Belgians in Dubai - a series


Salua Daghay is a Belgian Moroccan quantum physicist and travel enthusiast. After working several years in Physics Research at the Engineering Department of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel as well as the Royal Observatory of Belgium, she followed her heart and moved to the UAE in 2009 together with her husband, who as a marine biologist and coastal environmentalist, was assigned on several projects in Abu Dhabi and afterwards in Dubai.
Her first job was at the Yas Marina Circuit, where the first Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was held in 2009, where she created a bespoke behind the scenes guided tour of the F1 complex and started promoting the Venue Tour at the F1 circuit in 2010, a tour which is still running till this day.

Afterwards, she created the first guided visit in Masdar City, Abu Dhabi, focusing on sustainability and urban development and in 2012 she discovered the need for quality and specialized thematic tour designs in the UAE tourism industry in general. 

Because of this, she created Unveil Arabia and since then she has been designing and delivering many specialized tours and round trips across the Emirates for extensive clients.
