In Dubai, luxury has taken on a whole new meaning. In fact, I bet that if you were given a day to write down every way that you could be spoiled while on a vacation, Dubai would introduce you to accomodations and coddling that you could never imagine! That said, most travelers don’t go across the world to simply be treated like a King or Queen, and Dubai has the true traveler taken care of as well. Leave an area like Madinat Jumeirah (a mock-Arabian city, home to a string of lavish hotels and leisure facilities) and make your way to the desert to to go do some Dune-Bashing and sand skiing. Afterwards, treat yourself to some traditional belly dancing, a great Arabian meal and maybe enjoy some sisha (hookah) like the locals.
If the dune riding doesnt do it for your adventure craving side, feel free to head to the Mall of the Emirates and go snow skiing. (I said it.) Have your breath absolutely taken away with a trip to the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi. Possibly the largest Mosque in the world, this extravagent palace puts some of the best churches in the world to shame. The Jumeirah Mosque is one of the few in the world that are open to the public, and may be the most beautiful in the country. If the Mosques impress you, be sure to visit Burj Khalifa in downtown Dubai. The tallest building in the world has an observation deck on the 124th floor where visitors will literally feel as though they are on top of the world!

"Having booked with The Escape Artist multiple times (Peru, Costa Rica, Kenya, Galapagos Islands) I knew that I wanted them to work with my girlfriends Mom on a family trip to Greece. John and Katie met us all out to go over the goals of the trip, like always. They built us a package based on our likes and dislikes, and they nailed it! Best part, mid trip wanted to alter our vacation a bit and spend more time in Mykonos. A simple email directly to them and everything was solved! They are fun to work with, but also amazing at what they do! Highly recommend giving them a shot!"Greg and Michelle
