Festival City....







Latest attraction in Dubai: The Festival City. I was there last week...actually to buy some cheap stuff from the big IKEA next door. Impressive design...massive building...and it is not even completed yet! You need a map (yes it's provided) to just walk around. There's a canal outside with a fleet of Abras (water transport) to transport guests along it. Nice.

I think it will take on a different look in the evening..sipping coffee at the alfresco cafe..watching those tourists on the Abras waving to u..i imagine myself lifting the middle finger..lol...just kidding!


A Festival of Sport was held earlier...currently it's Festival of Art. I guess the "brilliant" people who came up with this concept will have to come up with a theme every month..rather tiresome i think!
