Hello from Dubai, peeps! Without going too much into detail (because I’m really tired, hehe) I just thought I was gonna share some pictures of our first two days in the beyond cool Dubai. After some drama with the hotel we had originally booked that decided to give our room to somebody else even though we had already paid and informed them about our late arrival (and they sent us to another so called “hotel” that was literally the most disgusting place I’ve ever seen with bugs on the floor, stains all over the sheets and really fishy staff who at first refused to return our passports) we finally found Centro Barsha thanks to my Dad who called and arranged for us to stay in one of their suites. So basically, we’ve been really exhausted therefore spending our first time at the pool and also visiting the beyond beautiful Madinat Jumeirah that I can really recommend. The place is built up in ancient Arabic style with a beautiful canal where you can go on a little boat tour with very friendly guides. Certainly something I can recommend as it offers a beautiful view over Burj al Arab, the world’s only 7* hotel, in addition to the gorgeous buildings of the area. Gonna sleep now so will talk to you again later, hihi! Cheers!

  1. That hotel sounded disgusting… glad you didn’t have to stay there! Which hotel was it? Your photos are beautiful as always. Madinat Jumeirah looks amazing. I will go there too on my trip! ;)

    • Thank you, Kaja! You really should swing by Madinat Jumeirah! It’s one of my favorite spots in Dubai for sure! :) We were supposed to stay at Pearl City Suites and the gross hotel owned by their friends that they sent us to was called like Hayez Apartments or something! :) x

    • Thank you so so much, Elsa! :) You are just the sweetest! :) x <3

  2. Beautiful pictures- i’ve never been to an arab country but it’s on my list! The style is so special!

    • Thank you, Andrea! I can really recommend you to visit! One of the most unique places I’ve been to and safer than most countries/emirates in the MENA region. :) x

  3. Älskar Dubai och dina solglasögon! Från Chloe eller? Madinat Jumeirah är en favoritplats! <3

  4. Die Bilder sind einfach wunderschön. Wenn es für mich im Januar nach Dubai geht muss ich unbedingt auch in Medinat .

    • Thank you, dear! Yes, I really really wanna go back to Bali as soon as a can! It’s one of my favorite places on earth!! <3 x

    • Yes, I think they were crooks actually and probably had rooms but sent us to a cheaper one so that they could keep part of the money themselves! -.- Really disgusting behaviour!
      Thank you very much! :) x <3

  7. Usch vad äckligt hotellet lät! Du borde verkligen skirva och kräva pengarna tillbaka!!!
