Being close to the water was a very nice feature of our area assignment :)

Doing a yacht tour was therefore a must! Together with many other LH colleagues, we rented a yacht and drove out to the Persian Gulf. Unfortunately not that far out, but far enough to see the interesting silhouette of Dubai … We passed by the Palm Jumeira, Palm Atlantis, along the famous hotel Burj al Arab and the many nice beaches of Dubai. We spent an unforgettable afternoon on the turquoise sea combined with the wonderful sunshine and the great colleagues. A tour which was definitely worth it!

Another tour (this time by car :) ) gave us the opportunity to stop at the Palm and visit the Atlantis hotel as well as the lost Chambers Aquarium. This artificial island in form of a palm gives the city a beautiful touch and must-see sight. It was amazing to see the interesting architecture of the Palm Atlantis hotel and the fascinating under water world in the aquarium.

The seafood we had quite a lot of times was therefore nothing unusual. All kinds of fishes and seafood could be found in Dubai. We have to admit, we already miss the tasteful delicatessen and nice meals :)
