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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
