Exclusive! Nicole Scherzinger Dishes on Dubai

18 Mar 2014

In the UAE for Taste of Dubai, Nicole Scherzinger chatted to Ahlan! about her love of shopping, her fitness regime and when she'll be visiting us again

Nicole Scherzinger was in town for Taste of Dubai as British Airways' very special guest to join the airline in their exclusive VIP Lounge. Here's what we asked her when we caught up for a chat...  

What is your favourite destination for a shopping spree and food indulgence?
When it comes to shopping, I can never get enough of the fashion capitals of the world! I am extremely fortunate that with my job I get to travel a lot, and I absolutely love to shop in Dubai. There is such an eclectic mix of style here, it’s so inspiring. Food…every country has its own delights gastronomical and I’m lucky to have enjoyed the best of the best across many cuisines whenever I travel. That said – there’s no doubt that I do miss a touch of home style cuisine if I am on the road for very long!

Where would your ultimate holiday destination be and why?
I enjoy going out into the ocean on a yacht and soaking up the sun, and if possible watching out for dolphins! I love the relaxing tranquillity of it all. I would say that Antigua is one of my favourite destinations!

What are your top recommendations for a weekend in Los Angeles?
Don’t forget your sunglasses because, like Dubai, the sun is always shining here!

What is your fitness regime?
I’m a runner – I enjoy running whether it is indoors or outdoors and there is nothing like starting your day with a good run to clear your head. I enjoy a yoga session at the end of the day and love the meditative and energised state that a good yoga session leaves you in.

Any idea when will you be visiting Dubai again?
Every time I leave Dubai, I’m already envisioning when I will return…
