Trips to Dubai: Top Travel Tips

Travelling to Dubai is unlike visits to other popular tourist destinations and there’s more that you need to be aware off before embarking on your trip. While it’s an Islamic state, it’s considerably liberal in comparison to its neighbours, but that doesn’t mean there’s things you shouldn’t avoid in order to maintain the respect the city deserves. People of all ages consider a break in Dubai nowadays – it’s come a long way since its fishing village roots and if you book flights to Dubai with Trailfinders, you can see for yourself just how special it is.

The volume of advice you need to listen to will vary, depending on who you’re travelling with and how “vulnerable” you may be. If you’re visiting the city with children or women, for example, there are more aspects that need to be considered to ensure that your visit is as pleasurable as possible.

Before you go, a few vaccinations need to be organised. While you may already be vaccinated against the common diseases (e.g. MMR and Hepatitis), you will also need to protect yourself against typhoid while anti-diarrhoeal medicine could come in handy.

While Dubai may be considered as an upmarket, business city, families with children are more than welcome across the board. In fact, many of the attractions cater perfectly for them so that you can enjoy a break as a family. Amusements, play areas and babysitting services are all available while the swimming pools are out of this world.

Women are advised not to travel alone – like many places around the world, unwanted attention is likely to increase if you’re a solo traveller. That being said, Dubai is incredibly safe and the liberal views cement this.

Despite it being an Islamic state, Dubai provides a modern environment – both in surroundings and attitude. The flawless fusion of natural beauty and forward thinking ensure that Dubai is well and truly on the tourism map and will be for many years to come.

Wellnesia - Discounts on 400+ beauty & spa treatments in and around Dubai

New in Dubai! Wellnesia is shaking the deal market with discounts on over 400 treatments at top salons and spas. Wellnesia is a new beauty & wellness website providing customers access to more than 400 discounted beauty, spa and lifestyle treatments at top venues in and around Dubai. Through Wellnesia.com, customers can find and book - free of charge - any beauty or spa treatment they fancy at a very attractive price. 


Three key aspects differentiate Wellnesia from regular daily deal websites. The first is offering customers to choose and book exactly the treatment they need on the basis of location, discounted price and availability rather than on the basis that “I think this deal might come in handy in the future”. The second is the amazing quality of salon and spa partners that are part of Wellnesia’s fast-growing network. Finally, you don’t need to wait until the end of the day to confirm a deal; book appointments instantly or on a short notice avoiding the frustration of the venue being booked up for weeks on end. 

Wellnesia provides great value to salon and spa partners as well offering a flexible and easy to use online system enabling them to sell unfilled timeslots at a discount before they expire. Occupancy increases during off-peak times and spas are able to build a loyal base of customers who are flexible with time and who prefer to spend less on treatments. 

“Our vision is to revolutionize the way salons and spas manage their unfilled inventory and the way beauty enthusiasts access the most attractive and relevant promotions possible, “said Mustapha Abdennour, Wellnesia’s Co-founder and CEO. “Only Wellnesia provides discounts on any treatment at top beauty salons and spas in Dubai and with booking transparency. This unique model is expected to help salon and spa operators grow occupancy at historically quieter times as well as build a loyal clientèle ” He also stated that the site is offering customers reward points that they can use towards their subsequent appointments.

Summer Breaks - Summer means fun, and the best kind of fun is with Jumeirah

As many of the readers to this blog know, we love Madinat Jumeirah – it has air of sophistication to it, but without compromising the Arabian feel that we like. We remember when it first opened – and while many other hotels have opened subsequently, Madinat has managed to stand its ground as one of the premier hotels to stay at. It actually comprises of three distinctive properties: Madinat Jumeirah, Al Qasr and Mina A’Salam. They are all linked into one uber resort with private waterways. This is one of the only real resorts that exist in Dubai, as you have everything at hand.

One of the great things about Madinat Jumeirah is that you get complimentary access to lots of different things including Wild Wadi. That’s why it’s a perfect retreat for families who live outside of Dubai, but it’s also great if you live in Dubai.

Many families leave the UAE for at least part of the Summer, but Madinat allows you to have a staycation of sorts before you leave. You can also get a great deal if you book now as Jumeirah is offering a steal of deal – at 10% off the current best rate.

We recommend at least a long weekend with the family. There’s a great choice of restaurants, the kids club is great – and the buffet breakfast is worth the rate of stay alone!  If you are able to stay here, then it is definitely worth the money. The rooms are great - the resort is amazing, and you don’t even have to leave the resort. But it’s also close to places like Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa if you want to throw that into your visit. Madinat Jumeirah is also well located so you can grab a taxi and in 5 minutes you can be at the mall or 10 minutes to Bastakiya. We love this place, whether we are staying or visiting.  And if you can – try and get a meal at Pierchic – it’s got amazing seafood.

Baku is the new Dubai

There have always been pretenders, but when they have money, anything can happen. And Baku is only 3 hours from Dubai. Hello Azerbaijan:

Ibrahimov went straight to his architects and said, “Draw this exactly the way I did.” Avesta Concern, the company that governs his various business interests, subsequently commissioned the blueprints for Ibrahimov’s vision. The result will be a sprawling, lobster-shaped development called Khazar Islands — an archipelago of 55 artificial islands in the Caspian Sea with thousands of apartments, at least eight hotels, a Formula One racetrack, a yacht club, an airport and the tallest building on earth, Azerbaijan Tower, which will rise 3,445 feet.

Azerbaijan Is Rich. Now It Wants to Be Famous.
