My Trip to Dubai Sep 2015

We stayed at Manzil Downtown Dubai, which we stayed at in our last trip to Dubai. Our room was on the Seventh floor, but unfortunately we didn’t get Burj Khalifa view room, other than that we loved the Hotel, Special thanks to Ahmed Mohamed :), which provide us with one of our rooms in early time, and managed to get us a late check-out.

Uber Taxi Service:

This is a great service provided in Dubai for the Taxi service, and I had a great experience  though I didn’t go in a ride with them. The internet was so bad and a request been submitted from my side and I wasn’t aware, so the Taxi came to pick us, but we left. The Taxi driver send us a text and we told him that we left, and I send email on this regards, so the company refunded my money back. Will definitely use them in our next trip. Thanks a lot.

My trip to Dubai Apr 2015

This is a non-shopping trip to try new Restaurants and Cafes. We traveled on Friday morning and returned Saturday night by FlyDubai

 

We rent a car from Dollar through FlyDubai website, and everything went smooth and perfect.

We stayed at Manzil Downtown Dubai, the entire experience was beautiful, beginning from the reception to the check-out. Our room on the fifth floor with beautiful view of Burj Khalifa Tower

We visited the Miracel Garden, and unfortunately we were late we didn’t have the chance to see the butterflies, they close at 6pm. And since it was Friday it was very crowded, I will not recommend to go on weekends or afternoon. Try to go early morning, I think they open 9am. But it was amazingly beautiful.

One of the new places that we visited for the first time is Al Bastakiya Old Town, which is located in Al Fahidi, Oud Metha, Dubai. Make sure you go at night, not everything open in the morning.

 

 

Restaurant that we visited:

Em Sherif

Make sure you reserve for your visit, otherwise you will not be seated. The food was amazingly tasty and it’s set menu, the only thing that you will be ordering is the drinks, which is not included in the set menu (Not Acceptable). They served us Large Water without asking, and then they charged us for it.

They start serving the food once you requested, and start with cold mezze , Hot mezze, Grilled, then end it with dessert. Make sure you are very hungry, and it’s better to go in large group

One Day Trip To Dubai

One day trip to Dubai is joyful especially when you have awesome friends. We planned to go to The Farm “Al-Barari” for breakfast, then to the Miracle Garden, but the weather didn’t help ‘was hot’. Instead we went to The Dubai Mall; we had and dessert coffee at the Mado Cafe. We did a lot of shopping, and we end the visit with the beautiful Eataly Gourmet.
