Take a look at the amenities of our five-star hotel every day. The United Arab Emirates is made up of seven countries of varying sizes. The country is very rich, a man can have four wives, one wife will be given a villa, and four wives will be given four villas. After giving birth to the baby, the country will raise you up. The country will provide for the baby to go to school for further study and study abroad, but there is a requirement that you must return to the country and cannot emigrate abroad. Free medical care for all. Dubai is also a fully tax-free country, there is no such thing as taxation. To encourage the planting of palm trees, the government subsidizes a lot of money to encourage tree planting! The road here has 7 lanes in one direction and 14 lanes in both directions. All vehicles are clean and tidy, the paint surface is shiny and the oil price is more than two yuan. There is only 100mm of rainfall throughout the year. Very dry! Among the seven small countries in the United Arab Emirates, there are three countries that are open to tourism, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah. Today we went to Sharjah and desert surfing. Let me, a Chinese off-roader, come here to experience the atmosphere of sand playing in the Middle East . ?
At dawn, the scenery outside the window is so beautiful! We stayed in Block B of the Twin Towers of the Marriott Hotel in Dubai. Since there is no switch in the room of this five-star hotel, we noticed that we had to pull out the card to turn off the lights at night. The next morning, I quickly worked out the trick of turning on and off the lights, and everything was electronic. For those of us who don’t understand English or Arabic, it’s a very happy thing! There is no RMB in circulation here at all, if the tour guide has a little money, it can be exchanged! Ten of us who are relatively young in the team live in a five-star hotel, and ten older people live in a four-star hotel. After inquiring, it turns out that the prices are different. To be honest, when traveling abroad, I would rather be more expensive and comfortable!
In the morning, everyone showed various poses while waiting for the bus in the lobby, and took a group photo! The ten of us, from Chengdu and Hanzhong, have a relatively young five-star team born in the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s!
After the car arrived, the tour guides Shitou and Yuanyuan took everyone to Sharjah to learn about the cultural capital of the UAE. The density of mosques here is much higher than that of Abu Dhabi, the political capital, and Dubai, the economic capital!
Sharjah is the third largest emirate in the United Arab Emirates after Abu Dhabi and Dubai . It straddles the east and west coasts of the United Arab Emirates, borders the Arabian Gulf to the west, the Gulf of Oman to the east , the Persian Gulf to the left, and the Indian Ocean to the right, covering an area of 2,600 square kilometers. The unique geographical location makes Sharjah an emirate with the most diverse geographical environment in the UAE, making it an important international transportation hub since 1965.
Sharjah is also a famous cultural city in the Middle East , and the Koran Monument Square is the cultural center of Sharjah. In the street garden of the Quran Monument Square in Sharjah , there stands a huge sculpture of an open book, which is the Quran Monument. It is reported that this was built to commemorate the signing of the joint agreement when the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates were founded. The white building behind it is the chief’s office, the royal mosque is on the left, the cultural palace is on the right, and the assembly hall is on the other.
Jia City is not only the political, economic and cultural center of the emirate, but also the seat of the emirate’s royal family and major government departments. The Sheikh of Sharjah has long attached great importance to the development of education, Islamic culture and the protection of cultural relics. In 1998, UNESCO awarded Sharjah the title of “Cultural Capital of the Arab World” in recognition of its outstanding achievements in the field of culture and education.
All kinds of beauties are tearing up! Say no more!
Take a quick tour of the King’s Mansion in Sharjah. There are trees and grasslands, spacious and luxurious, and I call it a “rich area”!
The greening in other places is much worse, which cannot be compared with Dubai!
In the morning, I went to the latex store to take a nap, where I could learn about the production of more than 90% quality latex products in the UAE. The current king said that if you want to do it, you must be the first. This concept is very good! So, they import the raw materials and produce their own products with the highest content of latex. There are mattresses, pillows, quilts and sets for children.
In the afternoon, this buddy came to the hotel to pick us up for the desert. Take us flying on the sand beams. Don’t look at his beard. After contacting him, you will find that he is as cheerful and lively as the domestic off-road people. He is also very cute. He also has a pair of eyes with long eyelashes. Very nice, hahaha! Along the way, he used the subwoofer in the car to continuously show us his various music? His Land Cruiser V8 is equipped with a roll cage and is wrapped in leather. The interior is very nice! I feel that he is very attentive! How about we drag him into the cross-country E Hanzhong team? Hahaha! The off-road man from Sharjah has a mighty appearance but a gentle heart. He often said along the way, China veirui veirui gude, my pinyin! Not English. hey-hey?! At the end of our party, he was waiting for us at the door. It was not easy for us to find him among dozens of white Land Cruiser LC200 cars and the crowd of Sharjah white robes wearing the same. Similarly, it was even more difficult for him to find us among hundreds of people , because he has to safely send us to the hotel to complete the task!
People who didn’t go to sand surfing toured around the hotel
Desert driving in Sharjah has formed a culture, an industry, and a desert culture with strong regional characteristics. However, for me, it is not exciting enough or enjoyable enough, because they set up programs for safety and fun for people outside the off-road circle. Why not drive to Tengger and Badain Jaran by ourselves! Hahaha! Anyway, we are also the ones who drove through the desert and washed chicken coops! hey-hey?!
Speaking of going to Dubai, I really didn’t know where it was at first? After asking Du Niang and Chaowei, I realized that it is a good city in the Middle Eastern Arab Emirates. Half of the land is desert and half is sea. Dubai (Arabic: دبي, English: Dubai), is a modern international metropolis, the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates, the second richest city in the Middle East, the economic and financial center of the Middle East, and is known as the “trade city” of the Middle East and North Africa. All”.
Dubai is located in the middle of the Arabian Peninsula, on the south coast of the Arabian Gulf, and is the center of the Gulf region. It faces the South Asian subcontinent across the sea, neighbors Qatar, borders Saudi Arabia, and borders Oman. Dubai has a permanent population of about 2.8 million, of which the local population accounts for about 15%. Foreigners come from more than 200 countries and regions around the world. There are about 340,000 Chinese living in Dubai, and other foreigners come from Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Iran, India, Pakistan, and the Philippines. As one of the global international financial centers, Dubai has become a bridge between the capital markets of the East and the West, and has also become an important logistics, trade, transportation, tourism and shopping center. It has the world’s first seven-star hotel (the Burj Al Arab), the world’s tallest (828m) skyscraper (the Burj Khalifa), the world’s largest shopping mall, the world’s largest indoor ski resort, etc., with active real estate, Nearly world-record features such as competitions and talks have attracted the attention of the whole world. The 2020 World Expo will be held here. In November 2018, the world city rankings were released, and Dubai was selected as an Alpha+ city.
All right! Since it’s good, let’s go and have a look! This is the first time in my life to enter a Middle Eastern country. Some taboos need to be followed, and some history needs to be understood! This is a girlfriends trip! These girlfriends, half 55, 6, half 61, 2, let us take you into Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Dubai, and see what the international metropolis looks like in our eyes!
The journey of six girlfriends kicks off today! It’s a friendship they’ve had together since they were kids playing in the mud, and they’ve never been out together. By chance, everyone said they wanted to go out for a walk, so they quickly decided on a trip to the Middle East! Depart from Hanzhong on December 11, and go to Chengdu to gather and travel with a group. If you go abroad, you have to go with a group, so you don’t worry. Maybe this instant trip came too fast, everyone quickly adjusted their mood and put themselves into the mentality of adapting to travel. From now on, record the UAE travel experience, welcome everyone to follow!
We set off by bullet train and arrived at Chengdu East Railway Station from Hanzhong in about 140 minutes. No need to leave the station, take Line 7 and transfer to Line 10 to arrive at the airport for international departure in 40 minutes. Everything went smoothly, because we came early, everyone took a walk, ate Malatang, Douhua and Chengdu noodles! What do you want to do! Do whatever you want!
I went to watch a show for a while. This is an airline event. It’s lively enough! Thinking about it carefully, it is really convenient now. It takes three hours and twenty minutes to get from Hanzhong to Shuangliu Airport.
After five hours of waiting, the team leader held a meeting to explain the precautions, changed the boarding pass, went through the security check, and after passing the customs, the six of us finally boarded the plane smoothly! At 8:20, the Airbus 330 took off smoothly with everyone on board. The international flight is huge!
The facilities are good when the plane is big, there are many interfaces, charging is not a problem, there is also an aviation “navigation” displaying time, air mileage, local time of arrival, etc.
We will land in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates in the Middle East, after more than eight hours of sailing. The time is four hours later than China, the arrival time should be around 24 o’clock in the UAE, and the domestic time should be 4 o’clock in the morning.
The plane starts to taxi and enters the take-off mode. The whole movement is much more comfortable than that of a small plane. Each person has a back cushion, a thin blanket, and an earphone. I’m writing a beauty article, and Peizhu has fallen asleep! It was not easy for her today, the routine of life was disrupted, and she didn’t sleep well at noon. Come on for her! Take off now! See you tomorrow morning in Abu Dhabi!
We took a five-star Etihad Airways flight to Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. Half an hour later, it rose to an altitude of 12222 meters. This is to let us get up at 2222 meters after going out! Hahaha!
Meals will be delivered after 22:00, first give a note, and choose three kinds of meals by yourself. The handsome guy in the UAE can’t speak Chinese, and we can’t speak English, so we rely on this note to communicate. However, the rice we asked for was still very delicious, and we didn’t finish the meal!
box of ice cream
A box of cold noodles
One each of bread and jam.
Oily chicken and rice, one box.
cutlery and spoon
Everyone is refreshed after eating!
We probably went abroad from Yunnan and flew over India at an altitude of 12,700 meters.
At 23:30, everyone dozed off, sleep?!
Xu Min is very energetic, standing and chatting, and I secretly took a picture.
After an eight-hour and twenty-five flight, we landed safely in Abu Dhabi! Good morning everybody! [cover face][cover face]
Stay in a five-star hotel, pack your clothes for tomorrow, go to bed early, and sleep less than five hours. I said good morning, now I say good night! I’m stuck! When we departed from China, the temperature was zero degrees, and when we arrived in Abu Dhabi, the temperature was 26 degrees, which was very hot. —The end of the world is not far away, far and near, the essence is the feeling, the psychological distance is better than the physical distance—reply to report

Our first stop in Abu Dhabi, the main goal is the Sheikh Zayed Mosque. From June 6, 2012, the Sheikh Zayed Mosque will no longer provide tourists with black and white robes and headscarves for women. Guests should prepare light long clothes and trousers before leaving the group. Women also need Bring your own headscarf for baotou. If you don’t wear it as required, you are not allowed to enter and visit. So, as required, we woke up this morning to make preparations and mix up our outfits, even though we didn’t sleep for a few hours last night.
They said that such attire is in line with the requirements of tour guides. That’s why none of us were turned away from visiting mosques. Everyone is very serious about being a “woman” in the Middle East!
There are not many times like this, everyone takes pictures to commemorate! Save cute moments! Hahaha! A bunch of old urchins!
The Sheikh Zayed Mosque, also known as the Abu Dhabi Grand Mosque, was built in memory of Sheikh Zayed, the first president of the United Arab Emirates. It is one of the few mosques open to non-Muslims. This mosque is famous for its luxury and is very magnificent. The outer walls of the mosque are all made of white marble imported from Greece, and shells and precious stones are inlaid into the marble for decoration. In addition, tons of gold were used in the decoration of the entire mosque, and there are gorgeous crystal lamps of 800,000 US dollars each inside. It is said that the construction of the entire mosque cost 5.5 billion US dollars.
The exterior is magnificent, and the interior is exquisitely crafted, very exquisite!
All-ceramic carving, lifelike, wonderful!
These lights are resplendent! Show the glory and wealth! Exquisite! The atmosphere is magnificent!
People say that there are three women in one drama, let alone we have more dramas with six women. In the next few days, we will have more highlights!
This is the five-star hotel we stayed in, and everyone said the bed was comfortable! Beautiful!
Along the way, the tour guide Shishi introduced us to the situation in Abu Dhabi. This guy from Shaanxi, graduated from Xi’an University of Foreign Languages, works as a tour guide in this city, and just picked up our group. It’s really good!
Breakfast buffet! And the tall buildings in front of the hotel!
The United Arab Emirates (Arabic: امارات عربية متحدة, English: The United Arab Emirates), referred to as the United Arab Emirates, is located in the east of the Arabian Peninsula, bordering the Persian Gulf in the north, neighboring Qatar in the northwest, bordering Saudi Arabia in the west and south, and bordering Saudi Arabia in the east and northeast. The coastline adjacent to Oman is 734 kilometers long, with a total area of 83,600 square kilometers, and the capital is Abu Dhabi. In the 7th century AD, the UAE belonged to the Arab Empire. Since the 16th century, colonialists such as Portugal, the Netherlands, and France have successively invaded. At the beginning of the 19th century, it gradually became a British protectorate. On March 1, 1971, the United Kingdom announced that the treaties signed with the emirates would be terminated at the end of the year. On December 2 of the same year, the United Arab Emirates was declared a federal state consisting of six emirates: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Fujairah, Umm Al Quwain and Ajman. On February 10, 1972, Ras Al Khaimah joined the Federation. The local residents of the UAE are Arabs, and most of them believe in Islam. The Burj Al Arab in Dubai, UAE is the only seven-star hotel in the world. The Al Ain Cultural Site is the only World Heritage Site in the United Arab Emirates. On December 5, 2017, the European Union announced that the United Arab Emirates had been blacklisted as a tax haven. In May 2018, the “2018 World Competitiveness Report” was officially released, and the United Arab Emirates ranked 7th
After breakfast at the hotel, take a bus to [Heritage Village], to the long coastline – white sand, sunshine, making you feel like you are in Hawaii; and the famous landmarks in the shape of cannons and teapots are all on the seaside boulevard, overlooking the opposite bank sea view and beautiful sandy beach.
For lunch, we specially arranged to go to Jumeirah United Building, which is the classic scene of the movie “Speed and Furious Seven”, and went to Rosewater Restaurant to enjoy an international buffet lunch. Overlooking the panoramic view of the Eight-Star Palace Hotel and the magnificent scenery of the downtown area of Abu Dhabi, you can also appreciate the high-rise buildings and majestic buildings with different shapes in each city. Abu Dhabi is such a low-key, luxurious and connotative city!
The high-rise buildings in the new district of Dubai are imposing. Giant 3D water curtain show, feel the fantasy world intertwined by the four elements of light, sound, water and fire. Designed and created by the Laservision Mega Media team, inspired by a video story about a young boy composing his magical journey.

The lights in the elevator room on each floor are different, beautiful!
At around six o’clock in the morning, my sister Peizhu and I took one of the nine elevators on the first floor of the hotel to the top of the elevator on the 74th floor. We wanted to climb high and look far away, but we never thought that we couldn’t see the outside from the top floor. As a result, after descending to the 48th floor, I saw the distant view of the previous photos, which is very beautiful! We went to the hotel swimming pool first, a kind of beauty in tranquility, the Twin Towers are especially beautiful in the morning light! After breakfast, we visited the Arab Art Center, the Jewelry City, the Iranian town, went to the sea to see the Burj Al Arab, and watched the night view of the Palm Jumeirah on the maglev train. We ran happily all day, almost crazy! Once the women are crazy, they will be in a great mood!
At the first stop in the morning, we went to the Arab Culture and Art Center. The tapestry woven with gold thread in this place was once given to Xi Jinping by the King of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates as an international gift. There are also camel wool blankets, wool blankets are genuine, the workmanship is very exquisite, and the feeling is very good. Each tapestry is a moment to reveal a historical story!
At the second stop, we went to the famous [Bastani-Iranian town] in Dubai, where we can see the Arabian wind tower buildings with strong characteristics, reproducing the wisdom of the ancient Arab people, and at the same time with the traditional style. Arab streets and modern civilization are intertwined and collided here. Standing on the street of a traditional building and looking at the boats coming from the Dubai Creek in the distance, the light and shadow of history seem to return to the ancient era of the Thousand and One Nights.
Dubai has only been established for more than 40 years, and its history is actually the history of the family, without a profound history and culture. It is said to be a national museum, but it does not have tall and luxurious buildings like other countries, but an old loess house, which is really far from the imagined museum. The museum is a loess-colored earthen building with the UAE flag flying at the entrance. There are several large and small boats at the entrance of the museum, as well as the old air duct models that Dubai people used to live in in old houses for ventilation and cooling. There is also an old sailing ship on display in the compound, which has now become a symbol of the museum. There is a towering gun tower at one corner of the compound, which is the only military defense facility.
Before going out to sea, we also went to [Middle East Arabian Jewelry Center], which brought together custom diamonds and diamond jewelry from South Africa and Belgium, ranging from jewelry to the favorite gold jewelry of Middle Eastern tycoons. Here, we met the straightforward general manager Xiao Li, who carefully introduced the common sense of treasures to us, and recommended jewelry to us at a discount.
Seven Star Sailing Hotel
Overlooking the Marriott Gemini five-star hotel where we live
Overlook the Burj Al Arab
Yachting at sea is the happiest thing. The seagulls were flying up and down with the boat, chattering so lively, not only were they lively, even our girlfriends became excited like seagulls, almost crazy, everyone said they were so happy! Just be happy, right?
Everyone is dazzled by the Burj Al Arab. There are some on the sea, some on land, and some in the afterglow of the setting sun. I always feel that I can’t get enough of them!
We also took the unmanned light rail tram (one way) to enter the [artificial Palm Island], which is known as the eighth wonder of the world, to watch the most magnificent Atlantis The Palm in Dubai [Atlantis Hotel] and take you to experience the Palm Island. A great plan to break through the history of human engineering; visit [Jumeirah Bathing Beach], and enjoy the sunset and night view of the 7-star Burj Al Arab at the Arabian Temple on the Sea, which is decorated with 24 tons of gold. Today’s content arrangement is relatively tight. After watching it, it is dark, and everyone has gained a lot! —The end of the world is not far away, far and near, the essence is the feeling, the psychological distance is better than the physical distance—reply to report

Dubai has a lot of beautiful scenery. I don’t think you will understand how beautiful the city is if you don’t look at it from a high altitude! In today’s itinerary, there are two main itineraries worth recording. One is the high-altitude view of the seaplane. The second is various activities surrounding the Burj Khalifa. Both activities were astonishing and entertaining!
When we came to the Dubai Seaplane Sports Club, we firstly conducted safety training, learned about the aircraft’s operating routes, let everyone know the whole process of the flight, and issued a boarding ticket. This series of processes is very necessary.
Anyone who is into photography knows the joys of seeing from above. See the ground from a very high place, and even a city you know so well starts to take on a new look, with colors, buildings and landforms that you didn’t notice before. So, the air tour is one of our most anticipated trips in Dubai. Dubai is a long and narrow country, half desert and half coastline. If you don’t look at it from high altitude, you only reach the seaside, and you can appreciate the beauty of the city and coastline only at high altitude!
Dubai and seaplanes seem to be tailor-made for each other, and tourists who want to break free from the ground can feel it. This seaplane can take 9 passengers at a time, circling over various landmarks, natural landscapes and human-space wonders, such as Jumeirah Palm Island, Burj Al Arab, Downtown Dubai, and a 40-minute “dock-to-dock” trip Can bring you absolutely unforgettable memories.
The seven-star sailing hotel overlooks the
Palm Jumeirah overlooking
It takes less than half an hour to go around! The takeoff and landing of the seaplane feels very light, without big bumps, beautiful! I went with three elderly people in their 70s and two handsome guys born in the 1980s. This is a cost-effective project, allowing everyone to overlook the beautiful scenery of Dubai city and coastline from a high altitude!
The other sisters enjoyed the view on the golf course while we went to fly!
Then, we boarded the observation deck on the 125th floor of the 828-meter Burj Khalifa and looked around, with a panoramic view of the main urban areas of Dubai.
The Burj Khalifa, formerly known as the Burj Khalifa, also known as the Dubai Building or the Bis Burj Khalifa, is the tallest building and artificial structure in the world. The Burj Khalifa is 828 meters high, with a total of 162 floors and a cost of US$1.5 billion. The building itself costs at least US$1 billion, not including the cost of building large shopping malls, lakes and shorter towers. The Burj Khalifa uses a total of 330,000 cubic meters of concrete, 62,000 tons of reinforced steel, and 142,000 square meters of glass. In order to build the Burj Khalifa, a total of about 4,000 workers and 100 cranes were used to pump the concrete vertically to a height of more than 606 meters, breaking the record of 492 meters when the Shanghai World Financial Center was built. There are 56 elevators in the building, with a speed of up to 17.4 m/s. In addition, there are double-decker sightseeing elevators, which can carry up to 42 people at a time. The Burj Khalifa was built in 2004. On the evening of January 4, 2010 local time, the ruler of Dubai, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, unveiled the “Burj Khalifa” known as “the tallest building in the world”. ” curtain on the monument, announcing the official completion of the building and renaming it the Burj Khalifa. (Borrow the picture to appreciate its beauty)
Dubai is a peninsula of the world. There are people from all countries, and everyone can communicate with simple gestures. Therefore, we feel that this trip is very comfortable, very happy, very comfortable! The perfect last day, exciting activities, people linger! Assemble after 7:00 pm, return to Abu Dhabi from Dubai, and fly back home the next day!
