Dubai

— 10 nights

City of Gold

Take a holiday in Dubai to experience a mix of excitement, entertainment, and relaxation.
Step out of Dubai with an excursion to Sharjah Museums in Sharjah--about 32 minutes away. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 27th (Sat) at Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark. Spend the 31st (Wed) exploring nature at Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. There's still lots to do: take in panoramic vistas at Burj Khalifa, savor the flavors at Food & Drink, buy something for everyone on your list at The Dubai Mall, and contemplate the waterfront views at Dubai Creek.

For where to stay, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, read our Dubai road trip site.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Dubai is an approximately 17-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Brasilia Standard Time (BRT) to Gulf Standard Time (GST) is 7 hours. Traveling from Rio de Janeiro in March, plan for little chillier nights in Dubai, with lows around 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Ras Al Khaimah.

Side Trips

Ras Al Khaimah

— 8 nights

Rising Emirate

Nicknamed "the Rising Emirate," Ras Al Khaimah may be an unfamiliar name to many tourists, but has been tipped as the next Dubai thanks to its steady development (along with the rest of the U.A.E.) of luxury resorts, retail districts, and shopping malls.
Change things up with these side-trips from Ras Al Khaimah: Umm Al Quwain (Dreamland Aqua Park, Abandoned Ilyushin IL 76, &more). Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Wadi Bih, get in on the excitement at RAK Track, get outside with Outdoor Activities, and admire the engineering at Wadi Shawka.

Plan my Ras Al Khaimah trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

You can drive from Dubai to Ras Al Khaimah in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Dubai in April since evenings lows in Ras Al Khaimah dip to 23°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Mon) to allow time to drive to Fujairah.

Side Trip

Fujairah

— 6 nights

Arabian Jewel

The commercial and business center of the U.A.E., and the largest town along the east coast, Fujairah features busy office buildings, shopping malls, and giant fields of oil containers.
Get out of town with these interesting Fujairah side-trips: Al Badiyah Mosque (in Al Badiyah), Al Hefaiyah Mountain Conservation Centre (in Kalba) and Hatta (Hatta Mountain Bike Trail Centre, Hatta Hill Park, &more). And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, step off the mainland to explore Snoopy Island, enjoy the sand and surf at Sandy Beach, and step into the grandiose world of Al Hayl Castle.

Though most people associate United Arab Emirates only with Dubai, nicknamed the "City of Gold," the federation of seven emirates boats a surprisingly rich historical and cultural heritage and provides a good starting point for visitors interested in discovering the Middle East. A trip to United Arab Emirates reveals a modern nation with a dynamic atmosphere and a landscape that quickly changes from futuristic cities to remote deserts, mysteriously silent places where only the shifting sand dunes mark the passage of time. Add the eastern coastline to your United Arab Emirates itinerary to find a string of outstanding beaches and some of the finest diving and snorkeling opportunities in the region.
