Dubai is Disneyland

This is our second day in Dubai. In the morning, we went to the mall near our hotel called Mall of Emirates. This mall is huge with luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel but also the ones where I usually shop like H&M, and Zara. We walked around the mall without purchasing a thing and later let the kids play in the huge playground called Magic Planet. Inside the mall it was really cool but outside the temperatures reached 48 degrees. I have never experienced such a heat and we were crazy enough to walk around the neighborhood under it.
Thankfully I wore this:

Black scarf - Walmart
Black dolman open cardigan - Shimamura
Maxi dress - Chatujak Market (Bangkok - Thailand)
Shoes - H&M
Accessories - gifted and 777 store in Vivre Yokohama

The dress is super light and airy so I did not feel the heat as much as I would have. But I cannot say the same about the scarf. Yet it kept my head burning from the UV rays. And to think that it could get hotter according to the locals.
Speaking of which, a friend of my husband who have been living in Dubai since last Winter, picked us up in the afternoon for a ride around town. He took us all over Dubai, to the crazy Palm Jumeirah with the Atlantis hotel, to the Bastakia or old Dubai, near the Burj Khalifa buidling where MI-4 was filmed, to the Souk...practically everywhere. We got to see all sides of Dubai, the luxurious ones and the normal one. During the ride, we realized that Dubai was a big amusement park. My husband called it Disneyland. There were so many attractions such as aquarium, playground, theme parks and other tourist traps. We have not done any of these things because of the lack of time, but also because of Ramadan. It is kind of hard to fast and do some sightseeing. However, we are saving it for another time when we will come just to visit and enjoy Dubai more.
