After this, you will delve into the gigantic Mall of Emirates, a massive shopping center housing Ski Dubai: the world’s largest indoor ski slope. Dubai’s metro is another great step towards modernity: it is the only driverless and fully automated underground in the Arabian Gulf. It even offers its passengers a ride to the “ceiling” of the world: The Burj Khalifa or Khalifa Tower. This incredible skyscraper is the tallest structure in the world and along with Burj Al Arab, are the landmarks of the country.

The tour continues into the grounds of Heritage Village and Emirates Palace, a 7-star hotel famously known as the most luxurious hotel in the world. Just before lunch at a typical local restaurant, you will admire the Palace of the Sheikh, which was, of course, once home of Sheikh Zayed, the founder of the country.
After lunch in a typical restaurant, you will head to the Abu Dhabi Louvre museum. A joint venture between the UAE and France, the Louvre has become an instant must-see site in Abu Dhabi. The first of its kind in the region, the Louvre represents the contemporary value of the Arab world. It combines the UAE's vision of cultural progression together with France's rich expertise in the world of arts and museums. It possesses artifacts from the begging of mankind to the present day. Not only is it interesting from a cultural standpoint, but the Louvre is also an architectural masterpiece.
