Dubai is unique among cities in the world not merely for its speed of development, but also for retaining the duality of its way of life. It holds a balance of extremes: on the one hand, it’s incredibly ultramodern in terms of engineering and structure, and on the other hand, it preserves its traditional roots, with the Spice and Gold Souk and the Bastakyia area. You’ll see this for yourself on this day tour, which first takes you to the Burj Al Arab. Make sure to take great photos of you and your group against the sailboat-shaped building before heading to Jumeirah Mosque, the largest in the city and the nation. After visiting this symbol of religion, you will head to the Bastakyia area, which is famed for the carefully preserved old houses and the cultural museum nearby. After some time in the Dubai Museum, you will ride on board an Abra Taxi, which is essentially a small boat that ferries passengers through Dubai Creek. Upon disembarking from the boat, you’ll have plenty of time to see the brilliant colors of spices from all over the world in the Spice Souk and see gold and gems on display at the Gold Souk. Now it’s time to experience the newer side of Dubai, and you head to Dubai Mall, the largest in the country, with over 1,200 stores. Dubai has a penchant for big things, and near the mall is the famous Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. You then head to Palm Jumeirah, a man-made archipelago attached to the coast, to see the Atlantis the Palm, which is a luxurious hotel at the very end of the islands. This is followed by a trip to Dubai Marina, where the ultra-rich locals dock their boats and yachts. Finally, you will visit the Mall of Emirates, which has its own indoor ski slope. The whole experience is an unforgettable look through Dubai and all the myriad of attractions it has to offer.
