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.
