New Year’s Eve 2018, Downtown Dubai

Celebrating New Year’s Eve in Dubai has been in mu bucket list for some time, so I was very happy to experience this. Somehow, as 2018 is celebrated as The Year of Zayed, the Father of UAE. In 2018 it is 100 years since the birth of the Sheikh Zayed, and to honor him the NYE 2018 was celebrated in a different way with only LED light show instead of the well known fireworks.

New Year’s Eve 2018 – Karma Kafé, Dubai

The 6th day  and New Year’s Eve was celebrated Downtown Dubai. I did some research about several events before we left for Dubai, and I then found out that Karma Kafé offered a NYE menu, that I booked approx. 1 month before, as they had some early bird prices as well.

Karma Kafé is a Pan-Asia restaurant, placed on the 3rd floor in Souk Al Bahar, with a balcony view of Burj Khalifa and the Fountains.

Bombay Urban Cafe, Dubai

After the helicopter tour and visiting the Dubai Frame, where we went for a very big walk, my friend was so exhausted, and only wanted to take some rest – actually sleep, and I was bored AF as I wanted to go for shopping on my own. Dubai is one of the safest places in the world, you can go wherever you want on your own. As we’d already been to Dubai Mall several times, I decided to go to the Mall of the Emirates for some shopping. The Mall of the Emirates has more than 560 shops, more than 90 dining options, 5 star hotels and world’s biggest indoor ski – what an incredible view it has!

The Mall of the Emirates is located near our hotel in Al Barsha, but I went there with a taxi, as I was not sure about walking. Going there with taxi still took about 8-10 minutes.

After the shopping I went for dinner at an indian restaurant nearby our hotel – Bombay Urban Cafe. Continue reading “Bombay Urban Cafe, Dubai”
