UAE Day 2: The Dubai Mall & Desert Safari

My first night in Dubai was quite horrible. I couldn't fall asleep because some people online claimed that the hotel we were staying at had bed bugs. Yikes! As it turned out, there weren't any bed bugs,  and I could sleep peacefully for the rest of our trip.

Even though I haven't slept in two days, I didn't feel tired at all, because I was too excited to finally see Dubai. We didn't have much time to do anything special that day because we already had a desert safari booked for the afternoon, so we decided to go to The Dubai Mall for a few hours to have lunch there and do a little bit of shopping.




I really didn't expect the mall to be so huge! We got lost a couple of times in there and it probably took us about 45 minutes just to find the food court, haha. We first had lunch at Nordsee and then took a quick look at some of the shops, the aquarium, the fountain, and the ice rink. Yes, they have an aquarium and an ice rink in the middle of the mall! :O







As I have mentioned before, the afternoon was reserved for the desert safari. This was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. I had so much fun! We first went on a crazy ride through the desert and then settled at one of the desert camps where we watched some performances, ate traditional arab food, smoked shisha and got ''tattooed'' by Henna Lady.
