United Arab Emirates Bucket List Travel Ideas


  • Jumeirah Palm Island

Why is UAE considered a top bucket list destination?

The UAE is a fairly new destination experience, and it brings with it a truly Middle Eastern sense of hospitality and the comforts of modern facilities. Dubai and Abu Dhabi boast some of the World’s largest buildings and mosques, along with international architecture that is sure to amaze.  It is an area with money to spare, with cars, theme parks and man made islands that delight visitors year after year.  The shopping is legendary, so much so that they have an international festival dedicated to shopping that lasts for a month!!!  With Royal Sheikhs and Sheikha’s palaces only minutes away from where you are staying in some cases, this fairytale world will certainly delight.

What are the top bucket list activities on a UAE vacation?

While there are so many activities to do in the Emirates, some of the most popular Bucket list items include:  The Burj Khalifa, the World’s Tallest Building and one of it’s many floors open to the public, The Burj Al Arab for Afternoon High Tea in the legendary 7* hotel, tour of the Palm Jumeirah, the man-made islands formed in the shape of a palm tree, Desert Jeep Safari or Dune Buggy Driving one the desert dunes in the afternoon of fun and adventure.
