Your date with Dubai could not have been planned better. A palatial home of Arabic dreams, the Madinat Jumeirah was nothing short of magnificent! The private resort helms an architectural record, with a concept of recreating life as it used to be for residents along the Dubai creek. Complete with waterways, abras, wind towers and a bustling souk.


An opulent Disneyland all by itself. This resort is the largest of the emirates with 3 boutique hotels, a courtyard of 29 summer houses, over 40 restaurants and bars that serves the best gin and juice cocktails! Not to mention a private beach and pools, shaded by palm trees to gaze at the creek with the iconic Burj Al Arab in the horizon. Though I should probably mention that dining at the resort was unquestionably overpriced, staying at the Madinat Jumeirah is simply a must when in Dubai.

One would notice after her first jaunt to the desert, that it is not far from the city. I imagined the red dunes to be an entire day's journey, but in fact it took less than an hour. My mother and I engaged Desert Safari Dubai for a dune dashing frenzy in a desert jeep, and it was the single most thrilling ride of my life! More than any roller coaster. EVER. No roads, no rules. There were multiple moments I thought the jeep would fall belly up, and a scene from the Fast and Furious flashed by while Whiz Khalifa said see you again.
