DUBAI: CELEBRATING NEW YEAR ALL YEAR ROUND (8)

After everything you have seen, heard and experienced, you try to sum up your impressions. A day to rest a bit, without touring around the city. And I have promised myself to try and have that machiato at the balcony, in a cafe on the promenade, outside, with newspapers in my hands – regardless to … Continue reading DUBAI: CELEBRATING NEW YEAR ALL YEAR ROUND (8)

DUBAI: GRAD U KOME JE STALNO NOVA GODINA (8)

Nakon svega što ste videli, čuli i iskusili, poslednjeg dana pokušate da sredite utiske – danas nema obilazaka i jurnjave. I zainatili ste se da popijete tu kafu na šetalištu, u bašti uz novine, pa makar skapali od vrućine. Doduše, inteligentno ste došli u osam ujutru, dok se još vlaga nije sasvim podigla. Jedan jedini … Continue reading DUBAI: GRAD U KOME JE STALNO NOVA GODINA (8)

Glimpses of Dubai (8) – FOR EUROPEANS ONLY

Friday night, taxi cars going in all directions, busy streets, crowded entrances to big hotels. We were going out for a drink, and to my surprise – we were headed to one of the hotels. Popular pubs are to be found there, my friends explained, even though somewhat “hidden”. A lot of people were coming … Continue reading Glimpses of Dubai (8) – FOR EUROPEANS ONLY

Crtice iz Dubaija (8) – SAMO ZA EVROPLJANE

Petak uveče, taksi vozila na sve strane, pune ulice, gužva na ulazima u velike hotele. Izašli smo na piće, i na moje iznenađenje, uputili se u jedan od hotela. Objasniše mi da se popularni „pabovi“ nalaze upravo tamo, iako su pomalo „skriveni“. Gužva na ulazu u hotel, nebrojeno mnogo automobila koji se ispred zaustavljaju. Hotel … Continue reading Crtice iz Dubaija (8) – SAMO ZA EVROPLJANE

DUBAI: QUICK STOP TO ABU DHABI, THERE LIES THE GRAND MOSQUE (7)

One of the things I have promised myself to visit, if I ever set foot onto Emirates’ soil, is the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. There was a TV documentary that I have seen couple of years back about the way the Mosque was built and it looked so grand and surreal, that … Continue reading DUBAI: QUICK STOP TO ABU DHABI, THERE LIES THE GRAND MOSQUE (7)

DUBAI: POGLED NA ABU DABI I NESTVARNA DŽAMIJA ŠEIKA ZAJEDA (7)

Dok smo fotografisali sve one džamije po Dubaiju, setimo se da smo u jednom od dokumentaraca svojevremeno gledali kako je građena jedna velelepna, bela, u blizini Abu Dabija, te nam je još tada prošlo kroz glavu kako ćemo sigurno, ako nas put ikad nanese na tu stranu sveta, to morati da vidimo uživo. A put … Continue reading DUBAI: POGLED NA ABU DABI I NESTVARNA DŽAMIJA ŠEIKA ZAJEDA (7)

Glimpses of Dubai (7) – HAVING A DRINK IN THE CITY

When it comes to going out for a drink in Dubai, well... It does require certain planning in advance. Wide range of restaurants, cafes in, let's say, public places (i.e. usually in shopping center or right next to it) do offer a great choice welcoming even the pickiest tourists. But if you occasionally want to … Continue reading Glimpses of Dubai (7) – HAVING A DRINK IN THE CITY

Crtice iz Dubaija (7) – KAKO DA ODETE NA PIĆE

Kada su u pitanju izlasci u Dubaiju, treba imati u vidu da to zahteva izvesno – planiranje unapred. Široka paleta restorana, kafića na „prometnim mestima“, odnosno najčešće u šoping centrima ili tik uz njih, nude veliki izbor i zadovoljiće i najprobirljivijeg turistu. Ipak, ako poželite da popijete čašu vina ili kriglu piva, ili bilo koje … Continue reading Crtice iz Dubaija (7) – KAKO DA ODETE NA PIĆE
