Abu Dhabi Stopover Special

4 Days
Prices From:
US$ 787

Escape to the sands on an Abu Dhabi vacation and explore the capital of the United Arab Emirates. Survey Abu Dhabi’s emerging luxury before touring its traditional souks and historical sites like Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and heading on a desert safari to a Bedouin camp where you’ll dine on a sand dune beneath the stars.

This 4-day Abu Dhabi vacation package takes you to the capital of the United Arab Emirates, where you’ll explore historical sites and enjoy a desert safari just outside the city.

Although it’s the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi has long existed in the shadow of Dubai and its towering monoliths like the Burj Khalifa. However, the city is beginning to reassert itself and show off its metropolitan wonders. Head to the spectacular waterfront for a taste of the luxury hotels and beaches that rival Dubai’s before heading to the traditional souks to experience what the city was like before the rise of modern finance and the oil boom. No Abu Dhabi vacation packages are complete without a visit to Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the country’s chief site of worship. It’s a stunning example of Islamic architecture and contains the worlds’ largest hand-loomed carpet in its main hall.

After exploring Abu Dhabi, take a desert safari to the sand dunes outside the city. Visit a camel farm and experience some hallmarks of Bedouin culture, like smoking shisha or enjoying Arabic coffee in a comfortable Bedouin tent. When the sun sets, enjoy a barbeque out on the sand dunes. As the sun fades beneath the horizon and the night winds start blowing over the dunes, you’ll realize you’re experiencing an once-in-a-lifetime evening.

This Abu Dhabi vacation is an excellent add-on to other explorations of Africa and the Middle East.
