UAE – where the comforts of Western life meet the taste of the exotic

During the last couple of decades, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) diversified and became a regional trading and tourism hub. The United Arab Emirates are home to immigrants from all over the world. Thus this country is as diverse as its cities and inhabitants. While Dubai boasts designer shops, gorgeous beaches and impressive hotels, other parts of the country are famous for their atmospheric heritage. This tour captures the highlights of the fabulous UAE!

After arriving in Dubai, unwind and relax before embarking on a sightseeing tour the next day. This tour will include the historical Al Fahidi Fort,  the Jumeirah Mosque and the futuristic Atlantis Palm Hotel Dubai. Additionally, see the unofficial symbol of Dubai, the Hotel Burj Al Arab. The tour will take the group to The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping mall which is renowned for its aquarium. The tour will continue to the UNESCO Cultural City of the Arab World, Sharjah, also known as the “Pearl of the Gulf”.

Furthermore, the tour will take the group to the sand dunes of Hatta to admire the stunning scenery and sunset, where there’s the opportunity to take ride a camel. The next day, visit Abu Dhabi, the Federal capital city of the Emirates. The tour includes sights such as the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, the shimmering skyscrapers alongside palaces and the famous Marina Mall.
