A QUICK BEACH BREAK IN DUBAI

Last week I’d had enough. As much as I love the UK, it’s getting cold and quintessentially grey. Although it’s my favourite time of year, (just as far as Christmas) I decided I was lacking some serious vitamin D. So, I jumped on a plane to the UAE and went to visit my good friend who’s just moved to Dubai. It was a whirlwind trip of just 4 days but we crammed in as much sun, sea and sight-seeing as we could.

Here’s what we learnt about Dubai

  • Everything’s shiny and new
  • Everyone has a super-car (make sure you feign interest!)
  • You don’t do anything yourself; park your car, move your sun lounger or pump gas
  • Expect a LOT of junk food
  • Don’t hold hands or even touch the opposite sex in public (in case a local is around)
  • If you want to go to a nice beach, prepare to pay around £30 pp for the day
  • Only hotels will serve you alcohol
  • DO NOT be seen to be drunk in public, or at all for that matter
  • Everyone drives really fast and recklessly
  • You can’t get bacon anything, anywhere. not even Frazzles!
