Rising like a shimmering mirage from the desert, and shining like a futuristic beacon of modernity over the Arabian Gulf, Dubai is a city that can truly be described as magical. This full-day tour is the perfect way to discover and enjoy the magical highlights of this amazing, incredible city.
Dubai is a city in which bold, magnificent skyscrapers, daring modern architecture and luxurious opulence abound – encompassing both decadent Western consumerism and traditional Islamic sensibilities to create a distinctive cultural mix found nowhere else on earth. It offers a compelling blend of the modern and the ancient, making the city one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Middle East. This tour reveals some of the unmissable highlights of Dubai.
Dubai is, of course, a shopper's paradise – but it's not all about the gleaming modern malls. The first stop of the day is at a more traditional retail site – the famous Gold Souk. This is a bustling market, bursting with energy from its hundreds of traders selling a vast range of traditional and modern gold jewellery – from necklaces and rings to bracelets and brooches. Dubai is, in fact, one of the best places in the world to buy gold, so this is a great opportunity to pick up something special at a bargain price. On our tour, we will also visit a number of other popular markets in the area, selling a vast variety of goods from fresh fruit and vegetables to spices, perfume and silk.
Bastakiya in Old Dubai is our next stop, offering an intriguing chance to step back in time and see the city as it once was. You will see the traditional wind towers which were used to cool courtyard houses in an era before electricity and air conditioning. Take this chance to walk the old, narrow alleyways and gain a fascinating glimpse into the history and culture of the area, before we move on to Dubai History Museum and the exquisite Jumeirah Mosque.
Your magical tour of Dubai ends in style with lunch at Burj Al Arab, one of the world's most luxurious and a true icon of modern Dubai.
