Its a number of years since I've posted on the forum and it's great to see the regulars are still here. We are going back to Dubai in October, staying at the Grosvenor House. We have persuaded my brother, sister and partners to come with us. One is 60 and one is 50 in Sept. I would like to surprise them with a bit of a birthday celebration and considered doing maybe 4hrs on a private boat with drinks and a picnic/bbq. It may be a silly question but I'll ask anyway: can boats access any of the islands around The World or anywhere similar?
Does anyone have any recommendations? I know there are numerous links to trips and boat hire, I prefer to go off any advice from you guys?
In my 10 or so visits to Dubai over a number of years, I have shamefully never been on the creek or spice souk over that way. I would like to take the family over there, I know Latimer was an advocate of Basta Arts Café, is this still going and if so is it still worth a visit? Again any advice will be gratefully rec'd.
