The second day in Dubai was more planed and much better for our camera life. We had brunch and a nice boat trip plus an amazing evening visit at the White Mosque in Abu Dhabi.
Today there would be the only planed trip to the White Mosque in the evening hours, right for the sunset. We were looking very much forward to it.
But first there was a whole day to fill until the late afternoon. And we decided on a boat-trip around famous ‘The Palm’. We took the Metro to Dubai Marina Mall from where the boat tour would start.
The mall is nice, very big, though the Dubai Mall is the biggest one, even in the world. We would find out the last day. In the Marina Mall we had a quick lunch, and then we walked a little around on the Marina Promenade waiting for our boat. It was a regular going pedestrian ferry which would stop only once, I think at Jumeirah, and then have the end-point at Al Ghubaiba Marine Transport Station, just a 20 Minutes walk from hour hotel.
The ferry was nearly empty, and we had both had a window seat (take a seat on the right to see the skyline of Dubai). Unfortunately it was too hazy to take any good pictures but it was nice to see the city from off the shore. The stop was none as there was no one waiting and no one wanted to get off the boat.
The view of the famous Atlantis Hotel on ‘The Palm’ was nice but didn’t impress me too much.
When we left the boat we walked back through the Old Souk which was much more pleasant than the day before due to fewer people trying to sell us something.
After a short rest in the hotel it was time for the evening tour. We were lucky that they came to pick us up from the hotel. But that is another article …
