Day 3 : Early morning trip to Ibn Battuta Mall ( mall sound as "mull') using the metro train. How's the Metro train ?... hmm, quite the same as LRT at KL except the train has Gold Class (seat for the purchaser with bigger seating). And the design of Metro Station is like in Star Wars movie.....

Ibn Battuta Mall has nice decorations inside the mall .... enjoy the photos.
Myself, Che Sarim, Salizawati and Ella were so happy for the 1st time visiting Lyda at Dubai. Our flight was scheduled at 2pm and touched DXB at 5pm (Dubai time). At Dubai airport, the immigration lines were so long & slow!! The immigration staff just doing their work steady and slowly .. the lady was busy chatting & make good of her tudung. Well, that was our 1st day experienced at Dubai. After about 1 1/2 hrs standing for the immigration, we were ready to booked a taxi to Al-Jawhara Metro hotel near Deira.

After check-in at hotel, 1st day itinerary was jalan-jalan at Deira streets - looking for jubah & souvernirs. OK la .. the weather was not too HOT cause it was already around 7pm. Come back late to hotel ... & everyone was so ZZZZzzzzzzzz. For dinner myself and Che Sarim ate kebab n polmeganate juice at The Red Burger next to the hotel.

Day 2 : We had half day Dubai City Tour with ABC tour agent. Very informative tour from the agent and we dropped for photos at most of the signature spots at Dubai (Dubai Mall, The Atlantis, Museum, The Art & Natural Gallery, etc). Then we had capati & bryani at Indian food for lunch. This restaurant is not far from Old Dubai.
The shooping mission continued from the Old Dubai to Naif Souq. At Old Dubai souq, there are about 200 stall in it where you can find jubah, souvenirs, t-shirts, etc. Then we took a boat to cross the river to the Naif souq. The boat fee was 1Dhm for one person.

The trip is to expose the kids to other cultures and places. 1st day we have a good lunch at kampung Daun .. on the top of mountain where you can order Bandung food. Nice and clean place but hmmm .. the price is bit expensive.Then we visit the mount of Tankuban Parahu - in active volcano. Lots of arts and souvenirs that you can buy there with cheap price if you good in bargain with local sellers.
My trip 3D/2N at Ho Chi Minh City with my friend Ella, Kak Ani and Farhana on April 2010 is one of best vacations that i had so far. For the Muslims, food will be a bit challanging because not many halal restaurant there. If you are planning to visit Ho Chi Minh City, I suggest you to stay at hotels near by the Ben Thanh market. Not only it is easy for you to go shopping (Ben Thant market is just like arked mara where you can find almost anything from kain ela, buat baju, barang2 baju,kasut,beg,cenderahati,etc). Not far from Ben Thant market there is a halal restaurant – VN Halal restaurant. It menu is just like normal Thai restaurant – nasi paprik, tom yam, nasi goreng, ikan masak 3 rasa … just name it however the price is 3x higher that normal price at Malaysia.
Arts is one of the attraction at Vietnam
Business transaction @ Mekong river . You can take half-day trip to explore mekong river at USD10 per person.
