Going on a package tour means you travel with a group of people according to the schedule. Often you can see and visit many places without worrying extra expense... But you have less free time.
Still I made the most of opportunity to have sketching.
Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi ( five minutes sketch done while we were given 8 minutes to take photo of it)
A shop assistant in the Dubai Mall, Dubai. He offered me some sample tasting of tea. He said that he is from the Philippines.
Inside the Dubai Mall. To see those Emirati people in this huge mall in their folk clothes mede me feel as if I see prince or princess ( characters) in a palace (of dream world)
After desert safari, I saw belly dance show.
And a spinning dancer.
I drew a shop assistant in the spice souk after I tried one clothing and bought it during 20 minutes of given free time there.
On our way back to our hotel, I did this tour guide sketch in the bus.
Burj Khalifa, the world tallest skyscraper. I drew this before sun set near the station called Business Bay. I guess it must be a business district.
This day, we had free time until 16:00.
I went to the Mall of Emirates early in the morning. This is another huge mall. It was so lovely to walk around, to see workers preparing to open their shops and of course to shop there.
Jumeirah Beach Hotel seen on the premisses of Burj Al Arab.
I did this after I had buffet lunch in a restaurant in Burj Al Arab.
Burj Al Arab( so called seven-star hotel) I had a once in a life time lunch.
Although I had Arabian food every day, I didn't make any food sketch. I so indulged in just eating this time.
