Arrive in Dubai – Half-Day City Tour & Dhow Cruise
On your arrival at the Dubai International Airport, you will be
escorted to your hotel by our representative. Check-in at the
hotel, 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 7star
hotel. From here you head off to the man made 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, 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.
