UAE Day 3: Dubai

Our third day in the UAE was spent in Dubai. We saw A LOT of things. We were pretty much jumping from one attraction to another all day long. I’ll just let the photos (and the captions) speak for themselves this time. 🙂

Dubai Gold Souk

Lots of bling bling.

Spice Souk

These are not rocks. It’s chocolate! 😀

Water Taxi a.k.a. Abra

Can you guess what I bought there?

This is how they water plants in Dubai.

Jumeirah Beach <3
Burj Al Arab

Apartment Buildings on the Palm Island
Atlantis Hotel

Mall of Emirates

Arab Party Women and a Funny Man from Our Tour Group

Ski Dubai. Inside the mall. Yup…
Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world. It’s gorgeous!
Time for dinner!
The yummiest calamari I’ve ever eaten.

Burj Khalifa at night.

I finally tried some cupcakes from the famous Magnolia Bakery!

    Sandra!!!!! To say this post excitements me is an understatement and I really mean that – My bf and I are stopping off in Dubai for a week on the way home from Europe and I could not be more excited but these pictures have excited me more!!!!! We're actually staying at the Atlantis hotel 🙂 But we want to go atop that building like you have (the worlds biggest). I simply can't wait now. They say jewllery over there is really cheap! p.s So I got my coral sponge exfoliate last week that I bought after I saw it reviewed on your blog 🙂 Ive used it for about 3 days and so far so good 🙂 How have u found it?Anna xo

    Have fun in Dubai! You're gonna love it! And you really do have to stop at Burj Khalifa. It's one of my favorite places in Dubai. You even have the amazing Dubai Mall next to it and the fountains that start working in the afternoon/evening. They're a must see! 🙂 Yes, jewelry there is much cheaper. Especially gold at the gold souk. I'm glad that you decided to try out the sponge. To be honest, I haven't been using it for a while now because I forgot to take it with me on my trip, but I'm back on track now. I'll be using it for two weeks now and then make a review. But so far so good. I haven't noticed any major improvements regarding my spots, dry patches and blackheads, but as I have said, I haven't been using it a lot so I can't expect my skin to transform magically after just a few uses. But I do have to say that it makes my skin super soft after I use it!
