    My wedding reception was held at Bab Al Yam in Burj Al Arab. The event was organized by Shahid and his team (Swapnil and Farhan) and they truly did a splendid job of providing the best customer service possible.

    The food menu, crafted by Mr. Giovanni and his team gave our guests some mouth watering experiences.

    Our reception was dreamy, and it would have not been possible with out them!

    If I could only give one advice, I would say go early if you can! The park opens at 10am. We were there early so there wasn’t any queue for all the activities! It started to get very crowded after 1pm and looked chaotic. We were glad we came early :)
    The coldness is manageable, no need for long johns underneath. Just a sweater or hoodie underneath the thermal wear provided will be ok. I think because there’s no wind so you don’t feel that cold. This is coming from a family who had never live in a temperate country.
    The chairlift takes you to the top of the slope (exciting!) and brings you back down if you don’t ski . It’s just surreal that outside the slope structure is 40C and inside is -4C!
    My boys took the discovery lesson and they enjoyed it. Only the two of them to one instructor in their time slot, so they were able to ski down the gentle slope many times!
    The online booking system only allows those 12 & under to be in the children learning group. The on-site staff allowed my 14yo to be in the children group. The adult group had more people so not as fun. So booking onsite allows more flexibility and I think having a friendly rep also helps :)

    Good collection of various fishes and sea creatures. The scale of the aquarium is so small that you can cover it in an hour. Ambience is good but not worth the money. It’s too expensive for the offering.

    The Souk Madunat Jumeirah mall has a very unique old style building, very pretty shops line up nicely. Very instagrammable, also have couple of nice restaurants and coffee shop. My favorite always the Belgium cafe with it’s signature dishes and Hoegarden Rosee. They also have rivwr tour by boat, just like Venice in Middle East! The Burj Al Arab handsomely standing tall as the background of pictures and boat man is very helpful to take our pictures and areange the pose. Very noce experience.

    • Pretty cool spot in Dubai, with a different restaurant occupying every floor of Pier 7 - meaning there is something for everyone!

    • We went to the Scene for dinner/drinks one night, and then Cargo one day for drinks (decent happy hour options!)

    • Worth a visit for sure if you are in Dubai and around the marina area

    • Recommend requesting or trying to get a table outside on the balcony area, as the marina views are a dream setting

    We prefer this mall above Dubai mall as it is less crowded and more easily to park your car. We were here in june 2022 and we did notice it is low season but the mall was very quiet, even on weekends.

    We visited the Imagine show twice and that always stays wonderful, but we were missing the lasershow onto the IC Hotel, as they would use to do. Also all the market stalls were closed and that was a pitty.

    Did notice that not all shops have survived the pandemic as the large sportstore was missing in the corner next to Centerpoint as well as the Old Navy store was missing in the mall.

    Hope they will get the activities running here again next time we come around, as it needs a good vibe to attract more people.

    It was a hot day and it was immediately cool and comfortable as we went in - how perfect! It was an eye-opening experience interacting with various species of birds at close distance. Other varieties of tropical creatures are also impressive. Learnt a lot!

    That's one mall in Dubai with technically no floors. It's one massive spread of stores and outlets divided into beautiful country courts.

    We signed up for the tour at 10:30am. Positive experience learning from the presenter on the basics of Islam with Q&A. The mosque/site itself is not that special, not much for good photo-taking, though.

    Nice mall right on the Marina, with several happening stores and restaurants. A smallish food court though with barely 7-8 options, though can enjoy the view with the seating area overlooking the marina. Avoid the overpriced food stalls on the marina walk right outside the mall!
