Virtual Dubai – a city that only existed on high-tech computer screens, to its final realization and existence in the physical reality, with sky-scrapers growing like mushrooms.
The city is world famous for its innovative construction technologies as well as modern technologies and daring projects. This modernity will be the underlying theme for this tour.
We will stop by the 8th wonder of the world, the Dubai Palm Island and its gem – the Atlantis Hotel & the Burj Al Arab – one of the most iconic architectural structures of the 21st Century (photo stop only). On the way we will make a stop at Madinat Jumeirah – an ultra stylish shopping mall that is riddled with canals, coffee shops, restaurants & shops.
Next, we will head to the newly opened Dubai Mall which will surely impress you with its state-of the art aquariums and its absolutely unique dancing fountains. Lastly, we will visit the viewing platform at the top of the tallest in the world. The maginitude of Burj Khalifa is truly hard to mentally encompass until you are standing underneath it, or at the top ofcourse.
