  • Flamingos next to huge skyscrapers. But well protected and good to see. There are 2 entrances. The rear is far away from the flamingos. The forward, who is closer to the City, gives a good view of resting and flying flamingos

  • Vacationed in Dubai, chose this emirate because of the proximity of "brands" UAE, such as Dubai Marina, Burj Khalifa, and the archipelago of Palm. Lived at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Waterfront. The rooms are new, the breakfasts are great, and there are a lot of restaurants nearby. Although the center is only 20 minutes, but i do not advise to walk, as for pedestrians there is little adapted. It is better to choose a couple of days, take a car and see everything. They didn't take the risk of getting behind the wheel. They took the driver. If you need to be able to give all the "poons and appearances" as they were very satisfied. Next to the Burj Khalifa skyscraper there is a free Musical Fountain in Dubai - it is worth a look. The Burj Khalifa skyscraper entrance is paid, but if you go to Dubai, this skyscraper is worth a visit. Ras Al Khor Wildl...
