The first time we went to the Madinat , the playground of the rich, we went by taxi for dinner, spoilt by our son and his wife who lived there. We took a ride on a gondola type boat in this man made Venice where there are most big franchise bar restaurants. This whole resort is a very expensive...

Dubai Marina is the place to party on land, sea or in the air! Skydivers have made base jumps off from the top of the Princess Tower which is the second tallest building in Dubai, standing at 414 m (1,358 ft).

Jean takes you from the Metro, through the Marina to the full on action Jumeirah Beach, where just about every mad and expensive toy and plaything is available. Power jets that have you flying up out of the sea, camel riding, parasailing behind an expensive boat, zip lines, discos, everything imaginable that money can buy is on the beach....

First a warning the Dubai Creek Metro stop does not take you to the area of the creek you might expect, as you will see from the film. The Gold Souk and Spice Souk are one side of the creek and the Old Souk and Heritage Village are on the other side nearer to the cruise terminal. Heritage Village and...

Here is a Dubai film you won't see often. We start in Karama, go to eat street side at Ravi's that watch Carlos Santana in the Park. You can spend on premium goods at the expensive Mall, but there is a down-downtown not too far away, where you can find, and we are quoting the claim made by many...

8.4 Billion dollars expanding the Suez a few years ago is having positive effect.

Aqaba, the gateway to Petra, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea and so much more. I did not travel to Aqaba when some of the others were shooting a movie there, so I missed Petra and had to endure hearing about it over and over again. It was on my Bucket list and I did get to go there many years...

My desire to see Southern Indai, having done a fair bit of the north, the Taj mahal etc, was from a TV cookery series set here. So, cookery and food was key. The Marari Beach Hotel holds a cookery demonstration / lesson daily around cocktail time. Just after the Tea Wallah has been on the grass and just before...
