AIRPORT TRANSFER

You will be met at Dubai International Airport, just outside the main (and only) exit. By your personal driver who will handle your luggage for you.

Head straight to the 5-Star Deluxe Hotel (TBA) where a SMART WOMEN RISING Company rep will greet you and help you with check in and orientation.

ARRIVING LATE

OUR FIRST “SISTER-MIND” Breakfast Meet & Greet

We’ll all have the chance to get to know each other and set our goals for the next 7 days, before…

LUNCH on the beach! Feet in the sand! At The Beach Bar & Grill. As the waves roll in so do the platters of salads and seafood. And we’ll have plenty of time to stroll the beach before we had back to the hotel.

The weekend in Dubai runs Friday-Saturday, with Friday being the equivalent of our Sunday. We’ll start the day at DUBAI FELLOWSHIP WORSHIP where Ambassador “Sujay” Cook will speak on the urgency of Religious Freedom worldwide. (Participation Optional)

In the AFTERNOON we’ll be hitting up all the wonders of MODERN DUBAI with our private guided tour, including the sail shaped Burj Al Arab and an elevator ride up 124 stories to the top of the tallest building in the world!

And for another perspective altogether, we’ll wrap up the city tour with a jaunt on DUBAI’S SEA PLANES to see the entire city from the sky itself.

A short recharge at our hotel will get us ready for a night on the town with …

DINNER & SHOW AT LA PERLE by Dragone, where we’ll witness the breathtaking performances of 64 artists who take acrobatics and aquatics to new heights. (Literally!)

suggested itinerary

ALL DAY ABU DHABI EXCURSION

After breakfast, we’ll embark on the short 65 mile drive south to Abu Dhabi. Our first stop will be the majestic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque whose world famous white marble structure includes 82 domes!

A drive along the Abu Dhabi Corniche will give us scenic views of the Arabian Gulf, as we head to the opulent Emirates Palace—the official government palace of the UAE government.

After lunch at the Abd El Wahab (featuring Mid-Eastern specialites,) we’ll continue with either the PEARL JOURNEY where we’ll take a Traditional Wooden dhow to the sea, learn about the importance of the pearling industry, and each of us discover a real pearl for ourselves! (Guaranteed!) Or…a 2nd option will be to visit the breathtaking Abu Dhabi “Louvre” whose floating dome has wowed audiences from all over the world. Upon our return to Dubai, we’ll have the evening free to rest up and get ready for our early morning International SUMMIT!

suggested itinerary

TODAY WE HOST THE INAUGURAL SMART WOMEN RISING INTERNATIONAL SUMMIT! We’ll be inviting the groups that have welcomed us, as well as many new entrepreneurs & women leaders. No better place to launch the Summit than Dubai where 90% of the city’s population are Ex-Pats. The morning will include plenty of networking!!

LUNCH & AFTERNOON ON OWN to head back to the Souks for some last chance shopping or to explore any one of Dubai’s amazing Malls.

DOWNTOWN by night. We’ve seen the postcards. Now it’s time to fully enjoy the magic of Dubai lit against a midnight blue sky. Champagne cocktail at the ZETA LOUNGE for the best view of all.

DINNER at THIPTARA--one of Dubai’s best known Thai specialty restaurants-- where our terrace seats will offer us an intimate view of the famous Dubai Fountain Show.

suggested itinerary

TODAY IS OUR LAST DAY IN THE EMIRATES! So, we’ve left the morning open to be sure you have the time to see and do anything still on your list! Maybe even lunch with new friends in Dubai!

At 2:00 we depart in our 4 x 4 dune buggies for a most extraordinary adventure in the desert.

Our private farewell “DESERT GALA” will include it all: with Arabian hors d’oeuvres, belly dancing, henna painting, and the wild falcon show.

No Desert experience would be complete without camels…and we will have them for anyone who wants to take a camel spin (highly encouraged!)

The evening will be topped off with a delicious Bedouinstyle BBQ and star gazing in the desert stillness. For those of you who have never experienced the Arabian Desert by night this is an experience that will stir you to your depths and one you will remember forever.

“TIME TO SAY GOODBYE” TO THE AMAZING DUBAI!

The end of our adventure in Dubai is just the beginning of new adventures for 2020. We will all be staying in touch through SMART WOMEN RISING and building on the new friendships created!
