Explore the surprising and opulent city of Dubai on this short trip
A city like no other, Dubai is the story of the little fishing village that could, and of a city that has made it big – at least as far as opulence and grandeur is concerned. Discover man-made islands sculpted into the shapes of palms and a tower so high it is almost a kilometre tall. Explore the heritage area of Bastakiya, wander the spice and gold souqs, and see more supercars in one day than you’re likely to see in a year as you walk the streets of this desert town.
Discover a centuries-old fortification at the Al Fahidi Fort
Walk the wide, clean city streets as you gaze in awe at the vast array of skyscrapers
Learn about the history of Dubai with a visit to the Bastakiya district’s Dubai Museum.
Wander the colourful Gold & Spice Souk with a local guide.
Travel across Dubai Creek in a traditional 'Abra'.
Experience Bedouin culture with a desert safari adventure.
