Dubai. The UAE. P.2

Gian Luka • 5 minutes read • May 4th, 2017
Let's continue our tour of Dubai (Dubai. The UAE. P.1 )!

As for water recreation,

Dubai

has the excellent beaches and water parks. We visited

Wild Wadi

, a water park near Burj Al Arab Jumeirah and Mina a Salam. Unfortunately, we did not take pictures. The park is notable for the fact that you do not need to climb the waterslides on your own. Almost 90% of the park is a mountain river, which will bring you to the water slide. As a result, we almost did not leave the water during the day.

You can watch the Matt Hatchard’s video:

I’ll write a separate article about the shopping malls in Dubai. Nevertheless, I can’t help but tell you about the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa.

In short, the Dubai Mall is a huge shopping center located at the foot of Burj Khalifa (the tallest building in the world) and near the Dubai Fountain. Its restaurants and cafes are at a very high level. For example, Petrossian caviar restaurant.

There’s a huge aquarium inside the mall.

It is an art waterfall inside the Dubai Mall.

There is a waterfront, a lake and an incredible fountain at one of the mall’s exits. The fountain reminded me of the Fountains of Bellagio, but this one is larger in size.

It is the singing fountain. It plays to certain music. In general, it’s cool. However, the repertoire was not always right, as for me (it’s a tribute to the culture, but the Arab songs with the fountain, to be honest, look different after Las Vegas). Although we should note that the songs are in a row: the Arab one – the world hit – the Arab one.

There are many cafes with various cuisines on the waterfront. We stopped at one of them.

Ivan Beato’s video of the fountains:

As for the

Burj Khalifa

itself, it is an incredible experience. It is an amazing building. It is two times taller than the tallest New York skyscraper. Well, here are several photos around the Burj Khalifa.

When I was watching "Star Wars," the buildings looked exactly like this in my imagination.

Dubai is the city where nothing is impossible. Artificial islands, the world’s tallest building, the fountain two times larger than the one in Las Vegas.
Well, it’s an incredible oasis in the desert. The city of the future against the background of the past. A wild mix of Lawrence of Arabia and Star Wars.
 
Slikotashfg’s general video about Dubai:

P.S. I didn’t tell you about the artificial islands in my story about Dubai. It’s because we didn’t get on them. Nevertheless, I would really like to show you several pics of this miracle I found on the Internet:
