Looks like the burger mania in Kuwait is now hitting Dubai too because I see many burger joints opening everywhere, I spotted Elevation Burger opening at Sheikh Zayed road, my friends from Emirates are so happy because Elevation Burger to Emirates is what Tim Hortons to Kuwait. Guess the burger mania will also make U.A.E join the top fattest countries list like Kuwait.
Myself and friends were planning to celebrate the new year’s eve in Dubai, it’s been years since I ever traveled anywhere for the new year’s eve and all I did was either gather with friends or simply stay home and watch other countries celebrations on TV. I checked booking.com and hotel prices were unbelievably high! The hotel that charged KD80 for the single room are now charging over KD150 and even higher.
So we have made changes to our plan and we traveled this weekend, so my question what’s new in Dubai? restaurants? places? entertainment?
A friend of mine shared photos for luxurious European cruise “Silver Wind” docked on Shuwaikh port, the ship came all the way from Italy and carries over 600 tourists from Europe and America who will be taken on a tour to see Kuwait attractions, cool. I always wonder why we don’t yet have a touristic port and cruise in Kuwait? This can be a great attraction for Kuwait, tourists can reach Kuwait through the sea, also we can go to Dubai and other cities by the sea and not just air.
Great news, I read on the paper that Kuwait and other GCC countries are now negotiating with the U.K government for Visa-free entry to the U.K or by obtaining express visa upon the arrival to the airport, bingo. I mean this can really make travelling to the U.K a lot easier and more comfortable, having to re-new your visa every a few months can be a headache sometimes especially when you are on short notice and need to get the visa quickly, also visa has become more costly in recent years.
However, I’m not yet sure when they will start the new system but probably during first quarter of 2013?
Have you ever been to Malta? Personally I never thought about visiting Malta until I saw this reportage for Kuwaiti photographer Talal Al Buhairi on his visit to Malta. I was surprised to know that 57% of the Maltese language is actually Arabic, that’s new to me.
The video is about 15 minutes long, but it’s great to see if you are considering to ever visit Malta. I’m now thinking to visit Malta, any of you been there before?
