Go on a trip to Dubai

There is nothing more incredible than the evolution and extraordinary metamorphosis of this city in the Persian Gulf. Close your eyes and imagine that this small territory was once a modest fishing village until the 1970s. Now look around you: only your imagination can stop this grandiose evolution. Dubai knows no limits. The metropolitan area includes the mini-emirates of Ajman, Qaiwain, Umm and Sharjah. In this state, skyscrapers are constantly being built, pushing back the greatest architectural follies. Thus, the Burj Khalifa Tower remains the highest tower in the world. It will soon be surpassed by the Jeddah Tower in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, which will reach 1000 meters. In Dubai, everything is excessive: luxurious hotels, amusement centers, gigantic shopping malls such as the Dubai Mall, the largest in the world, or the Mall of the Emirates and its artificial ski slope. Dubai has become a trendy and fashionable destination. Soaring skyscrapers, man-made islands and golden beaches, vibrant nightlife, luxury shopping and world-class restaurants make the city a place to behold and explore. If you miss the desire to escape, take a trip to the nearby desert dunes.

Five Ideas for Guided Tours in Dubai


  • Madinat Jumeirah

    To spend some time in a quiet place, go to this enclave built like an old Arab town with its souk, jewelers, antique shops, and all kinds of souvenir stores. You will be bordered by a 5-kilometer-long artificial river, itself surrounded by lush gardens. Sail quietly on abras, the traditional small boats of the country. The Madinat Jumeirah area is sublimely developed with exceptional hotels and restaurants serving all the cuisines of the world. A large private beach has been developed with lounges all around for nightlife.

  • Dubaï Mall

    The Dubai Mall, located right next to the Burj Khalifa Tower, is not just another shopping mall. It is simply THE biggest in the world. It has 1200 stores spread over 800 000 m2. There are both prestigious stores but also more affordable brands with many discount periods. The complex also offers tourist attractions: an aquarium with 90 species of fish and sharks, an Olympic skating rink, a video game center for children, hundreds of restaurants and bars, a cinema center with 22 screens. Not to be missed, right at the entrance of the Mall, is the sound and light show of the water fountains which takes place every evening between 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. and which changes at each time slot.

  • The old districts of Deira and Bur

    Although Dubai is a future-oriented city, it has two very picturesque old neighborhoods full of history. They are located in the north of the city separated by the Khor Dubai River. To learn all about these places, take a local Dubai tour guide with you to discover the most authentic atmosphere.
    Deira: the historical commercial place of the city. We will walk through small streets to reach two big souks: Spice Souk and Gold Souk where perfumes, colors and glitter are mixed.
    Bur: Another square of the old city, it is here that you will have the exact image of the buildings of another time like the wind towers called barjeel or mosques with human size.
    Close to the creek appear the docks where you can see the unloading of goods brought on the dhows, the local barges that trade with neighboring countries.

  • Jumeirah Beach Residence

    The new Dubai Marina is a residential complex composed of about 40 large towers overlooking the sea with luxury hotels. The almost two-kilometer-long promenade along the Jumeirah Beach Residence is the ideal place to stroll along the sea and stop on its fine sandy beaches and turquoise water. The JBR is where you will see the most emblematic image of the emirate: the Palm Jumeirah which is an artificial archipelago in the shape of a palm tree. On one of them is the Atlantis Hotel with Aquaventure Water Park: the largest water park in the Middle East.
