Select Date and Travellers

Discover the different faces of glittering Dubai on a day trip from Abu Dhabi. Travel to the neighboring emirate by air-conditioned vehicle and explore its fascinating history, culture and spectacular 21st-century architecture, all in one go. Ogle top Dubai attractions such as the astonishing Burj Khalifa, Burj Al-Arab and the Palm Jumeirah, ride an ‘abra’ water taxi across Dubai Creek, and visit Dubai Museum to uncover the city’s past. Plus, peruse the gleaming shops of the Gold Souk, roam the aromatic Spice Souk, and enjoy free time for lunch at glitzy Dubai Mall.
  • Experience Dubai’s highlights in a day from Abu Dhabi
  • See the Burj Khalifa, the Palm, and Burj Al Arab with guided commentary
  • Fully rounded tour: Visit Dubai Museum and shop at Dubai Mall and souks
  • Coach travel, entry fees, and hotel pickup and drop-off included
What to Expect
Depart your central Abu Dhabi hotel by air-conditioned coach and journey through the desert to Dubai. After roughly 90 minutes, arrive and head to Dubai's palm-tree-shaped island of Palm Jumeirah. Take in the island’s huge Atlantis hotel before traveling to Jumeirah Beach for stunning views of the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab hotel. Then, stop to marvel at the Burj Khalifa, the world’s highest tower at 2,716 feet (828 meters), before visiting Dubai Mall, the vast shopping center set below it. Enjoy free time for shopping and lunch (own expense) here before exploring Dubai Museum and crossing Dubai Creek on a public abra (wooden boat) to delve into Deira’s souks. Get bartering tips from your guide at the Gold Souk and wander through the Spice Souk, passing stalls piled with spices, herbs, sweets, and nuts. Your day concludes with a drop-off at your Abu Dhabi hotel.
