Lifestyle, fashion, and travel bloggers are everywhere these days, providing beautiful, inspiring, and sometimes envy-inducing accounts and photos of their day-to-day exploits. The really good ones have even risen to guru status, with readers and fans hanging on their every word, Instagram picture, and shopping suggestions!
One blogger who definitely ranks with the best is Aubrey Daquinag, a stylish travel lover who blogs for The Love Assembly and Condé Nast Traveller. We were so inspired by her Dubai travel diary – now, we can’t wait for the summer holidays.
Check out some of the stops she made that we think should be on everyone’s list when visiting Dubai:
Stay at The Address
Even the smallest, simplest room in this downtown Dubai hotel is a luxury experience. For style and comfort, The Address is the best pick.
Ride an Abra
Abras are small commercial boats that get people around like taxis – think of them as the Arab version of the gondola. It’s an easy, relaxed way to see older charming parts of Dubai, and it’s not too expensive either.
Eat at Patiala
Patiala is the only place to get authentic Indian food in downtown Dubai. Even if you’re not partial to the cuisine, the atmosphere is reason enough to have this one on your list.
Get lost in the Dubai Mall
It won’t be like any mall you’ve ever been to before! It’s the biggest in the world, and with over 1 200 stores selling everything you can think of, there’s absolutely no room for boredom.
Watch the Fountain Show
One of the mall’s main attractions is the daily fountain show, a choreographed water spectacular, shooting high pressure jet streams more than 15o metres in the air! You’ll want to see it again and again. Words: Modupe Oloruntoba Image: Instagram
