Dubai : A Dream Destination

Dubai : A Dream Destination

                          In my life long journey of exploring and discovering new things around the world I would delineate Dubai as a place where modern and unique architectural designs are possible. Dubai may be a minute place in terms of land area compare to other progressive cities in the world but in other aspects Dubai may top of the lists like in tourism industry and just recently Emirates Airline topped the list of worlds best airline. That’s why every day thousands of tourists are arriving in the world’s largest and busiest airport to date. Because the city never stops in excogitating something new and fresh to its tourists.
                         

Burj Al Arab

 In my experienced, the first thought that came to my mind about this place , Dubai, is desert, oil and camels but as soon as I stepped in to this magnificent City everything changed and my eyes were mesmerized of the things I saw. It was directly opposite to what I expected of this City, the skyline is stunning and everything is close to perfection.

Burj Khalifa

On my first day I went directly to the biggest mall in the world, The Dubai Mall,like every other malls I’ve been to there are some similarities with it, the thing is the mall houses also the worlds largest indoor aquarium the first of its kind in the Persian Gulf, The Dubai Mall Aquarium. The Aquarium has more than a thousand species of mammals lived in harmony with each other and it offers new attractions every now and then. After which I witnessed the ever famous “Dancing Fountain” just beside the majestic Burj Khalifa. Anyway Burj is an Arabic term for Tower. It was a picturesque view that I would love to keep forever. Before I ended my first day I stopped over to another mall, The Mall of the Emirates where you can find the first indoor ski attraction, The Ski Dubai. It’s also one of the many firsts that you can find here in Dubai.
                           

Dune Bashing

 Second Day I tried to experience the Arabian life through Dune Bashing, Belly Dancing and Camel Riding. I was kinda skeptical for a moment to try the 4×4 dune bashing I don’t really have so much trust for the driver then but when he started to drive all the fear in me squeezed me out and I just wanted to scream like there’s no tomorrow but unexpectedly I was liking it. I had so much fun the whole night through everything was new to me and I can assure you it’s a “must try”.
                             

@ Gold Souq
@ Gold Souq

                         On my 3rd Day I went to the Gold Souq. Souq is a Arabic term for “open market area”. When you want to buy gold in more affordable prices but with good qualities then that’s a perfect place for you. It’s also a place where you can find some Arabic goods and souvenirs for all your loved ones back home. You will never go wrong when you visit the Souq because everything there is made from authentic Arabic materials.
                           

The Atlantis Hotel
The Atlantis Hotel

On my last day in Dubai I went to the Atlantis Hotel and Aquaventure. The hotel is located on the tip of the Palm Jumeirah. It’s just one of the largest man made structure in the City. Largest in the sense that it is visible to the naked eye if you are in the moon or inside a satellite. The Atlantis Aquaventure is one of the largest water themed parks in Dubai because just a few kilometers away from it is the equally famed “Wild Wadi Adventure” themed park.
                              These are just few of the many things to explore in Dubai and I promised myself that time that I will be back to discover more of Dubai and the other Emirates. And everything fell perfectly in the right place as I was destined to work in Dubai after a few months I visited the beautiful City.
                                I will keep you posted about my life here in this grandiose City and my sweet escapades to relieve my feeling of homesickness back home. Please leave a comment below if you want to know more about this place. Shokran!

Wanderlust- Basic Tips before You Travel

Wanderlust- Basic Tips before You Travel

Have you ever found yourself dreaming and enjoying your roller coaster ride at Hongkong Disneyland? Did you feel the thrill of orange rush in Lego Land? How about the groupie with your friends in front of Universal Studios?

It is truly undeniable that traveling abroad has now become a part of one’s bucket list. However, it requires a lot of money due to the high cost of airfare and hotel accommodation. Though a lot of agencies have sprouted like seeds and offer affordable packages. It is still important that one chooses a credible and not a fly by night agency.

Traveling is not as easy as ABC and if it is your first time, it is important for you to know what to do.

First, are your documents ready?

Your passport is your ticket to your dream destination. It is important that your passport is readily available before you travel. In case you will avail tour packages it is a necessary to give your passport number for the reservation of your tickets. It is also a must to know whether the country you will explore requires a travel visa. This is a paper that permits someone to enter and stay in a certain country. A lot of countries require visa and it is very important for you to have a necessary research to avoid any hassle on your travel.

Second, Airfare and Hotel Accommodation

It’s true that traveling abroad may cost an arm and a leg. The cost of your travel may vary depending on:

  1. The country you would like to travel
  2. Your preferred airline
  3. The exact date of your travel

The cost of your ticket may depend on which airline you prefer. Agencies also offer complete packages including airfare, hotel accommodation, tours and transfers. Advertisements from agencies are really enticing. However, you should be careful in choosing one. It is important to know whether it is credible and trustworthy. Remember that you will hand them their money. Be sure that they will take you to your dream destination.

Third, is your money enough?

It is realistic to say that you will be spending a lot abroad. From your hotel, food, taxi and city attractions; if these are included in your travel package then you don’t have to worry. However, you will surely still spend a lot on shopping. You will see different branded items, from clothes, to shoes, to accessories and bags. You will see the biggest and the most famous brands so make sure your pocket is full. One more factor to know is the currency of the place you will travel. Some are strict when it comes to currency. So it is a must to know whether you are going to bring a yen or dirham. It would also be a great help if you will make a call to your bank. Let them know about your travel and the place you would be in. Surely you don’t want to have trouble during your shopping.

Fourth, A jacket or a shirt?

The clothes you will bring will depend on the climate of the country you will visit. It would be a great help if you read the information regarding the place. This is for you to find out if it’s winter or summer. Consider the date of your travel. Have a research to know whether you will bring a jacket or a shirt.

Fifth, Techie mode on.

Surely you don’t want to miss out with the places you are going to visit. You need to have a shot of the Eiffel tower, a groupie in the Universal Studios and a jump shot at the PETRONAS Tower. This would all be possible if you have your gadgets with you. But remember, electrical outlets are different all over the world. It would be advisable to purchase an adapter with different setting before you travel. So you never have to worry about your battery.

Sixth, never forget to say Hello!

Remember that your hello is not hello in all the countries. Remember to learn the basic words of the place you will visit. This may include greetings like Hello and Thank You. Since you are a foreign in their country, it is important to show respect.

Lastly, prepare yourself.

Your travel will sound very exciting. But never forget to prepare yourself. Do not travel if you are sick. Make sure that you are healthy and fit before your flight. Your travel will be long and tiring. Be sure that you are well prepared, mentally and physically.

The road to your dream destination will never be easy. But once you get there, it will surely be worth all the efforts.

If you are traveling with a baby, you must enjoy every bit of your destination. Traveling with a baby will provide a whole new experience for you and your family. Do not think of a baby as a hindrance, which will give problems in your travel. With each travel, you need to embrace the changes along the way. You can also learn how to deal with your future travels with your baby.

It is important to consider the best travel tips when traveling with a baby. You need to adjust. It’s true. But you need to consider the best tips to help enjoy your travel experience now that you have a baby. Plus, wouldn’t it be nice if you take pictures of your travel with your baby, then when your baby grow up, he will know that he’s already a part of your travel expedition?

So, take a look at these tips to keep in mind when traveling with a baby.

Travel Tips With Your Baby

You must label up – Your baby must not hand around at the luggage carousel. It might appear awkward. Instead, use a white marker and write your surname on the travel cot. This is better than when you use a luggage tag. It won’t fall off and you don’t need to find the tag every time.

Travel with small bags – Remember that you are now going to travel with a baby. So, the baby would become the most precious “luggage”. You don’t need to travel with big bags. Instead, pack with small bags. This will help you be comfortable on your route to your destination. It’s tough to carry your baby around, as well as your big bags. So, make sure to travel lightly.

Consider premium economy – Remember that you will breastfeed your baby, so make sure to consider the ideal flight. You want to at least be in a premium economy because it is essential for breastfeeding moms. Check the price of each flight. If the price difference is not that expensive, then go for a premium economy. You need to consider paying more because you need to make your baby as comfortable as possible.

Pack lightly – If you are traveling with your baby, make sure to pack lightly. As mentioned above, it is important to consider packing lightly for the benefit of your own baby. Bring only the essentials. There is no point of traveling with several luggages if you are also with your baby. It will only be troublesome. As much as possible, you have to travel with your baby alongside the essentials such as your purse, phone and the baby things.

Never overdo your travel – If you are used to traveling without a baby, then you have to adjust this time. During the times when you are traveling without a baby, your itineraries would be from the morning until late in the evening. But now, you have to make adjustments for the baby. Take things much slower. Also, look over to your baby. It is best if you visit tourist sites after your baby has woken up. Bring with you every essential baby needs.

You must eat early – Even with a baby, you can still eat fancy meals. However, make sure that you will head to the restaurant as early as possible. This way, it will be quieter, so your baby will be more comfortable. Also, consider the other people around you.

There you have it. It’s never a problem to travel with your babies. All you have to do is to consider the essential tips to help you travel with babies.What do you think of these tips? Let me know in the comment below.

How to pack on your next trip

How to pack on your next trip

If you have a schedule for your next trip, then you must know how to pack the essentials. Traveling does not require travelers to pack as many things as they can have. If you pack wisely, then you will not have a hard time figuring out which things to include and which things not to.

Whether you will travel to another country or locally, you still need to know how to efficiently pack for any trip. Perhaps these tips can help you. Take note that the things to be packed depend on your travel escapade. Are going on a camping? To the beach? Or in a place where there is snow? Needless to say, be sure to pack according to your travel needs.

The first thing to consider before you pack is to know that it is ideal to take as few as possible. You only need to bring with you the essentials. Some people, especially those first-timers, have one or two luggages when going on a trip. It is as if they will stay there for months! One more thing to know is the duration of your visit. Of course, if you will stay for a longer time, then you have to pack more clothing and personal hygiene kit. But also keep these things in mind when packing to save time, energy and space.

Keep These Things With You When Traveling

• Important travel documents – The last thing you want to do is to spend the night in some embassy because you forgot all the essential travel documents for your trip. Before you travel, be sure that you have all the important documents such as passport, cash and credit cards. This is important! If you want to gain access to another country, passport is your ticket. Keep this in mind, otherwise you would end up regretting your trip rather than enjoying it.
• All personal items must be in your carry-on bag – Documents, mobile phone, cash, charger and headphones must all be included in your carry-on bag. It is also a good idea to include your personal hygiene in your hand carry because you never know when you need to go to the bathroom. But be sure that your hand carry is light. Don’t clutter your carry-on bag with so many items that are non-essential.
• Choose what you need to include in your bag – The things to be included in your bag are your clothing, and other personal kits. Pick a bag that is versatile. You have to choose a bag that is easy to carry around and can withstand any force against it. You never know the terrains that you might encounter along your trip, so make sure that your bag is built to last.
• Pack your stuff- Like mentioned, you have to pack your stuff in the bag. These include clothing such as underwear, shirts, sleepwear, jeans and jackets. If your destination is on the beach, then make sure to include swimwear. Personally, sunglasses are a must have during travel. It helps you get a better look of everything, especially if it’s a bright, sunny day. Also, use comfortable shoes. For ladies, avoid high heels, because the last thing you wanted to do is to dance ballroom in the middle of your travel.
These things can help you have a better travel experience. It is not always essential to pack large chunks of your personal belongings. If you really want to maximize the comfort of your trip, pack lightly and wisely. These steps can help you have an idea of the important things to pack. Do you agree with these things? Do you have anything to add? Let me know in the comment below.
