The dazzling dual-city tour

Upon landing in the capital of Abu Dhabi, you’ll have ample time to check out its many can’t-miss highlights, from the dazzling white marble Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque to the iconic, blade-like cluster of skyscrapers known as the Etihad Towers. Perhaps the island city’s most stunning feature, however, is its turquoise waters, and the Abu Dhabi Corniche is the perfect place to admire them. Here, you’ll find five miles of walkable promenades, bike paths, playgrounds, and fountains to explore among the sun worshippers and fitness enthusiasts who frequent it every day. The Blue Flag-certified Corniche Beach, in particular, features a diverse assortment of top-notch cafes and restaurants of every stripe, including the CAF Cafe, the ever-popular Patron Meat House, and even a Cold Stone Creamery right on the boardwalk.

Your trip also includes four full days in Dubai, leaving you plenty of time to explore the origins of this great metropolis, starting with Dubai Creek, commonly known as the “lifeblood” of the city. You’ll orient yourself with a drive through Old Dubai in the neighborhood of Bastakiya, with visits to several of its most crucial cultural sites, plus the opportunity to shop for jewelry and spices in its local souks. From the treasured Union House, where in 1971 the UAE was first declared a nation, to Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, this trip is designed to provide you with a deeper understanding of the United Arab Emirates of yesterday and today.
