On the way to Dubai -Chapter 1 :

.............

Day 1

We reached Hotel at around 7:30 pm and were greeted by two gentlemen - one from India & other from Pakistan..it was good to see the chemistry between the two.I wished our countries shared the same warmth too.

(#Tip 1- Choose your Hotel yourself, even if your are going through a travel portal.Just check the price band of Hotels they are offering , find few better hotels in the same range at Tripadvisor.com or similar website and let travel agent arrange any one of those for you. They will resist initially, but if it's an individual tour , then 9 out of 10 times they agree )

Since I had pre-ordered an Indian meal for supper at Dubai Mall, we rushed with our check in and straight away headed for Dinner.

See the thing is , we Indians love to travel around the world,wear best of the foreign brands,carry accessories of high end western tags but when it comes to food, nothing makes us feel better than having our very own Indian food and an Indian delicacy in a foreign land tastes 20 times better . Hence The India Palace & The Indian Pavilion

I intentionally booked evening meals on all three nights at Dubai mall since that way you can watch the spectacular Fountain show behind Dubai mall everyday along with the beautiful Burj Khalifa without wasting Dirhams on hefty taxi rentals.

( #Tip 2 - Pre book your dinner at any of the Dubai's popular central place from India itself along with pick & drop as taxi charges are relatively high in Dubai )

Day 2

Next day , Prado came bang on time to pick us up for scheduled city tour of Dubai.Of all the places that we have visited over the years,this city tour really stands out.They gonna show you some really wonderful stuff and usually ,the guides here are very well educated & professional.The more the guide tells you about the miraculous making of Today's Dubai within a span of few years ,the more you feel attached to this emirate of UAE. Have a look at some of the remarkable places we visited during City tour.

The Heritage Village- beautifully crafted artificial village showing rich Arab Culture :

Jumeriah Mosque -The only Mosque of Dubai which is open to Non-muslims (including women) :

The Burj Al Arab - Apparently the world's most expensive Hotel,situated at Jumeriah beach which is the probably only public beach of Dubai where rules are little relaxed for tourists to enjoy :

The Palm Islands - No words can justify the this man made miracle .Dubai has played God by creating a world over water, defying all laws of nature.

(# Tip 3 - Just tell your guide that you are a Shahrukh Khan Fan and he will go all out for you.They just love him there)

In the evening, we went for Dhow Cruise.While the cruise ride was fun ,especially the Arab dance but the food was pathetic .We were told that its the same story no matter how expensive cruise you book.

Day 3

Day after ,we left for Ferrai World at Abu Dhabi .That ,buddies, is a magical world in itself.Its brilliant.Its spread over such a huge area and has so much to experience that you need to be clear before hand what all you gonna do there .

The biggest attraction of Ferrari world, "The Thing" and the Daddy of all rides is the "Fomula Rosa - World's fastest Roller coaster".Ghosh !! That scares the hell out of you but believe me,once done, you feel like you have achieved something in your life .Just watch the video here Formula Rosa and you will get to know what I am talking about.

Just after the ride I tried to play cool by showing that oh,this ride was a cake walk for me but Shittt !! My pictures with horrible expression (made out of fear ) were flashing all over the big screen fixed near the exit.A no. of my foreigner friends were laughing ,they were like hey,just look at him . I felt so embarrassed that it took me less than 20 sec to reach the other end of Ferrari world. :)

(# Tip 4- Carry your water bottles before leaving your hotel everyday, for water is relatively very expensive at most places in Dubai )

Day 4

Then came the last day, when we decided to roam around all by ourselves.

A very interesting incident happened that day.We hired a taxi, the driver switched the live commentary of cricket match between India & Pakistan ."Pakistan has just lost another wicket" said Ravi Shashtri from commentary box.Since driver looked Indian and he was speaking hindi too,so I confidently jumped and shouted saying " Wow man ,India will blast Pakistan today,what do you think ?" .."Sir, I am from Pakistan" ,he said .One minute silence followed. :) :)

Nevertheless , we enjoyed Snow world at Emirates Mall as well on our last day in Dubai, before my smile was short closed by my wife ,Nishtha with her Pierre Cardin shopping .

The Lost Chambers ,Atlantis,Palm Island- the beautiful Underwater marine world was our last stop at Dubai before we returned to Hotel and started packing for Departure .

(#Tip 5 - Do opt for The lost Chambers as that's the best and cheapest way you can enter and roam around the famous Atlantis The Palm Hotel ,yes the same where SRK's Happy New Year was shoot. Hotel, I promise you, is much better than the movie was)

Finally came the unfortunate departure day.With very heavy hearts and extreme reluctance, we left for airport and said a final adieu to the magnificent Dubai - a home to largest airport,tallest building,largest shopping mall and the most expensive Hotel in the world.
