We spent most of today on the Hop On Hop Off Big Bus tour and finished up back at Dubai Mall for our evening meal before heading back to the airport for our overnight flight to the Seychelles.
The bus tour has two routes - Red for the old town and Blue for the beaches.
Many of the souks in the old town are based around the Dubai Creek - our tour included a cruise on a wooden Arabic Dhow.
The blue route took us away from the old city past many of the skyscrapers that Dubai is famous for.
and onto Atlantis on the Palm - a 46 hectare resort built on an artifical island of reclaimed land.
We finished the tour in the Downtown Dubai area, famous for the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Fountains and the Dubai Mall.
The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world (828 metres high) and overlooks the spectacular Dubai fountains - the world's largest choreographed fountain system set on the 30-acre manmade Burj Khalifa Lake. It was designed by WET Design, the California-based company responsible for the fountains at the Bellagio Hotel Lake in Las Vegas. The fountain shows draw large crowds.
The Dubai Mall is the largest shopping mall in the world and covers an area equivalent to 50 football pitches, it contains over 1200 shops, an Olympic sized Ice Rink and an Aquarium.
