A Dubai Guide

Updated: Aug 7, 2019

Top 10 locations to visit when travelling to Dubai, from clubs to mosques.

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi, UAE

When travelling to #Dubai, you need to know.... It's the extra-est city in the world, no, in the universe. Everything here is the biggest, shiniest and tallest. Apart from their super bougie vibes, Dubai has a fabulous culture, delicious food (best falafel I’ve ever had), the most courteous people and breathtaking architecture. If you are a young soul looking for a good time and dine, I'M READY to show you the coolest places I visited here.


1. Siddharta Lounge by Buddha Bar

The coolest (bougiest) rooftop I went to! Sick beats sponsored by house DJs, a 360 degree view of the marina, electric blue ambience, cold drinks and yummy appetizers.



2. Old Souk

A traditional market in Dubai full of spices, souvenirs and GOLD. Have you ever watched Sex and the City 2, where Carrie bought those cute Ali Baba shoes? Well pretty much that! I dare you to take one of those little boats back to the (modern) city.



3. Dubai Fountain/ Burj Khalifa/ Dubai Mall

Here's where it gets super extra...big. This mall area is tourist central. You'll see the world's largest choreographed fountain on one side, next to it the tallest building in the world, and on the other side the world's largest shopping mall.





4. White

"The ultimate chic playground for upscale party-goers" -White Dubai. I couldn't describe it any better. Imagine the sickest, fanciest looking club in the middle of nowhere, on top of a hill with a complete view of the Dubai skyline. F*cking legendary.




5. Arabian Desert

A MAJOR life #highlight, tbh. I had the chance of taking a safari experience where we did some dune bashing, camel riding, and delicious falafel eating at a bedouin campsite in the middle of the desert. All day baby! P.S. the sunset in the Arabian desert is just wow.





6. Jumeirah Beach

A gorgeous white sand beach with an amazing view of the Burj Al Arab. Super fun when you go with a group of ten uni students. There's a yummy burger shack around, for all you #foodies out there.




7. Chival Global Social at the City Walk Mall

My favourite restaurant in Dubai. So luxurious and aesthetically pleasing. This place was featured in Harper's Bazaar Arabia as #ChicEats. I had the most delicious Tuna Tataki and Cucumber Salad.


8. Abu Dhabi

This city is the capital of the UAE, so if you're visiting Dubai take a day to go, it's an hour away! Visit the Louvre Abu Dhabi, you won't regret getting some culture during your trip. Master pieces from all around the world, by artists like Van Gogh, Picasso, Piet Mondrian, Ai Weiwei and Leonardo da Vinci. You must also visit the Sheikh Zayed Mosque. A peaceful sanctuary featuring gorgeous architecture with a trillion dollar decor.






9. Barasti Beach Bar

A world famous beach bar and the best day club in Dubai, apparently. Women don't pay to get in and they also get free frosés (frozen rosé wine slushies). Their pizza, calamari, and caesar salad are to die for! Beachside DJ and pool, heaven am I right?



10. Friends Avenue Cafe

"A blend of Australian, English and European favourites" -Friends Avenue Cafe. An amazing brunch location with beautiful looking meals. Try the tricolour eggs benedict. Nom nom.


Safe travels and good luck cuties!


Extra foodie location: Zaatar w Zeit = BEST FALAFEL EVER!
