We begin with several photo stops in the modern city: Jumeirah-Mosque, built in medieval Fatimid style, the Burj Al Arab Hotel in the form of a giant sail. Along Jumeirah road we continue to the artificial island "The Palm" and make a photo stop at the Atlantis Hotel. From Palm Monorail you will have a beautiful view of the island, the coast and the skyline of Dubai. Then explore Dubai's old part "Bastakya" with its traditional houses and wind towers which in the past served as a natural air conditioning. Afterwards visit the Dubai Museum which is located in the historical Al Fahidi fort. We will then cross the Dubai creek to Deira with the traditional water taxi (Abra) and visit the Gold&Spice market. We continue with a visit to Burj Khalifa, with its 828 meters the tallest building in the world. The tour starts on the ground floor of the Dubai Mall and a multimedia show will keep you entertained all the way to the 124. Floor. Afterwards admire the aquarium in the Dubai Mall and enjoy a show of the Dubai Fountain. From the mall we will take you directly to the Dubai Marina for a romantic dinner-dhow cruise (duration 2 hour, dinner buffet incl. non alcoholic beverages).
