Dubai Diaries (II)

Hello People,

Thank you so very much for showering in so much love on my last post. I am back as promised,with rest of my itinerary of the trip. Day 2 was equally tiring and I got to experience both – the sand dunes as well as the calm white sand beach of Dubai.

The day started with going to Zero Gravity. Zero Gravity is a beautiful place that has a private beach, a glass pool and an amazing ambiance. The entry fee is quite high (350 AED per person which comes to around Rs.6300 per person )but once you enter, it’s all worth it. The place has a beautiful glass pool that is such an amazing spot to click pictures. There is beach on the other side overlooking the beautiful Dubai Marina which is basically the beautiful Skyline of Dubai. The entry fee includes brunch and access to the pool. The brunch was amazing with more Non-Vegetarian options though, but the ambiance is literally worth the money.

What I wore?

I wore a beautiful red top from BeBe which I paired with my white shorts that I also bought from Dubai but via a friend so I do not exactly remember which store. The shorts had a pretty red rose that matched so well with the top. The sandal is from Hill Road,Bandra-Mumbai.

I also changed into a monokini for obvious reasons. I would not be posting a full picture due to privacy concerns , but it was a designer piece from Victoria’s Secret.

The next stop for the day was Desert Safari and Oh My God, it is one of the best things to do, when in Dubai. They charge around 70 AED per person (Rs.1260) which includes transit to-fro from your place to the Safari Camp, camel ride, sheesha, various performances, snacks & dinner. It was literally the cheapest thing I did in Dubai . Period. The ride to the desert is filled with huge sand dunes and the drivers are skilled as hell as they drive you through. Each Co.that you book your package through,have their own camp set in the middle of the desert. The moment you reach the camp,you are greeted with a falcon and you can relax at the camp or come out and do dirt biking and watch the sunset. Dirt biking is charged extra at 60 AED for 30 mins but it is great fun. The sunset looks breathtaking in a desert. The multi-layered sky is a treat to the naked eye.

What I wore?

Since I knew I HAD TO do dirt biking, I opted to wear jeans . Also, it gets really cold in the desert during evening so it is advisable to carry a jacket (which I did not) . I wore a cute off-shoulder pink crop top from Zara that I bought from Dubai again, and my black jeans. The headgear was also purchased at a store where the car stops on the way to the desert for tyre check.

This is all I did on Day 2. I will include Day 3 and some random facts about Dubai in my next blog. However, I will include Day 4 here.

Day 4 was a  pretty relaxed day as I went to Naif Souq , Meena Bazar and also I shopped a lot at Dubai Mall (again). NAif Souq is brilliant if you buy some cheap local handmade perfumes and also local cosmetics. I do not recommend cheap copies of high end brands but something like eyeliner,kohl is amazing there and it is very very affordable if you know how to bargain. Meena bazar has a gold Souq and is largely famous for Indian stores. I found a market near Meena Bazar and it was pretty interesting. Bought cinnamon and a couple of t-shirts for my brother.Nife+Suqe+1-1024x681naif-souq-deira-dubai-2058-800

That’s all for now folks, see you in the last piece super soon 🙂
