The Modern Marvels of Dubai


Rising from the Arabian desert, on the Persian Gulf, is the luxurious and futuristic city of Dubai. Said to be settled in the 18th-century as a fishing village, Dubai has come a long way since then. Though forts and watchtowers remain from that time, skyscrapers and man-made islands create an entirely different aesthetic. As modern as Dubai has become, there is an undercurrent of tradition that keeps. Dubai has defied the harsh terrain to be become one of the most well-known metropolises in the world.


  • Dubai has outdone itself, and other cities, in many aspects. Including the Burj Al Arab Hotel, known as the most luxurious hotel in the world. This uniquely shaped hotel was built on a man-made island just off the coast. An engineering feat of fantastic proportions, the Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world. Its needle-like pinnacle reaches 2,722 ft above the city below. As if these were not enough, Dubai has created an artificial archipelago in the shape of a palm tree with a semi-formed circle around it – the Palm Jumeirah. These marvels of the modern world are a must-see when in the UAE.



  • The area around Dubai is also full of activities to take in the outdoors. The traveler can take in the desert within the comfort of glamping, luxurious accommodations in nature. Hiking through foothills of mountains all around the area gives the traveler a stunning view of still lands. Diving along the coast will reveal a shipwreck, sea life, and even a purposefully sunk barge. Add in a chance to paraglide, skydive, and explore the dunes in a 4×4 – and you’ve got a full experience for the traveler’s desire for adventure.



  • Starting on Oct. 20th, 2020 and ending on Apr. 10th, 2021 – Dubai will be hosting the Expo 2020 Dubai. This 173-day expo is set to be the ultimate event involving culture, technology, music, and creativity from around the world. There will be over 200 food and beverage outlets to taste the spectrum of our planet’s culinary variety. Workshops and performances involving the arts of people from all over the globe. This massive event to promote global cooperation will be a coming together of all people, and the traveler has plenty of time to visit during the almost half-year run.



Dubai is many things. A luxurious getaway to be pampered, a look into the future of megacities, man-made marvels of the modern world, and an example of globalization. That’s why Ya’lla Tours has setup tours for the traveler to experience the sites and activities of Dubai, including specific tours involving the amazing Expo 2020 Dubai.

Dubai Stopover



Dubai is a city of ages that rises out of the desert and crowns the gulf coast with its presence, a melting pot of traditional culture and modernism. Your tour will take you on a journey through the old and new Dubai. First, stroll through the spice market, fish, fruit & vegetable market and the Gold Souk. Continue to the Bastakia area to view the traditional wind towers and the old Fahidi Fort, which is the Dubai History Museum today. Experience the traditional way of commuting over the creek by Abra (water taxi) to discover the new, modern Dubai.

Wonders of Arabia



Learn about Emirati culture with a traditional breakfast at Shiekh Mohamed Center for Cultural Understanding (SMCCU)**, a non-profit organization formed by Shiekh Mohamed Bin Rashid, housed in a typical wind-tower house in the heart of the old Bastakia area. An Emirati guide will accompany you for an open discussion about the local traditions and religion.
