Social Media and Blog Surfing....

Winter is here so thats lots of frankfurter leg shots and pictures of the pristine beaches of Dubai on your social media feed, but like us, are you looking for different inspiration on what to do on the weekend, through the week or with repeat visitors?

Its still a bit warmer than normal for October but CitiSpi always has top tips for activities that won't break the bank and keep big and small humans occupied on our website and social media feeds, in fact you can now follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, You Tube and Google + so take your pick on which your favourite feed and follow. The CitiSpi team love getting inspiration from others as well, and blog spots we particularly enjoy are Lovin Dubai, a site providing a mixture of restaurant reviews, recipes and other bits of information on Dubai, LiloneoftheAshes provides reviews and tips on how to go out on a budget, Very Hungry Explorer life as a expat and its trails and tribulations as well as travel anecdotes and stories, Sassy Mama offering great tips and advice on things to do with children in Dubai and I live in a Frying Pan, discovers and reviews the cheap eats and hidden gem restaurants that are off the beaten track around Dubai.

Dubai is such a great city and their are new things to whet the taste buds all the time. The CitiSpi Team recently enjoyed the Al Mansour Dhow Cruise, Radisson Blu Deira Creek, with some friends passing through that had been to Dubai before, and we ere looking for something different. It sails every day at 8pm, there is the usual Arabic fair but also interesting twists like Camel Burgers. It didn't break the bank either just AED 185 with soft drinks and AED284 with unlimited house drinks, children 5-12 are half price and under 5's are free.

The CitiSpi Team also enjoyed the opening last Wednesday of the new Ladies Night at Tresind, Radisson Royal, SZ Rd, and we have to say the view was fantastic (see our pic) and could have quite happily sat back and enjoyed it for a while. Ladies Night can be enjoyed every Wednesday at their Tre Bar (50th Floor) and its three free drinks for ladies; and the mixologist was very good!

We are looking forward to our next Ladies Lunch tomorrow at West 14th, The Palm, where we intend to enjoy their delicious 'In the Week' lunch special. You get three mini mains for just AED120, Sun-Thu 12.30pm till 3pm, don't think dinner will be required! We are also currently partnering with some spas to offer special deals for our CitiSpi customers, so watch this space.

Have a great week ahead CitiSpies, remember its dry on Wednesday sunset till Thursday sunset, and Thursday is a day off for the private sector.
