The view from the Bvlgari Resort & Residences Dubai

Dubai is the largest city of the United Arab Emirates(UAE) with more than 9 millions of inhabitants. Abu Dhabi city is the capital of the UAE. I visited the country the first time in 1998. Thecity has grown constantly and has changed a lot. Since around 1833, Dubai has been a trading port. Today the economy relies on trade, tourism, aviation, real estate and growing financial services.

The Year of Tolerance – H. H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed declared 2019 as the Year of Tolerance. The announcement aims to highlight the UAE as a global capital for tolerance and its approach, since its establishment, to be a bridge of communication between peoples of different cultures in a respectful environment that rejects extremism and emphasises on the acceptance of the other.

Dining in Dubai

We recommend the Lebanese Restaurant Babel for seafood and mezze at La Mer by Meraason the beachside area in Jumeirah 1. Beside the one in Dubaithey have three branches in Lebanonas well as one in Kuwait. The Restaurant is laid out over two levels and it has a spacious terrace. Great ambience, yummy food and very friendly staff. They have a large seafood bar and also an indoor dining area. We were on the balcony seating upstairs and had some mezze dishes such as shrimps Beiruty and cheese rolls. We also were served complimentary fruits and sweets!
