About the trip

Dubai is the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates and was established in the 18th century as a small fishing village, the city grew rapidly in the early 21st century with a focus on tourism and luxury, having the second most five star hotels in the world, and the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa, which is 828 meters (2,717 ft) tall. No visit to Dubai would be complete without a trip to the desert, witnessing the sand dunes and experiencing a Bedouin-style camp are one to definitely tick off.

Following this, we will visit one of Dubai’s most famous landmarks; the Atlantis Hotel on the Palm Island of Jumeirah, where we will also get an aerial view of Palm Island from the Palm Observation Deck.

A traditional welcome greeting awaits us with Arabic coffee, tea and dates, while the charcoal fire and traditional oven are lit to prepare dinner. We will have time to relax in the Arabian tents, while also having the chance to experience an unforgettable camel ride. And then we can enjoy the highlight of the evening, which includes an exotic belly dance to the rhythms of Arabia. The evening concludes with a delicious three-course barbecue menu of various meats and salads, served under the stars, accompanied by authentic Arabic music.
