Jenny Leigh Methven's Deserts
Collected by Jenny Leigh Methven
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,...
Al Sufouh Rd - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
If after all this shopping, eating, and sight seeing, you think you deserve some pampering—we agree! At the One&Only Royal Mirage all you have to do is sit back (or lie down), relax, and let the therapists take charge. There are twelve treatment...
122nd Floor, Burj Khalifa, Downtown Dubai - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
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...
Dubai - United Arab Emirates
Everything is bigger in Dubai, and this aquarium is no exception to that rule. With offerings like glass bottom boat tours, cage snorkeling, and shark diving, it's perhaps among the most interactive aquarium's out there as well! Still, if you'd...

Al Murooj Complex, Opp. Dubai Mall - DIFC - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
Growing in popularity, MORE Cafe has opened several locations in Dubai but while they've expanded, they've managed to keep a sense of community. In addition to their carefully crafted coffee they offer cooking classes and display the work of local...
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...
The Dubai Mall, 2nd Floor, Next to The Water Fall & The Dubai Fountain - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
Save yourself from mall ennui at Dubai Mall, skip the food courts and enjoy the incredibly well-made Lebanese fare at Al Hallab. My top picks: hummus, baba ghanouj, makanek (baby sausages drizzled with pomegranate sauce), hindbeh (chicory greens),...
المدينة القديمة، داونتاون دبي - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
Serving the best of beautifully prepared British cuisine, the Rivington Bar & Grill, located in Souk al Bahar, overlooking Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall, is one of my favourite spots for a mid-shopping lunch or post-spree drink to assess the damage...
