If you read my last blog post here, you already know but, my husband and I recently visited Dubai and my and we LOVED it! Let me give you a few of the highlights that are on my mind right now.
To start with IT IS HOT! BUT, per the rules of Dubai, you do have to dress accordingly.
There are so many buildings that have gone up in Dubai ………40,00 people 20 years ago and now they’re are 4 million today. They first found oil 50 years ago. All their success and advancement comes from the oil industry. And to this day it is a very vibrant and modern city. There is no Graffiti no homeless and no crime
We went to the Za’abeel Palace, which is the residence and headquarters for the Ruling Royal Family in Dubai. We could not get any closer but it was huge and on many acres of land. The 3rd largest Mosque in the World is Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center in Abu Dhabi. The pictures don’t do it justice. It was very impressive to say the least. It is hard to describe how amazing and huge it was. Lots of marble and the chandeliers were made of Swarovski crystals which were massive.
The Burj Khalifa was an experience for me! I do not like heights. The Burj Kalifa is the tallest skyscraper in the World!! 163 floors Our tour guide kept saying you will shoot up in the elevator like a rocket....
'Well' I thought, 'I'M HERE, so I'm going to do it!!'
It was a nice, smooth ride all the way to the 124th and 125th floors. It IS truly amazing to be that high and see SO far. I HIGHLY recommend it.
Gold and Spice Market is Dubai’s big marketplace for tourists. They had plenty of gold and spices.
Everyone wanted you in their store!!
We went on a desert safari, rode a camel, learned about falcons and even held one.
The Palm also amazed me. I knew about the Palm but I did not realize that there were so many buildings and resorts on the Palm. In fact the Atlantis Resort is one of the Resorts located on The Palm.
If this isn't enough to whet your appetite for travel, our twenty somethings daughter and her husband also recently visited Dubai and they loved it and said they would like to go back. On their trip, they took time to golf and visited the Atlantis waterpark. More pictures will be on my Instagram so be sure to follow me. You'll love all the real life, "we were there" photos!
