What shall you do when your stopover is 22 hours in the airport? When I got my ticket to Turkey, I found out that I have a stopover in Abu Dhabi in United Arab Emirates. I was thinking on how to consume my time inside the airport for 22 hours . However, it popped out of my mind the idea to go out the airport and enjoy sight seeing the city of Abu Dhabi or travelled to Dubai. The two cities I think garnered a good reputation to travellers. So, I decided to get a transit visa in United Arab Emirates, lucky for me as it is now available for Filipinos to apply for a transit visa online (See Related Article). It was the month of July that I went there. Summer in UEA, the heat of the air and the sun is intolerable. Before I travelled I contacted a friend in Abu Dhabi, to accommodate my tour in the city. It was the best of luck that my friend is on his day off and tour me around the city of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. He drove me around Abu Dhabi and Dubai. I did not expect that I could see the world’s tallest building. My friend just brought me to the place. At that time, for me it was just nothing until I found out in google that what I have seen in Dubai is the tallest building in the world. Only then that I felt the excitement. I have also seen the famous Burj Al Arab. Burj Al Arab almost the symbol of Dubai. I have seen lots of beautiful scenery. One thing that I missed in Dubai is the Desert Safari. Although, I was not able to experience the Desert Safari, I was still very satisfied with my 22hours of stay in the two cities. So, when you come to Dubai be sure you have a lot of time to roam around the city. I recommend, do not come during summer, I tell you the heat is really intolerable. Enjoy your stay in Dubai.
