The family have been here for close to six months now and we have only left the Dubai Emirate twice, once for the zoo at Al Ain, and the other was to the Malaysian Island Escapade at Umm Al Quwain. So, since we had not been to the capital of the UAE yet, we decided to take a drive down.
Its around 150km from Dubai, around a two hour trip taking into account the traffic and all. One thing for sure, AD looks a lot greener than Dubai. Linda was not too keen on it as there did not appear to be too many shopping malls around.
We did stop by Dubai Mall on the way to AD to visit the Gucci sale. It was 50% off the whole shop, but 50% of a large number is still a large number!
The twins took the opportunity to visit the largest indoor aquarium in the world!
Other than the aquarium, Dubai Mall also has some pretty nice murals and sofa that is much nicer than what we can afford at home!
