Visiting places in UAE
Dubai's tour companies offer a variety of options to give visitors a glimpse of all attractions within Dubai City. There are half-day tours, full day tours, desert safari tours and golf course tours. These tour companies can even organize custom tours for groups, corporate events and conference in Dubai and even offer to pick up tourists from their hotel or residence.
A half-day tour of Dubai City might begin at the Jumeirah Mosque and down along the Jumeirah beach road, one of the most luxurious urban landmarks in Dubai. As the tour moves towards the skyscraper area of Sheikh Zayed Road, tourists get a close-up view of the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, the Emirates Towers and the Dubai World Trade Center. The next part of this tour is a trip along the Dubai Creek and the Al Bastakiya's old wind tower houses, built by wealthy merchants of the past and a stop at the historical Al Fahidi Fort, now converted into the Dubai Museum. Towards the end of the tour, visitors are taken through the Abra (water ferry) station where they can walk through the bustling alleys of spice and gold souks. This will give a glimpse of Dubai's growth as major trading center.
