Dubai: Jumeirah Beach and Souk Madinat

First stop in Dubai: Jumeirah. 

Jumeirah beach is perfect for surfing and paddle boarding. By 10 minute walk, you can rent surfboards and paddle boards as well as buy other surfing merchandise. It is also the best location to take a good photo of Burj Al Arab, one of Dubai’s famous landmarks and most voted as world’s luxurious hotel.




Well, water sports are not for me, so I was all happy posing and taking photos by the beach. Lol!!!

Souk Madinat Jumeirah is a combination of classy and ancient marketplace for shopping, dining and other sorts of entertainment. Best time to go there would be early morning, just when shops are about to open, to get a better view and avoid the typical time where most tourists crowd in.




You can get the Aladdin’s ‘Arabian niiight ~ ‘ vibe (if you know what I mean) all throughout the area. Lots of items perfect for souvenirs (some are gold plated) are sold by shops in which you can haggle and get discounts (on some), and restaurants of different cuisines and cafes to choose from.

Went there last January and its giant Christmas tree display was still there at the center.

Clear emerald green water surrounding the whole place in which you can take a tour by riding an Abra, a boat ride which is Dubai’s popular mode of transportation.

Souk Madinat is simply breathtaking! Added bonus was the overview of Burj Al Arab blending through the Souk’s structure. I was actually amazed that this place exists! Dubai having lots of amusement parks and other thrilling adventures makes this the best choice to chill and shop at the end of your itinerary.

Special shoutout to my sister who was with me all throughout my trip! ♡
