The rental place for ATV rides on the dunes.
Our stay at Dubai was only for 2 nights and 3 days. Being typical Singaporeans, and thankfully, having wonderful hosts like the Lims, we maximised our time by rushing from one spot to another.
Our next stop was the older city area of Dubai.
After parking at one of the very narrow roads (and I understand, parking is extremely costly - more so than Singapore), we made our way to the docks. We took one of these boats across Dubai Creek to our lunch venue.
See the seagulls hovering over the boat? There are like gazillion flocks of them and it's quite a sight to see them drift with the air currents and scoop in and out like aerial experts to catch food pieces thrown to them by sea farers or passengers. It's also quite fun fool them with imaginary catch. Haha.
That's all of us while waiting for our dishes to arrive. From the left - Mona, David, their youngest, Vince, Caren, Danny, who works for an organisation which helps Singaporeans set up buisnesses in Dubai (big time!) and yours truly.
The mint tea to wet our appetite. Quite an intricate design for a pot I must say and it comes with a leather weaved pouch of sorts to cover the spout. The tea was VERY SWEET and strong with the delicious minty taste. I understand that that's the way the locals like it. I was acutally quite famished by then. I believe the time was like 3-4pm in the afternoon.
Our first authentic Middle Eastern meal!
I'll continue with more pictures later.
