Wander around the metropolis of Dubai

Dubai is a city with endless opportunities. If you love shopping, Dubai Mall is the largest shopping centre in the world where you can while away many hours. Alternatively, stroll through the city’s traditional souks where you can purchase aromatic spices and glistening jewellery. If you’d rather put your feet up and relax, go to Jumeirah Beach and take a dive into the warm sea. Your visit to Dubai will not be complete without seeing the spectacular Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab, particularly before sunset when the view of the glittering buildings is simply spectacular. All you need to do is find a nice sky bar and enjoy!

“The view from the Burj Khalifa is absolutely breathtaking and you can even see the Palm Islands.”

Amazing Abu Dhabi

If you visit Abu Dhabi during a trip from Dubai, you can see all of the city’s sights in a single day. With Transavia Holidays, you can easily book a car that will take you to Abu Dhabi in a mere 90 minutes. In this city, ancient Arabic traditions go hand in hand with modern western influences. The elegant Sheikh Zayed Mosque is unmissable and its spectacular chandeliers, domes and minarets are an impressive sight. If you want to know how the bedouin peoples used to live 100 years ago, visit The Heritage Village open-air museum. Petrolheads can also indulge themselves in Abu Dhabi, and both the Ferrari World and Yas Marina Formula 1 circuits are highly recommended. If you have any time left to appreciate some art, visit the Louvre, a sister museum of the famous Louvre museum in Paris.

Everything is possible in the United Arab Emirates

If you’re looking for fun and adventure, take a trip to the desert by jeep or quad bike! You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the desert. You can also enjoy sandboarding or a camel ride. Your desert safari ends at the desert camp where you’ll be served local delicacies. If you want to visit one of the other emirates, choose Sharjah, which is north of Dubai. Here you can experience authentic Arabic culture. For a truly spectacular nature trip, go to Musandam. This pristine province of Oman has high mountains, rugged cliffs, coral reefs, and beautiful fjords, and the natural reserve is totally spectacular!
