Dubai & Abu Dhabi
For those with an untreatable case of wanderlust, this city is a traveler’s dream. Dubai has historic sights, futuristic architecture, night life and out-of-this-world attractions, exquisite cuisine and more. Due to it's richness in culture and history a trip without a tour would be an injustice to your visit. Here are a few things you should know:
There are two seasons you may encounter during your visit — hot and hotter, however it is customary for hotels, motor coaches and tour guides to have air conditioned amenities. Tourist flock to the UAE year round so no matter what month you go in you're bound to have a great time. Though it is rich in Muslim traditions, it is one of the most culturally diverse places on the planet with some 90 percent of Dubai’s more than 3 million residents are citizens of other countries. It is also one of the safest countries in the world.
The Maldives is definitely a place you should visit at least once in your lifetime. It's not your average trip to the Caribbean, here things are a bit more slow pace and the focus is on the level of luxury. The beauty of this island is out of this world, so a trip to the Maldives is all about taking it easy and enjoying the good life, lots of sea, sun and self indulgences. Expect to eat delicious food and prepare for some serious relaxation because shoes are unnecessary, work is forbidden, and drinking champagne is encouraged.
The Maldives is made up of around 1,190 individual islands peppered across the Indian Ocean. There are 26 different atolls (or collections of islands). There are only a handful of places around the world where bio-luminescent phytoplankton light up the water year round, if you're lucky you'll be able to catch this rare sighting in the Maldives. Essentially every resort in the Maldives is on its own private island, and outside of what they have to offer you won't find any no malls, movie theaters, or food, drink, and entertainment options.
