My first purchase a camel, I know a souvenir, but what the heck if you cannot buy fabric you may as well get something useless!.
In the afternoon was our desert safari, apparently, this is a popular tourist attraction. we were picked up at 4 pm, did I. Mention that it was 40 degrees plus.
Proceeded to drive out to the desert and do burn outs on the sand dunes, not sure who's idea this was, but here goes, not for the faint hearted or if you have a back injury. First stop was a pith stop ( loo break) and to let air out of the tyres, before driving over the sand
All the 4 wheel drives involved in the sand duning.
Sunset in the desert, did I mention the heat!!! Now cooling to 38 degrees!
As my back was slightly tender after the sand duning, I declined the camel and quad bike ride.
Of course always up for a henna tattoo, DH also got one surprise, surprise !!
We were picked up the next morning for our city tour. First stop was Dubai Creek and the ever expanding skyline of downtown Dubai. Al Seef marina.
As the most of the museum is located underground, you had to walk down a circular path.
Display of some early jewellery worn by the women.
Bodies entombed and laid in a fetal position.
Below is the Burj Al Arab, we did not enter this building.
Atlantis the Palm, lovely hotel along the beachfront.
Downtown Dubai, a new twisted building being built.
Burj Khalifa, an amazing building with 162 floors, we reached the top in 15 seconds. Dined on the 122nd floor for my birthday.
Dubai Mall, ice rink, waterfalls and aquariums, great shopping as well.
