The 3rd day, we embarked on a 5-hr excursion of "Dubai City Tour" starting at 9 am with our travel guide Mr. Mirza. Reached the "Zabeel Palace" (1) where the King resides & soak in some contemporary architecture built in 19th century at the "Jumeirah Mosque" (2)(for entering the mosque, one needs to file an application before). They will then take you to a Dubai Museum(3) for understanding a brief history of the city; you will meet here a marketing wizard who will make the perfect pitch & will tell you that its their 10th anniversary, horoscope knowledge, 50% discount & would persuade you to buy "Gold Carpets & emeralds". We went to see "Burj Al Arab, a 7-star hotel" (4) from a distance. The hotel has got an individual chef for each room, thus the star rating is 7. We reached "Jumeirah Beach" (5) which had such clean waters & one can do surfing, swimming as per their choice, stunning landscape & scenery, a definite treat for the senses. We roamed through the Palm Islands and been dropped back to hotel at around 1:30. (Rs. 1500/person)We had our dinner at a famous Pakistani "Ravi Restrau." which offered us shahi mutton, lentils & roti & was a cheaper affair.
We were picked up from our hotel by 2pm and transferred to Hilton Garden Inn hotel, from there we were supposed to get into a big bus to go on a city tour. All Indians in the bus, it was fun altogether..!! The very first thing we saw is Sheikh Zayed Road, this has so many lanes which drives through Downtown and till Abu Dhabi as well. We came across Emirates Towers, full skyline of Dubai and ofcourse Burj Khalifa on the way. Our tour guide was from Pakistan named Ali, who spoke in Hindi all the time and explained us completely about Dubai very nicely.
