FOOL YOU., THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME,
BUT TRAVELING IS FUN.
When using frequent flyer miles, it is always good to try and get as much bang as possible for your air mile buck. With that in mind, after visiting my Mum in the UK, I decided to stopover in Dubai on my way back to Singapore.
I have never been to the UAE before, it, and Dubai in particular, has been on my bucket list of places to visit for a while. I have some awesome friends who live there, so it was a great opportunity to catch up with them, check out their place, and the mighty Burj Khalifa!
Outside the Mall is the waterfront promenade and the amazing water fountains, known as the Dubai Water Fountain. These fountains are choreographed to music, and are quite a sight to behold, whether the performance is a daytime or night time one. Some facts from the Dubai Water Fountain website.
STANDING TALL - THE MIGHTY BURJ KHALIFA,
We spent some time on Jumeirah Beach. It was fun to watch the kite surfers do their thing. We even stayed on one day to watch the sun go down. In the far distance in the sunset photo, you can see the yacht belonging to the ruler of Dubai, His Highness, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Yes that is his yacht, not a cruise ship!! (Probably not that much difference actually!)
