To fully appreciate the diversity of the United Arab Emirates, you should plan to spend time in both modern Dubai and more traditional Abu Dhabi. Here are some of the best options for day tripping to Dubai from the nation’s capital city.

Sightseeing Tours
Sightseeing tours of Dubai from Abu Dhabi give travelers the chance to see the highlights of the UAE’s ultramodern metropolis. Snap photos of the Burj Al Arab—the city’s most recognizable landmark—and then wander the winding alleys of Al Bastakiya, Dubai’s old quarter. Do some shopping in the famous spice and gold souks before heading back across the desert.

Seaplane Tours
You haven’t seen Dubai in its full glory until you’ve seen it from above. On a seaplane tour, you’ll get to see not only iconic Dubai landmarks like Burj Al Arab, Palm Jumeirah, and the other Palm Islands from above, but you’ll also get a glimpse of Abu Dhabi’s Ferrari World theme park, Yas Island, the Corniche, and Emirates Palace. Upon landing in Dubai, spend some time shopping at the Dubai Mall, enjoy a gourmet dinner cruise on Dubai Creek, or take in the views from the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest structure.

Things to Know
  • The 81-mile (130-kilometer) trip from Abu Dhabi to Dubai takes about two hours by car or bus, or 45 minutes by airplane.
  • Most Abu Dhabi day trips to Dubai last upwards of eight hours, so prepare for a full day.
  • Dubai day tours typically include round-trip transfer from Abu Dhabi hotels.
