Quick stop over in between continents.
I know lots of people who love this place, but i have to say we have limited excitement for it. Built in the middle of the desert, Dubai is very hot, manicured, clean with no smell and everything has gold hanging from it to provide a sense of opulence. It is massively overpriced with no atmosphere or cultural attractions to speak of.. It’s all about retail therapy, and the Mall is a similar size to a small planet. Every Shop is over staffed so they can mug you as you cross the threshold.
Now, it’s not all bad, and credit where credit is due. Massive shout out to the Premier Inn Dubai (Airport) and all its staff. What a wonderful hotel with delightful staff, reasonable pricing, pool, gym smiles, early check in, late check out, more smiles. You truly made Dubai a better place for us. There is said it!
Oh and fountains
