Dubai Day 2 (12 Mar 11) – An Uneventful Day

Roaming Around in Dubai

Today is a rather uneventful day. I headed to pay for the overnight desert camping trip scheduled for tomorrow. However I was told they did not have my booking and the tour was fully booked! What a stuff up! When I demanded to speak to the superior of the booking agent, awhile later I was told that they could arranged another 2 spots for me. I was thinking imagine if I hadn’t demanded, they would have just leave it as it is. This shows how much customer service they emphasize on. I roamed about the Mall of Emirates for the next 2 hours before heading over to the airport to pick up my friend who would be joining me for this phase of my journey.

After meeting up with my friend, and settling him in to hotel, I brought him to the Mall of Emirates to change some local currency. Our plan for today was to head over to Burj Al Arab for high tea. Once we were at the security gate, I realised that I have mixed up the timing. We were 2 hour late and we missed the high tea. However the staff was kind enough to rebook our high tea session to another date without penalising us. So our plan worked out fine and we are still going for high tea in the finest hotel in Dubai afterall. We then went to Dubai Mall to spend the rest of our day there. As my friend had a long flight, we wanted to take the day easy.

After dinner we went to watch the fountain show from ground zero. I had watched it from the tower yesterday. The show was indeed different from here, at the ground floor, I can see clearly how the water fountain danced to the rhythm of the music, while from the top, I can only see circles lighting up. After the fountain show, we went for a movie and then headed back to the hotel to rest for the night.
