Dubai Through My Lenses-2
I would suggest everyone plan your itinerary ahead so that you are not lost like us, googling which places to cover in the short span of time. There is no dearth of places in Dubai for sightseeing. Whilst going bonkers over the places to choose from, here’s what we did.
Resembling the Palm Tree, The Palm Island is one of the world’s most daring development. This man-made archipelago is distinctly visible from space because of its size. A drive through the island will make you wish to stop the moment and feel the royalness. Bright Clear Sunshine, natural beauty and high rises all around made us all the more to admire the beauty of the place.
A huge number of tourists along the bay area taking selfies with or without the selfie stick was a common sight. Well, we too managed a few, without disturbing anyone.
The rose-hued Palm Atlantis located at the top of the Palm is one of the most recognizable icons of Dubai. It’s Home to 5-star hotel, celebrity chef restaurants and selection of entertainment and leisure options.
The best way to explore Dubai Marina is to simply walk around it. The Marina has been built with several kilometers of walkways. Skyscrapers poised alongside the winding canal, Dubai Marina has the most fascinating buildings and attractions where visitors can relax. Luxury Yachts departs every hour for a tour of the area.
With many constructions still in development, the Dubai Marina is changing. The Latest development is the Dubai Eye which is going to open it’s door soon for locals and tourists. I hope next time I am gonna enjoy the ride too.
All you there!!! Nope, I am not scared at all. On the contrary, it excites me.
Famous for the serene beaches, Dubai has quite a good number of them. Kite Beach is best known to be for kite surfers, water-sports and a list of beach activities.
The moment you name about beaches, Soha’s heart goes ga-ga and no wonder it’s an underlying pull towards the stunning stretch of white sands giving you an experience like none other. To say it “A Piece of Paradise” would justify my statement. The wide stretch allows your privacy even during the busiest days during weekends. Relax, Unwind and Make Memories.
Mall of Emirates
Will you believe, if I mention about Skiing in the land of deserts. Ahh!! Dubai is truly a land of wonders. Ski Dubai is the first indoor Ski Resort in the Middle East. At a temperature of -1 Degree to 2 Degree Celcius, the park maintains the temperature throughout the year.
It is a great option to spend a few hours, watching the ramp show of Penguins, Skiing, Snowboard, Zip Line, Tubing, Wall Climbing and many such ranges of winter activities.
It was one of the most memorable experiences for us to encounter the colony of King and Gentoo Snow Penguins. You should definitely visit the park to experience the magical wintery adventures however hot the outside temperature is.
Souks of Dubai-Meena Bazaar
“Souk or Souq” is the Arabic word which stands for the Market Place where any kind of goods is brought or exchanged. You can’t come to Dubai and leave without a bit of shopping. You must definitely pick for yourself local spices and souvenirs. Meena Bazaar in Bur-Dubai has lanes of shops where you can indulge in your shopping spree at unbelievable rates. While walking down the lanes, I forgot for a moment we are outside our country, for the reason that we encountered Indians at the majority of Shops. That’s so COOL.
We grabbed a few for us!!! :)I forgot to click a picture though. Hopefully next time.
There are other souks too, to explore which gives you the region’s blend of the old and new. They are scattered all over the city, which needs planning efficiently to save time and hassle.
