The Ritz Carlton Hotel, Dubai is located in the Dubai Marina district right next to the chic café-lined JBR Walk. Jumeira Beach Residences (or ‘JBR’ to those in the know) provide a backdrop of pale tower-blocks while views stretch across lush landscaped gardens, over a wide beach and out to the blue seas of the Arabian Gulf. Here’s my reivew of this Dubai hotel.
Dubai is a diverse city so I’ve put together some must-dos which showcase five different characteristics of the city and its surroundings; nature, gastronomy, history, culture and, of course, shopping. So here’s my top five – what to see and do in Dubai…
Arva Ahmed is passionate about Old Dubai, its people, their stories, traditions and food. We went with her on a tour of discovery ‘A Food Lover’s Early Morning March’. We visited markets and souks and crossed the creek; we met traders and local people who shared with us their stories, their passions and spoke to us the ‘language of food’.
March has come and gone in a flash and we’re into April already. The weather’s warming up, we’ve got the whole summer ahead of us and today, 01 April, is The Travelbunny’s fourth birthday! Crazy that I started my blog on April Fool’s Day although some would say apt!
I’d never thought of Dubai as a leading gastronomic destination but with over 200 nationalities living in the city there’s a huge culinary diversity and range of flavours including the city’s own Emirati fare and Arabic traditions.
Skyscrapers don’t come any taller than The Burj Khalifa and as we arrived I craned my neck and looked up, and up, and up. Soaring high into the sky above Dubai at 830 metres to the tip it’s the world’s tallest building.
