“We are thrilled to announce our latest Facebook giveaway”
At the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa, Dubai is known as one of the most extravagant VIP hot spots in the world, a mecca of luxury, and a must-see destination for anyone who truly loves exotic travel. The “Be Dazzled by Dubai” sweepstakes will take one lucky winner and guest to explore the glitz and glam, unparalleled luxury, superb cuisine, and outstanding architecture that define this city surrounded by desert.
“We are thrilled to announce our latest Facebook giveaway,” says Peggy Goldman, President of Friendly Planet Travel. “This luxurious tour to Dubai gives travelers a chance to live like the rich and the famous—at least for a few days—and experience a lavish getaway. Dubai is a must-see destination with breathtaking sights that will create memories for a lifetime.”
The Dazzling Dubai giveaway includes round-trip airfare from New York (JFK) via Emirates, one of the world’s top airlines; fuel surcharges, airline taxes, and fees; arrival and departure transfers; buffet breakfast daily; a professional English-speaking tour director, touring, and accommodations at the deluxe, centrally located, elegant Fairmont Hotel in Dubai.
The adventure begins with a city tour, which includes stops at the picturesque Dubai Creek that divides the city into two parts, and the Bastakiya District, where traditional courtyard homes have been restored to preserve the unique ambience of the city. From here, travelers head to the Dubai Museum to learn about the importance of the date palm to the desert culture; the maritime traditions of fishing, pearl-diving, and boat building; and where life-size dioramas offer a fascinating view of life in Dubai before the discovery of oil. Then, travelers experience the bustling, exotic souks, filled with beautiful and well-priced textiles, spices, and gold. A highlight of the Dubai program is an included visit to the fabulous Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. The tour also includes transportation on the Abra Water taxi, the city’s most reliable and popular form of transportation.
