Today I wake up up with the wow of going out to the magnificent Palm that I saw on my way in on the flight. This palm is basically a massive prong of sand and beaches that stretches out from Dubai. Sensational Villas, Hotels and Apartments line every inch of this thing with incredible private beaches. However at the end of the massive street you see the giant Atlantis. This is a structure that claims to replicate the lost city of Atlantis and hey! i’d believe it. It is insane and once again due to our agenda i only say but a tiny part of its magnificent.
We rock up to the carpark which looks like it is ready for 5 billion people to arrive any moment but alas it is summer and it is too hot to go to the water park so there is only a couple of cars parked in the corner – how strange! but definitely true. Luckily today we were once again greeted with some slight breezes to get us through… I digress… This water park is crazy huge and we catch the air conditioned shuttle bus from the carpark to the entry.
My pointer for anyone entering this place is to get a map – it gets to a point where it is all just a maze of beaches and rapids and it is hard to tell if you have been around the whole place or not. But let me tell you this… we did.. probably more than once haha. It is very hot to go round but you hit awesome shady bits that you bask in delight. The rides are filled with intense excitement and i found myself in a fit of giggles at the end of them due to how much i squealed through out them.
Lunch was yummy fries and chicken burgers looking out over the beach, i could have stayed there all day it was so relaxing. I found all the staff around the place really fun and nice – constantly wanting to make sure you were having a good time – wicked.
Lastly what day could be complete without a young phillipino singing you the classics like ‘price tag’ and rhiannas ‘umbrella’ and ‘whats your name’…no day could be…
Brillant day took it out of me, i had my taste of Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough Ice cream (amazing!) and was asleep by 830 haha. Tomorrow we are doing the famous brunch… looking very forward to doing myself up!
