Itinerary for Pearls of Arabia

Day 1 - Fly overnight to Dubai

Day 2 - Transfer to hotel in Abu Dhabi

Day 3 - Enjoy Abu Dhabi

Day 4 - Embark Crystal Symphony in Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is a bustling city with extraordinary sky scrapers, wide, tree-lined boulevards, and some of the most elite cultural destinations. This city is considered the wealthiest city in the world, but still retains a humble charm with its central souk and artisan hub for traditional crafts.

Day 5 - Doha

Day 6 - Doha

Day 7 - Manama, Bahrain

The capital of Bahrain, Manama offers a compelling mix of local culture and world influences. Just under one-third of the Persian-Gulf city's residents hail from other countries, giving it an infusion of international sensibilities. The result: An abundance of chic clubs and luxury accommodations, making Manama the place to shop and dine. Chances to become immersed in the Manama of the past are readily available too, as Arab boats called dhows populate the waters, and camel rides and pearl diving excursions remain popular ways to experience traditional pursuits. As for the future, it is bright and grand, as represented by plans for the Murjan Tower, envisioned to be the world's tallest structure.

Day 8 - Dubai

Tiny Dubai is a member of the United Arab Emirates, the cluster of prosperous sheikdoms along the Arabian Sea. Dubai grew rich on pearls and gold, but today its bread and butter is petroleum, a source of fabulous wealth. In the offshore oil fields of Dubai are three submerged oil tanks, each twenty stories tall, which locals call “The Three Pyramids of Dubai.

Day 10 - Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, saw its first paved road in 1961, a few years after oil was discovered in the area. Since then, development has been at times cautious and later vigorous, resulting in today's wide modern boulevards lined with glistening towers. The city's banks, boutiques and highrises stand testament to a vital economy. Indeed, Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the UAE, is not only the most prosperous Emirate, but is also considered the wealthiest city in the world. With its ongoing commitment to science, education and the arts, Abu Dhabi is also seeking to be ranked as one of the world's top cultural destinations. The groundwork has recently been laid for a 200-million-dollar Guggenheim Museum, designed by none other than Frank Gehry. Scheduled for completion in 2011, the museum will showcase a prestigious collection of modernist and contemporary art. The structure promises to be a masterpiece in and of itself, as it promises to be the largest of the Guggenheim museums.
