Dubai to Sharjah
Head to the city of Sharjah for a relaxing break from the noise and rush of Dubai and an intimate experience of UAE culture. An educational and cultural heart of the country, come here for numerous museums, cultural centres, and its grand University City. While here the must see includes the beautiful Al Noor Mosque, this Ottoman style mosque overlooking the Khalid lagoon is the most magnificent one amongst the 600 mosques in Sharjah. The city is also home to an aquarium, which is spread over two floors and has an enchanting world of clownfish, seahorses, eels, and sharks.
London to Bristol
Foodie capital of the West Country, Bristol has got it all. From cheesecake at Hart’s Bakery to modern British plates in a shipping container at Box-E, you could easily spend two days here doing nothing but eating. When done, go around the waterways and see the city from the water. Bristol Ferry Boats operates waterbus services 364 days a year, letting you jump on and off as you choose from Bristol Temple Meads train station to the SS Great Britain. Make time to visit the Clifton Suspension Bridge, first opened in 1864, the grade I-listed structure is widely considered to be Brunel’s greatest work and is an internationally recognised icon of the city.
