Burj Al Arab

One place you have to go whether you are a visitor to Dubai or you have lived there for years, is the Burj al Arab. Of course it is known as the only 7 star hotel in the world and it certainly lives up to that reputation. The cheapest option is to go for drinks in the skyview bar. You need to have a booking to get in and the minimum spend is 275 dirhams per person (which gets you about 3 drinks - ouch!). But the views you get from the bar and the ambiance of the hotel itself are also what you are paying for - the hotel has indoor fountains and amazing decor. Another thing to do is to go for afternoon tea there - you get the most amazing selction of teas together with sandwishes, cakes and scones, all totally delicious!

Dubai's Waterparks

So I have been to all 3 of the waterparks in Dubai - Wild Wadi, Aquaventure and Dreamland Aquapark and to be honest they all have their place and perhaps their own niche so it depends on what you are looking for. My preference I would say is Wild Wadi just because it has some great surf board type rides which the others don't. Dreamland is great if you have small kids or are on a budget and Wild Wadi and Aquaventure could get either vote otherwise I would say. In any case get yourself an Entertainer book to get a 2 for 1 voucher. Have a look at some of my videos on bother Aquaventure and Wild Wadi on youtube

Dubai Shopping Festival at JBR

So Dubai Shopping Festival has started and there are plenty of things going on to entertain everyone. Down at Jumeirah Beach Residence there is a funfair on the beachfront as well as the market, which normally opens at weekends, but is now open every day during the Dubai Shopping Festival. The Dubai Jazz Festival has also kicked off at JBR with performances on a stage there during the evenings. Plenty to do for the family!
