What does DJ Khaled love more than coining catchphrases? Jet skiing. Now, he's combined the two with the Booking.com #WETHEBEST Jet Skiing Package.
Booking.com Launches Booking Experiences in Miami with DJ Khaled
DJ Khaled knows how to live his best life - and he wants you to do the same. Thanks to Khaled’s collab with travel company Booking.com, you can experience major cities (L.A., San Francisco, New York City and the 305) just like the former Ocean Drive cover star with Booking Experiences. The special package allows travelers to make exclusive reservations fit for a music mogul, like sunset cruises and laser mazes and even score an “in” at the hottest night clubs.
So what can we expect from Khaled’s Miami experience? “What I always do: jet ski!” he says. Khaled’s aptly named #WETHEBEST Jet Skiing Package gives you all the essentials you need during your ride on the waves. “It’s dope,” says Khaled.
Khaled launched the #WETHEBEST Jet Skiing Package with a private party at a One Sotheby’s mansion, and answered your burning questions (What’s his dream vacation destination? Does Asahd have his own jet ski? Etc...).
What inspired you to create this package with Booking.com?
DJ KHALED: I go out of town a lot and I go to Booking.com and I get a place to stay and the Booking Experiences just hooks it up. If I want a jet ski or something, it’s a one stop shop! And I like to feel like I’m home when I’m away from home. It’s a vibe.
What sets the Miami experience apart from the other destinations?
DJ KAHLED: Miami is something so special. It’s not just a beautiful place; the people are beautiful. And it’s not just about South Beach - across the bridge there’s Liberty City, Opa Locka, Miramar, Kendall, Hialeah, Wynwood. And the city continues to grow and I’m so blessed to be part of the history. I came from the bottom, you know what I’m saying? And just to see how far we’ve come, I praise Miami and scream Miami everywhere I go. It’s my life!
Asahd has produced an album. He was on our cover in a Rolls Royce. So we need to know - does he have his own jet ski?
DJ KHALED: Not yet! But when he sees my jet ski he always goes, “Dada! Dada!” When he gets older, I’m sure he’s going to jump on a jet ski and I’ll definitely teach him. He loves the yachts, he loves the water, he loves the boats. He’s a great kid. He is so smart and I’m just so proud of him and I love him. I’m the father of Asahd!
If you could describe your dream vacation, where would it be?
DJ KHALED: My dream vacation is to just be with my family. I love going to the The Bahamas, but Miami is my home and it’s like a vacation because I’m on the road so much, so when I come home I jet ski, I go on the boat, I barbecue, and that’s what I do. The weather is beautiful. Even when I go to different cities and they have beautiful weather, it’s not like Miami! The sun hits you in a different way here.
