My Dubai Takeover

My family and I took a trip to Dubai. We took an Emirates flight. When we got off the plane, I touched the window and said, “It’s hot!” We spent the first day at the beach and pool. We stayed at the Sofitel Palm Resort and it is very nice.

The next day, we spent 12 hours at the Dubai Mall. It is the biggest mall in the world. There are over 1,200 stores. We saw the dancing fountain and Burj Khalifa which is the tallest building in the world. We were on the 125th floor and saw the sunset over the entire city of Dubai. The Dubai Aquarium is also in the Dubai Mall and we visited there and saw a great white shark, a hammerhead shark and a crocodile feeding. We ended our visit with dinner at one of my favorite American restaurants, Texas Roadhouse.

We also visited Old Dubai. I saw the biggest and heaviest ring in the world at the Gold Souk. The shop owners were begging us all day to go into their shops. We took an abra (an old wooden boat) across the creek. I couldn’t wait to get back to the pool and beach at the hotel.

One evening, we went on a desert safari. We went dune bashing in the desert sand, saw a fire show and rode a camel.

Our last day in Dubai was my dad’s birthday. We ate brunch with my mom’s friend from college and her husband, then we spent the rest of the day and night at the pool and beach.

Dubai has been my favorite trip so far and I really didn’t want to leave.

Bye bye,
