Abu Dhabi Discovery

Abu Dhabi Discovery

From $ 520 AUD

Description

From humble beginnings rise great things. The capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi has transformed from a small fishing village into a sky-scrapered metropolis where even falcons have passports and fly in first class. Marvel at the glittering skyline of glass and steel, and at the marble domes of the Grand Mosque, one of the world’s most extravagant places of worship. Delve into the culture and history of the city-state while wandering down seaside walkways, and see the pre-oil world in the Heritage Village. With a dose of poolside relaxation and retail therapy, this is a perfect short introduction to the Emirates.

This can happen with little notice so please be prepared for modifications to the route. The order and timing of included activities in each location may also vary from time to time. LOCAL OPERATOR: Please note that this trip is operated by our local Abu Dhabi Operator; Desert Adventures.

Day 1 - Abu Dhabi
Ahlan Wa Sahlan! Welcome to the capital of the United Arab Emirates. On arrival into Abu Dhabi Airport please clear customs and collect your luggage before locating your shuttle transfer representative (if you have pre-booked this service). This Shortbreak Adventure is operated by our local operator Desert Adventures, and includes a seat on a coach transfer to your hotel. Please look for a Desert Adventures representative wearing an orange t-shirt and carrying a sign with your name. Once all passengers have arrived you will be transferred to centrally located hotel. The hotel is conveniently located about 20mins from Abu Dhabi Airport. The rest of the day is free to spend as you wish. Perhaps head out for some retail therapy, enjoy the roof-top pool or jump on the complimentary bus service to the beach. There is plenty to do and see in Abu Dhabi. If you wish to stay longer ask your agent about booking additional pre or post tour accommodation.
Day 2 - Abu Dhabi
This morning is yours to explore at your own leisure. Be mesmerised by the grandness of the new additions to Abu Dhabi’s skyline. Marvel at the jewel of the city, the majestic Grand Mosque, the third largest in the world. It sparkles in the sun like the Taj Mahal, with thousands of columns decorated with flowers, and domes topped with golden spires. Perhaps do some shopping at the Abu Dhabi Marina Mall, home to a large array of luxury boutiques and souvenir stores, or relax with a walk along the Corniche, an impressive eight-kilometre stretch of perfectly manicured waterfront with children’s play area, beach, cafés and restaurants. In the afternoon, join safari guides in a 4WD for an adventure into the golden sand dunes of Arabia. Experience the thrill of a lifetime while riding through the undulating dunes, then see a beautiful scenic sunset over the desert. Continue to a Bedouin campsite, where you can take a camel ride through the dunes. There is also henna design, Arabic gava (coffee), local dresses, refreshments, a Hubbly Bubbly (hookah) and a delicious barbeque buffet to enjoy. Adding to the atmosphere of the night is an enchanting belly dancer performing to Arabic rhythms. After this desert adventure, return to your Abu Dhabi Hotel
Day 3 - Abu Dhabi
There are no activities planned for the final day and this trip finishes after breakfast. This Shortbreak includes a departure transfer shuttle back to Abu Dhabi Airport. You will be collected from the hotel's main lobby approximately three hours before your scheduled departure flight. Your pick up details will be confirmed in the welcome pack you receive on Day 1.
