WHO JES­SICA GEE IN­STA­GRAM @THEBUCKETLISTFAMILY Greece is a place we love to visit; the light is won­der­ful for fam­ily pho­tos. How­ever, we re­cently spent a week in United Arab Emi­rates in Dubai. We ended up in Dubai by chance when our plans had rerouted us be­cause of some un­rest in Turkey. Although it was ex­tremely hot out­side, the city is very clean, high-tech and up­scale. It has some of the best shop­ping, restau­rants and in­door ac­tiv­i­ties we’ve ever seen. We vis­ited the Burj Khal­ifa (the tallest build­ing in the world), went ski­ing in­doors and spent a day at Mod­hesh World, an in­door amuse­ment park. We had the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence both of the Ritz-Carl­ton lo­ca­tions in Dubai. They were both so in­cred­i­bly lux­u­ri­ous. Our favourite thing about stay­ing at a Ritz­Carl­ton is how ex­tremely thought­ful the staff are. For ex­am­ple, they knew how much we loved healthy food and smooth­ies, so ev­ery morn­ing we would go to break­fast and they would serve us a tray full of var­i­ous smoothie op­tions with our names on it! Ev­ery day our room was re­stocked with tasty treats and there were new ac­tiv­i­ties for the kids. The peo­ple wel­comed us with such warmth and kind­ness. To us, that was the most lux­u­ri­ous thing of all.
