Desert Safari, Dubai

Since Dubai itself is a desert I could not have visited without going on a desert safari and riding a camel.

The safari was a short drive from downtown Dubai and is a very popular attraction. Unfortunately, I was drained from the heat and sand so opt not to go sand duning but nonetheless it was well worth it.

The experience was great and definitely one of my travel highlights. The camel was pleasant and seemed to take people pretty well.

Looking forward to doing an Arabian night safari on my next trip.

Burj Khalifa

The Burj Khalifa has been the world’s tallest building since 2010. It is a residential building located in Downtown Dubai and holds numerous height records. IMG_0065_2

The building is so tall that it is very difficult to get pictures of it in its entirety. Even though I tried to take as many pictures as possible I was trying to observe and really soak in the moment.

The fountain and marina surrounding the building are absolutely gorgeous and picturesque. It is really impressive that most of these features are artificial and man-made.

The building can be seen from nearly all parts of the city.

I regret not being able to the observation deck to enjoy being in the world’s tallest building and enjoy the views but next time I guess.
