UAE Driving Trip 2012 – Dubai

Day 3. 8 April 2012. We left Al Ain and continued the trip to Dubai. A lot of information available on Dubai so I don’t want to repeat here. In fact, we only stayed for one night. From Al Ain, we took Road E66 (Dubai – Al Ain road) and directly headed to Hard Rock Cafe Dubai at Dubai Festival Center. Arrived there exactly when the store is open. 10am. Bought the 23th HRC shot glass, then left for Betawi Cafe – rated by many as the best Indonesian restaurant in Dubai. We’re not lucky, as they’re still closed – open only after 12pm.

Decided to check-in at Metro Central Hotel & Apartment with two stops: Burj Al Arab and Palm Jumeirah (Atlantis Hotel). Our hotel is just at doorstep of one of the entrances to Dubai Internet City metro station. We parked our car at hotel and used metro to Dubai Mall. Centered around Kids interests: Kidzania, Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, and The Dubai Fountain, we left Dubai Mall around 8pm to go to Mall of the Emirates for dinner with using metro.

We left Dubai the next morning for Abu Dhabi.
