After breakfast, begin your tour of Dubai. First up - Old Dubai for walking tour through the unique narrow sikkas and beautiful wind tower residences along the Dubai Creek as you learn the history and culture of Dubai and the UAE. Visit the Al Fahidi Fort which houses the Dubai Museum. The Fort was built around 1787 and once guarded the landward approaches to the town. Renovated in 1971 for use as a museum, its colourful life size dioramas vividly depict everyday life in the days before the discovery of oil.
Next up, cross creek by traditional boats called Abra's to reach the souk - which is the Arabic word, which stands for the market or place where any kind of goods are brought or exchanged. Traditionally, Arabic shipping vessels discharge their cargos on the docks, which would be bargained over in the souks adjacent. Times have changed since then as Dubai Spice Souk have given way to air-conditioned multi-storied shopping malls and items on sale have changed from spices, silks and Ittar (Arabic Perfume) to latest electronic gizmos, gold and designer apparels. Gold is serious business in this part of the world and the dazzling souk. The gold souk, or gold market, is a truly dazzling sight to behold. At any given time, over 25 tons of gold is on display in Dubai's jewelry shop windows and it has earned Dubai a reputation for being the 'City of Gold'.
Return via Zabeel Road passing by the Palace of Sheikh Mohammad, as well as the Rashid Palace, home to the Royal family of Dubai (No Photography here please). Next, drive past the Jumeirah mosque which can be viewed from outside. It is one of the largest, most beautiful of Dubai's Mosque and a prominent landmark of the city. We continue to drive along Jumeirah beach to get a glimpse of Burj Al Arab hotel stopping for photos outside.
The final stop for the day is The Burj Khalifa. Throughout your journey, you will be entertained and informed by a multi-media presentation that chronicles Dubai's exotic history and the fascinating story of Burj Khalifa. Leave the reception area aboard the 65-metre-long travellator on a trip that transports you through time, from the earliest days of Dubai to the present. Pause briefly at a unique viewing point for your first close-up view of the soaring Burj Khalifa, seen through a skylight framing its awe-inspiring height. Begin your vertical ascent to the observation deck in a high-speed elevator, travelling at 10 meters per second. As the doors open, floor-to-ceiling glass walls provide e a breath-taking unobstructed 360-degree view of the city, the desert and the ocean. You can also walk the entire perimeter for the most comprehensive views. If you wish, venture out onto the open-air terrace to enjoy another perspective of the sweeping views below.
Return from visit of Burj Khalifa to spend some time at Dubai Mall before returning to your hotel.
After breakfast, meet your guide at the hotel lobby at approximately 08:00 am to begin our tour of the capital and largest emirate of the United Arab Emirates - Abu Dhabi.

Built on a natural sand island, the emirate includes a number of offshore islands and vast expanses of desert. The city is renowned for its lush greenery, planned development and beautiful cornice, fine beaches and coral reefs.
Your tour begins with visit to The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the third largest mosque in the world. Visitors are requested to dress conservatively and not to touch the Holy Quran (Holy Book) and other architectural elements inside the main prayer hall.
Next, continue to the Corniche area and drive past the coastal highline of Abu Dhabi where our visit will include Heritage Village, situated on a 1600 sq. meter site overlooking the Cornice. Here you can experience the past traditional life in Abu Dhabi, before oil revenues altered the landscape, economically and socially. In addition to Bedouin tents, there are reconstructions of palm (Arish) and other houses, old fishing villages and traditional Souqs. Continue to drive along the Corniche for photostop of Emirates Palace from a vantage point before proceeding to Dates market to get the best bargains.
After visiting the Corniche area, continue the tour with the newly opened Louvre Abu Dhabi - the first museum of its kind in the Arab world. The Louvre is a universal museum that is a cultural beacon, bringing together different cultures to shine fresh light on the shared stories of humanity. Designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, this museum-city features promenades overlooking the sea beneath the museum's 180-metre diameter dome, composed of almost 8,000 unique metal stars set in a complex geometric pattern.
