Dubai Creek Dinner Cruise Aboard Al Mansour Dhow

One thing I have recently crossed out from my long list of things to try in Dubai was to go on a Dhow Cruise Dinner along the Deira Creek. I didn't know why it took me so long to do this but a decade of procrastination has paid off when we all boarded the newly refurbished Al Mansour Dhow owned and managed by the five star Raddisson Blu Hotel, Deira Creek Dubai. My family and I along with friends and other media personalities cruised the quiet waters of the Dubai Creek one fine evening a couple of months ago.

Our First Dubai Tram Ride

We never had the chance to use the Dubai tram since it started its operation last November 11, 2014.  We live far away from this side of the city and chances of using the tram is almost close to none.  Most of the people benefiting from this newest public transport system are tourists and those who live and work in parts of  Jumeirah,  Dubai Marina and Media City. Last August, during the school vacation, we had a mini staycation at  Arjaan by Rotana in Dubai Media City  and the tram station was less than five minutes away from the hotel.
