Round The World and other travels

A frequent flyer's collection of trip diaries

December 2010: Dubai

A 24-hour stopover en route to Muscat allowed me the opportunity to reacquaint myself with what has become, in a relatively short time span, a familiar destination. Based at the Hilton Dubai Creek, and with the waterbus service available close by, I was able to spend much of the day exploring both sides of the creek area on foot. With the new metro open, I also went further afield in the late afternoon to take a look around one of the malls; this is no longer a destination where the visitor is dependent on taxis. The glorious weather confirmed that, on my fourth visit, I had at last found the perfect time of year to be here.

Reason for visit: stopover en route to Muscat.

Base: Hilton Dubai Creek
