Dubai and Abu Dhabi

Visit the two great emirates!
In Dubai you can golf in the morning, swim during the day and finish with skiing in the evening. First-class food, wonderful beaches and endless activities await you here! Dubai and neighboring Emirates are not similar to other destinations. Dubai itself is a big city where different nationalities and cultures meet. Spectacular buildings stand next to mosques and oriental palaces. Here you will find restaurants with all the world’s kitchens and shopping malls with more than a thousand shops. At the same time, you can relax and have peace and quiet in nice hotels by the light sandy beaches.

Dubai’s different districts
In Dubai, there are four centers in six districts. Dubai Downtown is a modern district where much of what is associated with Dubai is located. In the middle is the newly built district of Dubai Al Barsha. In Bur Dubai, which is the older part of Dubai, it is calmer and more focused on culture. Here you will also find the Dubai Museum.

Dubai’s main beaches are Jumeirah Beach / Dubai Marina. Jebel Ali is a beach paradise next to a golf course just off Dubai, and the palm-shaped, artificial island of Palm Jumeirah houses some of the area’s most luxurious hotels.

Shopping in Dubai
Shopping in Dubai beats most! Here are most of the brand stores. In addition, Dubai is the center of gold trading, so there is plenty of gold sugar to be found in.

Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa
Dubai Mall is the world’s largest shopping center with 1,200 shops, an ice rink and an aquarium. Here is also the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. It is an impressive building that extends 828 meters into the sky. Dubai Fountain is a stately fountain where the water is pushed 100 meters into the air to music.
A boat trip on Dubai Creek, the water that divides the city into two parts, is also part of it. The Dubai Museum in Bur Dubai is well worth a visit. Here you get to know everything about the life of the Bedouins and the development and history of Dubai.

The beaches. not far from the hotel you will find the white beaches along the 1.5 mile long Jumeirah Beach. Windsurfing, water skiing and diving are just some of the activities you can do during your trip in Dubai.
