Jacinta Mc Glynn (Senior Reporter Travelbiz) reports from the futuristic city of Dubai where the skyline seems to change every moment! Dubai is definitely Gotham City – hard hat heaven! This city has bus stops with A/C and WiFi, so beat that, if you can! We leave the luxurious Palazzo Versace and head to another 5* beauty – Steigenberger Hotel in Downtown Dubai. Peter Friedrich (TravelCube) organised another fab evening and sent us up the Creek – literally! We had a cruise in Deira (old Dubai) on a traditional Dhow with dinner and floor show. Although the sailing vessel ran short of tonic water (mixer for non-alcoholic beverages, you understand), a motor boat was dispatched to fetch extra supplies. As you do. So, the Dhow was a wow!


A further adventure was in store with a trip to Lost Chambers of Atlantis. I defy any kid of any age not to be transported into realms of ecstasy with the amazing aquariums and incredible array of fish and sea creatures here. Jacques Cousteau, eat your heart out. I believe Onur Gul (Turkish Airlines), Peter Friedrich (TravelCube) and Carol Anne O’Neill (Worldchoice) found Nemo! Come and be a child again and experience an underwater world with magical marine life – you can almost touch the giant manta rays and reef sharks. Truly, Dubai is a world apart. Lunch was kindly hosted by Worldchoice then we headed back to the city to embark upon a desert jeep safari. When will this excitement end?
