A city of hid­den trea­sures

Friday - - News - SHARON GOMES, DUBAI DHANAN­JAY M, DUBAI

I absolutely loved the ar­ti­cle ‘The in­sider’s guide to Dubai’ (June 28). Af­ter hav­ing lived in the city for more than 15 years, I thought I knew ev­ery nook and cranny of this ever-chang­ing place, but this ar­ti­cle proved me com­pletely wrong.

The author men­tioned so many spots that I had not even heard of. This sum­mer I am def­i­nitely go­ing to don my tourist hat and ex­plore all th­ese hid­den trea­sures. I en­joyed read­ing the fea­ture ‘The in­sider’s guide to Dubai’ in the travel sec­tion (June 28). Al­though I’ve been a res­i­dent of Dubai for more than a decade, there are quite a few places men­tioned in the ar­ti­cle that I didn’t know of. In fact, I vis­ited the Dubai Mu­seum only a cou­ple of years ago.

This ar­ti­cle was an eye-opener of sorts. I’ve de­cided to make it a point to ex­plore at least one lesser-known at­trac­tion not just in Dubai, but also in other emi­rates ev­ery week­end.
