Day 1: Arrive in Dubai

Welcome to Dubai! Upon arrival at Dubai International Airport you will be met by your Sky Vacations ambassador who will assist you with your private transfer to your hotel.

Day 2: Dubai City Tour

After breakfast at your hotel, you will proceed to a city tour of Dubai focusing on architecture and design. Drive down towards the Bastakia area – the oldest part of the city to see the Wind Towers which served as air-conditioners in bygone days. The narrow lanes of Dubai’s Bastakiya district are home to art galleries, breezy cafes and authentic Arabic restaurants.

Next visit will be the Dubai Museum housed in the 150-years old Al Fahidi Fort. In the Museum, we will see interesting artefacts, which throw light on Dubai’s historical links with trading and the pearl diving. Guests will then enjoy a ride across the famed Dubai creek in a local water taxi which is called “Abra” to see the bustling activities on the waterfront and move on to the Deira side of Dubai. Visit Dubai Design District that has been developed through careful consultation with the design community to provide a creative ecosystem that surpasses the expectations of a typical creative neighbourhood. D3 forges the inspiring, authentic, and relevant ideas shaping Dubai’s future as a leading destination of design, art, and culture. It has its own beating heart, its own spirit and its own very personal style. D3 is home to the region’s growing community of creative thinkers. It is being built as part of the Dubai Plan 2021 using the Smart City principles which offer digital connectivity to create an innovation-led economy.

This evening, enjoy some shopping therapy with a visit to the Dubai Mall followed by a visit to the world famous Burj Khalifa Observation Deck located on the 124th floor of the tallest building in the world.

Day 3: Dubai City Tour

This morning continue with the Dubai city tour after breakfast at your hotel. Visit the Dubai Frame, UAE’s latest cultural landmark that ‘frames’ impressive views of Old and New Dubai, while serving as a metaphorical bridge connecting the emirate’s rich past with its magnificent present. Offering spectacular panoramic views across the city, Dubai Frame celebrates the story of Dubai from its early establishment to its ambitious plans for future development. Drive towards the Burj Al Arab (outside visit only), the luxury hotel built on a manmade island, where you will pause for photographs. Driving by the Dubai marina your journey will then continue to the Palm Island to appreciate one of our modern era’s most remarkable feats of engineering. Each settlement is in the shape of a palm tree, topped with a crescent, and has a large number of residential, leisure and entertainment centres. This after our suggested lunch stop is at Atlantis the Palm.

This evening we proceed to Abu Dhabi starting with a photo stop at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. Continue to visit the breath-taking Sheikh Zayed Mosque that is the largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates.

Day 4: Abu Dhabi City Tour

This morning continue with city tour of Abu Dhabi. The tour offers an ideal introduction to the heritage and culture of Abu Dhabi city. Begin with a visit to Qasr Al Watan. More than just a palace, Qasr Al Watan is an enriching interactive journey in a contemporary setting that reveals and reflects on governance, knowledge and craftsmanship.  The visitor experience at Qasr Al Watan is an inspiring and educational tour of Emirati and Arabian excellence. Here, visitors will learn about the principles that have propelled traditional Arabian design to remarkable status.

Continue to Etihad Towers Observatory Deck. Located on level 74 of Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, Observation Deck at 300 is the highest vantage point in Abu Dhabi where visitors can soak in the uninterrupted birds-eye perspective of the city’s skyline, the Corniche, and Arabian Gulf. Drive to see the Heritage Village which houses a small museum and depicts the daily activities of the Arab community prior to the discovery of oil. Guests will pass by Emirates Palace for a brief photo stop from outside. Suggested lunch stop this afternoon is at Marina Mall. This evening is a visit to Louvre Abu Dhabi. The Louvre Abu Dhabi is an art and civilization museum, located in Abu Dhabi. The museum was inaugurated on 8 November 2017 by French President Emmanuel Macron and United Arab Emirates Vice President Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. It is approximately 24,000 square metres in size, with 8,000 square metres of galleries, making it the largest art museum in the Arabian Peninsula. Artworks from around the world are showcased at the museum, with particular focus placed upon bridging the gap between Eastern and Western art.
