Abu Dhabi — 2 nights

Take a trip to Abu Dhabi to discover a modern metropolis built on a strip of land jutting out into the Persian Gulf.
Get in touch with nature at Nation Riviera Beach Club and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Etihad Towers and The Founder's Memorial. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, steep yourself in history at Heritage Village, and go for a walk through The Corniche.

Ras Al Khaimah — 3 nights

Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Jabal Bil Ays and Khatts Springs. Take a break from the city and head to Canyoning & Rappelling Tours and Al Hamra Golf Club. The adventure continues: relax in the rural setting at Suwaidi Pearls.
