I love Dubai's Souk Madinat Jumeirah

We stayed in Dubai for only three days. But with that short span of time, I can safely say I love Dubai! And I especially love Souk Madinat Jumeirah.

We were brought there by my high school classmates who are based in Dubai. I have no idea what Souk Madinat was. We were just following their lead.

I was absolutely pleased they brought us there. I just love the vibe of the place. Souk Madinat Jumeirah is a combination of a lot of things. It's one of those lifestyle places you'd want to visit and hang out all day long. There's the traditional Arabian souk, modern restaurants, souvenirs, cafes, and bars.

I am just sad that we were not able to stay for a long time as we were slated to visit another place that day. I promised myself, we will visit Dubai again. But my husband said he'd rather go to Turkey. Well, he can have his cheap turkey holiday while I go have my Dubai love affair. Haha. Just kidding!

My very hospitable classmates who are based in UAE. Thanks Cathy, AN, Gang, Elvie and Hadz (not in pic). You really made our stay fun and memorable.

Our Dubai trip was really a whirlwind trip. If I can rewind time, I would like to stay in Dubai for a minimum of one week. We weren't even able to go up Burj Khalifa because we woke up late. But that's for another story.
