Destination Dubai

In November two of my gorgeous girlies will be visiting us in the sandpit.  Most definitely an early Christmas pressie for me, and for them, a much needed break from the predictable long, dark, damp winter afternoons of England and Ireland.  So excited at the thought of welcoming such good friends to the desert, I set about drafting an itinerary which will showcase Dubai at its finest (though not very much effort is required in that regard).  A ‘bored having had almost 10 weeks off school’ daughter enquired as to what I was doing.  Excitedly I invited her to help me out with our visitors’ schedule.  By that I meant ‘I dictate, you write’.  But my eager beaver DD started chipping in her own suggestions.  See if  you can guess which are mine and which are my 7 year old DD’s:

– The Burj Khalifa observation deck

– Magic planet (the equivalent of an amusement arcade)

– Dancing fountains at Dubai Mall/Burj Khalifa

– Wild Wadi waterpark

– Evening cocktails at At.mosphere bar (122nd floor of Burj Khalifa)

– Aquaventure (another waterpark)

– Shopping – Mall of Emirates, Dubai Mall, Ibn Battuta

– Yas Island (another waterpark)

– The Vault (a bar on the 71st and 72nd floors of the world’s tallest hotel, JW Mariott Marquis)

– Al Nafoorah on the Palm (the most divine Lebanese food in gorgeous surroundings)

– Switch bowling

– Dubai Rugby 7s

– Scooting/skateboarding at Arabian Ranches skate park

– Old Dubai/The Creek

– Karting at Dubai Autodrome

– Our regular haunt…The Polo Club

– The climbing wall at HQ Adventure

– A mani and pedi (and perhaps a sneaky head/shoulder/neck massage!) at one of the many salons dotted around the Emirate

– Playnation, MCC

– Madinat Souk

– Mini Monsters

– Karama (not for the replica designer handbags mind….but for the ‘cultural’ experience)

– MOE Snowpark

– Dinner at Segreto’s

– Safa 2 park

– Afternoon tea at Burj Al Arab

Alas the only activity we agreed on was the beach…..gotta go to the beach in Dubai November….bliss
