Note: This year, we've split up the Idols travel blog. Below you'll find updates on all the stunning places Pro and the Idols have visited. For updates on shopping & cuisine click here.
Dubai is a city chock full of architectural masterpieces and what better way to see all of this than the highest point possible! That's why Pro, Thando, Thato & Yanga hopped onto HeliDubai to scope some breathtaking views of the whole city!
– and they didn't stop there either. There's nothing quite as relaxing as sitting on a boat wafting through a large expance of water. Since voting might have been weighing heavy on their minds it was probably a great idea that our Idols took some time off to ride the waves & enjoy the sunny weather.
It just wouldn't be a trip to Dubai without a little excursion to see something we have very little of here in SA: stunning, massive sand dunes stretching on and on as far as the eye can see. Our Idols ditched the swimwear for some protective clothing and buffs before setting off on a luxury tour courtesy of Platinum Heritage.
Thando, Thato, Yanga & Pro also got up-close and personal with some furry new friends once they were in the desert. Looks like it was mad fun and a tad unnerving all at once. Let us know if you'd love to take a ride on a camel or if you'd never go anywhere near one using #IdolsSA on any of our platforms! Looking at these adorable snaps, we know we certainly would!
Our Idols have had an incredible time exploring Dubai but there's still Sunday's show to be reckoned with so they had to squeeze in some much needed rehearsal time so they're in top form when they perform their brand new singles for the first time on Sunday. The cherry on top? You all get an exclusive, acoustic, first listen. Make sure to let us know your thoughts using "#IdolsSA" on any of our social platforms.
