Abandoned Battle Scenes and Pretty Beachfronts

My visit to Dubai for the new year was so much fun. While I'm always visiting Dubai, it was a lot of fun this time because I explored a few new places that were so unique and visually striking. Here are a few photos from the places I visited and some info on them.

A Post-Apocalyptic World

Last Exit, Jebel Ali North was highly entertaining with its post-apocalyptic setting, complete with monster trucks, abandoned cars, and chills-running-down-your-spine eerie feels.

I love the finesse that went into making the place look and feel like a post-war wasteland. All the way from the weaponized cars to even the bathrooms. So much detail! I half-expected to find zombies walking around. I loved how all the food trucks were also war trucks. And of course, there was some great food, too. 

It was just so much fun walking all over and marvelling at the scenes and things. Even though I was there for a couple of hours, I feel like I still didn't see everything. And there are so many other Last Exits with different themes that I want to check out! 

A Rustic and Colourful Beachfront

La Mer, the beachfront in Jumeirah, was beautiful with gorgeous colours of the sea, colourful and fun street art everywhere, the unique architecture of cafes and restaurants, rustic lights and just the lively atmosphere as people milled around. My friend and I sat in Murjan Cafe and enjoyed watching the sky with its changing colours as the sun set, and a Lotus and Kunafa Caramel Cheesecake that I think may just be the best cheesecake I've ever had. 

I also visited a Japanese cafe and bakery in Ibn Battuta Mall, which had beautifully presented cuisine and amazing Ramen noodles made fresh in-house. 

Since my visit was very short, {only 4 days}, I think I packed a lot into it by at least visiting two new places, as opposed to spending my entire time reading in the hotel room. Great food, amazing weather and stunning skies made this short trip a memorable one.

What are some of your favourite places to visit in Dubai? What places are unmissable when it comes to eating out in Dubai?

Until next time
