UAE

I have been to the UAE five times. Read here about my adventures and check out my photo gallery.

Dubai has many interesting and fantastic highlights and tourists attractions, but one of the most known and impressive one's is the man-made palm shaped island Palm Jumeirah. Palm Jumeirah is often proclaimed the eight wonder of the world. Ever since we started visiting Dubai back in 2013, we have always wanted to see this impressive wonder from above, from another angle. For the daredevils there is the Dubai Skydive or a Dubai helicopter tour, but if that is a bridge too far there is now a fantastic alternative.

It seems like new exciting tourist attractions are popping up in Dubai every day. One of the newest additions to the city is Sky Views. I initially thought it was just a new viewing platform or observatory for outstanding Burj Khalifa views, boy was I wrong. Sometimes traveling also means taking on challenges, pushing boundaries and conquering fears, and we certainly did that when we signed up for the Edge Walk in Dubai.

Dubai Marina, it’s one of the most popular districts in Dubai, and it surely is our most favorite part of Dubai. It’s where we fell in love with Dubai during our first trip in 2013, and it’s where we come back every time we are visiting Dubai. So it makes sense that we share one of our favorite places in Dubai Marina with you. On one of our latest trips we stayed in Rove Dubai Marina and this is our review.

Who doesn’t dream about this? A helicopter tour is on many travelers and tourists bucket and wish list. In recent years we have been lucky enough to be able to experience a helicopter flight at a number of beautiful places, like the Grand Canyon, the Niagara Falls and New York City. Another destination we had on our wish list for a helicopter tour was Dubai.

It’s always a sport, to find decent and affordable accommodation with a prime location. Dubai has over 600 hotels, and has the world’s highest hotel occupancy rate. Finding a hotel in Dubai is not difficult, but finding something decent and affordable, that feels like a home away from home, can be a challenge.

Leave those challenges for Traveltomtom, as we managed to find the newest affordable hotspot in Dubai, and we are ready to tell you all about it! We’re sure you’re going to love this one just as much as we did! Free rental car included in the room rate! Can you believe it? Keep reading...

When you think of Dubai, most people think of the modern high-rise buildings, and the place where ‘impossible’ doesn’t exist. To be honest, so do I! But obviously it wasn’t always like this. There are a few districts in Dubai, like Bur Dubai and Deira Dubai, that are still quite authentic with souks, abras and Arabian Tea Houses. And we think these spots should be on your itinerary when visiting Dubai.

Scrolling through this Dubai blog I am sure you can't believe this is also Dubai. Therefore, according to Traveltomtom, doing a walking tour of Old Dubai should be listed as one of the best things to do in Dubai. You can feel the vibe in the photos below.
