Into the Luxury of Dubai
Nothing can quite compare to the luxury and splendour experienced when you set foot in the megacity of Dubai, and those embarking on Jebel Ali holidays can expect all the modernised wonders and natural beauty associated with the city. You’ll find this region of the city located just a few kilometres outside of the grand and busy downtown Dubai area, and you’ll find that Jebel Ali provides a great base from which to explore the central hub and outer reaches of the city.
For many, you’ll find few reasons to leave the area during your holidays in Jebel Ali, whether it is the high-end resorts that keep you grounded, the stunning white beaches or the immaculate golf courses, there is so much to Dubai discovered within Jebel Ali itself. While the wealth and grandeur is one thing, you’ll also uncover signs of the unique culture of UAE during your time in Dubai, with a distinct Arabic feel detected throughout the area in what was once an authentic city of the Middle East.
Things to do in Jebel Ali
Jebel Ali, of course, is all about soaking up the extravagant surroundings and some of those well-deserved rays.
When you’ve decided you’ve had enough of R&R, then the busy streets of Dubai are only a few kilometres down the road – definitely don’t miss the opportunity to experience the Middle East’s crowning glory. Go bargain hunting at the traditional Arabian souk markets, or stretch your wallet at the many lavish shopping malls and extravagant boutiques. Whilst there, be sure to head to the tallest building in the world – the Burj Khalifa – and check out the stunning view from the observation gallery. A ‘Day and Night’ pass can be bought, allowing you to check out the city from above during the day and after dark. If you’ve got kids with you, then they will absolutely love the Lost Chambers Aquarium, modelled on the sunken kingdom of Atlantis, and showcasing the best of the fabulous local marine life.
Finding Adventure in the Big City
Indulging in comforts and luxuries comes only too easy when you choose to embark on Jebel Ali holidays, and one of the world’s most relevant megacities doesn’t do things in halves when it comes to excitement and entertainment. Whether it is shopping, breath-taking architectural feats or beautiful natural treats, you’ll never be more than a stone’s throw from something truly remarkable. Water parks, restaurants and private beaches can be enjoyed within your very own 5-star resort, but getting into the heart of Dubai for some exploration will reveal you to the true treasures of this special destination.
If you're there to shop 'til you drop, you won't need to go far. With a fantastic array of world-class shopping centres housing everything from high street to designer stores, you'll find what you're looking for in Jebel Ali. Also most hotels operate a free shuttle to the main shopping areas, which means you don't have to fork out for a taxi!
If you're looking for some downtime, head to the pristine Jebel Ali beaches. Feel the sugar white sand between your toes, the desert sun on your skin, and the fresh sea breeze as you kick back and top up you tan. It's also a great place to enjoy a leisurely swim, so take a break from the sun and take a dip!
Evening entertainment is mainly centred in the hotel complexes. With a great collection of international restaurants to the unique bars and first-class evening entertainment, there are plenty of things to see and do when night falls, like everywhere else in Dubai.
