DUBAI, 18 March 2019: One of the world’s most visited cities, Dubai is promoting a Go Dubai Pass that offers bargains at 35 top attractions.
Dubai claims tourist arrivals peaked at 14 million last year not counting the millions who visit the airport to connect with flights worldwide.
But the challenge is always to convince travellers who transit at Dubai gateway airport to step beyond immigration and enjoy Dubai’s sightseeing.
The all-inclusive Go Dubai Pass (www.godubaipass.com) offers a choice of more than 35 attractions, tours and experiences designed to help travellers discover the adventure and cultural faces of the city.
The top recommendation for Go Dubai Pass holders is to start with the hop-on, hop-off bus tour. There are three separate routes with more than 40 stops to disembark and explore popular areas and attractions on foot.
The Go Dubai Pass includes a 24-hour ticket for the hop-on, hop-off buses.
The tour comes with 12 different languages channelled to passengers through a commentary app synchronised to the stops.
Another top attraction offered in the pass features a visit to the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building where on the observation deck you can enjoy 360-degree views, 465 metres above the ground on the iconic skyscraper’s 124th and 125th levels.
At sea level the pass gets you aboard a state-of-the-art 90-minute speed boat sightseeing tour from Xclusive Yachts that leaves from Dubai Marina. The trip takes in major landmarks including Atlantis and the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel.
At a much slower speed, there’s an option to book the Dubai Creek Dhow Dinner Cruise on a traditional wooden Dhow vessel, winding through the salt creek that bisects the city’s commercial district, while you enjoy an all-inclusive buffet dinner.
The most popular activity for pass holders is the six-hour Desert Safari and BBQ Dinner excursion on 4×4 vehicles that head for a remote desert camp for a traditional Arabian BBQ and entertainment. It includes a thrilling drive through the sand dunes and the grandeur of a desert sunset.
The Go Dubai Pass claims to save up to 52% on admission fees at top Dubai attractions. The lead-in pass price starts at USD299.19 per adult for up two days. Once you have paid for the pass there are no charges at attraction gates.
Go Dubai Pass holders receive their passes by email and can choose to print them at home, or go for the fully mobile sightseeing experience by using their pass direct from a smartphone via the free Go City app.
