THINGS TO DO IN AND AROUND DUBAI

1) VISIT THE BURJ KHALIFA:

The Burj Khalifa- the worlds tallest building is a sight worth seeing for. At night when the Burj comes to life with the various embellishments in the form of lights is a mesmerizing sight. You can even go to the top of the Burj to view the wonderful Dubai skyline. At the base of this huge tower lies a fountain where every hour different genres of music is played and the fountain comes to life, dancing to the rhythm of the song.

2) VISIT THE DUBAI MALL:

Adjacent to the Burj is THE DUBAI MALL – the worlds largest mall – which you can’t explore possibly in a day. It requires at least a week. Really!!! For shopaholics ‘like me’ it was heaven on earth. Continue reading

Only in Dubai, what?

Today I’m going to tell you all about a very bizarre ice cream. Yes! Who doesn’t love ice cream? But wait, because this ice cream will cost you a fortune.
It’s not your ordinary ice cream, it’s a $816 scoop of ice cream. You read the correctly, a $816 scoop. Dubai’s Scoopi Café has launched a $816 scoop of Black Diamond flavor ice cream, which contains the world’s most expensive Iranian saffron, black Italian truffle and 23-carat edible gold. The ice cream comes in a Versace bowl and spoon, which the customer gets to keep. Wow.
I know it’s unbelievable, I couldn’t just my own hands while typing this post. But it’s true.
So if you’ve got money in your hands, that you’ll really like to blow (do not ask me why I just wrote that. No more Bieber references! #sorrynotsorry) then go on!
But, you should know that it isn’t certainly the world’s most expensive ice cream.

Hot, glamorous and elegant were a few words that came into my mind as i set foot in Dubai. Being fascinated will be an understatement. I was in awe as i watched the city go by me, people bustling, sexy cars around each corner on the way to my Hotel apartment – The Golden sands.

One of the few reasons  of my visit to Dubai was not only exploring the culture and touring spots but to visit a few of my relatives who are currently residing there. My uncle who trained young aspiring pilots was an immense help to us To say that this trip although a bit short consisting of 5 days was fantastic would be an understatement . I truly enjoyed my stay. Continue reading
