Recreational Trip to UAE

Filed under: Uncategorized — Sheeraz @ 8:01 pm

Traveling has always been charming in everyones life. One learns a lot while interacting with people of different culture, cast and region. Luckily, we successfully planned out our trip to UAE along with few office colleagues. Its a not a easy job to get long (15 days) leaves approved by office.

Our excitement started while we were boarding through international departure, since it was first time for all of us while traveling out of country. After landing at Dubai International Airport, we went through immigration process in a long queue and then we were done :). Weather was really awesome and it was raining over there which triggered our excitement level to threshold level :p.

Next day, we got the NOL cards from near by Metro Station. You just need to check in at the metro station with NOL card and then you can get inside the train. These are the fastest trains and waiting time for each train is 8 mins at max. You get off the train at destined station and check out. These trains work automatically without any operator. These same cards are used in any public transport at Dubai and there is no need for conductor in bus. Its the best innovation of Roads and Transport Service (RTA) at Dubai I have witnessed.

Jumerah Beach – the most exciting place for all the tourists, usually you can find celebrities over there and we also visited Wild Wadi the same day.

Dubai Mall – Fountain Dance (DSF Activity) and Waterfall restaurant. This is the largest shopping mall in Dubai.

Global Village – Almost every country has been given some region to represent their customs, those include Iran, Turkey, UAE, Pakistan, Inda, Africa, China, etc. Witnessed the stage performance of different countries. Indian Dancing show was the most attraction over there.

Abrah, Bur Dubai – It was just like Manora, Karachi. You reach at Abrah get in the Boat and that takes you at Bur Dubai. We saw different DSF activities over there. Different countries had representation over there just like Global village. Mostly these were poor countries. There was Meena Bazar just like Light House we have in Karachi πŸ™‚


DSCN0696Mall of Emirates – Ski Dubai. The most favourite place for all of us. Ski Dubai is an artificial snow region where temperature is around -5C. Costumes is provided by management. We did witnessed real penguins and also had different activities including Snow Ball Rolling, Sliding, Chair Lift, etc.

Desert Safari – Dune Bashing, Camel Riding, Bar B Q Dinner, Belly Dance Show, Sand Ski, etc.

Along with this, we visited Ibn-e-Batoota Mall, Sharjaah (It had huge buildings), Dubai Festival City, Al – Rigga Street – Juice World, Deirra City Centre.


DSCN0463If you intend to visit dubai, you must visit these places and also must try Fillis Tea, Baskin Robbins Ice Cream and Juice World (Al-Rigga Street).

Every thing is well organised and systematic there. You won’t find any kind of hindrance while traveling to strange place. The people are very cooperative specially when you find person of your country. This trip has given a lot of memories in my self.

I would definitely visit this place again may be in 2020 Inshallah πŸ™‚
