Just few months back I got married & we traveled to Dubai for our honeymoon. Me & my wife always wanted to visit Dubai. We were really excited about our trip. As soon as we came out of the Dubai International Airport I saw a placard of my name. The cab driver was well in time to take us to our hotel The Country Club Hotel. He was really courteous & quite informative.
Dubai City Tour:
Our day started with the Dubai City tour. Dubai is a perfect blend of modern & traditional city. Our cab drove through exclusive Jumeirah, one of Dubai’s most upscale residential districts. Soaring sky scrapers with glitz and glamour of the city was amazing to see. We got a chance to visit the Dubai Museum, Jumeirah Beach, Mall of Emirates. This was truly an amazing day out.
After the city tour we went for the Dubai Desert Safari. Big monstrous SUV’s roaring their engines were waiting for us as soon as we reached for the Dubai Desert Safari. We had a great time made special by our guide Shahid. The facilities were larger than life with great dune drive, excellent food, amazing sights & great entertainment. Going up and down the high dunes was a thrilling experience.
Our 2nd day in Dubai started with an adventure activity. We had booked the famous sky diving activity. It was such a thrilling experience. We had booked in advance for the tandem jump. For an extra cost they included a video of our jump also in the package. The view was breathtaking. On one side I saw the entire Palm Island aerial view and on the other side the Skyline of Dubai aerial view. It was a dream come true experience.
Dhow Creek Cruise:
In the evening on that day we took a beautiful old roofed boats from Bur Dubai Abra Station on the southern side, and rode across the creek at sunset. It was a sublime experience far from the glitz and glamour of the metropolitan Dubai. We saw the gold clubs, heritage village, Sheik Saeed’s birth place and various other attractions. A lavish dinner was served on the cruise that we enjoyed a lot.
Next morning, we had a hotel transfer to fabulous Atlantis The Palm. It is a super awesome luxurious hotel built on an island. There were lots of exciting activities that made Atlantis hotel an epicenter of adventure & amazing experience. Activities like swim with dolphin at Dolphin Bay & The Lost Chambers Aquarium were an unforgettable experience.
Dubai is very famous for shopping & there is nothing you cannot buy when shopping in Dubai. From gold to electronics, designer labels and luxury items, you name it you get it. My wife being a shopaholic grabbed so many things. I had to carry all the carry bags all over Dubai malls for her. It seemed that shopping is a national pastime in Dubai. Everywhere we went there were people shopping, shopping & shopping.
We had remaining two days to ourselves in which we just roamed around the magical city. All in all, we had lots of fun in Dubai. It was an unforgettable experience.
