Edmund hired a private van with a driver to bring us to some of the important landmarks in Dubai.
The guy picked us up from the hotel at 2 pm and drove us around. We didn’t finish what Edmund signed for because we got tired from the heat. The driver wondered why we no longer wanted to get off at the marina and continue with the self-guided tour. He insisted that it was a nice place pero tired na talaga kami.
We saw a little bit of Dubai happy na kami, okay na yun. Two senior citizens needed to go back to the hotel and take a nap. We got drained from the heat and traffic.
We saw the Jumeirah Mosque, La Mer Beach, Al Arab, Spice Market, and Burj Khalifa from afar.
We pretty much covered the majority of the important sites including Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa, Spice Market, Atlantis, etc.
We rested for a while in our room and at around 6 pm we walked to The Dubai Mall. We saw the full view of Burj Khalifa on our way to the mall.
We also found out that Filipinos rule the employment market in Dubai. This country loves Filipinos. They are impressed with our kababayans’ intelligence, hard work, dedication, and trustworthiness, and we speak better English than the others. We went to LM foreign exchange shop near the mall’s entrance, lahat sila dun ay Filipin, si Maricar, Princess, and Precious.
Two people had told me in the past that the Dubai Fountain rivals that of Bellagio’s in Las Vegas. I have seen the one in Las Vegas many times and I always enjoyed it every single time. Dubai’s impressive but I still vote Bellagio’s #1. I haven’t seen Okada Manila’s fountain. Maganda rin daw.
