I have so many places to go in my life. Thanks Helen for introducing this blog to me, now I look forward to cover the loveliest places in the world throughout my life.
Continuation from Part one, this is our city day tour. This is the famous Dubai Creek. Our hotel is strategically just next to it.
The hotel is the tallest building in the photo. Before crossing the creek, we went to the Gold Souk/Gold market conveniently situated just behind the hotel. Which is obviously packed with goldsmiths. There’s gold strewn anywhere and everywhere, no one will steal them. Why?
The penalty for stealing is losing both your arms. That’s why. Very discipline ppl. For the 3 days we were there, we saw 3 accidents @_@ According to Kenny, who we met up later on at night, Dubai in fact has a very high…wtf what’s with their super cars zooming around like scrap metal eh? hahaha..
We walked everywhere. Fairly easy to get around. Had lunch at a place that looks VERY similar like our mamak but the waiter is just 10000X ruder. My nan, that’s so hard and oily, you’ll get a bruise if I had throw it at you.
This is where the Sheikh used to live. His palace i suppose. Very dry and hot. The entrance fees to all the attractions are cheap. 3-5dhm only. But …. depends on yourself la, wanna go see buildings and artifacts or not.
We refuse to take the taxi that cost 20dhm once u got in, we took the local bus to Jumeirah Strip, where the rich and famous goes to relax and shop. The bus was very comfortable, because they have seats for women only. Guys get screamed at if they take the seats hahahahahah. At 1-2dhm, very comfortable to travel in. TGIF ala arabian…
You had to pay a blardy USD120 to enter…. and have hi-tea. We went to a public beach, and had to ran like mad ppl as we canot enter the *private* beach. wtf. We were running because the sun is setting!!!
Then we went to this place Souk Madinah Jumerah, wonderful atmosphere for dinner. Alot of “chio” ppl lo…cos ferry constan was playing that night at dubai.
