Indulge Into Some Exciting Places to Visit in Dubai

The Dubai Desert Safari

Every place in the world has something unique to offer to the rest of the world, no matter how little or compressed that might be. This does not however mean that Dubai has little to offer, although one would all the same wonder about the land, born and raised desert, where children are born and raised in the sands. The desert today is one of the biggest attractions in Dubai, and being one of her natural heritage, Dubai has made something out of the sands. There is desert racing and desert adventures among dozens more activities in the sands today in Dubai. It is certainly a place of wonderful experiences.

Dubai Market Centers

However still, the best you can do with what you have is making use of it, developing it the best way you know how and rest assured that the nature will take its course and bless the work of your hands. This is exactly what Dubai has done. She refused to be called barren just because rain was as precious as gold to her, and decided that she would make use of her desert and bring forth the potential within her, in order to be able to sustain her children today and in the future. As we read through these words today, Dubai is one of the most exciting destinations, and even though plants and wild animals may be little as compared to other places in the world, surely the works of Dubai’s hands have been blessed, and it is these works that make people throng there everyday, every holiday and anytime for an exceptional experience.

It is one of the biggest market place, Dubai, and one of the most expensive places in the world. While visiting the land either for leisure or for shopping, one cannot help but take a glance at some of the most exciting landmarks and tourist attractions.

Some of the best malls in Dubai include Mall of the Emirates,  Dubai Mall and Diera City Center.

The Burj Khalifa

As mentioned above, everything, or maybe let’s say almost everything in the land of Dubai is man-made, however it is good to always give credits where it is due. Another greatest tourist attraction in Dubai is the sky piercing Burj Khalifa, which is 828 meters. This is exceptionally marvelous to watch from up close. Now imagine looking down on the earth from the top of the building. It is simply Amazing.

The Palm Jumeirah

Palm Jumeirah is another beautiful man-made archipelago. It is wonderful island and anyone would love to experience life from within. Leaving you without words and your mouth wide open, the Palm Jumeirah is an attraction on its own.

Some of the attractions on the Palm include the Atlantis Hotel, Aquaventure, and The Lost Chambers.

The Dubai Museum

Of course as we all know the greatest attraction of any given country is its museum. This is also found in Dubai, where a stunning deserts fort called Al Fahidi boast the housing of the Dubai Museum. Inside the museum are the artifacts and old memories of the Dubai culture, which will take anyone back in time and place you in a perfect place to be able to tell and relate about the land of Dubai and her people.

The Dubai Underwater Zoo

I cannot close this without mentioning and talking about the one of the most exciting place in Dubai waters; the underwater zoo and aquarium in Dubai. This place, for lack of better word is Exceptional, and anyone will love the experience they receive from seeing and interacting with aqua habitats in a very special way.

The above mentioned places are just but a few tourist attractions in the land of Dubai, but one thing for sure is that, entering the land is easy, exciting is hard, due to the beautiful and good things people you will see and experience around. Enjoy your visits to Dubai.

Best Ultimate Road Trips in the World

Get inspiration for your next holiday with this list of ultimate destinations to explore by car.

Broken up by region, these killer road trips also make for some pretty good arm chair viewing for those who can’t take the time off for an actual getaway.

Africa: Skeleton Coast, Namibia

Difficulty rating: Advanced

This rugged shoreline covers a third of Namibia’s coast, stretching some 650km from the seaside town of Swakopmund to the Angolan border. The scenic but demanding stretch of road is so called for its tragic past – as a magnet for shipwrecks. It’s not an easy drive so mind your speed on unsealed roads and never drive off the road on fragile salt pans and lichen fields.

Asia: The Grand Trunk Road

Difficulty rating: Intermediate

The Grand Trunk Road is one of the longest – and oldest – major roads in Asia. It has connected the Indian subcontinent from east to west for more than 2000 years. The route runs from Chittagong in Bangladesh all the way to Kabul in Afghanistan, and passing through India and Pakistan on the way.

Australia: The Great Ocean Road

Difficulty rating: Easy

This nearly 250km stretch of road along Australia’s south east coastline is also the world’s largest war memorial. Built by returned soldiers and dedicated to those who fought in World War I, the road has become an important tourist attraction for the region with several key sights spread along the coastline. The stretch from Lorne and Apollo Bay is said to be the most picturesque, with towering cliffs, beautiful beaches and lots of opportunities to stop for surf.

Europe: Basque Circuit, Spain and France

Difficulty rating: Intermediate

circuit of just under 500km, the loop will take you through Spain’s Basque country and on to the Pyrenees in France. Head south from Bilbao on the B1623 and turn east towards Pamplona, before taking the N135 through the Pyrenees. At this point the drive becomes more demanding, but it’s well worth it for the spectacular views. After a brief sojourn in France you’ll head back west towards Bilbao along the stunning Cantabrian Corniche, offering dramatic views of the mountains above on your left and the sea below to your right.

Middle East: The King’s Highway, Jordan

Difficulty rating: Intermediate

This ancient path, stretching 280km through Jordan’s countryside, is a more scenic alternative to the modern Desert Highway. A trade route in the ancient Middle East, the road is steeped in history. It takes at least six hours to drive the windy road but the reward is great. Motorists get a glimpse into rural life in Jordan while en route to one of the country’s most famous sights – the archaeological city of Petra.

The Americas: The Pan American highway

Difficulty rating: Depends on location

Stretching from Alaska to Argentina, this 48,000km network of roads will take you through almost all countries in the Americas. It is estimated to take more than 200 days to complete. Don’t forget to investigate special requirements for international driving permits and border crossings. But be warned: due to a 100km stretch of rainforest and swamp land between Panama and Colombia known as the Darién Gap, it is not possible to cross between South and Central America by car.

If you’re in the market for a suitable car, Carmudi has some great deals on offer.

 

 

Three Reasons You Should Consider Studying in UAE

If you’re considering studying in Europe then think of an option that’s far more exciting and out of left field. Institutions such as the American University in Dubai, the London Business School’s Dubai campus and the American University of Sharjah, and many others offer the best of both East and West with world-class educational facilities that are up to UK and US standards, as well as unique opportunities to broaden your horizons.

Below are some of the upsides of going to a school in UAE:

Immerse Yourself in Another Culture

The culture in the United Arab Emirates is tolerant, open and friendly. This is a place with top class medical facilities, museums, shopping, sporting facilities and great food too. There’s a diverse mix of nationalities and ideas here. So throwing yourself into the melting pot will mean you discover a unique world view and new sides to yourself.

In the UAE you will be at the unique cross-roads where the best of innovation and technology meets old traditions. In Abu Dhabi City, you will find a thriving cultural epicenter with an area dedicated to museums such as the Louvre and Guggenheim among many others.

High Living Standards

Life on campus is well catered for and there are plenty of flexible and reasonably priced accommodation facilities for students that are safe, clean and convenient. Supermarkets and shopping centers are designed for the locality and convenience of students and prices are comparable to back home.

Global Perspective

Any coursework from an international institute in UAE will bode well on your CV. The international perspective is favored by most prospective employers. Plus there’s the chance to experience a style of living that’s completely new and exciting compared to the hum-drum life back home.

A broad, international curriculum focuses on globally relevant topics that affect us all. This pan-global perspective is key to being informed and educated and is completely unique to the region.

There are study abroad experiences and then there are eye-opening study abroad experiences that will stay with you forever.

If you are considering higher education abroad, do take a look at the universities in UAE. Some of them are world class.

Streets of Paris

During my trip to Europe last month, I also got a chance to visit Paris. My stay in Paris was for 36-hours only. As they say, you learn the most about a city by walking in her streets. So I followed this advice and explored the city by walking in the streets of Paris as much as my feet allowed me.

Whatever Paris I could explore during my short stay in the city, I found the city to be very artistic. That’s the only word I can think of to describe the city. It’s not a modern city in terms of architecture. Most buildings (at least in the part I explored) are pretty old with traditional look with those famous Parisian windows and balconies that you see in pictures and moves. The streets are full of art galleries, museums, music shops, and of course, French bakeries (not to mention bars). Even though the shopping places close at 8, the restaurants and cafes are open until late night and they are packed until the closing time. One cannot be bored in Paris considering all the art and history and theater and music that the city has to offer.

Below are some pictures that I took while wandering in the streets of Paris.

Enjoy.
