I launched my new website design yesterday, and one of the changes I made was to add a Travel section on the blog. Personal and family travel has become important to me now my kids are older, and I am looking to feature more places and adventures in the upcoming years.
The exciting news is I’m going on a blogger getaway that my amazing agent Nuffnang organised with Dubai Tourism. A blogging getaway to Dubai! It’s one of the best places I can think of to do both business and explore. I’m heading over in early December, and will hunt out and feature some of the best family attractions in Dubai.
I’m excited…PLUS there’s a chance for one of YOU and a friend to join me on this trip. All the details are at the end of the post.
This is my “Yay! I’m visiting Dubai” face.
I’ve been Googling Dubai like crazy and I am putting my YAY face on potential places I may visit while I’m there.
Culture & Heritage
Dubai is one of the places on my bucket list. The main reason is it’s a fascinating place with many contrasts. Dubai marries Arabian traditions with diverse and widespread multiculturalism and this balance is so interesting. There’s a depth to the history of ancient Dubai, and this is displayed in many cultural and arts events. Alongside this history, the city offers cutting edge technology and the modern world at its best.
Shopping in the world’s largest mall – The Dubai Mall? Yes please! Just in time for Christmas!
I’ll be particularly looking for the best places to visit as a family, like the Dubai Mall Aquarium, Dubai Mall Under Water Zoo and Dubai Ice Rink.
A must on my list is to climb to the top of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. Burj Khalifa is only just one of the 625 hotel establishments in Dubai. Whether it’s five-star or budget — city stay, beachside resort or a desert retreat – Dubai has it all.
Outdoors & Adventure
A desert safari, watching wildlife or exploring the beaches: just some of the outdoor adventures available.
Events & Festivals
There’s always something fun on! Almost every weekend Dubai hosts at least one remarkable event, with a calendar encompassing arts and sport, food and books, music and lights, heritage, fashion and shopping.
So YAY! A lot of YAYS! Follow along on the journey with my fellow Bloggerati bloggers and maybe you could join me on this trip too!
