Time to leave! It’s Sunday 31st of August 2014 and I am waiting for my Emirates flight EK 86 to Dubai. Little bit excited now for sure – I did the same route already several times before, but this time something is different. I will not return within 2-3 weeks, my plan is rather staying a couple of months abroad from Switzerland.

6:20AM arrived in Dubai and the outside temparure climbed already on more than 31C! HOT HOT HOT! That’s also one of the main thing you have to say about Dubai! It’s just hot outside and as soon as you enter a mall you are freezing. Welcome to VAE!

Dubai’s Airport is linked by Metro (there are 2 lines in Dubai) with convenient and cheap connections (a single trip is staring at AED 4.50 and you end up at AED16 for a daily ticket which was for myself the best choice).

8AM I arrived at my hotel (Grand Landmark) and after an hour I had already the pleasure to check in without any further fees and got a free upgrade to a Junior Suite! GREAT, the girl behind the reception must like me :-D

My first day I spent visiting all the famous malls in Dubai including Mall of Emirates, Dubai Mall (my favourite) and finished my day with a visit of the Burj Khalifa at the top (highest building on our planet (September14).

In my opinion, the best time to visit Burj Khalifa is in the late afternoon because you get the chance to enjoy a great view during day-, sunset- and night time (check sunset times for Dubai before online) and reserve your ticket (AED 125)  as early as possible  if you wish to visit Burj Khalifa at that time. For the same day you have to purchase the fast track entry admission for about AED 300. Too much!  It’s very demanded during sunset times, so you have been warned.

As follows you will find my favourites pics from Dubai:
