Give yourself and loved ones an unforgettable holiday gift: a total annular solar eclipse from sea. The timing and location couldn’t be better for this dramatic event that will take place on December 26 at 9 AM. And that’s just one of many reasons to say “yes” to this exotic holiday getaway.

The party begins in Dubai with an overnight stay. Reserve your spot for tea at the luxurious Burj Al Arab hotel, take a ride to the top floors of Burj Khalifa, and shop for all that glitters at the Gold Souk. Don’t miss Doha’s Museum of Islamic Art, a showcase of 1,400 years of art from three continents. Abu Dhabi is another delightful experience, and the jaw-dropping jewel here is Sheikh Zayed Mosque, an astounding monument whose beauty rivals the Taj Mahal. Yas Island is a playground for adults, where you can race on a Formula One track or ride the world’s fastest roller coaster. In Muscat you’ll find a beautifully preserved old city, splendid beaches, traditional souks and the elegant Al Bustan Palace Hotel. All that and an eclipse too.

Includes an AzAmazing Evening in Oman - A Night at the Royal Opera House.
