Dhow Dinner Cruise, Dubai



Imagine yourself cruising in the chilly night of Dubai, in the open air upper deck of a wooden dhow, under the moonlight with live music, Arabian entertainment, sweet conversation and a hearty international buffet dinner. What could be better than that? What is Dubai trip without enjoying their famous dhow dinner cruise?

My Dubai based friend made sure we tried this dinner cruise and I am glad we did. Except that it is really difficult to predict Dubai weather early March, and we had a super chilly night! brrrrrr!! But we won't allow experiencing the cruise inside the air-conditioned lower deck, nah... it's not the same ambiance when you're on the upper deck. So I'd rather enjoy the open deck in spite of the cold weather than spoil the experience.

Night photography wasn't easy even if we are cruising at a low speed, it is just so difficult to get a good night shot without a sturdy tripod. So pardon me for sharing just a few shots:

the amazing view:

And of course the company (with my friend and her mom):

  3. These are nice scenes in Dubai for a dinner cruise. Among the places I visited, I got to cruise in Saigon and Paris and it was nice to see the views too.
