Orientation to Dubai

For a unique 3 hours you will be transported back to the 1950’s & 1960’s when the towns of Abu Dhabi and Dubai were still undergoing an extraordinary metamorphosis from small villages in which the indigenous people lived a third world nomadic existence with little education and no money, to stunning Cities of the 21st Century where everything is available at your beck and call. This was the dream of H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nayahan, the late President of the UAE, and H.H. Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, father of the present ruler of Dubai, both visionaries who set their country on its course to world recognition. Mobile: +971 50 6578445 - susharyn@eim.ae
