What do Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha do when they're going through difficult times? They go on a proper vacation! Where to? Where else than to the Middle East, or more precisely Abu Dhabi. An epic journey spiced up with oriental vibes and luxury fashion can begin! Do you long for a vacation inspired by Sex and the City? We've prepared the most perfect itinerary for you!
You can fly to Abu Dhabi with the airline Etihad Airways. Opt for Business Class and enjoy refreshing cocktails and gourmet cuisine including Arabic hummus throughout your journey. In 9 hours, you'll land at the Abu Dhabi Airport. Welcome to the world of perfection, luxury and heat!
The exquisite hotel occupies an area of 85 hectares and is surrounded by stunning gardens. It offers wonderful views of the Persian Gulf. The opulent rooms have their own balconies, and booking a luxury suite even gives you the opportunity to relax in a hot tub or use the services of a personal valet.
Remember the iconic scene in which Carrie walks around the old spice market in a J'Adore Dior T-shirt, a Zac Posen skirt, and Manolo Blahnik sandals? Follow her example and head to the spice market too! We recommend that you don't hold back with the shopping, because you might never see the likes of what you can get here again!
This is what we call luxury! Sheikh Zayed's Grand Mosque is the only place of its kind that non-Muslims are allowed to enter. It is beautiful, adorned with a total of 82 white domes of various sizes. Its construction cost a little under 13 billion crowns and it can hold 40,000 believers. The mosque is the largest in the UAE and one of the largest in the world. And it also boasts the largest carpet in the world as well as one of the largest chandeliers!
The desert resort Qasr Al Sarab will guarantee that you'll get to you enjoy similar experiences as the four famous ladies. It will appear in front of your eyes in the sand dunes like a mirage! This Arabic style oasis will blow your mind. It features a swimming pool and rooms that offer all the comfort you may require, including a deep bathtub and a rain shower. You can set out on a camel trek, ride across the dunes in fine-tuned cars, have a cup of traditional tea in a desert tent, or attend an Arabic cooking course. In the evening, the desert comes to life, so slip on a sexy dress and have fun at an open air barbecue!
And what to bring from a vacation in Abu Dhabi? Typical souvenirs include carpets (at least a little runner that fits in your suitcase), perfumes, dates and dallah - a traditional tea pot.
