Dubai stopover trip
Dubai stopover trip
Only £219pp - Includes return airport transfers, accommodation, guided desert safari and city tour
If you’re flying to the other side of the world, why not break your long journey up with a stopover in Dubai? Enjoy 4 days and 3 nights in this glamorous state that will amaze you in every way. Be in awe of the sheer scale of this powerhouse city as you wander the vast streets surrounded by hundreds of skyscrapers.
Head to the top of the world as you climb up the Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world at 828 metres high (additional cost)! Get lost in Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping centre with over 1200 shops and restaurants and head outside to watch the fantastic water and light show at Dubai Fountain.
Alongside all of the glitz and glamour, Dubai also has historic neighbourhoods, colourful souqs (markets), museums, mosques, beaches and of course the desert!
As part of the trip fee you will get to hop on board a land cruiser and head into the deserts of Dubai! The evening will be spent dune bashing, admiring the sunset, watching traditional dances and enjoying a BBQ under the Arabian stars – something you will never forget!
You will also head off on a 4 hour city tour around all of the major attractions. See the contrast between ‘new’ and ‘old’ Dubai, where you will get to admire the beaches, hotels, viewpoints, museums, mosques and more!
The stopover trip is the perfect blend of structured guided tours and free independent travel. You’ll have plenty of time to explore Dubai at your own pace and with so much on offer there will be many things for you and your new friends to choose from. Spend the day topping up your tan at Jumeirah beach, shopping to your hearts content at Dubai Mall or trying out some of the main adrenaline activities on offer.
