Our Dubai honeymoon trip began with a luxurious cruise. We were dropped off on the crew point around 8:30 pm and then we boarded.

We treated ourselves to the buffet dinner with authentic Arabic cuisines which tasted delicious and also enjoyed some refreshing beverages.

Redefining architecture and design, Burj Khalifa is the tallest architectural wonder of the town and our 5 days in Dubai itinerary had a visit to this wonder. We were baffled to see the beauty of this wonder right in front of our eyes. With two observation decks on the storey at the top of the 125th floor and on the 148th floor. We entered the observatory deck through the Dubai Mall and the jaw-dropping views took our heart. We also enjoyed at the base of the tower which was the vibrant hub of entertainment and featured the enormous Dubai Mall. We enjoyed eating at the KFC and also walked by the choreographed musical Dubai Fountain that attracted us a lot. Both Dubail Mall and Burj Khalifa are must when it comes to places to visit in Dubai in 5 days.

After already having so much in our palettes, our expectations were raised to another level. Desert safari and camping were one of the most cherished experiences on the trip. The adventure began with dune bashing and desert drives. We stopped in the middle of the desert for photo taking. Later we arrived at our campsite.

Dinner was followed by traditional dances like Tanoura dance and belly dance. We had a fun time relaxing and enjoying.
