Dubai Shopping Tour
From glitzy malls to supermarkets, local bazaars and buzzing streets, Dubai boasts of a wide array of shopping options. Shopaholics can buy things like carpets, gold jewellery, traditional perfumes, handicrafts, spices and souvenirs from these places. Some of the city's plush shopping arcades are Burjuman Centre, Deira City Centre, Jumeirah Plaza, Dubai Mall, Festival Centre and Wafi Mall. Shopping in Dubai is not only about opulent malls, it also has many souks or marketplaces that offer many traditional things at reasonable prices. Tourists can buy souvenirs, leather goods, clothes, sports equipment and knick-knacks from these markets.
Duration : 04 Nights / 05 Days
Day 01: Arrive in Dubai
On your arrival at the Dubai International Airport, you will be escorted to your hotel by our representative. Check-in at the hotel, relax and spend the rest of the day at leisure. Head out of the hotel in the evening and check out the malls. If you want an authentic Emirati experience, visit one of the many souks of Bur Dubai. Also nearby is the historic Bastakia Quarter which is famous for its restored traditional houses and wind towers.
Day 02: Half-day City Tour & Dhow Cruise
After a filling breakfast you will embark on a half day tour of the city. The tour takes you to the Bur Dubai Creek, Spice market. You can stop for a photo-Stop with the Burj al-Arab, the world's only 7 star hotel. From here you head off to the manmade Palm Island and its crowning glory, the Atlantis the Palm Hotel. The high point of the tour is definitely the spotlessly white Jumeirah Mosque. Please note that you should not wear shorts, back and arms should be covered and women need to cover their heads with a headscarf. In this tour you will also visit old Arabian houses with their traditional architecture. In the evening you will proceed for a Dhow cruise on the Dubai Creek. Dhows are traditional Arabic sailboats that have remained virtually unchanged for centuries. The cruise offers a very different sight of Dubai. On one side is Deira, which was, for all practical purposes, the entire city of Dubai till the 1990's. On the other side is the modern Dubai with its wide roads and ultra-tall skyscrapers. Dinner (buffet) will be on board the dhow. After the dinner and cruise you will be free to retire to the hotel.
Day 03: The Desert Safari Experience
Have a hearty breakfast you could relax in your hotel as you have the morning at leisure. In the afternoon, you begin your Desert Safari. You are transported to the desert. Sit back and enjoy how the vehicles climb the sand dunes effortlessly. Dune-bashing, if you will! Watch the sun go down over the horizon from atop the highest sand dune. The orange sunset also makes the perfect backdrop for many memorable family photographs. If the swanky vehicle seems too modern, take a camel ride. You can also indulge in a spot of henna design and sheesha. A barbecue dinner will be served under a starlit Arabian sky while a belly dancer entertains you with her sultry moves. As the wonderful evening comes to an end, you are transported back to your hotel for the night.
Day 04: Day at Leisure (Optional - BurjKhalifa)
Today, after breakfast, you have the rest of the day at leisure. However, we suggest that you take this opportunity to visit BurjKhalifa, the tallest building in the world. Call it impressive or preposterous, there's no denying that BurjKhalifa is a ground-breaking feat of architecture and engineering. The world's tallest building pierces the sky at 828m (seven times the height of Big Ben) and opened on 4 January 2010, only six years after excavations began. Up to 13,000 workers toiled day and night, at times putting up a new floor in as little as three days. The main attraction is the Observation Deck 'At the Top' on the 124th floor. From such lofty heights you can easily pinpoint The World, the three Palm developments and other landmarks. Getting there takes you past various multimedia exhibits to a double-deck lift that whisks you 10m per second for an entire minute to reach level 124 at a lofty 442m in the air. At the end of the tour, return to your hotel for overnight stay.
