Day 2 Dubai

Thursd 3rd. Started with the trip up the mighty Burj Khalifa tower. What a magnificent building. It has only been open for a year or two and stands as a beacon over Dubai, dwarfing every other skyscraper in town. We went up to the 124th floor observatory wher you get to see the scale of Dubai. Amazing views and not a place to be if you are not keen on heights.
After the tower, a cruise around the lower two floors of the huge shopping mall was undertaken. Lots of window shopping but the only purchase was lunch and a new belt for The Chauffeur. Girl,s were a bit overwhelmed I think.
 At 4pm we caught the Desert Safari, which took us 4 wheel driving out in the sand dunes, including seeing some falconry and finishing with a great meal, returning home at 10pm. A great trip and certainly something to recommend to anyone travelling here.
