The Dubai Diaries: 5 Key Ingredients For Planning The Perfect UAE Adventure

Regular readers of my blog will know that I love to explore the local surroundings. However, we all enjoy visiting new countries too, especially as international travel is more accessible than ever. Dubai is one destination that I need to see, and I’ve already started planning.


I’ve yet to book anything in concrete, but the plans are already in place for when I do. So if you’re looking to visit in the future, this advice will hopefully help.

#1. A Great Place To Stay


The first thing to look for in Dubai is the right choice of accommodation. The climate means that a comfortable room at night will be vital. Meanwhile, the opportunity to enjoy an unrivaled sense of luxury means that a great pool will be on the agenda also.


After visiting jumeirah.com, I’d love to book a few nights there. That’s probably little more than a fantasy, but Dubai boasts a long list of fantastic hotels and holiday apartments. And that should be the foundation of a great vacation.


#2. Great Food


Anyone that reads my blog on a regular basis will know that enjoying great food is a continued ambition of mine. I would imagine that great food wouldn’t be quite so high on everyone’s list. Nonetheless, it is a crucial element that goes a long way to creating the perfect holiday.


My research shows that Dubai has plenty to offer in terms of great restaurants. However, I’m most excited about the prospect of eating by the backdrop of beaches, sea, and bright lights.


#3. See The Desert


Dubai is well known for its great shopping and immense luxury. On the other hand, it also boasts a number of enchanting natural rewards. Quite frankly, a trip to the UAE without visiting the Arabian desert would be a missed opportunity.

As well as the incredible scenery, visitors can experience camel rides and a variety of activities. VIP tours at myconcierge.com underline how unique and enjoyable this part of a Dubai holiday can be. Regarding excursions and activities, this is top of the list.


#4. Do A Day On The Beach


Dubai is one of the Middle East’s most popular destinations, and the beaches are one of the most important factors for that popularity.


Even if you love being active, it’s hard to resist a day spent on one of the many great beaches. It’s a chance to relax, top up the tan, and maybe a play a few sports. Given that a holiday is a perfect chance to recharge the batteries, a day at the beach sounds like a winner.


#5. Shop Til I Drop


I’m probably not the world’s biggest shopaholic. But with one of the world’s biggest shopping malls on the doorstep, it seems almost impossible to resist. In truth, simply visiting thedubaimall.com has got me excited in anticipation.


Aside from shopping, the massive venue boasts ice skating and an aquarium. With cinemas and other cool features included too, at least one day will be spent here. And, yes, I will be trying out some of the food establishments also.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
