Drift along Dubai’s famous Creek in a traditional wooden Dhow boat where you will be treated to an Arabian buffet and refreshing beverages, take in the contrasting sights of modernity against the city’s simpler historic waterways. By day, relax and soak up the sun as there is certainly no shortage of sea and sand in Dubai. Head to the beach at The Walk at JBR for a great selection of cafes, restaurants and shops. Culture lovers will be in their element soaking up the atmosphere as they step back in time in the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood. This is one of the oldest traditional Emirati neighbourhoods in Bur Dubai. Dubai has always boasted a packed calendar of show performances. However the new Opera House is the first stage in the city that has the technical capabilities to compete with other world-famous stages. A first-class theatre that is architecturally inspired by an Arabian Dhow, it can host everything from opera, musicals, ballet – and even ice shows.  Love adding adventure to your holiday? The desert safari is a great choice! Set off in a 4 x 4 thrilling journey over crescents of sand dunes, take photos as you experience a camel ride and then dip your toes in the sand at camp where you can enjoy a traditional fireside feast and performances as the sunset brings in a sky of a thousand stars.
