This trip to the United Arab Emirates takes you across Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and the desert. The Arabian peninsula combines an ultra modern business center and Asian hospitality. As the United Arab Emirates is the gateway to Asia, the country does its utmost to receive you with open arms. With many luxury hotels, a wide variety of excellent restaurants, large shopping centers, a towering level of service and of course the warm weather, it is a great place for a wonderful holiday. It is not without reason that Dubai has a seven-star hotel.

But there is much more: music shows with world-famous artists are the order of the day here. Both Dubai and Abu Dhabi have an enormous water park and with famous museums like the Guggenheim and Louvre, Abu Dhabi can also be called a real culture city. With a wide range of activities, you will not be bored soon. Water sports, skydiving, flying a sports plane or a desert safari, the sky is the limit.

During this trip you will visit all highlights of the United Arab Emirates. Sleep under the stars in the desert, visit Qasr Al Watan and be astonished by the great Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi.

Itinerary

Flight to Dubai, United Arab Emirates including airport transfer

Today you fly to the United Arab Emirates. Depending on your chosen flight you will arrive the same day or the day after. When you have collected your luggage from the baggage claim, you will be welcomed by a local representative of Arabescape.com and brought to your hotel.

Dubai optional city tour

Your first day in Dubai is about to begin! Today you can relax at your hotel or at the beach. If you prefer to go out you can also explore the city. We recommend a visit to the Marina, the city’s most pleasant pedestrian zone. Witnessing the fountain show at the Burj Khalifa will be an impressive start of your stay. When the night falls, there are two places we recommend for dinner. At Thai Kitchen they serve the best Thai cuisine, and at Zeta you dine under the light of the Burj Khalifa. Both very much worth the visit.

Dubai

This is your second day in Dubai, perhaps the ideal moment to take advantage of the many exceptional activities you can enjoy here. You can do water sports such as jet skiing, water skiing or fly-boarding. Besides water sports you can also visit the mainland with a desert safari. When you drive over the dunes with a jeep, you can also go quad biking, sand-boarding and much more. In the afternoon we can arrange a High Tea in the Burj Al Arab, Dubai’s only seven star hotel.

There is more. It is also possible to fly over the city with a seaplane (45 min) and for the adrenaline seekers it is possible to go skydiving from the same seaplane above the Palm Island.

Dubai - Al Ain pick up rental car

You leave Dubai behind and travel further inland. In the morning you will pick up the rental car near the hotel and make your way to Al Ain. Al Ain is better known as the “green city” because of the green vegetation of the oases and date plantations. The nature and tranquility shows the contrast between Al Ain and the hustling city Dubai.

In Al Ain you can visit many archaeological sites and the city itself is even listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can also visit the oases or the camel race track, where you can enter not only the stage but also the stables and the course.

Al Ain - Rub al Khali desert

After one night in the mountainous landscape of Al Ain, you continue your way to the extensive Rub al Khali desert for the night. This will be a three hour drive. After arrival you will check in at your accommodation.

Rub al Khali desert

You will spend all day in the desert. In the morning you have some time to relax, in the afternoon you will be picked up by a guide for a desert safari. This evening you will have dinner under the stars with the local Bedouins.

Rub al Khali desert - Abu Dhabi

After your adventure in the desert it is time to travel to Abu Dhabi for the last few days of your trip. You exchange silence and peace for the hustle and bustle of another major city. Abu Dhabi is a bit more quiet than Dubai but still has numerous unique attractions. Visit the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, one of the world’s largest mosques. We recommend to visit the mosque at sunset for a fairy tale setting.

Abu Dhabi optional city tour

Today is your first full day in the capital of the Emirates. You can choose to relax but there are also plenty of fun activities to do in Abu Dhabi. Visit the Louvre and the Al Qasr Watan palace. The Al Qasr Watan palace was opened to the public in 2019 and many official state matters still take place here. Stroll around the cornice or having a delicious lunch at the Emirates Palace.

Abu Dhabi

Today you can make a trip to the Nature Reserve of Sir Banvis Island. The Rotana Jet Service makes it possible to fly to the island from Abu Dhabi in 20 minutes. It is an admirable nature reserve where different animal species live. In the evening you will return to Abu Dhabi.

You can also choose to visit Ferrari World on Yas Island today. In addition, there are numerous shopping centers where you will feel completely at home if you are a shopping enthusiast.

Abu Dhabi - Dubai - flight back home hand in rental car

Your round trip ends today. You will return to the airport where you will hand in your rental car. Depending on your flight this can be either Abu Dhabi or Dubai airport. Hopefully you have enjoyed your trip.
