Posted on March 18, 2016 by Cheryl Rodewig in Travel

Traveling is becoming more and more commonplace and the new generation of travelers expects a lot more from where they stay. Travelers are on the road a lot more now whether for business or pleasure and brand loyalty is no longer something that keeps a guest coming back for more because there are just so many options out there that are reaching out to this new type of traveler.

I ensured that I kept away from the glitz and glamour and walked through its historical neighborhoods. This experience not only introduced me to its bygone eras but it also helped me find the gems of the Emirate that are high on art, culture and heritage.
