We highly recommend setting some time aside to visit one of the Heritage Centres, where you will be given an introduction into the traditional Emirati lifestyle, including customs, traditions, professions and local craftsmanship. A trip to the Heritage Village in Dubai is a great opportunity to get to know the different styles of traditional local life ranging from coastal, desert and mountain life with many types of buildings made of stone, palm fronds and tents on display as well as shops selling traditional local items.

Away from the soft, white sandy beaches, you will find that there is an abundance of sights to see and things to do. A visit to the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building and Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping complex tops the list for most visitors, but there are so many other incredible experiences to take in that good planning is a must. The Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain Zoo, Ski Dubai, Dubai Creek, the Gold Souk, Dubai Canal and the Palm are just a few of the more popular land-based attractions. On the water, your choices include Dhow Cruising, Deep Sea Fishing, Sunset Cruises and a whole host of watersports, including Jet Skiing, Paddle Boarding, Flyboarding and Kite Surfing. Wondering if there is much to do away from the beach? Think again!

Desert Experiences

The spectacular desert scenery is a playground for a broad range of activities, including camel riding, sand skiing, dune driving, exploration of wadis and visits to selected oases and forts. One box you must tick though is a desert safari, where your afternoon hotel pick - in a private or shared 4WD vehicle - will take you out to the desert for an unforgettable Arabian experience. Upon reaching the dunes, you will enjoy an exhilarating drive marveling at how easily your professional driver ushers the car up one side and almost surfs down the other! It’s not as easy as it looks, but it is great fun. After you have had enough of this excitement, get your cameras ready to capture a magnificent desert sunset before heading to your Bedouin Camp or Fort, where Ladies can have an intricate henna design expertly applied to their hands and feet and the Gents can try to master sandskiing. Camel and horse rides are also available as is the opportunity to grab a selfie with a Falcon! It’s then time to settle down for a delicious BBQ dinner with traditional belly and Tanoura dancing before heading back to your hotel in awe of the beauty that is our desert.

If you are willing to wake up nice and early, another great way to experience the desert is by Hot Air Balloon. It’s a very different perspective to dune driving, but certainly no less exhilarating.

After a relaxing day on the beach or a thrilling day at one of the Theme Parks, why not take in a world class show, concert, Ballet or Opera at one of the many theatre, music and concert venues in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Dubai even has its own Opera House and recently the spectacular La Perle Aquatheatre opened its doors. La Perle's mysterious storyline, incredibly talented performers and one-of-a-kind stage concept is making major waves as the city's very first in-residence theatre show. International acts are now a permanent fixture of the UAE Arts scene so it is worth checking out live performances during your visit.
