A magnificent once-in-a-lifetime trip taking in the glitz and glam of Abud Dhabi and the charms of Chengdu, with all travel and a panda excursion

The wealthiest emirate of the UAE and its capital, Abu Dhabi is the pearl in the region’s rather shiny crown. In recent years, this ultra-modern city has thrust skywards with a towering skyline dominated by cloud-piercing skyscrapers. You’ll get to combine the charms of China’s Chengdu too for a truly once-in-a-lifetime trip.

Kick things off with three glamorous nights amidst the opulence of Abu Dhabi, bedding down at the elegant Park Rotana. Thanks to your superb location, discover everything from the world-famous, marble-clad Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque to the ponds, waterfalls and fountains of Sheikh Khalifa Park.

You'll move on to Chengdu next – home to China's most infamous furry friends – to enjoy three days of guided excursions in the capital of China's Sichuan province. You'll see these iconic black and white bears up close at the Panda Base Research Centre and take a visit to Jinli Street – part of the Temple of Marquis, lined with beautiful Qing Dynasty-style buildings. Then marvel at the Leshan Giant Buddha in Shizhong (a UNESCO World Heritage site) before a scenic boat trip.

You'll wind things down with five further nights immersing yourself in Abu Dhabi's dazzling cityscape, with a sleek stay at a central hotel that exudes up-to-date elegance throughout. With a cafe, restaurant and bar on site, you've got a convenient bite covered, and the outdoor pool provides a tempting respite from the midday heat. You're also close to the action here, with the F1 Racetrack, Ferrari World and more all within easy reach.
