There maybe is no greater example of human perseverance and expertise than this oasis of development, history, architecture and culture. Grandiose words but for Dubai very true! Glitzy, glamorous, way over-the-top and maybe a little overexposed, Dubai lives on for attention. Here, I have devised a seven day itinerary for you, covering the ins and outs of the flamboyant city.
Upon arrival and met at the airport, you will start your safari viewing the old town, starting at the Dubai Musuem where you can learn about the history of Dubai and the plans to turn it into a modern tourist orientated city. Follow this up with a trip to the nearby fort and the Jumeirah Mosque for a taste of how the city used to be. Dinner and overnight at the hotel
Morning breakfast, time for a bit of luxury at the Atlantis resort on the Palm Jumeirah Island. Enjoy the spa and if you have kids they can go to the Aqua venture waterpark there where they can enjoy the many slides and the jungle river. Dinner and overnight at the hotel
In the morning after breakfast, you can go deep sea fishing and try to catch the likes of flounder, bass, barracuda and small sharks. Tasty! In the evening, head over to the world famous Burj Khalifa where you can wonder at the sheer height and scale of this stupendous building. Enjoy dinner at the base where you can watch the fun fountain show set to music.
Early morning breakfast, get out of Dubai and go on a day and night desert trip. Here, you will get a jeep ride through the dunes, eat some local food and be entertained by traditional dances. All this, plus the chance to see the stars on a clear desert night. Dinner and overnight at the hotel
One of the favourite pastimes for the rich and famous is Dubai is to go shopping at one of the large malls in town. After breakfast we recommend you go shopping at the Mall of Emirates where you can tackle the indoor ski slope before flexing the muscle of your credit card at the many designer shops and boutiques. Dinner and overnight at the hotel
After breakfast, this day you can enjoy your day by taking a sailing trip into nearby Oman. On your trip, you should get the chance to fish and then snorkel in the clear waters where you might be lucky enough to spot a mantra ray. Dinner and overnight at the hotel
After early breakfast. Check out and you will be picked at the hotel to proceed to the airport to take your flight back to your country.
