Having Tea At The Top of Burj Khalifa, Dubai

There are such a variety of spots far and wide that can make your heart pulsates. Among these spots, I can in any case recall Dubai. It’s a stunning spot to endeavor through. In the wake of investigating the nightlife of Dubai, and conquering the wild on a desert safari, what better route for a blogger to remunerate himself than a reviving container of tea in the mists? About Burj Al-Khalifa From the beginning, Burj Al-Khalifa, the tallest building on the planet has all the earmarks of being the encapsulation of bombastic acting by the Dubai sheikhs, yet there is a cheerfully mixed sting to the story. The building was not exactly finish before the worldwide subsidence in 2008 which hit Dubai especially severely and the main way they could finish the building was to get cash from the neighboring emirati Abu Dhabi.(Image by Les Butcher) Initially called “Burj Dubai”, there was one condition to the credit that the tower would need to be renamed after Sheik Khalifa canister...

Dubai Traveling Tips

Dubai Traveling Tips

Just as the old saying goes ‘when you go to Rome, do as the Romans do’, the same applies to Dubai. Located in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is a glistening metropolis that has flashy high-rises and enormous shopping centers. However, the city is well known to be ultra conservative. Breaking any rule while in the city can get you hefty penalties. This therefore needs the visitors to be trying their best and blend in with the locals. Here are some of tips you may need to consider before you travel to Dubai. Check Your Dressing It is advised that you go for clothes that are less revealing or go for more conservative attires. This is mainly because the city is located in a Muslim emirate that dislike revealing clothes such as spaghetti strap tops or even shorts. Note that women are not restricted to wear bathing suits and bikinis while on the beach but should not wear them in other public areas. Boys are even advised to always...

Persian Gulf Destinations Where Less is More!

Persian Gulf Destinations Where Less is More!

Less can be a heck of a lot more when it comes to holiday destinations. You know the feeling. Big country, lots to do and see, wall-to-wall sunshine, great beaches, maxed-out credit card. And the realisation, probably on the flight back home, you actually know next to nothing about the country you’ve spent the last 10 days in. So maybe next time it’s time to think less, to think small, to think Qatar or maybe Bahrain. The Persian Gulf states of Qatar and Bahrain are two of the smallest countries in the world – Qatar comes in at 164 and Bahrain 187 in terms of area. But both punch well above their weight as tourist hotspots. Qatar It shares a border with big-brother Saudi Arabia and is reckoned to be the richest country in the world per head of population.

3 Countries Where Bicycle Rides are Cultural

3 Countries Where Bicycle Rides are Cultural

You may visit some cities or countries and be surprised by the preference of bicycles as a mode of transport. In such cities or countries, the use of bicycles has evolved into a culture by itself. This means that cycling becomes the main mode of transport. This is supported by a well developed cycling infrastructure. The following are some countries that have adopted bicycle culture: 1- The Netherlands Arguably, this is the country that has the most pronounced bicycle culture. This can be seen in the number of bicycles being higher than population of the country. The country is densely populated and terrain is flat meaning the distances covered are minimal. The Dutch therefore prefer to cycle and bicycles have their own lanes governed by strict rules. Accidents are rare and cyclists are well insured thus allowing for a more confident and enjoyable ride. 2- Cambodia Another country whose main mode of transport is by bicycle is Cambodia. This makes it ideal for visitors and locals to visit and experience...

The Fastest Roads In The World

The Fastest Roads In The World

On most roads, we’re used to having to abide by certain speed limits. While cars can go a lot faster, it’s very rare that anyone is legally able to go above 75 MPH down the road. However, this isn’t the case everywhere. In some places, speed limits are either nonexistent, very high, or they simply aren’t enforced at all. Below, Sutliff & Stout, personal injury lawyers in Houston, have provided a list of some of the fastest roads in the world for those that want to unleash their inner speed demon without having to worry about a high speed police chase. 1. Germany’s Autobahn The Autobahn is quite well known for being one of the fastest roads in the world. However, some sections do have an advisory speed limit. This is mainly to cut down on pollution and to factor in traffic. In the places where there is no speed limit, speedsters can race down the long stretch of road to their heart’s content. Drivers with extremely fast cars...

Red Bull Racing F1 Stunt on The Burj Al Arab Helipad

Red Bull Racing F1 Stunt on The Burj Al Arab Helipad

When you just so happen to be the most expensive hotel in Dubai – and one of the most expensive and opulent on the planet – you can pull off some remarkable stunts. Literally. It helps, however, to have a helipad on your roof.That is, of course, the case with the venerable Burj Al Arab hotel in the flagship city of the United Arab Emirates. If Dubai is the gateway to the country, the extraordinary luxury hotel is, in some fashion, the gateway to Dubai. The now-famous silhouette of the architectural marvel was, for many, the prelude to the city’s skyline salvo. Others have come in the Burj Al Arab’s wake of course: the Burj Khalifa, Princess Tower, 23 Marina, Elite Residence, Almas Tower, and so on. But make no mistake: the Burj Al Arab is the bedrock symbol of Dubai’s renaissance.The Pinnacle of Luxury And it is not mere hyperbole to assert that the property is the pinnacle of luxury hospitality. The amenity list is duly impressive: the...
