Itinerary highlights

Abu Dhabi

This capital city may seem a little dull in comparison to its famous neighbour, Dubai, but what Dubai lacks in beauty, Abu Dhabi makes up for with its impressive sand dunes, vast beaches and soaring mountains. Whatever you do during your time here, make sure you pay Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque a visit. This stunning structure will leave you awe-struck from the minute you set eyes on it, made up of 80 domes and 1000 pillars, this is undeniably one of the most impressive sites in the emirates.

Abu Dhabi


There are endless reasons to visit Dubai – from the chance to step foot in the world’s tallest building, catch a tan with its sun-filled climate and return home with some fantastic designer goods thanks to its world-class shopping spots. Yet despite its showy exterior, Dubai also has a toned-down side which can be found in the historical district of Bastakiya in Old Dubai or the deep in the city’s desolate deserts.
