Violaine, votre Correspondante

Le Dubai “Bling Bling” ou le Dubai insolite et authentique ? Les deux styles cohabitent et me fascinent. L’architecture ultra moderne de Dubai avec ses gratte-ciels et ses îles artificielles caractérisent la ville de la “démesure”. A l’opposé, le Bur Dubai – “La vieille ville”- a tout pour vous charmer avec ses quartiers aux maisons typiques du Moyen Orient traditionnel. Quel contraste ! Je ne m’en lasse pas !

De son côté, Oman – considéré comme La Perle d’Arabie – a tout pour vous surprendre. Oman regorge de richesses culturelles, d’une histoire passionnante et de paysages à couper le souffle. Le dépaysement est assuré, que ce soit en parcourant les fjords bleus de Musandam, les villes blanches le long de la côte, les oueds et massifs montagneux, les dunes de sables rouge et doré dans l’arrière-pays, les palmeraies verdoyantes, sans oublier les wadis où il fait bon de se rafraichir…

Je suis belge francophone, une maman comblée avec 3 enfants et j’habite à Dubai depuis 5 ans – et tous les jours cette mégalopole me fascine. Abu Dhabi, un peu le berceau de la civilisation émirati se trouve à 1h de Dubai et je m’y rends très régulièrement. Je passe aussi beaucoup de temps à Oman : j’ai une passion pour ce Sultanat et toutes ses beautés. Je serais ravie de partager mes coups de cœurs et petites adresses pour que votre voyage dans la région soit magique !

Il y a tout à fait moyen de combiner un itinéraire avec Cmycities Dubaï-Abu Dhabi et Cmycities Oman pour vous concocter un itinéraire sur mesure car nous travaillons en collaboration.

Violaine parle français et anglais.

Violaine, your Destination Expert

There are two faces to Dubai, the “over the top”, extravagant, state-of-the-art architecture with its modern sky-scrapers, shopping malls and artificial islands of The World and the more charming and authentic side with its traditional housings, souks where you think you’d stepped into a different era and thats the best part!
I live in the modern Dubai but enjoy taking a stroll in the old Dubai, by the Creek to watch all the abras (wooden fishing boats) speeding across the Creek to reach Deira and its hidden treasures of the past.

I am Belgian and a happy mother of 3 children. I have lived in the region for almost 5 years, where I totally feel at home. As your destination expert across the region, I am not only fascinated by Dubai and its neighbouring Emirates, of which Abu Dhabi and others, but I am also passionate about Oman, the country next door, only 4 hours away from Dubai.
Abu Dhabi is also definitely worth the trip. It’s an hour’s drive from Dubai and hosts all the cultural events and museums – such as the Louvre Abu Dhabi – and is also considered as the cradle of the Emirati civilisation.

Oman is the pearl of Arabia! Oman is as surprising as unfamiliar. It’s magic – as you travel and explore the wonders of its landscape – formed by deserts, mountains, oasis and virgin beaches with pristine blue waters, you will realize why this country is known as the pearl of Arabia. It simply has so much to offer and one thing that really stands out is the kindness and closeness of its people and the authenticity of their culture.

So why not make a round trip Dubai – Abu Dhabi (and /or other Emirates) – Oman? I can guide you through the region and make your experience a fantastic one!

And don’t forget that you can also ask to have an itinerary planned with both Cmycities Oman and Cmycities Dubai – Abu Dhabi as we do collaborate to offer you services across both locations.

Violaine speaks English and French.

Client Testimonials

Claire from London

November 2017

« As someone who had never been to Paris before, faced with the possibility of one weekend away and so much to do and see in such a small amount of time, I had no idea of where to start. Cmycities were a fantastic help in easing much of that pressure. Larissa was able to make many excellent suggestions based on location and her experience of the local amenities. She even booked our meals at various restaurants to help ease the pressure further. My family and I had a truly fantastic time. Paris is a beautiful city and I was able to experience that to its fullest as a result of the knowledge and service offered by Cmycities. Many thanks Larissa. Until the next time. »

Susan from Nuneaton

October 2017

« I used Cmycities to help me organize a weekend for four people to celebrate a friend’s 50th birthday, and she had never been to Paris. Cmycities was with me every step of the way over months of planning. Everyone had a great time and had nothing but praise for the hotel, location we stayed in, hand-picked restaurants, and the sight-seeing activities chosen. My friend has now fallen in love with Paris and we all want to go back to the beautiful city of light. »

Marie from Cape Town

October 2017

« Going to Dubai with Cmycities was a great experience! When exposing some of my second thoughts regarding the destination (I was 6 months pregnant then) on our initial call, Renda gave me so much valuable insight she convinced me it was a good idea. She gave me some tips on how to have an amazing experience in the desert, and how to get out of the city to discover Oman. This trip would not have been the same without her! She really took good care of us and shared her best addresses for spa, shopping and restaurants… A real point of view as a local, was crucial. She gave me the opportunity to ask her a lot of questions about culture too, and not as boring or commercial as it could have been if I had organized this short vacation with a travel agent. And I made a new friend! »
