The UAE’s most popular city. Transformed from simple desert into dazzling luxury, exclusivity and innovation. Dubai is home to the world’s tallest building, largest shopping mall, distinctive palm-shaped islands and first seven-star hotel.
Thousands of western workers, celebrity chefs, sports stars and TV personalities now call this modern metropolis home, whilst others keep a holiday home on its sandy palm fronds.
Families with (or without!) children will love Dubai Resorts and Parks. Romantics may go for the ultimate short city break, or incorporate a stay here as part of a multi-centre itinerary. In the city you can make a splash at Wild Wadi Waterpark and experience Jumeirah’s exclusive waterfront. For total contrast head to the desert and cruise over the dunes in a 4X4 safari or ski-board on sandy slopes.
If you’ve a head for heights, the top of the Burj Khalifa will allow you to see curvature of the Earth! There are also helicopter tours, dhow sail-boat cruises and horse-riding treks.
Dubai is also famous for its Friday brunches, shopping sprees, horse racing, golf and amazing nightlife – and the list goes on!
