5 Amazing Things To Try Out On The Far End Of The Palm This Week
It will be worth the drive
Unless you're living on The Palm or anywhere around it (Dubai Marina, JBR etc.), opting for activities there wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea. Especially if we told you you'd have to drive up right to the crescent. Can we hear the moaning already?
But wait...if you do make that effort, there are some pretty fun things to do out there. Here are five that will make your visit worthwhile.
1. A culinary tour of Jumeirah Zabeel Saray
Imagine a meal spread over all the restaurants of this opulent beachfront property. You begin at Plaj with a glass of bubbly and some canapés before moving to Indian restaurant Amala for a cold starter. Then you enjoy Turkish mezze at Lalezar followed by hot mezze at Al Nafoorah. Mains will be served at The Rib Room before you're taken to Imperium for a dessert buffet and lastly to the terrace of Sultan's Lounge for tea or coffee. What more could a foodie ask for?
The tour is priced at AED 1,490 per couple and takes place from 7pm to 11pm. For more info: call 04 453 0444.
