After a baronial breakfast at the hotel, get ready for a day full of adventure on the second day of your Dubai tour. Today we are going to date Dubai and although the tour will last for only half-day, the memories will last forever. Our English speaking guide will pick you up from your hotel and the delightful experience will begin at the most famous and iconic structure of Dubai, Burj Al Arab. Feel on top of the world (like literally) when you stare from the observation deck of this majestic building.
Move on to visit one of the most photogenic sites of Dubai, the Jumeirah Mosque. This mosque is in the rare list of mosques across Dubai where which non-Muslims are allowed. Gorge in the beauty of this place. We guarantee a lifetime won't be enough to satiate your desire. The mosque reminds of the city's medieval past with intricately detailed panels which look mesmerizing against the blue backdrop. We move on to explore the palace and residential area of Jumeirah. We will have a sneak peek at the Sheikh Saeed house in which the royal family of UAE used to stay once.
We continue our tour and our caravan reaches Al Bastakiya which is the old city area of Dubai. Let the Dubai Museum located in Al Fahidi Fort take you through sands of time into the old era of the city. Built-in 1787, the museum was an erstwhile fortress which was used to protect Dubai from invaders. Two long black canons guarding the place remind you of its bloody past. It is the oldest surviving building of Dubai.
Hungry? We bet you will be, even if you aren't already. The next place on our list is the fruits and vegetable markets of Dubai known locally as the souks. Unleash your senses here and indulge in the opulent smells and taste of exotic fruits like mangosteens, guavas, and rambutans. Don't forget the dates, the very precious and famous fruit of Dubai. Bargain hard and take home some dates and you are sure to remember Dubai when you go home and dig your teeth into that juicy date. After filling your senses (and your bags) we move on to the gold souk. It's time to get greedy folks! The gold souk happens to be one of the oldest markets in the entire emirates. Revel yourself in the sparkle of gold, silver, platinum and yes a woman's best friend "diamonds".
Ah! What an Exhilarating day it was. Tired? No worries you can go to the hotel, take a shower and just cuddle up into your soft mattress. For those nocturnal animals, we leave you to explore the city's famous shopping malls yourself.
Get back to the hotel for an overnight stay in Dubai.
