New BVI Flotilla for Seafarer

Seafarer has announced a new BVI flotilla for the winter running between January and April from Tortola.  The new programme is being run in association with Dream Yachts who have a long standing presence in the area with a fleet of 34-52 foot mono-hulls as well as an excellent choice of catamarans. This will be a smaller flotilla run by an experienced Seafarer lad yacht crew, with the added feature that guests can also book an en suite cabin on the lead yacht if they would rather take a back seat and relax on their Caribbean flotilla holiday.

It must be noted that the world’s largest shopping mall, Dubai Mall, is also found right there in Dubai . Numerous shopping malls, some sources say, more than 70 are waiting for the excited shopper in Dubai .

While there are malls and shops that await the traveller in Dubai , the traveller might also be happy to learn that one can also have the option to stay in Apartments in Dubai. Yes, one can have this option instead of staying in hotels.

Nevertheless, travellers can also rent Dubai furnished apartments instead. These apartments are great for a family or a group of friends together. Their rates are also great in your budget as well. And having some savings could also mean more travel money. This could mean more opportunities to shop as well as more places to check out in Dubai .

Furthermore, Dubai has 12 hours of sun everyday! How good is that for someone who loves time in the beach under the sun or during daylight? Other than swimming, you can also go snorkelling, scuba diving, paragliding, jet skiing and even fishing! And if you are worried that you don’t have the needed gear, you really shouldn’t. You could rent the gear you need for your beach or sea adventure.

If the beach or sea is what really captures your heart whether in Dubai or elsewhere, then you may want to consider staying near it. And the perfect place for you may just be one of the Dubai beach apartments. Let it be known that renting an apartment in the beach while in Dubai is an option for the traveller. You don’t have to stay in the hotel if you indeed prefer a more “homey” feeling while on your trip.

Where to spend the August 2012 long weekend?

This coming August 18 – 21, 2012 will be the first long weekend. And as early as today, since I am always hearing my friends and on Facebook getting excited for these days to come, I am wondering where am I supposed to spend these days too.

Can you suggest any places where I can go to? Any places that is worth to stay for even just three (3) days where I can relax in the middle of the busy days. But sure thing, after the long weekend, busier days will rise again.
