Take a holiday in Dubai to experience a mix of excitement, entertainment, and relaxation.
Dubai is known for shopping, theme parks, wildlife, zoos & aquariums, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: enjoy breathtaking views from Burj Khalifa, stop by Dubai Gold Souk, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, and make a splash at Wild Wadi Waterpark.

To see maps, traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Dubai travel planner.

Zurich, Switzerland to Dubai is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and shuttle. Traveling from Zurich to Dubai, you'll lose 3 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Zurich in October, with highs in Dubai at 41°C and lows at 32°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sun) to allow time to drive to Al Ain.

If you need a break from the U.A.E's two mega-cities, take a trip to Al Ain, a refreshing oasis of green amid the harsh desert.
Kick off your visit on the 7th (Mon): stroll around Jahil Park, browse the different shops at Al Foah Mall, then get to know the resident critters at Al Ain Zoo, and finally relax in the rural setting at Camel Souk. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Mary's Catholic Church, step into the grandiose world of Al Jahili Fort, then examine the collection at Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum, then make a trip to Oasenstadt Al Ain, and finally examine the collection at Al Ain National Museum.

You can drive from Dubai to Al Ain in 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Abu Dhabi.
