Sightseeing, Safa Park and the Flea Market :)

It's the Saturday or end of the weekend here and so we thought we do some sightseeing, and also a visit to the Flea Market that happens to be at the Safa park so we took the opportunity to explore the park and go to the flea market at the same time.

Starting of here are some awesome building architecture here in Dubai that you can imagine them architects having fun creating their masterpiece here and you can see also that it seems that the designs are really bizarre and unique and i must say i think these guys just have the sky as their limits really :)

I love these camel by the road side it looks so colourful and bright that it never fails to make me smile when we drove pass it :)

Along Wafi Shopping Mall

Just look at them skyscraper

Dubai Busines Bay Area

Mon coeur at the Gate 2 Safa park

The location map of the huge Safa Park and that we just found out that we need to get to Gate 5 thank god there is a little train that you pay 2 Dh to take you from one gate to another.


Beautiful Park indeed :)

Children's play ground

More flowers :)

Sitting on the grass waiting for the little train to take us to gate 5

On the way....

The view from the little train

beautiful landscape with the skyscraper at the background

Finally we reach the Flea Market @ Gate 5
It opens from 8am till 3pm i think but the little train is only open til 2pm

The huge crowd
 and we ended up just window shopping and suddenly founf ourselves hungry and head to a small eatery within the park called Malik Burger to have our lunch

While we had our lunch a group of little japanese girls from a nearby Japanese school presented us with their Oragami paperwork and in return we donated some change we had for the air of the Japan recent Tsunami Aid fund drive.

And here are the Japanese Origami selling girls :)

After lunch we went for a short walk and decided to find some shade to have a rest under this huge tree for a little siesta :)


And so we found our shade and here is where we crash for a bit of chillaxing :)

With the help from Mr tree we managed to get this picture taken :)

Look...who is zzzzzzzzzzzzing :))

ok finally he awakes for this snap :)

so we head back to continue the day for apartment hunting :)

More tall buildings
