March 30, 2016 - United Arab Emirates

After the time-consuming entry in UAE at the harbour I look for an affordable hotel in Deira.

The next day I visit the old town, the bazaar

and in the evening the Marina Mall with the skyscrapers. The atmosphere of this city surprises me. Parts of the Mall have no traffic and are criss-crossed with water channels. There are a lot of nice possibilities to spend some time.

Originally I had only planned a short visit in Dubai. I stay another day and take a walk in town. I visit the Palm Island and the worlds highest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa.

The next day I leave the city with the many skyscrapers by bike, using the highways leading out of town (40 kilometres). Dubai is a very clean city, but just out of town it looks different. The buildings are mostly in good condition. The surroundings do not look so well. My tour takes me to the north, to Musandam, which is an enclave of Oman. Riding along the ocean with deep colours from blue to green I hear of a deserted city called Spuki City, where one can spend the night in abandoned houses.

I stay in the old mosque, which has been left to decay.
