Marieke, your Destination Expert

After four years spent in South Korea between 2013 and 2017, I am moving back to the land of the morning calm with my family starting in January 2020. Living between Seoul and Geoje island off the coast of Busan, it would be my pleasure to share with you my tips to take advantage of the wide range of experiences that Korea has to offer: hikes in the Seoraksan park, shopping in the trendiest districts of Seoul, silent retreat in a buddhist temple, downhill skiing in one of the dozen of ski resort of the country, discovery of local food, strolls in local markets, etc. Whether you prefer cities or the countryside, sport or relaxation, whether you are traveling alone or with your family, Korea is a very safe country that is still off the major tourist paths and that will surely fit your expectations.

Anaïs, your Destination Expert

After many trips and expatriations including Australia, Canada, Mexico and Thailand, it is in Cuba that I landed 3 years ago and I fell in love with.

Cuba is one of the few countries where you still feel out of time and completely disconnected (in every meaning!). It is a destination that offers a total change of scenery with the rest of the world and offers an amazing authenticity and contrast through local encounters, colonial architecture and landscapes. It is a country rich in history, which offers a fascinating cultural and religious mix.

Cuba goes beyond American cars, cigars, paradisiacal beaches and a sunny weather 🙂 I would be delighted to share with you the different facets still unknown of this Caribbean heart, full of color and joie de vivre !

Phoebe, your Destination Expert

After four years of expatriation in Jakarta – Indonesia, I now live in Hanoi with my family.
This first experience abroad gave me the love of traveling and the desire to discover Southeast Asia more.
Hanoi is a city with crazy charm: a mix between small streets, street-food restaurants, pagodas, the vibrant «Old Quarter» and elegant wide Haussmanian avenues lined with trees and Belle Époque villas as well as its Opera built on the model of the Garnier Palace, its St-Joseph Cathedral and the Hoan Kiem lake.
The capital of Vietnam is a promise of a unique stay, combining tradition, culture, colonial heritage, exoticism and modernity.
The choice of things to do in the rest of the country is vast. Why not spend a night in Halong Bay, go trekking in the north through the mountains of Sapa, visit the Imperial City in Hué, stroll through the alleys of Hoi An, discover the Mekong Delta or simply lay back at the beach!
It is also a paradise for food lovers with its incredible gastronomy, a cuisine full of freshness that will undoubtedly be one of the daily highlights of your trip!
Vietnam is a beautiful and authentic country and I would be happy to help you organize your stay!

Phoebe speaks French, English and a little Bahasa (Indonesian)

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.
