When Mezba and Haleem wrote about their recent adventures in Italy – particularly the Gondola ride in Venice – I thought, “Hey, we have that here in Dubai!” Of course it’s not like Venice, but it’s a unique and beautiful experience, nevertheless. Credit to the following gorgeous pictures goes to my husband, who rarely holds the camera. But when he does, he takes better pictures than me.
Madinat Jumeirah - which translates into the 'City of Jumeirah' - is one of the most beautiful resorts in Dubai.
The abra ride costs 50 dirhams, and takes you around Madinat Jumeirah, a ride that takes about 20 minutes.
Dining here is highly recommended, but very expensive.
When you check into the hotel, you get complimentary fresh fruit, cold towels and ice lollies - to help you cool down.
I love how they recreated the entire resort!
There is also a souk - or traditional market - nearby. But pictures of that will be on another post.
Oh, and of course, you get to see the Burj al Arab up close.
