Affordable tour packages make this luxurious dream destination a reality
(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED STATES - September 10th, 2012 - There are few places in the world with more luxury and amenities than Dubai, a city of ultramodern skyscrapers surrounded by miles and miles of undulating desert landscapes. Now, Friendly Planet Travel is making this exotic city more affordable than ever before, with five incredible packages that feature Dubai and four exotic hot spots starting at $2,199.
“Our creative Dubai packages are designed for travelers to visit Dubai and take advantage of the already-included international airfare to explore another city,” says Peggy Goldman, President of Friendly Planet Travel. “We’ve customized an array of Dubai tours to cater to the interests and budgets of any traveler who has a taste for the exotic and wants to experience true luxury without paying a fortune for the pleasure.”
Friendly Planet’s six-day Dazzling Dubai tour starts at $2,199 and includes round-trip airfare on Emirates, one of the world’s top five airlines; fuel surcharges; airline taxes and fees; and all transfers. It also includes deluxe hotel accommodations at the five-star Fairmont Dubai; a daily buffet breakfast; touring programs; a professional, English-speaking tour director; and more.
In Dubai, travelers have the chance to experience the luxury that defines this city. Explore the picturesque Dubai Creek that divides the city into two parts, the Bastakiya district with charming courtyard houses and narrow alleys, and the Dubai Museum, where life-size dioramas offer a fascinating view of life in Dubai before the discovery of oil. A highlight of the Dubai program is an included visit to the fabulous Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. Travelers also have the chance to experience one of Dubai’s most reliable and inexpensive forms of transportation, an Abra water taxi. During several days in the city, travelers can, on their own or on optional tours, enjoy more of what Dubai has to offer, including the Mall of the Emirates, complete with indoor ski slopes, exquisite cuisine, and more; a Dinner cruise on Dubai Creek; and a desert safari tour complete with a BBQ dinner and belly-dancing entertainment.
