Madinat Jumeirah
Madinat Jumeirah has always been one of my favourite resorts.  It captures some of Dubai’s most picturesque views and that Arabian magic as you walk through the souk full of trinkets. Being a 5-star resort, the souk is different to a traditional souk. You will find various designer boutiques and shops and even a vending machine that dispenses gold bars at the...

There was a communal area with a...
