Dubai City skyline. Burj Khalifa and Tolerance Bridge.

UNIQUE ARCHITECTURE

Dubai is known worldwide for its architecture. It’s hard to believe that only four decades ago, the city did not have a single skyscraper. Now, the Dubai skyline is full of unique skyscrapers designed by some of the best architects in the world. Don’t miss the Dancing Dubai Fountains and the sprawling views from the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa.

LIFESTYLE IN THE DESERT

Turn the pages back to over 100 years ago, pre-1920’s before there were cars or any modern amenities, when camels were ‘the ships of the desert’. This experience takes you on an adventure into the culture and history of a bygone era and gives you the chance to live a day in the life of a true Bedouin.
