Dubai Series: My Experience

Hi everyone,
As you can see by the (many) pictures above, today's post is going to be a little experience post about my recent trip to Dubai. I hope you have enjoyed the pictures above, I took lots more, but these are my favorite, if you have any questions about the pictures or Dubai in general comment them on this post or email me at and I will reply as soon as I can. This is going to be very brief as I don't want this to be a super long post but I will try to cover as much as possible.

Firstly, I just want to say, we went to Dubai to celebrate my brothers 21st birthday so it was a family holiday. I went with my mum, dad, brother, brothers girlfriend and my granddad. Dubai was honestly one of the best holidays ever! I had so much fun and I can't wait to go back. I shared a room with my granddad, we had a queen size bed each and a huge room.

I am going to break down certain things I did and go into a bit more detail.

Atlantis Hotel
The Atlantis Hotel was so beautiful. Even each detail was to perfection. It was probably the best hotel I had ever stayed in. My room had an amazing view. Every afternoon they would come in and clean and make the beds. The staff their were so lovely and it was just a great experience. One of my favorite things, was the lobby (picture 3) as it was just suited the whole concept of the Atlantis. Let me know if you want a hotel room tour, of the room me and my granddad shared.

The Lost Chambers Aquarium
Even though this is in the Atlantis Hotel, I think it deserves it's own section. Again, I might do a separate post on all the pictures I took of the different creatures in the aquarium. Anyway, it was utterly stunning. They had so many different tanks/sections with all different creatures. My favorite were probably the white alligators, stingrays, sharks or the fish. You probably must think I covered all the creatures, saying they were all my favorite, but there were so many different creatures there, that I had never heard of. Images 2 and 4 are an example of things you might find in the aquarium. It was just such a lovely experience and it was truly beautiful.

Atlantis Water park
This was obviously not in the hotel but was on the same land (if that makes sense). To get from the hotel to the water park you just had to wait no more then five minutes for these carts to come and pick you up. I am a massive ride fan so I went on lots of these rides. Honestly, they do the best family rides. Even if you are not a ride fan, there is something for everyone. The lazy river was super fun. If you have been to a water park before you know you have them rides in huge plastic hoops (they are actually called inner tubes, which I didn't know) but in the Atlantis water park you didn't have to carry them up endless stairs. You just had to sit in them and you went up an flat escalator type thing which was so convenient and amazing. 

Burj Khalifa
In case you didn't know, the Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world. It is joint up to the biggest shopping mall in the world but I didn't manage to take any pictures (never mind). We went to the 124th floor and we got up there in the worlds fastest elevator. The view from the top was breathtaking and you just realize how amazing it is. I got so many great pictures (most featured above) and it was just amazing. This was probably the best highlight of the trip and it will always be one of my greatest achievements.

I hope you enjoyed this little breakdown of a post. Let me know if you want more of my Dubai series. Have a great day!
