Dubai is one of the 7 emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates. It is rather like an independent city-state and is the most modern and progressive emirate in the UAE, developing at an unbelievable pace in the tourist and trade sectors especially.

The second largest of the 7 Emirates, Dubai city is a bustling metropolis, while outside the city itself the Emirate is sparsely inhabited and characterized by desert vegetation.

Take a memorable evening cruise along Dubai Creek on board a traditional wooden dhow. Cruise by the stunning illuminated skyline, offering sights of traditional and modern architecture. See water taxis, old trading dhows, luxury yachts and modern architecture, such as the National Bank of Dubai, Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Sheikh Saeed's House, and Heritage Village.

Proceed along Jumeirah Road, passing by the Dry Docks, Historical Union House, the beautiful Jumeirah Mosque, the Burj Al Arab - the world’s tallest 7-star hotel - and the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa.

In the afternoon, you will go on a thrilling desert drive over the golden sand dunes of the Emirate, deep into the heart of the desert. Arrive at a traditional Arabic desert camp and enjoy the authentic ambiance of a typical Bedouin campsite, with traditional Arabian carpets, low tables and cushions for comfortable seating.
