After pickup from your Ras Al Khaimah hotel, hop aboard your climate-controlled vehicle and travel south through Sharjah toward Dubai.
As you travel, hear information about the region from your guide and on arrival, set out on a panoramic drive around modern Dubai’s highlights.
Pose for photos by the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab, and gaze at the vast Atlantis The Palm hotel, rising from the man-made, palm-shaped Palm Jumeirah island.
Next, make tracks into old Dubai, straddling Dubai Creek. View the mud-built wind tower houses at Al Fahidi, the city’s oldest quarter, and visit Dubai Museum, set inside 18th-century Al Fahidi fort.
View the photos, artifacts, and recreations of Bedouin life, charting Dubai’s story from its times as a port on trade routes between the Indus Valley and Mesopotamia. Discover how the roots of modern Dubai first emerged in the 1830s, and how it transformed from a small fishing port into today’s metropolis.
Following a photo stop at Dubai Creek, ride a wooden abra boat across the waters to Deira’s Spice and Gold Markets. Experience the aromas and colors of the spice stalls, and enjoy free time to shop for bargains at the glittering gold outlets.
Take a break for a delicious buffet lunch at a hotel restaurant, and then drive along the skyscraper-lined Sheikh Zayed Road to downtown Dubai. One of the city’s newest hotspots, this area is home to the Burj Khalifa, the world’s highest tower, Dubai Mall, and the Burj Lake.
Catch a high-speed lift to the At The Top observatory on Burj Khalifa's 124th floor, and soak in the spectacular bird’s-eye views from the viewing windows.
Back at ground level, watch a stunning early-evening Dubai Fountain Show on Burj Lake, and then transfer back to Ras Al Khaimah, where your trip concludes with a hotel drop-off.
