Relaxation - Enjoy seabreeze

'Abras', the traditional boats that ply the Dubai Creek
Enjoy sea breeze! Go to the beach and let the breeze unwind yourselves.

'Dhow', a sailing vessel, gliding through the waters!


An exhibit at the Dubai creek during the Dubai shopping festival 2011 - 12. Interesting attractions like these from many countries will be showcased like this during the festival time.

Entrance to Burdubai souq from the creek. Replicas, shawls, spices...you name it, it is all available here.

The famous Dubai dhow cruise. All illuminated dhows will be cruising here at night most of the days. Music, delicious food, dance, onboard magic shows etc. it is all fun! A must enjoy activity while in Dubai!!

A cool place to unwind after a hectic day of work, a peaceful spot to chill out, a hang out to sit quietly reading a book...wow...! We need such things in life to live well. Natural methods to chill out bring everlasting wellness. Identify such cool spots and visit often. Allow some time for Nature to calm us.
  • Recreational activities like music, dance and good food are good stress busters. The most important point to remember is to enjoy the present moment, thoroughly.

Now putting Dubai on my list to visit. I do like boats because it means a journey and so looking forward to seeing them when I visit somewhere with waters. It is also good that someone like you blog places like these so we get an idea of what a country offers.

Dubai has changed so much! I need to go back there to shop again, Rajiv! Hahaha!

Rajiv Sankarapillai said...

Thanks Shirley :)
Dubai is a shopper's paradise, you know better :)

Brian Miller said...

oo would be very cool to be riding on one of those boats...
is that a water taxi? we used to have them in baltimore

Rajiv Sankarapillai said...

Those are traditional boats called 'abras'. Now they are run with motor on board and ferry through the creek as taxis. Now-a-days there are modern water taxis too plying the creek.
Nice comment, Brian :)

stardust said...

The day cruise hearing the voices of sea gulls under the blue sky or fascinating night cruise: I can’t decide which to go. Maybe both?

Rajiv Sankarapillai said...

Beautiful comment, Yoko :)
Dubai creek fascinates me always ! Me too had the same dilemma; finally settled for 'both' ! :)
