Yoga Journeys: Dubai | A Mini Travel Guide

August 2, 2018

Last week you met Sarka Apperloo and we chatted about yoga pretty exclusively. But this Czech native has also called Dubai home for the past few years, and has some insight into what to do if you happen to be in town. (Side note: Sarka is a former flight attendant who's hopped her share of the globe, so you know Dubai has something special if she's decided to call it home!) Check out her recommendations for what not to miss if you happen to turn up there. Have recommendations of your own or other questions? Would love to hear them, leave them in the comments!

Describe the general mood //

A cosmopolitan melting pot where east meets west but nowhere is home 



Must-stay accomodations //

The world's only 7-star hotel, the Burj al Arab



Best place to watch the sunset //

While strolling along Kite beach



Favorite place for a healthy snack //

Try one of those signature bowls or create your own: Poke Poke Dubai. My tip is the Vegan bowl.
