Day Trips in Dubai

Dubai is undoubtedly a wonderful city, full of things to do and see: from futuristic skyscrapers to splendid beaches, from almost implausible buildings to traditional Arab markets. There are so many things to do and see that time never seems to be enough, also considering the considerable size of the city. But to spend a different day there is nothing better than going on an excursion to discover the surroundings of Dubai. There are numerous tourism agencies in the city, although they are not so easy to detect: some are located inside shopping centers, but many tourists have the opportunity to book excursions directly at the hotel reception: almost all hotels in Dubai actually has a tour desk, with the convenience of not even having to leave to schedule a different vacation day. It is possible to participate in various excursions, some only lasting a few hours and others lasting up to 2 or 3 days, with the stay included.

Sightseeing tours in Dubai - Day Trips in Dubai

The easiest tours to find, and at the same time the least expensive, are simple sightseeing tours of Dubai with a guide. Usually such an excursion starts early in the morning, you will be picked up from your hotel and taken in a comfortable air-conditioned coach: you will be able to visit all the most beautiful places in Dubai in no time. An excursion of this type is very comfortable when you do not have much time, or when you prefer to rely on expert tour guides capable of explaining the life, death and miracles of the monuments and buildings of the city. The other side of the coin is that excursions of this type are often too short, stops are shortened to a few minutes, sometimes just enough time to take a photo, and you can feel like you’ve wasted the day. Without taking into account among other things that an excursion to Dubai in Dubai could be a contradiction: it is very easy to move around the city independently and often doing it by yourself you have the possibility to choose what you really want to see and how much time to stay in an attraction. One of the advantages of a guided tour of Dubai is that it often includes additional services such as a cruise down the Creek on board a Dhow, a traditional boat in the area. There are more complete creek cruises, which last around two hours, and also offer a welcome drink and an international buffet with drinks, or a tea with typical Arabic sweets. These cruises often depart at sunset, to enjoy a magnificent view of the modern buildings in the area.

Another one of the Day Trips in Dubai, An Abu Dhabi City Tour is a great way to visit the capital of the United Arab Emirates without leaving Dubai. The two cities are less than two hours by motorway from each other and as soon as you arrive in Abu Dhabi the first stop is the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, one of the most beautiful mosques in the entire Islamic world, very white and huge, with marbles, stucco, magnificent rugs, and decorations.

Continuing on, you reach the Corniche, the city’s waterfront flanked by futuristic skyscrapers, to reach the Heritage Village, an open-air museum that shows what life was like in this place before the discovery of oil. A relaxing stop at the Marina Mall, one of the most important shopping centers in Abu Dhabi, and on to Ferrari World, a theme park inspired by the Maranello Horse. Attention to the fact that the cheapest excursions do not include the entrance to the park, but only a stop to take photos.
