Only in Dubai...
Al Qudra Lake
"Dubai is a desert city, but it’s easy to forget that when you’re surrounded by skyscrapers. I’ve always found the desert to be an amazing escape. It’s soothing, wild and full of life. I’ve spent a lot of time photographing kingfishers at Al Qudra Lake, and that’s somewhere I frequently find myself recommending."
"To me, restaurants are only partly about the food. Every element, from the location to the attentiveness of the waiting staff, plays a crucial role in the experience. The Farm, which not only serves exquisite Thai food but is perhaps the most picturesque spot in all of Dubai, ticks every box."
Antica Trattoria della Pesa
"Alserkal Avenue, undoubtedly Dubai’s artistic nerve centre, is an incredible spot. Dedicated to pushing the development of homegrown initiatives, cultural productions and events, it’s a place that just doesn’t sit still. There’s always a new exhibit, show or pop-up gallery to fall in love with."
