Camel rides on our desert safari
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, had been one of my bucket list destinations for a while. I think that I'm at an age when you want to do more than stay at a beach (you can do that in Dubai too). Although there is certainly a need for that sometimes too. When the opportunity came for me to go there with the Dubai Tourist Board, I couldn't pass it up. In a word, Dubai is OVER THE TOP. The city is so new, so modern and the construction just keeps on going.
We were lucky to be able to stay at the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai. I was a spectacular hotel right beside public transit. And we saw other over the top resort...Versace, Armani, Fairmont, Park Hyatt, just to name a few.
We visited the Gold and Spice Souk, Burj Khalifa, Ski Dubai (yes we skied indoors a the Dubai Mall) and we were hosted on a Desert Safari, where we rode Camels. When we had a private golf lesson, we even think we saw Tiger Woods boat on the Dubai Canal.
The culture is so very different from what we in the West are used to. And we felt VERY SAFE.
Whether you just want a brief 2-3 night layover or a more extensive trip, just let me know.
