Dubai, United Arab Emirates, day 5

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, day 5

Yesterday saw a visit to the old part of Dubai, Bur Dubai. There's a Dubai Museum which we unfortunately didn't have time for to visit, this time around. What I didn't know at the time being is that Anup and me would return for a visit later that week.

The old streets of Bur Dubai with all it's small shops and Souks.

A mosque with intricate mosaic work in Bur Dubai.

Dubai Creek where we had dinner

A visit to the Dubai Mall was on the menu later in the evening and this was pretty impressive. If you want to buy something here, make sure it doesn't spring your bank!

The Dubai Mall is the world's largest shopping mall based on total area and sixth largest by gross leasable area, it is part of the 20-billion-dollar Burj Khalifa complex, and includes 1,200 shops.
The shops are all op designer shops.

We saw a water fountain show and visited the Aquarium with it's 10 million liter tank.
After that it was off to the Atlantis Hotel on the Palm Jumeirah which hosts an even bigger Aquarium. A post on the visit to the two aquariums is on my dive blog.
