Hello Everyone! Thank you so much for being here. It is the 1st official post on the new website! I am so happy, Thank you again for clicking and hope you enjoy this one.
Today our blog post is about Dubai! Yes Dubai, the awesome and the modern city in UAE. Since there is a lot of information that I want to share with you, I am going to make it into 2 parts so you can enjoy and have more information!! Yay lets start!!
To start this post, It is the city with the cool buildings AND the tallest building in the WORLD!!! Burj Khalifa.
1st part is going to include Dubai mall (where Burj khalifa Located) and Emirates mall (where Ski Dubai located).
How to get there
Dubai mall is on the red metro line and connect directly to the mall (You have to walk “a little bit” from the metro).
Zeina tip: Ask your hotel for bus transportation, basically every good mall have their own transportation. It will take you from and back to the hotel FOR FREE!!
What to do
1- Burj Kalifa and Dubai fountain
One of the epic scenes that I will forever remember is The view of Dancing Fountain with Burj Khalfia Background. The Fountain dances on different songs and it starts at 6:30 with half an hour break between each song. Make sure to book your place cause it gets crowded!
I posted a simple video of the fountain so you can enjoy as much as I did!!!
2- The Souk
A traditional shops area that will take you to the past, nothing to buy there really, just walk in the halls and enjoy the cool atmosphere and YES there is Mado restaurant there and if you follow me then you know I love MADO!
3- Dubai Aquarium
Dubai Mall is HUGE! but if you get lost and found a HUGE fish tank then you are near the Aquarium. They have a lot of different fish kinds and if you are with small kids they are going to LOVE it!
Entrance fees: 100 DH
Children below 3 years of age are free of charge.
For shopping purposes (like me) this mall was so expensive. However, if you go in the sale season then its the best mall ever.
I found you a link for Sales Seasons for 2017! ( AMAZING i know): Sales seasons.
It’s smaller than Dubai mall but its still BIG! take a map in the front disk so you won’t get lost! Also you can get there by metro on red line or by the free shuttle buses that the mall itself provide (the keyword here is FREE).
Whats special about Emirates mall that it contains Ski Dubai which is a whole snow city, where you can play, ski and enjoy the snow when its 50 degrees OUTSIDE! Amazing.
I couldn’t go inside because I didn’t have someone to play with :(.
At the end, Dubai was different yet lovely. The most cool thing I witnessed there was people! Meeting people from all over the world, knowing different cultures and becoming more understanding.
This was only the 1st part of Dubai, follow the blog for the 2nd part next week which will include Dubai Miracle garden and Global Village YAAY!
