Destination Dubai with Jo Malone

This week, I’m so excited to say that business mogul and perfumer Jo Malone makes a return to the podcast, transporting us to the Middle East in this Dubai Destination Special. For avid listeners you might remember that back in Season 2 when Jo joined me as a guest, she talked about Dubai with such love, picking it as one of her all time favourites, she spends about a month each year out there, so I could think of no one better to join us today as we uncover her Dubai travel diaries, her favourite spots, hidden gems and recommendations as someone who knows the city so well. And later, we’ll be joined Dubai-based travel journalist Sarah Hedley-Hymers, who has her finger on the pulse of everything that is worth knowing about Dubai, and together they both really evoke the sights, the scents, and vibrancy of this Emirati city, and really get under its skin - beyond its glamorous and shiny first impressions, they really reveal its heart and heritage too.It’s Februar 2021 right now, and unfortunately that means that for most of us travel is currently extremely restricted, which is especially disappointing as Dubai is such a wonderful spot for some winter sun. But I hope this episode inspires you to visit when we are all able to travel easily again. So, from desert nights under the stars to the heady aromas of the spice market, abra boat rides across the historic Dubai creek to its beaches and luxury hotels, let’s head to Dubai. Destination Recap: Jo MaloneDubai desertSatwaDubai CreekSpice MarketThe One & Only The Residence Fish Beach Taverna, Le Meridien W HotelMusandam Peninsula, Oman Six Senses Zighy Bay, OmanSarah Hedley-Hymers Perfume HouseAbra rides at Dubai CreekDubai Fountain Burj KhalifaDubai Mall AquariumThe Pointe Fountain Food District, The PointeJumeriah Beach Residence Jumeriah Lake TowersStreetery, Dubai Vietnamese Foodies, Dubai Pitfire Pizza, Dubai Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve Al Maha Desert Resort Sonara CampFor more information and inspiration to plan your holiday to Dubai visit www.visitdubai.com or follow them on Instagram @visit.dubaiThank you Fujifilm for their support...  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
