Fancy a Holiday in Dubai? Here's Our Picks:
To holiday in Dubai is to drink in the luxury of a brand new city, which has effectively emerged from the desert over the past few decades. One of the seven Emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates, Dubai has become symbolic for its man-made Islands, sky rise buildings; such as the Burj Khalifa and some of the largest shopping malls in the world!
There are a huge number of activities to keep you occupied whilst on holiday in Dubai, including dune bashing, scuba diving, camel riding, luxury shopping and discovering the delicious cuisine of the Middle East.
It’s important to remember that Dubai, and the Middle East in general, is extremely hot in the summer months, so you may want to look at Dubai as a destination for early Spring, Autumn or Winter getaways. That said, occupancy rates can be lower in the summer months, so you may be able to grab yourself a bargain especially if you love the heat!
There are a plethora of luxury 5-star hotels to choose from whilst on holiday in Dubai. Below are some of the best we have to offer the more discerning traveler.
