Dubai Trips from Abu Dhabi
By Viator, October 2013
If you’re basing yourself in Abu Dhabi, it’s possible to visit Dubai on a day trip, allowing you to see some of the highlights of the country’s modern hub. Thanks to a five-lane highway connecting the two cities, the 81-mile (130-kilometer) trip only takes two hours by car or bus. On a Dubai City Sightseeing Tour from Abu Dhabi, you’ll make the quick, air-conditioned drive, followed by visits to the Burj Al Arab -- Dubai’s most recognizable landmark and the Jumeirah Mosque.
Follow your guide through the winding alleys of Al Bastakiya, Dubai’s old quarter, for a look at what the city was like before its rapid modernization. Continue your tour with a little shopping at the fragrant spice souk and the famous gold souk before making the return trek across the desert.
Fancy a bird’s eye view? See the sprawling desert landscape from above on a Dubai Seaplane Flight from Abu Dhabi. During the 45-minute flight, you’ll see Ferrari World, Emirates Palace, the Palm Jumeirah and Burj Al-Arab from above. Upon landing, spend the afternoon shopping at Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping complex.
