After spending a day for a thrilling adventure on Dubai desert safari, I had 2 days left to explore Dubai. I decided to hire a driver with a car for a full day city tour. I find it very convenient and time saving when I don't have enough time to get lost in a city. I just need to tell him which places I want to go and he will arrange the best route for me. I was glad I did it though, no hassle to read the map nor which bus to catch under the scorching hot weather. I just need to enjoy the journey inside a car with AC. Bliss !
Because there's a saying....."when in Dubai, travel like a King" (Yeah, I created that one ) hehehe :p
Here's the photo essay of my Dubai city tour:

It's easy to apply the UAE visa online if you fly with Emirates. They even have a great offer for Dubai stopover package including visa, hotel and city tour. Please do check their website if you need more information.
PS: Emirates don't pay me to write this. It's based on my own experience
So, is Dubai on your bucket list?
