Dubai, just sand and skyscrapers

During our trip to Australia we had an stopover in Dubai. We were just curious about visiting our first Arab country so we planned well the journey to maximize the visit.

In the morning we made a city tour visiting the most famous buildings, beaches and suburbs. It was then when we realized the most different thing between Dubai and the cities we had visited before, and that was the absence of a history. It’s not that it hasn’t a history, but they have covered it with huge luxury buildings so week that now it’s very difficult to find it. In summary, the city of Dubai is just a lot of asphalt in the middle of the dessert.

So the most interesting part of the tour was in the afternoon when we went out the skyscrapers, malls and luxury hotels area to explore de real dessert.

Going across the dunes in a 4×4, we felt dizzy and exited at the same time. It was fun and strange and it finished with a dinner in a camp while the locals made some folkloric dances.

Not to repeat… one time is enough for Dubai, but interesting to remember!
