Day 30 and 31 in Dubai ….

We  arrived in Dubai at 11am on the Saturday, we took a shuttle to a shopping mall which was pretty good, we  had expected to be able to walk to the city centre, Dubai Mall & Burg Khalifa, but is was stifling hot so went back to the wharf & got on the Hop on Hop off bus, we find these the best way to explore a new area.  Dubai is much larger than you expect, the distanced further than you could walk or ride, & the whole city is just ‘ wow ‘ cannot believe it … Our first stop was the huge Dubai Mall, just spectacular, we did a city tour & got back to the Mall & watched the water spectacular in front of the Burg Khalifa, pretty good. Then back to the ship to rest for the next day…  Sunday, got on the first H on H off bus at 8.30 & did the beach / coastal route, which took in the man  made The Palms area, the area you can see from space as a palm tree !!  You have to see this to believe it, toured around the Atlantis resort, then did 2 more bus trips, the entire Palms area & then the Marina precinct….we then got dropped back at Dubai Mall as this is the centre drop off point, looked around before getting the last shuttle back to the ship. All in all a busy sight seeing day…
