Quick Stop in Dubai

When were we there
5 days, October 15-19

Where did we go
✈️ Flight from Cape Town to Dubai
🏨 Mövenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel Dubai

We found ourselves constantly flying through Dubai on Emirates, so we thought we might as well stay a few days and see what this place it all about. It was pretty underwhelming. There isn’t really anything to do. Sure you can ski indoors, but *why*? So we just sat on the beach/by the pool for a few days and relaxed.

It’s also very expensive. $30 for a cocktail (you can only get alcohol at hotels). $5 to have room service bring a bucket of ice. It’s just not fun when things are that crazy.
