This trip to the United Arab Emirates takes you across Dubai, Al Ain and Abu Dhabi. The Arabian Peninsula provides a combination of 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 is the only city with a seven-star hotel.

The round trip starts in tourist hotspot Dubai. A place where you can wander around the splendor of the new world. After Dubai you travel towards the much quieter and greener city Al Ain.  Because of the six green oases situated here, the old city earned a spot on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. Here you will also find the tombs of Bidaa Bint Saud, Hafeet and Hili. After this cultural break, you continue to Abu Dhabi where you can enjoy the wonderful beaches and many restaurants.

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

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 Optional flight over the city

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 - Abu Dhabi

From Al Ain you travel to Abu Dhabi for the last part of your trip. You exchange silence and peace for the hustle and bustle of the city. Abu Dhabi is a bit more quiet than Dubai but still has a numerous unique attractions. Take the Sheikh Zayed Mosque for example, one of the world’s largest mosques. We recommend to visit the mosque at sunset for a fairytale 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. You can 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 Optional tour Sir Banvis Island

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.
