The Dubai Brunch

Okay, so if you read the title and thought 'Brunch, what's so special about that?' then bear with me on this. Brunch in Dubai is not like any other brunch, and will leave you feeling much more rounded and dizzy than a mid morning brunch in the UK.

To start, it is on a Friday afternoon.
Every hotel in Dubai has their own Brunch going on...
It is an all you can drink, and all you can eat feast.
Finally, it goes on from 12pm to 5pm. Which is just enough time to blur your vision!

Grabbing yet another taxi (you honestly cannot walk anywhere), we drove to down-town Dubai for our Brunch Experience. 
We arrived at Double Decker, which is part of the Rotana Hotel, paid our 250AED (£50) and headed on inside to get started.

The food, as expected, was amazing. From a traditional roast dinner, to curries, steaks and pastas, there was choice for everyone.
You seriously have to experience a Brunch if you are ever in Dubai. It is worth the money and it is a great way to get chatting to the locals and tourists.

After an afternoon of eating and drinking, mixing with other groups, and experiencing a Dubai Brunch, we headed back to the apartment just in time to catch the sunset from Stacey's rooftop.

Cue more photo opportunities for the Dubai 2013 album!

Plus, there is nothing better than taking an evening dip in the pool (sober, of course!).

One thing you notice is how much Dubai is constantly changing. New buildings are always popping up, trying to outdo the next door neighbour in height and style, and workmen stand there in the sweltering heat, trying to get as much work done as possible. 

Even at night, when we headed out for drinks at Barista, the workmen were still going, making this city even greater than it already is!

I don't think I am ready to go home just yet...
