Pros: many shopping places
I've just left Dubai here in the U.A.E. and find that there is much
more to do than meets the eye. Prices are medium, we get 3.67 durhams
to 1 US dollar and this made taxi trips somewhat easier. We went
to just about every mall there, including the largest Citi Center
and Wafi City. We also visited the Gold Souk and the Electronics
Souk where we found very good deals on gold necklaces and bracelets,
most of them were to goddy but we found some that fit what we were
looking for. As for me Im not one to wander around in the hot sun
and shop all day, I stayed near the pool at the Dubai Marine Beach
Resort, it is expensive in comparison to others but well worth it.
At night came the clubs and discotechs, for this we ended up having
to go to the hotel's for there they had there own clubs inside.
We went to York International first, upstairs on the third floor
was a bar with pool tables and a band set up with a dance floor
and yes there was the usual uhmmm... girls there waiting for there
next customer. Ahhh the russian women, very good, but dont get fooled
be giving what they ask of DHS400 u can almost certain bring them
to 300 if not lower. The second night we went to the infamous Astoria
Hotel with its two clubs, one downstairs called T.G.I. Thursdays
and upstairs called Poncho Villas. We stayed at Poncho Villas where
most people were, loud hip-hop music and good bar service. I hated
it that I payed DHS30-35 for a shot and 1 beer "Corona"
was DHS18. They have a waterpark some friends went to also in Dubai
on the road to Jebel Ali near the Hard Rock Cafe *excellent food*
I hear the waterpark is pretty fun, the name is Wadi Wadi Waterpark.
We also went to Planet Hollywood, kinda lame becasue it was dead
and it wasnt really up-kept on I thought. No enthusiasm at all.
We were ported in Port Rashid this time, the russian cruise terminal.
Now we are headed for Goa, India.
