We invite you to let The Evolved Traveler take you on a truly immersive, one-of-a-kind, 12-day journey to the United Arab Emirates where you will engage with the people, places, and culture all while exploring the unique sights, scents, and sounds of one of the world’s most eclectic and exotic destinations.

Destination Overview

The United Arab Emirates is genuinely one of the world’s intriguing destinations. While renowned today for thriving and glitzy metropolises, one does not have to venture far to see those living life in much the same way they have for centuries. With cities evolving every day to desert sands, never touched by man, the UAE is truly a study in contrasts – literally and figuratively.

Begin in Sharjah, 15 minutes from the city center of Dubai on the Persian Gulf coast. Sharjah. It has been declared by UNESCO as a Cultural Capital of the Arab World and Capital of Islamic Culture, deservedly so. Learn about the incredible scientific discoveries made by Islamic scholars at the Museum of Islamic Civilisation before strolling along one of the most scenic waterfronts in the Middle East.

Next, the bustling beauty of Dubai, the world-renown city that grows every day – in almost every way!  From the incredible artificial islands of The Palm to the breathtaking heights of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, there is literally nothing Dubai doesn’t offer.

Continue to Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates capital. With a more laid-back tempo than Dubai,  Abu Dhabi is the wealth center of the UAE and quietly becoming the ‘Cultural Capital’ of the Middle East. Literally a city built from the sand within a 30-year period, Abu Dhabi is a state-of-the-art wonder, including sustainable cities within a city, an NYU campus, a Formula 1 race track, and world-class attractions such as the architectural jewel, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.  Already drawing visitors from around the world is the Louvre Abu Dhabi, renowned not only for a stunning collection of antiquities and art but for a stunning display of architecture.  It will soon be joined by the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi and Zayed National Museum.
