Restaurants, waterparks and shopping in Dubai..... [1] [2] [3]

I made sure I put a high factor on as I normally burn on the first day – so this break I would be sensible and create an even tan .  I swear by my Chanel sunnies as well I never take them off when I’m away.  I would rather have panda eyes than get wrinkles!

We chilled out the rest of the day and it felt great – just getting away from working in the City was lovely I needed the break desperately!

Later that evening we got ready to go out to eat at one of the restaurants in the Al Mooraj I fancied seafood so we decided on the The Waterside Seafood Restaurant and Terrace  .  I put on my Versace pants and a nice white figure hugging top and made my face up au natural and off we went.
The service was superb and the food delicious we had crab and mussels to start and then lobster for a main course it was magnificent! I would highly recommend going there again.  Later after a few drinks we went over to the British themed bar The Double Decker bar. The was a nice atmosphere in the bar with mainly English speaking people there having a good time.

During our stay the people in Dubai were taking part in Ramadam – this is a religious observance, during this month fasting takes place during daylight hours.  Every evening when the sun goes down  you can hear the chimes of the mosque and the sound of chanting.  This sound is to remind the men to go to the mosque to pray after prayer they are allowed to each as much as they like.

During the holiday we went to the local beaches, my favorite was Jumeirah..it has beautiful golden sands and lovely clear sea and from the beach you can see the world famous Burj Al Arab Hotel.  This hotel stunning architecture dominates the coastline just like a billowing sail.  This hotel is the only 7 star hotel in the world I would say the cheapest room per night is about a grand! It is truly stunning!

Just down the road is Wild Wadi Waterpark we had a brilliant time here it’s well worth the #35 day pass each .  It has around 30 adrenalin pumping rides  such as the Jumeirah Sceirah ( a speed slide) you have to walk up lots of steps as the slide is 33 meters in height! Once you get to the top you can hurtle up to 80mph down to the bottom of the slide ..its super fast!  Another favorite ride is flowriders – it’s the ultimate surf experience, it’s great watching the professional’s surf and hilarious watching the novices have a go!  The place closes at 7pm, you don’t have to worry about carrying money as they have a cashless system (you wear a waterproof wristband that stores electronic credits) they have a couple of takeaway restaurants and a souvenir shop. I noticed they sold lovely bikinis in there.  There are hundreds of sun loungers about the place so if you want to relax and lay down you can do so very easily.

Dubai is a great place to shop. BurJuman Centre or Emirates Tower Boulevard are both good malls for those in search of designer clothing, handbags and sunglasses for example, or the Jumeirah Centre offers shoppers discounted designer wear and it can be an excellent place to bag a bargain or two that will make your friends quite jealous!

I would say the most popular shopping mall in Dubai is Deira City Centre.  It is centrally located and is home to around 280 outlets.  All the big name retail and restaurant brands are here and the complex also houses a massive cinema and entertainment centre so it’s a great place for all the family who want an entertainment packed day out.

The whole holiday was a lovely experience _ I would definitely go again.  We missed our plane back, we were only half an hour late but the airport staff are really strict and they wouldn’t allow us on the plane.. We had to stay another day …what a shame!
