On the first day of your travel itinerary it will set the scene to go to the old town, starting at the Dubai Musuem where you can learn about the history of Dubai and the plans to turn it into a modern tourist orientated city. Follow this up with a trip to the nearby fort and the Jumeirah Mosque for a taste of how the city used to be.

Time for a bit of luxury at the Atlantis resort on the Palm Jumeirah island. Enjoy the spa and take the kids to the Aquaventure waterpark there where they can enjoy the many slides and the jungle river.

Day 03 :

In the morning of the third day of this travel itinerary, you can go deep sea fishing and try to catch the likes of flounder, bass, barracuda and small sharks. Tasty! In the evening, head over to the world famous Burj Khalifa where you can wonder at the sheer height and scale of this stupendous building. Enjoy dinner at the base where you can watch the fun fountain show set to music.

Day 04 :

Get out of Dubai and go on a day and night desert trip. Here, you will get a jeep ride through the dunes, eat some local food and be entertained by traditional dances. All this, plus the chance to see the stars on a clear desert night.

Day 05 :

One of the favourite pastimes for the rich and famous is Dubai is to go shopping at one of the large malls in town. Our recommendation is the Mall of Emirates where you can tackle the indoor ski slope before flexing the muscle of your credit card at the many designer shops and boutiques.

Day 06 :

You can turn this travel itinerary into a multi-country trip by taking a sailing trip into nearby Oman. On your trip, you should get the chance to fish and then snorkel in the clear waters where you might be lucky enough to spot a mantra ray.

On the last day of this travel itinerary, take advantage of one of the special brunch deals that the top hotels do. Here, you can eat as much of the gourmet buffet that your stomach can handle plus even glug down the free alcohol alongside it.
