Sunday 23rd February

Today we depart for our holiday to the United Arab Emirates where we’ll land in Dubai for the first part of the holiday.

Overnight in Dubai.

Monday 24th February

Dubai is a huge city, and to get orientated, we’ll enjoy a guided tour that takes us past sights such as the 7* Burj Al Arab, the Dubai Marina, Atlantis The Palm and Dubai Museum. We’ll also visit the Gold Souk and the Spice Souk to see the contrast between modern and traditional Dubai. In the afternoon, your time is spent at leisure so go and explore this wonderful city some more as there’s plenty here!

Breakfast included. Overnight in Dubai.

Tuesday 25th February

Spend this morning at leisure in Dubai. There’s lots to do – maybe you want to go up the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa? How about getting in some serious shopping at Dubai Mall where there are over 1200 shops, a huge indoor waterfall and even an ice rink! Later in the day, we’ll start our desert safari adventure. This landscape is in complete contrast to the modern skyscrapers of the city, and we’ll enjoy an evening BBQ as well as a drive across the sand dunes, henna tattoos, a camel ride, and a Tannoura dance show before watching the sun set over the desert. What a perfect way to end the day!

Breakfast and dinner included. Overnight in Dubai.

Wednesday 26th February

Today we venture to the capital of the United Arab Emirates; Abu Dhabi. Home to the Emirates Palace, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers and the Heritage Village, we’ll discover how this city has grown and changed over the last few decades. On our city tour, we’ll visit the Sheikh Zayed Mosque. This white, gleaming building is largest mosque in the country and is a key place of worship for daily prayers, Friday gathering and Eid prayers.  We’ll also swing by Yas Island for a photo stop at Ferrari World!

Breakfast included. Overnight in Dubai.

Thursday 27th February

Our city adventure comes to an end today but we’ll be swapping skyscrapers for the sandy beaches of Ras Al Khaimah. This part of the holiday is meant for pure relaxation so when we arrive, the day is yours to spend how you wish. The hotel is only 4 minutes away from the beach so grab some sun cream and top up that tan, or chill out by the pool for the day!

Breakfast included. Overnight in Ras Al Khaimah.

Friday 28th February

On today’s free day you may wish to kick back and relax for another day in the sun. Alternatively, you might want to take advantage of some of the activities on offer in Ras Al Khaimah.

Breakfast included. Overnight in Ras Al Khaimah.

Saturday 29th February

We depart the United Arab Emirates for our flight home. We’ll make the transfer from Ras Al Khaimah to Dubai and share a few good stories from our holiday on the way to the airport. We hope you’ve had a great time and we can’t wait to see you on your next Traveleyes holiday!
