Day 1

Arrive in Dubai

After a long overnight flight, you’ve finally arrived in Dubai. Undoubtedly you caught a glimpse of the Burj Khalifia as your flight landed. Beautiful isn’t it? Have your passport handy as you go through customs and then gather your luggage from the carousel.

As you exit the terminal, you’ll met by our representative welcoming you officially to Dubai. You’ll be taken to the hotel in an air conditioned vehicle for your first night in Dubai.

Day 2

Dubai

You’ll start the day with breakfast at your hotel.

Soon after we’ll depart on a busy day of discovering the spectacular and lively metropolis of Dubai. Developed from a small fishing village at Dubai Creek, nowadays Dubai presents itself as a glamorous metropolis in the Arabian Gulf. The distinctive skyscrapers and gigantic shopping malls will impress you.

Our journey beings with two stops. The first is the awe-inspiring Grande Jumeirah Mosque, the most photographed Mosque in Dubai. While having your own personal photo opportunity, hear a little of the history of the Mosque and its importance in this Muslim country. Next up is the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel, the world’s only 7-star hotel. Take a moment to capture the perfect shot for your social media pages and your memories.

If you thought Atlantis was only in Bahamas, we have a nice surprise for you. We’ll venture on the magnificent Palm Islands. At the crescent of the palm, lies the Atlantis hotel. We’ll stop briefly for another photo opportunity and then tour the new residential area of Jumeirah Beach.

Get a glimpse of the Dubai Mall [you’ll have some shopping time here later] and Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower and the centerpiece of the Gulf region’s most prestigious urban development to date.

The Burj Khalifa radiates out in a series of ellipses from the sky breaking tower encompassing residential, commercial, hotel, entertainment and the world’s largest shopping mall.

We continue on to Bastakyia, the old town district of Dubai. Discover the  local history and geography of the city when visiting the Dubai Museum, located in the ancient fortress of Al-Fahidi.

I love old Dubai. You’ll get a sense of what Dubai was like before the skyscrapers. We’ll jump on a local water taxis, called an “Abra”, to cross the Dubai Creek into the district of Deira. Here you will be enchanted by the large variety of exotic spices in the famous Spice Souk. Looking for some bling? Head over to the Gold Souk and shop till your hearts content. From silk and trinkets to gold and spices, you’ll find treasures of your own to bring home.

By this time, you’ll probably be ready for lunch. We’ll make our way back to the Dubai Mall to grab lunch. After lunch, you’ll have a bit of free time. We suggest some retail therapy. Shop till you drop or grab tickets to the Burj Khalifa for a ride to top.

Now that you’re a bit more acquainted with Dubai city, it’s time to head out to the Arabian desert. In the afternoon we will head out for a bit of adventure. After settling down in the 4WD vehicles, we will speed through the desert of the golden sand dunes for a bit of dune bashing. Trust us, you’ve not ever had this much fun before! Going up and down the dunes will provoke many shrieks and laughter. After our eh…ride, take a moment to enjoy the beauty of the desert as the sun sets. Peace, solitude, the ability to hear yourself breath. It’s the perfect time for a moment of reflection and of course a few photos.

As the sun sets, we’ll jump back in the 4WD and head to the main camp site. After witnessing the Arabian sunset with its glory and magic, a delicious barbecue dinner is prepared on open fires with a variety of beverages. The beat of the music increases as a Belly dancer starts dancing to the rhythm of the music. What better way to experience a true Arabian night than this. At this point you’ll surely agree, this was the best thing you could have ever done for yourself. Go ahead, pat yourself on the back for loving you enough.

Its most outstanding feature is its majestic, gilt central dome, decorated on the inside with an intricate mosaic depicting the night sky and the signs of the zodiac.

After a quick stroll in the museum, we’ll head to the East coast of UAE. On our way, we’ll pass through the agricultural area of Al Dhaid.

Fujairah and Mussandam Cruise

Breakfast at your hotel.

The towering Hajar mountains rise directly out of the sea creating spectacular fjords-like scenery.

The beautiful Mosque is completely clad in marble and also features intricate Islamic decoration and carvings as well as extensive landscaping works. You’ve never seen architecture and beauty like this!
Continuing towards Abu Dhabi downtown you’ll pass through the old city or what we consider OLD today and pass by the oldest building in town, the Palace of Al-Husn. We’ll stop at the Heritage Village, which houses a small museum and depicts the traditional daily activities of the Arab community prior to the discovery of oil. We’ll enjoy lunch with the locals.

The rest of the afternoon will be devoted to driving through the famous giant Saadiyat Island project where the Louvre museum and  the Guggenheim museums are being built to complete the image of Abu Dhabi as a cultural city. Our tour of Abu Dhabi wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the famous Yas Island which houses the Formula 1 Yas circuit and the first attraction park of Ferrari in the world. It’s an impressive attraction, being the largest covered air conditioned park in the world with a huge RED FERRARI sign as landmark. Ever wonder how good you’d look behind the wheel of a red Ferrari?

Day 9

Dubai

Take some time to enjoy breakfast this morning.

As you prepare to head home, you’ll undoubtedly reflect upon all of the things you’ve learned and experienced. Was the culture of Dubai scary? Will you feel uneasy when you see a Muslim in the US? How did you cope being away from your husband, family and friends?

I suspect that by this time, you’ve found your wings. You understand more than ever the value of taking time for you. It doesn’t mean you love anyone less but it’s the ability to just breath… to not have to worry about dinner, the kids, the job. It’s just you and this big world. It’s you reconnecting with what matters the most. Go ahead and reflect on it. Meditate on it. Embrace the change. I’m so proud of you for doing this for you!

As this journey winds to a close, your airport transfer will take you back to the airport. Hold the memories in your heart and share them with your family and friends. Safe travels home beautiful!
