Best of 2017 – Dubai

The year 2017 has been great for Taqato.com and it has achieved a lot of milestones which I couldn’t imagine when started 2 years ago. To begin with –

  • A huge boost in visitors and statistics.
  • A rare achievement and acknowledgment by Google maps for hitting 10 million views (btw it’s 12,596,357 as of 31-Dec 2017)
  • Crossing 10 million views on Zomato (11,747,145 as of 31-Dec 2017)
  • Gave away vouchers worth thousands of AED
  • Attended dozens of movie premieres
  • Added a Tech section
  • Prestigious invite by the Government of China for Travel Blogging #BeautifulChina

Visited around 200 restaurants in 2017 and below are some of the outstanding experiences that I would like to award!

Hands down the best burger in Dubai! The bacon and the flavors are unique. The new branch at Kite Beach is a gem!

Stayed at multiple hotels this year in 3 different countries. The best and luxurious was definitely the address Boulevard!
