BAKU, AZERBAIJAN

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - YALLA! -

What’s the deal? If you’re look­ing for a city es­cape with a mix of cul­ture and pam­per­ing, then head to the cap­i­tal city of Baku. The largest city on the Caspian Sea is home to more than two mil­lion peo­ple and at 28 me­tres be­low sea level, is the low­est ly­ing cap­i­tal city in the world. It’s re­garded as a rel­a­tively safe, af­ford­able des­ti­na­tion and you can spend three nights in a fives­tar ho­tel here and en­joy a guided tour of the city, re­turn flights, air­port trans­fers, and a ham­man ex­pe­ri­ence, honey mas­sage and fa­cial. How much? Start­ing from Dhs1,749 per per­son, in­clud­ing re­turn flights (you can de­part from Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Shar­jah). While you’re there: At the cen­tre of Baku lies its fa­mous, me­dieval walled Old City, a Unesco World Her­itage Site. And make sure you check out the palace com­plex, mosques and the iconic Maiden Tower, a 12th cen­tury mon­u­ment that houses a mu­seum that tells the story of Baku, and how it’s evolved over the cen­turies.
