Qesm Siwah, Matrouh Governorate, Egypt
The day had been spent speeding (and tumbling in my case) down enormous sand dunes on questionable snowboards, a pastime that filled one's head with sand and spirit with unending exhilaration. We had swum in hot springs and very cold springs,...

The term 'High Tea' takes on a whole new meaning at At.mosphere, a restaurant & lounge on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa (currently the tallest building in the world). The views are incredible, as you might imagine. Sip slowly and take it all...

1 Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Blvd - Dubai - United Arab Emirates

Two architectural wonders helped put Dubai on the map: the Burj Al Arab hotel, which resembles the sail of a ship out on the gulf waters, and the Palm Jumeirah, a residential development on a manmade archipelago that fans out in the...

Financial Center Rd - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
You may have already seen photos of Dubai Mall on social media, but to visit is more of an experience than just a trip to a mall. While the mall has a lot to offer avid shoppers, other visitors may instead choose...

Dubai Mall Doha St Dubai - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
When my visitors to Dubai turned out not to be the shopping types but felt they had to take something home for family and friends, I would send them to one of the branches of Al Jaber Gallery. Predictably, they'd return to my apartment laden with...

On my layover in Dubai, I walked out of the airport and to the first taxi driver that approached me, I said, "I want to see the tallest building in the world. And go shopping." He said, "Don't worry. I'll take you to both." Best layover ever.

The Dubai Mall, 2nd Floor, Next to The Water Fall & The Dubai Fountain - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
