Exploring the Impressive Louvre Abu Dhabi, UAE

Architect Jean Nouvel designed the impressive and beautiful Louvre Abu Dhabi

Until recently I thought of Abu Dhabi as a city one connects through when flights through Dubai aren’t available. But that view was challenged during my latest visit to the UAE. I was surprised by how many people suggested visiting the Louvre Abu Dhabi, a world class museum which opened in 2017 as part of a thirty-year deal between the city of Abu Dhabi and the French government.

The Nobu Atlantis The Palm Dubai Experience

The zen sophistication of a table in the Nobu Garden

While I wouldn’t exactly say I’m a fangirl of chef Nobu Matsuhisa, I do make it a point to dine at his restaurants during my travels. It’s always interesting to see what remains consistent on the menu and how the experience varies in the context of different locations and cultures.

The Lost Chambers Aquarium at Atlantis The Palm Dubai

Over the weekend, I flew from Colombo, Sri Lanka to Dubai, UAE where I had a 20 hour layover before flying on to London. What to do when you have one night to check out Dubai? There are so many options.

I had been invited to come as a guest to check out The Lost Chambers Aquarium at Atlantis The Palm, and after discovering there was a Nobu nearby on the property– the decision was clear. I would spend my only night in Dubai exiting Atlantis.
