More of our Dubai stopover.

On our first night in Dubai we had booked a night tour. The lights of the buildings were magnificent but my photos didn’t really do them justice. 

We were taken to see some artificial waterfalls that tumble off a series of bridges. This was the bridge closest to our vantage point. 

We watched as a tourist boat glided up...suddenly the waterfall parted. 

And the boat sailed through! 

After the boat had gone through, the complete waterfall returned! 
That night we also visited a Souk or a traditional market. It was an old building full of vendors. 

These 2 in traditional dress were soon joined by a Westerner who wanted to get up close to their camel! 😂

As we walked down to the lower level I noticed this beautiful chandelier...

The last part of our tour was watching the dancing fountains display. It was stunning! Here is the marina just before the show.

Again my photos don’t really do it justice. 
After that it was time for our bus to take us back to our hotel. It was good to be back in the air conditioned bus as despite it being night time, it was still very hot and we had all been perspiring profusely while looking at the displays etc.

I love that big hanging light in the souk, but it might be a bit big for my home though.

The dancing fountains are amazing!
