Savor the wonders of Dubai on this DreamTrip to the United Arab Emirates. Your odyssey begins with a tour of Dubai, taking in the Dubai Museum, Dubai Creek and Dubai Gold and Spice Souks. See architecturally impressive Burj Al Arab, beautiful Jumeirah Mosque and scenic Jumeirah Beach before stopping at Dubai Mall for shopping and watching the water show at the Dubai Fountain.
Start the next day with a desert safari to try your hand at dune bashing, camel riding and designing with henna. Also enjoy shisha — a traditional Middle Eastern water-pipe — and a barbecue dinner with memorable belly-dancing and folkloric Tanoura dance performances.
Take advantage of your complimentary access to Aquaventure Waterpark and The Lost Chambers Aquarium at Atlantis, The Palm. Ride and slide at the water park and see ancient ruins at the aquarium as well as its newest addition — baby alligators.
