Dazzling Holidays to Dubai

As an oasis in the middle of the desert, this captivating metropolis never fails to impress with its cosmopolitan vibe and futuristic style. Home to ultra-modern architecture, world class shopping malls, beaches to die for, glamorous restaurants and clubs; Dubai holidays have the whole package, and more besides.

A wealth of activities will keep any visitor entertained regardless of what you're into. Soak up the sun by the sea, go on a desert adventure, hunt down the best tax-free bargains in town, discover Middle Eastern culture and history, or just enjoy the view from the top of the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

Things to do in Dubai

You'll never be at a loss when it comes to finding things to do in Dubai. If lazing by the pool or basking on the beach isn't your thing, there are endless adventurous activities to choose from. A hot air balloon ride over the desert, a camel safari, or even indoor skiing on real snow slopes are all readily available, and that's just for starters.

Desert Stays and Beach Retreats

Dubai holidays have their fair share of luxury accommodation, ranging from suites worthy of royalty to elegant but somewhat more affordable hotels. The most sumptuous resorts are found at the marina, where pampering, wining and dining are the primary activities. If a lively nightlife and restaurants to salivate over are what you want from holidays to Dubai, the Dubai Marina is the place to be. Jumeirah Beach is the best spot for sun, sea and sand and has a number of premier resorts. Shopaholics and culture vultures will be content in Deira, home of Dubai's famous souks and a cacophony of sounds, sights and smells.

The World at your Feet

Without the simmering heat and golden sunshine, Dubai could be mistaken for any modern city in the world. Until you get out there and explore it for yourself, that is. Cutting edge architecture mixed with beautiful beaches and contemporary Middle Eastern lifestyle makes this a truly unique destination with everything to offer. Romantic resorts, children's theme parks, desert safaris, trendy night clubs, mouth-watering global cuisine and shopping malls that have to be seen to be believed, and these are just the tip of the iceberg.

There is more to Dubai holidays than fun in the sun, however. The Deira souks, Grand Mosque and Bastakia Quarter – Dubai's 'old town' – prove that Middle Eastern culture is alive and well in the city. Holidays to Dubai are for those who want sun and luxury; it's a unique and important global city that is making its own history as we speak. There is no better time to visit Dubai, except maybe during winter, when temperatures soar.
