United Arab Emirate Cruises
Sun, sand, shopping and crystal clear waters pretty much sum up what you’ll find on your cruise to the United Arab Emirates. But it also throws in a couple of surprises. For starters, if you visit Fujairah you’ll find a mountainous landscape with some wonderful nature walks. The city also has plenty of souks to explore. [ReadMoreMob]
The other Emirates, such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi are more desert-like and tend to be associated with opulence. And for good reason, as both house a number of stylish hotels and shopping malls. You can spend hours browsing the well-known designer brands and then relax on the exquisite beaches.
As for food, you’ll never go hungry, as there are restaurants offering just about any cuisine you can think of, as well as the local dishes of hummus, shawama and falafel.
Despite its reputation for high-end shops and restaurants and jaw-dropping skyscrapers, a cruise holiday to the Unite Arab Emirates will see you fall in love with this beautiful country and its blend of Islamic culture and modernity.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The stunning Burj Khalifa has amazed and astounded the world since its completion in 2009. This $1.5 billion socio-political statement towers above Dubai, its cladding shining so bright under the Arabian sun that it almost seems to be made of ivory.
Burj Al Arab
Described as a ‘theatre of opulence’, the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab is a monument to the city's wealth and one of the most luxurious hotels in the world. High tea can be enjoyed among the gold leaf interiors; other features include a 990,000-litre fish tank.
The desert surrounding Dubai unfolds as an undulating canvas of sweeping dunes and shifting sands, traditional Bedouin tents and camel camps. A journey over the rolling dunes in a 4x4 vehicle is about as authentically Arabian as it gets.
