and Souq Al Bahar, the fountain show is a must see especially at night. Usually shows are scheduled every 30 minutes. The songs played include Thriller of Micheal Jackson, Andrea Bocelli and many other.
You cannot say you have visited Dubai if you did not visit the gold and spices souk. It is another world completely and you might find some luxurious object to buy or weird spices to buy as present from the middle east. You might want to visit the souq while visiting the Creek or Bastakya by taking one traditional boat (dhow) that connects the two benches of the creek.
The shopaholic heaven. 1,100 shops, an aquarium, an ice-ring, cinemas, restaurants and the access to Burj Khalifa, Souq Al Bahar and Dubai Fountain perfectly connected with the Metro. You might get lost in this city in the city. But only in this way you will really understand how big is it. I needed 2 years to orientate myself in it.
This new centre recently built in JBR offers a public beach, restaurants, cinema and shops. It is ideal for a stroll, some shopping and eating out. If you stay in Marina, it is very convenient to visit. It is a bit expensive though.
Considering that it is located in a desert area, this garden is really a miracle. It is not a must see, but if you have some hours to kill, it could worth a visit. Flowers beautifully arranged can make your day. Entrance fee: 35 AED. It is open only in winter/spring. Please check online before visiting.
I personally like the XO Saturdays at Armani when R&B music is played. One of the local's favorite clubs.
A spectacular view of the creek. A nice and quiet atmosphere. Good food, nice shisha and great service. The perfect location to enjoy a dinner with company.
Out of the thousands hotels available in Dubai, Atlantis is the one that offers the most. Room, top class restaurants, aquarium, dolphinarium, aquatic park, beaches, parties and concerts. Definitely one of the best accommodation options. The attractions can be visited/enjoyed paying the admission fee.
I stayed at Zabeel Saray a long week end and enjoyed the superb SPA services. Located in the palm it is a very quiet and relaxing place to enjoy. Other then SPA, restaurants and hotel, there is nothing to visit.
Another souk recently built in Dubai. It is close to Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa, hence it is worth a quick visit. Not at the same level as Souq Madinat, but still good. The numerous nightlife options make it a famous night destination.
A must do in Dubai. Book in advance and a car will pick you up at your hotel, drive in the desert and after some dune-bushing will drop you at a recreated traditional Bedouin camp. Enjoy some food and belly dance, watch the stars and come back home. You might decide to sleep over and leave the subsequent morning. An experience that most of the newcomers and turist love to do.
This hotel is locate in the outskirts of the City and hence it is very quiet and enjoyable. The restaurants are very nice and there you can feel to be in the middle of the desert. you can visit the hotel and use the facilities by Paying a fee, otherwise there is no much to do or see in it.
