Spring Break in Dubai


Experience the diversity of Dubai this spring! Known as The Golden City, luxury acclimates itself beautifully in this culturally rich, modern day trading post. Inspiration and ambition will awaken as you walk beneath the towering BURJ KHALIFA and take photos in front of the SAIL-SHAPED BURJ AL ARAB HOTEL. After taking in the cutting-edge architecture, set sail on an Abra (water taxi) to visit the fragrant and alluring GOLD SOUK (marketplace). Learn the newest strategies for sustainable renewable energy in MASDAR CITY. You will visit ancient mosques and historical sites in the ‘Pearl of the Gulf’, the EMIRATE OF SHARJAH, and learn the history of the UAE in its capital, ABU DHABI. Brave the ARABIAN DESERT during a thrilling dune drive. You will also have the opportunity to meet with local business and entrepreneurs during your time there!
