What is there to see in a tour down the highway?
I'd just like to ascertain what the point is of Dubai's open-top bus tour?
I drive down SZR to work most days and it’s quite often I’ll see one of these buses full of tourists with their cameras. What is there possibly to see anywhere along SZR?! It’s loud and noisy and you’re more than likely to be emptying sand from every orifice by the end.
Showing tourists the Burj Khalifa, understandable. Dubai creek area, fine. Downtown area, sure. Whatever floats your boat.
But beyond that, I just can’t see the point of driving a load of tourists in a double decker up and down a six-lane highway to see industrial units, car showrooms and overpriced villas. Not exactly ‘sight-seeing’ material.
