Travellers' pick: Dubai Fountain show

It was about 9,30pm when I made my way to the Dubai mall. I was worrying about the time for the last metro when a new friend from the Safari tour offered to accompany me and send me back to the airport after the show! How nice.  

We ordered a table in a coffee house and stayed for 2 shows. Both are unique: the lights and water danced to 2 different set of music, and it was marvellous. Totally live up the name of the first Travellers’ choice in Tripadvisor. Anyone travelling to Dubai, I won’t think twice to recommend the fountain to them. I was here for the Magic, and so will you!

Dubai: Desert Safari

Dubai has just too much to offer. There are so many things you can do in Dubai, but for the sake of 2 big fat ticks on my bucket list, I decided to set my foot on the desert. So: Desert, tick; Camel riding, double tick.
I joined the Desert Safari recommended by a friend. I would not say that it’s the best choice as there were many other companies running the same activity out there.    

The driver came pick me up from the Dubai mall upon request, and off we go. The driver who pick me up was nice and funny, and we had an interesting chat about the city and the camp.   


FlyDubai started operating flight directly from Volgograd to Dubai from year 2013. I was planning to try this flight someday later but decided to move the plan forward when I found cheaper air tickets on Skyscanner last month.
