Why you should travel to Dubai this summer

For decades, Dubai has been one of the forerunning cities of class, luxury, and the perfect getaways. Some time ago, it was only a small fishing village in the Arabian Gulf, but over the years it transformed into a sun-soaked modern metropolis rich with diverse cultures and experiences! During all seasons of the year, people from all around the world gather here to experience the magical wonder of this amazing city. However, now more than ever is a great time for you to book your flight for Dubai. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, travel of any kind was more or less prohibited, but due to the increase of vaccinations and flattening the curve, Dubai’s doors are open to tourists once again. Before you plan your trip to Dubai, make sure to check whether or not you’ll need a visa to enter the country. If you meet certain conditions, you may be granted a temporary visa upon arriving at the airport.

Downtown Dubai is filled with world-class shopping, iconic landmarks such as the Burj Khalifa, The Dubai Fountain, the Dubai Mall, and has a stretch of streets with gorgeous architecture featuring some of the most exquisite five-star hotels and restaurants. While the majority of the downtown area is urban, you can also find several green spaces to enjoy a stroll through. Downtown Dubai was created with the community in mind with perfectly landscaped promenades, and pedestrian-friendly walkways.

Dubai’s vast array of cuisine options are absolutely a must-try, but the local Emirati cuisine sets itself apart and your trip would definitely not be complete without giving it a try! The local Emirati restaurants have authentic Emirati food including Kabsa (basmati rice with meat and infused with several spices including nutmeg and saffron), Luqaimat (deliciously sweet and sticky dumplings with date syrup), and Fouga Deyay (grilled chicken and rice marinated in local aromatic spices). If you’re looking for an activity that is more local and authentic to the region, there are multiple boutiques in the area that offer classes for activities such as pottery, weaving, perfumery, and calligraphy.

These are just a few examples of why you should visit Dubai, but in 2021 there is another crucial element that makes visiting Dubai all that more worth it. Dubai is once again open for tourism assuming you meet the expected criteria. Many countries are still locked down against international travel, but the UAE (United Arab Emirates) has opened its doors for tourists to come drink their fill of luxury and high-end vacationing once again. This is in part due to the UAE’s low numbers of daily recorded infection rates, and their precautions taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

New Year's Eve - 2021

For many of us, it is a relief to finally call in the new year and to say goodbye to 2020. Not only has the COVID-19 pandemic spread across and affected how the entire world is run, but there were a plethora of other hurdles we had to overcome as well. Thankfully, a new year and a new beginning is finally within our grasp. Unfortunately, given the continuing circumstances with the pandemic, it makes it very hard to have any kind of regular New Year’s celebration. This blog post will hopefully give you some inspiration and good ideas to safely reign in the new year.

Times Square - New York

Times Square (New York) has long been one of the most famous venues for celebrating New Year’s Eve. Every year millions of people would converge together to commemorate the passing of another year and to celebrate the start of a new chapter. Just as you can’t stop time from ticking down to a new year, the famous New Year’s Eve Ball will also inevitably drop at midnight. The famous New Year’s Eve Ball has been dropping in Times Square for over one hundred years! This year, of course, things will be looking a little different. While Times Square itself will be closed off to the public, you can still watch and participate in the virtual viewing of the ball dropping at midnight! You can also head over to their website to watch a short video about the fascinating history of the Times Square Ball!

London - England

London has consistently been chosen as one of the most popular destinations to celebrate the New Year! This year London’s New Year’s Day Parade (LNYDP) is going virtual with their Welcome Back message to the World parade! Featuring an impressive display of performances from well known artists and community and cultural performance groups, you’re not going to want to miss this! You can watch this special parade live on their website, or if you’re at home in the USA you can even turn on your TV to tune into the festivities!

There are also a large amount of smaller virtual celebrations that you can find on websites such as for free or just a small fee. Just because you’re at home doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate in style! Don’t be afraid to dress up, to declare your resolutions, to toast with champagne, to cater your dinner or prepare an impressive meal, and to make some noise to celebrate the end of a new year and the beginning of a fresh start!

If there is somewhere special in the world that you want to spend your New Year's Eve, flying there commercially is all but impossible in the current state of the world right now. However, we at Fly Largent can provide safe, sanitary, and luxurious private flights and transportation for you and your family. Contact us today for a free quote! From all of us here at Fly Largent, we want to wish you a very happy holiday and many blessings to you, your family, and your friends!

Christmas towns in the USA to visit this winter holiday

Wintertime is soon to be set upon us and the cold winter chill is starting to blow in. As you curl up inside and sip your hot apple cider, you may start to wonder how COVID-19 is going to affect this holiday season. With most events being canceled or reduced and travel still being restricted in most countries, options feel pretty limited. However, not even COVID-19 can kill the Christmas spirit! There are numerous cities and towns scattered across the US that are notorious for putting on impressive displays of lights, good cheer, and holiday spirit while maintaining physical distancing and appropriate saftey measures. Though travel is restricted worldwide, it's still possible to travel within the US, and we at Fly Largent would love to help you this holiday season! Listed below are a couple of our recommendations on where you should visit this Christmas to experience the full beauty and wonder of the holidays.

Places around the world to go to recharge your batteries and why you should

After a difficult and exhausting year, 2020 is finally nearing its end. Between wildfires spreading across Australia and the US, a global pandemic that has shaken the very foundation of life as we know it, and so many other circumstances, things have definitely been difficult on everyone across the world. All of these events have essentially put all types of travel on hold for the near future, but it is our hope that with us all working together to flatten the COVID-19 curve, the world can slowly start to rebuild and recover some sense of normalcy. With all of this added stress and pressure to our daily lives, it isn’t abnormal for our mental health to take a hit as well. At FlyLargent we are advocates of all things that improve quality of life! Mental health is such an important factor to our lives that should never be overlooked; and what better way than to partner improving mental health with traveling the world? In general, it has been often said how travel can benefit your health in a plethora of ways, but this blog post is going to focus on some of the best places you can visit to really give you a boost to your well-being!
