Early morning, 3rd February of 2015 all students set for Dubai Trip. Thanks to Fortune Institute of International Business for giving us the opportunity to visit Dubai for educational tour which was a blend of learning and light-hearted amusement. Very well said by St. Augustine “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page” and because of this tour all of us were able to learn about various plans and procedures of industries in Dubai, their policies, manufacturing procedures, their laws, etc. In short we were able to get an insight of Dubai’s Political, economical, social, technological, environmental and legal factors (PESTEL).
In our travel chart, 3 industrial visits were arranged including big industries like Dubal, Rak Ceremic, Nestle and Travaco (Some students visited Travaco instead of Nestle) because of companies policy of restriction on number of students. Not only industrial trip but various other plans were framed like cruise party, Desert Safari and city tour including mall, Jumeirah Beach etc. Students were also given an opportunity to visit Burj Khalifa; 2 days were given to students to explore the city on their own. Students visited Atlantis, Dubai Mall and other places where they wanted to. Food arrangements were extremely good. Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian savoury food items were laid on the table for all. As said, every coin has two sides – the tour was a combination of good and bad things. The above written things were good, we were a little unluckily with the hotel facility. As said by Samuel Johnson, “All travel has its advantage, if the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve on his own and if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it.” And Fiibians learn to enjoy and we all had a fun filled educational trip to Dubai.
To summarize Dubai trip was a milkshake with key ingredients of Learning and fun.
