Dubai by day
I have now chosen to make two posts about our wonderful days in Dubai, beside my special food post from “Saffron” that you could enjoy last week 🙂 This post will show you how we filled our days before sun set, and the next post…well, how we spent the nights. Explanations are found under each picture.
The lenght of our (mine and my friend Louise) stay in Dubai was nine days. We felt this was a perfect amount of time since there is so much to do in this city. I can understand those who don´t like Dubai. It is a bit “plastic” and, just like in the USA for example, there is no possibilities for cosy strolls in between sights. Despite this, we found Dubai faschinating. It is a bit like a fairy tail, just there to entertain you. If you don´t stay in a fancy beach hotel there are frankly not that much beach to chose between. Out of the public spots available we found the JBR (Jumeirah Beach Residence) beach the best. We also tried two beach clubs, but they allways come with some kind of charge. However if you anyhow plan to eat and drink it is not that bad since the price is usually a “minimum spend” in return for a sunbed. In those places there is allways great upbeat lounge music in the background and a more sofisticated feel.
Besides spending time on the beach we also had time for some shopping and to take a peak from the 124th floor of the Burj Khalifa building, until today the world´s tallest. Heavy rain our last two days (average rainfall in Dubai is three days a year so yes, I guess you could say we were a bit unlucky) gave us a good opportunity to visit the Karama “fake” market and the older parts of Dubai – Bur Dubai and Deira, the latter famous for the biggest gold souk in the world.
