ICE SKATING??? You go all the way to the Middle East and go Ice Skating??? ICE SKATING???

Well, actually it was quite a lot of fun, and the ice-rink inside the Hyatt Regency offers a great escape from the unbearable heat. The ice rink is located in the center of the Galleria Shopping Mall on the ground floor of the Hyatt, so even if you don't skate yourself, it's a great place to drop off the kids and get some serious shopping done.

Sidenote: Ash tries to cheat in ice-skating races!!!!

Other sidenote: it takes aprx. 3 - 5 months for the pain of a bruised hip-bone to go away!

Equipment: Skates can be rented right there for aprx. 25 dhs. ( ~ $ 5.--); other than that - no special equipment required. Just wear comfortable clothing you can move in.

Open: Saturday to Thursday, 10:00 am to 1:30 pm, 2:00 pm to 5:30 pm, 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Closed: 8:00 pm on Fridays and public holidays
