Dubai Holidays

First Posted in March 1st, 2008

Yesterday, we went with Evans and her housemates and a friend from Abu Dhabi to do some sightseeing.  We went to Dubai Creek, experienced taking the abra (a small wooden ferry boat) across the creek, Bastakia where you get to see windtowers built in the olden days.  We also walked past the museum and strolled along the souq areas where you see the spices souq and gold souq.  We ended the day at the Mall of the Eimrates, the largest shopping mall outside of North America.  You can find not only shops, restaurants, but also an indoor ski slope.

The highlight for today will be the desert safaris!  Before that, we went to the Jumeirah Public Beach and you get to see a very nice view of the famous Burj Al Arab Hotel (the sail shape hotel) and Souk Madinat Jumeirah.

A 4WD picked us up at our lunch destination to start our journey to the desert.  They drove us all the way to the highest sand dunes and perform stunts and do ‘dunes bashing’.  Those with faint hearts are advised to hold on to your plastic bags.  Check out our photos and you will know why.  After that, you get to see the beautiful sunset and we were brought to the camel farm.  You can take free camel ride, free sheesha and heena and go for the bbq dinner around a big arabic tent.  The highlight for the night entertainment will be belly dancing.
