We had another good nights sleep with John being gone when I woke up. He went to the Gym before going for a run in the neighbourhood. The weather has been very hot (not surprising 40+) and air conditioning has been most welcome.
About 9.30am we got a taxi to the Atlantis Water Park and it cost A$ 50.00. The Water Park was …
We had a good nights sleep and John and Kate went to the Gym about 8am. I stayed in bed reading. Arose about 9am and had a light breakfast and considered our activities today with Kate and John after they returned.
We decided on an evening Desert Safari and a visit to the Emirates Mall via the Dubai Metro.
... 10 minutes per person. After four hours of waiting in line and making small talk with the fellow travelers around us we reached the check in desk. At this point our flight had been well delayed, but at least we knew we would be on it. Piles and piles of bags were being tagged and stacked all over the terminal as the systems slowly came back online again. At 2pm our flight to Dubai left the gate and we were finally off on the first leg of our long journey back to New ...
... sleep to see on the flight path screen still another 6hours to Melbourne! I couldn't settle to watching a film or even to listening to music or reading one of the many books I had loaded on to my Kindle in preparation for this time :-) I did watch a couple of hour long documentaries, one about Prince Harry and one about Facebook, and I listened to a bit music, some old Diana Ross and Rod Stewart! Far far too excited to settle to ...
... the hotel tickets for o'clock. When I went there, they made us wait for half an hour and then we went into the fastest elevator in the world and I could feel my ears closing. When i went to the top, my heart touched my lungs because it was really high and i am afraid of heights. The whole thing was made of glass and If we fell from there then who knows what would have happened.We took a lot of pictures and had Fun.

TravelPod Member ReviewsCity Premiere Hotel Apartments Dubai
On arrival at the hotel early on the morning we found extra charges and taxes were required for early entry, which were not mentioned when the booking went through. The room was very large and really ideal for our use. The staff were very helpful and always willing. Cleanliness was average and the floors were sticky. Please remember that you will have to bring yout T Towels, salt / pepper, dishwashing and cleaning utensils and detergent. We found the Knives in the wooden block with blades as if they had been in a battle. That aside and after adjusting for this we found the location ideal and we had a good time. Free wifi was great. Taxis are cheap, but watch for the concierges wanting to get you to use the Lomo's which cost more. The Metro is only about 400 meters away and is a great experience. If you have queries there - the staff are really helpful. Supermarkets are very close. The washing machine worked well as did the other appliances. Would probably use again knowing whats required.
