The U.A.E: Seven Emirates Tour
By: Corinthian Travel
The UAE – which will also be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2021 – is one of the first regions in the Middle East to re-open its borders post Covid-19.
One on the wealthiest countries on the planet, the U.A.E is dominated by its two largest emirates, Abu Dhabi, and Dubai, which are recognised across the world for their luxurious developments, cutting-edge design, and remarkable engineering projects.
In contrast, the five smaller emirates of Sharjah, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Umm Al Quwain, and Ajman, remain largely unknown. The Seven Emirates tour will reveal the striking differences in terms of development and geography that exist between the seven emirates, as well as showcase their cultural and historical commonalities as trading entrepots and centres of pearl fishing.
As the Seven Emirates tour unfolds you will also be able to marvel at what billions of petro-dollars have created in the space of a generation, learn about the history of each individual emirate, and admire the striking natural beauty of the United Arab Emirates as a whole.
Browsing through a spice market or gold souq, strolling through restored mudbrick quarters with their distinctive wind-towers, driving through desert wadis studded with gaff trees, visiting villages surrounded by oases of date palms, and exploring hill-top forts, are experiences that provide a fascinating window into the UAE's past.
Other highlights include, spending a night amongst the sweeping dunes at a desert resort, learning about pearl fishing on a dhow cruise in Ajman, travelling across the desert by Unimog, visiting Jebel Jais in Ras Al Khaimah (the highest mountain in the U.A.E.), discovering Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Mosque, and ascending to the 148th floor of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
The holiday costs from £2245 per person (two sharing), which includes private transfers, all sightseeing with an English-speaking driver-guide, seven-nights' B&B and one dinner, activities/sightseeing as per the itinerary, and entrance fees. Flights not included (bookable through Corinthian Travel).
