3rd of February it was and we board a flight to the city of skyscrapers i.e. DUBAI. Dubai being famous for its nightlife is one of the seven emirates of UAE consisting of lot of desert and coastal areas. We went there as a part of our Business Study Tour included in the course curriculum here at FIIB. It was a much awaited trip with lots of first time experiences from boarding a flight to visiting Burj Khalifa(world’s tallest building) and many more.
We entered into the city of DUBAI, outside the airport the bus of our tour operator was waiting to take us to our hotel i.e. Rushin Hotel. The whole of the city is being constructed on the desert and is full of plenty of skyscrapers. The centre of attraction for all of us was these skyscrapers and the luxurious cars dancing on the roads of Dubai. The roads there were beautifully constructed just like the roads that I have previously seen only in a virtual game i.e. ‘Need For Speed’. Thereafter going through the streets of Dubai we reached our hotel where rooms were allotted to us in the pair of two. Room no-414 was allotted to me and as soon as I took the glimpse of my room my eyes popped out, what a beautiful room it was with very wonderful infrastructure and view. The balcony was such from where I can look the cars running on the road. I loved the view and the room.
Thereafter, while taking a rest for some time, we went for a view of the market just outside our hotel i.e. ‘Meena Bazaar’. The next day was our first industrial tour organized for us. All of us was taken to DUBAL(Dubai Aluminium) factory located at the outskirts of the city Dubai. The organization is the world’s largest producer of Aluminium and is also famous for its quality of products. After that we went again to our hotel and changed for entering into our land cruisers which were standing for taking us to the Desert Safari. After the roller coaster ride in the deserts of Dubai we went for a belly dancing show and dinner which was organised following the Arabian culture and tradition.
On the following day, another industrial visit to RAK-ceramics was conducted where we were taught about the operations conducted in making tiles in the factory and also we were briefed about the marketing strategies followed by the firm and how RAK- ceramics differentiates from its competitors. The evening was again full of enjoyment with dinner organised for us on the cruise. The evening again was full of dinner, dance and fun on the cruise. It was a very beautiful evening and the city was looking amazing from the cruise.
At the last, the tour operator organised a city tour for us where we went to the mall in DUBAI along with the visit Jumairah beach followed by the visit at the world tallest skyscraper (Burj Khalifa).The view from the burj was beautiful, everyone was feeling at the top of the world. Next day we board the flight for India. The trip was full of entertainment along with lots of learning about the culture, environment and working behavior there at Dubai.
