Dubai & Abu Dhabi Sights & Activities

Dubai, the largest of the 7 kingdoms that make up the U.A.E., has quickly become the social and financial hub of the Middle East. Second only in size to Abu Dhabi, but still with a population of only 1.5 million, Dubai offers a range of leisure activities that would put places many times its size to shame.

With near constant sunshine and temperatures consistently rising above 25°C, Dubai allows you to plan you holiday excursions well in advance with little threat of cancellation. So whether you are travelling around the city in an open-top bus, or flying over it in a helicopter or a seaplane, the weather is seldom a concern. Even open-air dining is a year-round option, so why not savour the culinary talents of Gary Rhodes rather than fall foul of the expert predictions of Michael Fish.

When you have exhausted all that Dubai has to offer (and you wonât!), why not explore its near neighbour. Just 200 Km down the road, Abu Dhabi is quickly following the example of Dubai and boasts some of the highest quality leisure facilities in the region. Trips to here can be combined with desert safaris, where 4 wheel drive vehicles, in the hands of true experts, provide rides of a lifetime. Or, if youâre feeling a little more proactive, why not get out and âsand-boardâ down a 100m sand dune? Oh, and by the way if you do fancy this, donât bother packing the woolly hat.

So, let me summarise, if you do have a few hours to spare between rounds of golf, you could- explore the city, by land, sea or air; you could travel out into the desert and surf down a dune; you could ride a camel and experience the Bedouin life style; you could dine at elite restaurants; you could climb a mountain; you could try falconry; you could⦠Iâll tell you what, why not contact one of our experts here at E.G.D. and let us tailor the excursions that best suit you, around your golfing holiday schedule. After all, it would be a shame to travel all that way and not try a sheepâs eyeball!
