Anna and Jenna hit Dubai


24 April 2018

Our last night ❤ Chose a beautiful Thai restaurant at The Palace hotel! So fancy, Rolls Royce, Bentley's and super cars outside. Cocktails on the terrace waiting for our table. Met Mustafa who offered to buy our drinks and fly us back out to Dubai next time we want to come, we politely declined. Dimsum, Pad Thai and spicy beef for dinner on the terrace with a view of the fountains. Perfect end to our trip.
Our last full day and the hottest yet 36°c. Salads and ice cream by the pool an finishing our books. Told off in reception for what we were wearing and quickly returned to the rooftop. Jumpsuits on, hair curled and off to dinner. Walked through the huge Dubai Mall with every shop you can imagine, lots of fairy lights and an aquarium. Stood and watched the fountain light show under the Burj Khalifa. Then the search for our chosen restaurant.

A trip to the supermarket to get some fruit before making a delicious healthy breakfast on the rooftop next to our pool. A half day of tanning and swimming. Picked up from our hotel and headed out to the Desert, such a change from the city. Some dune bashing in the 4x4 (luckily before we ate!) Then some photo opportunities and a camel ride (not my favourite part!) A belly dancing show, some tradition dancing, a buffet and the fire show! All for £18 bargain. Sitting on lovely pillows on the sand, a totally different and lovely evening.

A day of hanging around the cool gang at Nasimi Beach Bar at Atlantis the Palm. Great music, cocktails and sun with a view. Rush hour traffic back to the hotel but an hour long taxi ride only cost £20 and we managed a nap. Dinner at Sheraton Dubai Creek, Italian food and wine with a view. Lovely day.

A day at the rooftop pool, a light 31°c with the water the same temp! Tanning, reading and disappointment at the lack of alcohol at the bar and they ran out of strawberries for a smoothie!! Leisurely evening getting ready, even ironed my dress and we headed out. Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht club 👌 cocktails at Cielo then dinner by the creek, margaritas, sea bass, salmon and a great th!

Arrived to our hotel, lots of confusing questions at the desk but a comfy bed and we actually unpacked. A little walk to a street cafe for some Arabic chicken, no margaritas though 😔 Bed ready for our first day in the sunshine ☀️👙
