Meet your private guide at your Ras Al Khaimah hotel and drive to Dubai, famous for its futuristic architecture and opulent hotels and malls.
Take the undersea tunnel to the Palm Jumeirah, the artificial palm tree-shaped archipelago jutting into the Arabian Gulf. View the plush villas along the ‘fronds’ and drive along the outer breakwater to take photos by Atlantis, The Palm: the colossal luxury hotel that is the archipelago’s showpiece.
Next, return to the mainland to visit Dubai Marina, the city’s artificial waterway lined by more than 260 skyscrapers. Stroll along the waterfront to view the forest of towers and then drive to Souk Madinat Jumeirah. This recreation of a traditional Arabian bazaar intertwines with a luxury resort and is threaded with canals, lending it the nickname of ‘Little Venice.’
Wander by the traditional-style wind towers and palm-lined waterways, dotted with abra water taxis that carry hotel guests to their rooms. Plus, see the intricate wooden arcades of the Souk Madinat, home to a host of upscale shops.
Admire the stunning views of the sail-shaped, 7-star Burj Al Arab from here before visiting Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa, the world’s highest tower. Ride the express lift to the 124th-floor observatory at 1,483 feet (452 meters), and drink in the 360-degree city views.
Back at ground level, see the fountains at the Burj Lake, and then drive to the Burj Al Arab. Marvel at the soaring atrium and catch the glass elevator to the Skyview cocktail bar on the 27th floor.
Relax over a drink from the bar list (up to an approximate value of USD $95) as you take in the panoramic sea and coastal views from 656 feet (200 meters) up.
Your tour then ends with a drop-off at your Ras Al Khaimah hotel.
