This trip is like a who’s who of Dubai, ticking off the sky-high city’s most iconic attractions in less than a day. You’ll start by driving past the sail-like Burj Al Arab hotel, before making a beeline for Palm Island Drive, where you can see a pair of manmade islets shaped to look like giant palm trees. Your coach will park up at Dubai Marina next, where you’ll swap dry land for a traditional dhow sailing boat. While the skipper steers you along the yacht-lined waterway, tilt your head back and you’ll see skyscrapers in every direction. The boat trip lasts for around an hour, and it’s back on the bus once you return to the harbourside. From here, you’ll head to the powder-white Jumeirah Beach area, then to the Emirates Hills – Dubai’s most exclusive neighbourhood. Before things wrap up you’ll pass the famous Mall of the Emirates, and catch a glimpse of the jewel in Dubai’s crown, the Burj Khalifa.
