The Burj al-Arab (Arabic: برج العرب, Tower of the Arabs) is a luxury hotel located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is the fourth tallest hotel in the world. Burj Al Arab stands on an artificial island 280 m (920 ft) from Jumeirah beach and is connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge. The shape of the structure is designed to mimic the sail of a ship.
Can you spot Burj Al Arab?
Stunningly beautiful view from both land and sea.
The sea is just beautiful under the sun
Once completed it will be taller than the current world’s tallest Ferris wheel, the 167.6 m (550 ft)High Roller, which opened in Las Vegas in March 2014. To give you an idea of how tall that actually is,210 metresis roughly a quarter of the height of the massive Burj Khalifa
Another iconic place not to miss if you ever visit Dubai.
Burj Khalifa. It is the World’s tallest Tower. It is a 828-meter skyscraper with viewing deck, restaurant, hotel and offices.
It is next to Dubai mall and Dubai dancing fountain. To be honest when I first saw it from afar I thought it was over rated and the hype over it was a bit too much but as we went near and in it all that changed. I couldn’t believe I was in front of it and got excited and also shattered at the end of a long day in the heat 😆. Despite all the walking, I loved it and enjoyed it. It was a beautiful experience and it is not everyday that you get to live like a tourist lol. As a tourist enjoy as much as you are able to physically and financially of course (my husband’s moto) 😁. Alhamdulillah for all the blessings in our lives.
Lands End is one of Britain’s most famous landmarks. Whether you just want to see spectacular coastal views or walk the cliff tops to see how the Land meets the sea, you will find a moment of serenity. Enjoy the gushing waves hitting the cliffs causing it to erode slowly and all your eyes could see is shimmering blue watet under bright blue skies. It is a place to visit.
How can one not be awe struck by such perfect and magnificent beauty. And even more so of the one who created it SubhanAllah. Allah Al Khaliq – Allah the Creator
If you ever visit Dubai the dancing fountain is a must visit. Captivating water dance. Dubai Fountain is the world’s tallest performing fountain. At over 900 ft in length – equivalent to over two football pitches – The Dubai Fountain is situated on the 30-acre Burj Lake and performs to a selection of different melodies. The fountain has a unique design comprising five circles of varying sizes and two arcs, and features powerful water nozzles that shoot water up to impressive heights.
Sea sides and mountains are some of the cravings my mind encounters at times in respect to nature. Hence we went to fulfil this mountain filled dream whilst being almost 6 months pregnant. I guess one of my pregnancy cravings, trust me I am getting this often during this second pregnancy. Just the other day I was craving to be in Dubai lol😂.
As we emerged into Snowdonia with breathtakingly spectacular views of the sea to our right and mountains on the left and in front of us as far as the eye can see.
One thing crossed my mind, there can only be one supreme being behind these magnificent creation SubhanAllah.
Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, and the ships which sail through the sea with that which is of use to mankind, and the water (rain) which Allah sends down from the sky and makes the earth alive therewith after its death, and the moving (living) creatures of all kinds that He has scattered therein, and in the veering of winds and clouds which are held between the sky and the earth, are indeed Ayat (proofs, evidences, signs, etc.) for people of understanding.
Below is a picture of Zip World, Penrhyn Quarry, Bethesda
Exhilarating zip ride soaring 500ft above the vivid blue of the quarry lake at 100 miles. It is the longest and fastest zip wire in the world. I didn’t go on it obviously but watching people go on it brought shivers down my spine. I was praying they all reach the other end safely. 😉
Pictures don’t do justice to nature’s beauty like the naked eye.
This is a beautiful lake which can be seen ones you reach the peak of mount Snowdon via steam train. Beautiful view but freezing weather and breathlessness due to high altitude, had it been summer time, it may have been slightly bearable, with clear blue skies and more breathtakingly beautiful views.
Regardless of whether you are feeling adventurous or not, you must not miss the Desert Safari. Absolutely brilliant, adventurous, thrilling and fun experience.
You will enjoy dune bashing, it is a very rough ride in the desert, dinner and entertainment. I must admit though I only enjoyed safari itself due to entertainments having music and after dinner they had belly dancing, which of course we didn’t stay for lol. You can choose to leave early straight after dinner or stay in the tent without watching the entertainment.
If you ever visit Dubai don’t miss this place out, especially if you have kids,they would love it so much and wouldn’t want to leave, a bit like being in a fairy tale world. Its been put together with over one million energh saving LED lights.
Tickets are reasonably priced and well worth it, you get more than what you paid for unlike here 😉. Lots to see I got so tired and couldn’t cover the entire place. Unfortunately, most of the outdoor tourist attractions are only open during Dubai winter season, its still hot during the day time but it is their winter lol. I said to my husband Dubai winter is like our British summer 🤣 .
Ice park is another section within Garden Glow
Lovely, cute glowing Sheap
My daughtet is fascinated about Dinosaurs and I don’t even know how she was introduced to it in the first place. Anyhow she loved the almost realistic dinos ( not that we’ve seen a real one ever lol)
