Dubai Tours

In today’s eclectic city of Dubai, a range of numerous holiday opportunities are available for anyone who wishes to take time off to relax. Among the various activities and attractions, one of the novel ways to enjoy this foreign location is to take a Dubai tour. Whether you decide for a Dubai day tour or a few days’ trip to its surroundings, the activities are sure to appeal to a wide range of people. Here are some ideas on what you can do.

 

The Dubai day tour, for instance, is a popular choice among tourists, as it introduces them to the new and old Dubai. Starting with the new districts of Dubai, the tour then continues with the Jumeirah Mosque, one of the landmarks of Dubai. Generally, the Dubai day tour also features a drive along the Dubai Creek, where the pulse of the city can be taken, as well as a visit to the Al Fahidi Port, where the Dubai Museum is housed. During this tour visitors also get the chance to stroll along the narrow lanes of Bastakia, a testimony to the old Dubai. The Dubai day tour can then be completed with a crossing across the Creek in a traditional water taxi (abrah) to reach the spice souk, with hundreds of exotic spices. To end the night, a perfect option is a walk to the Gold Souk, which displays more than 200 glittering shop windows.

Another attractive tour option is to enjoy a romantic dinner aboard an Arabic Dhow while admiring the creek of Dubai and the starry sky. During such a night tour, one can contemplate the architecture of places such as the fabulous Chamber of Commerce, the Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club, as well as Sheikh Saeed’s house, where Sheikh Rashid was born. Additionally, you will be served a sumptuous dinner by top-class personnel, so that you can truly enjoy the taste of Arabian hospitality.

For the more adventurous ones, the Dubai night tour can also include a sunset safari and a barbeque dinner. The tourists will get to know the magic of the desert sunset while listening to the sound of the Muezzins calling to prayer from the minarets. During such a tour, dinner is served on camp, cooked over open fire, and is regularly preceded by a traditional Arabic starter.

Another convenient Dubai day tour opportunity is a shopping spree in the traditional souks. Since Dubai has an incredible amount of shopping available, ranging from precious gold to Persian rugs, everything can be bought at unbelievable prices. The Dubai shopping tour usually features visits to Karama, the well-known “fake” souk, the material souk, the electronic souk, and also the notorious Gold souk, where the finest and purest gold in the world can be purchased at bargain prices. Besides all these, Dubai tours include visits to some of the 10 shopping malls, where shopping addicts can hunt for bargains in an air-conditioned environment.

As for the tours around Dubai, a good destination is the emirate of Sharjah, which is only 20 minutes away from Dubai. As the cultural center of the Middle East, Sharjah is the place for museums and artists. Your Sharjah day tour can start at the Cultural Roundabout, and then continue with the Natural History Musem, the Cornice, the Al Majara Souk, and the Al Naboodah House. You can then end your tour at the spectacular Central Souk, which features typical Arabic architecture and over two hundred shops.

In short, Dubai tours are a great way to get acquainted with the culture and history of the emirate. Whether done on your own or via a tourist agency, make sure you take your time and check out the wonderful entertainment opportunities Dubai has to offer.
