What to Expect
Travel from Abu Dhabi to the heart of Dubai on a full-day trip, and experience the contrast between Dubai’s 21st-century present and its centuries-old past.
Your tour begins at the magnificent Jumeirah Mosque. Although the mosque is closed to foreigners on certain days you will have a close-up look at the exterior on such days.
After visiting Jumeirah Mosque, the tour continues along Jumeirah Beach Road, which is the most luxurious urban area in Dubai. You’ll pass the front of the famous Mercato themed shopping mall and have a photo stop at the 7-star Burj Al Arab hotel.
Next you’ll continue to Sheikh Zayed Road and marvel at Dubai’s skyscrapers. Drive past the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, and by the Emirates Towers and Dubai World Trade Center.
Head to Dubai Creek, passing the old-wind tower houses of Al Bastakiya, built by wealthy merchants. Stop at the historical Al Fahidi Fort, which has been converted into the Dubai Museum. The Museum houses important records of pearl diving and trading activities of the past.
At the Abra station you’ll board a water ferry to cross to the opposite side of the creek, and then enjoy an interesting walk through the bustling alleys towards the spice and gold souks. You’ll have a chance to get an insight into the growth of Dubai into a major trading center.
