Most photographs of Dubai present a panoramic view of the man-made islands of Palm Jumeirah and Burj al Arab. The shorelines that have been added by various developers over the years simply go on to extend the coastline of this remarkable Emirate- which incidentally is only 40 kms.
Sightseeing in Dubaialong the beaches is one thing we at One World won’t let you miss out on. The waters are clean and the underwater habitats, beautifully preserved. Take the Jumeirah Beach which is an all-time favorite with tourists and residents alike.
Housing a spectacular 7-star hotel like the Burj al Arab is enough of an excuse to visit this beachfront. It is easily accessible and we can arrange for a Dubai car rental to take you right up to the beach side.

Almost every photograph I have come across of the Atlantis resort tends to be a fine specimen of imagery. It is almost as if this jewel of the Palm Jumeirah is a lesson in traditional Arab aesthetics itself!
Most tourists who visit the U.A.E. make it a point to visit the man-made islands constructed in Dubai waters, commonly known as the Palm islands. While there is no shortage of luxury hotels in Dubai, a stay at any of the coveted hotels dotting the Palm islands is an experience in itself.
The Atlantis resort however, is a feat of Arab architecture and tends to overwhelm the senses. This beautiful 5-star resort also happens to house the tallest and fastest free fall water slide in the Middle East (it has a drop of 27.5 metres).
For those travelers with a yen for the opulent, this luxury hotel in Dubai would be the ultimate treat with an
efficient five-star service and £13,000/night stay. However, if the price is too steep for you, you could simply make your Dubai hotel bookingat another location and head over to the Atlantis and soak in some spectacular sightseeing in Dubai.
One World can take care of your hotel booking in U.A.E. at the Atlantis or recommend you another location. Our Abu Dhabi travel company suggests you take a look at the Lost Chambers under the Ambassador Lagoon at the Atlantis- its construction promises to give you a glimpse of the original Atlantis, albeit a sunken one.
Let One World know if you would like to have some help in charting out your travel plans at the Atlantis or elsewhere.
If Dubai were Venice, the traditional dhows that ply its waters would be akin to the rustic gondolas used to navigate the streets of the Italian city. But the dhows of the Middle East are even more sophisticated and beautiful than the gondolas of the West.
While this lofty comparison could be just because we are a loyal Abu Dhabi travel company, dhows are undoubtedly an ubiquitous feature in the Emirate of Dubai. Unlike the Venetian gondolas though, dhows are more of a tourist feature than a water taxi.
A popular route your guide will take you down by is the magnificient Dubai Creek. Other equally popular routes include Mussandam, Khor Sham and Kumzar.
There are fine dining options, entertainment options like belly dancing (available only in the Marina Dhow Cruise) and traditional dancing, barbeque dinners, snorkelling activities and a lot more you can enjoy aboard a Dhow Cruise in Dubai.
All along the way, you shall get to savour the sights and sounds of Dubai’s bustling and thriving urban life. Many travellers going sightseeing in Dubai never fail to marvel at the contrasts between tradional and modern Dubai.
