DubaiI was passing through on my way back from China so took a few days to look around. An ex-colleagues family kindly put me up for a few nights and showed me the less touristy parts of the town. 

DubaiI could not resist snowboarding in the huge ski hall they have built. 40°C outside. 20°C in the shopping mall and -2ĉ in the ski hall. Crazy.

The picture on the right shows one of the amazing hotels. This one has appartments connected by canals and you are taken to your rooms and back by boat.
