Travel to Dubai with us

It’s hard to believe that Dubai was once little more than a small fishing village sitting on the coast of the Persian Gulf.

The discovery of oil changed the area beyond all recognition, leading to rapid development that has resulted in Dubai now being one of the most extravagant destinations in the world for anyone looking for an overseas adventure.

Modern day Dubai has become a key travel destination in the United Arab Emirates, with some of the best five star hotels in the world waiting with open arms to welcome those looking for a touch of luxury.

You could easily spend your time in the Emirate enjoying everything that your hotel has to offer, but there is plenty to see and do if you head out to explore the surrounding area.

You could go shopping in some of the largest malls in the world, explore the intriguing mixture of modern day buildings - which includes the tallest in the world - and traditional structures that hark back to a bygone era, or visit a raft of leisure facilities that includes everything from waterparks to a giant indoor ski slope - something you certainly wouldn’t expect to find in the middle of the desert.

Whilst popular as a resort in its own right, Dubai is also a great place to visit as part of a multi-centre break, being the ideal stopping off point for a range of destinations across Asia and beyond.

Whatever your reason for visiting, Dubai is a city that will never fail to deliver.

Things To Do

Enjoy easy Access

Okay so it’s a bit further than the likes of Spain or Italy, but as a major transport hub, Dubai is hugely accessible no matter where you are looking to fly from - and the flight times are relatively short for a longer haul destination.

Relax in luxury

Dubai is packed with luxurious hotels including one - the Burj Al Arab - that is often regarded as the most impressive of the lot. The hotel has been referred to through the years as the first seven-star property in the world but there are plenty of other options for those who want to ensure that their holiday experience is extra special.

Visit a destination that both hot - and cool...

You’re travelling to a desert location so the temperatures are going to be pretty high regardless of the time of year you are travelling. But at the same time, there is no doubting the fact that Dubai is a cool place to visit with everything it has to offer. Visit the indoor ski slope and it’s even cool in a literal sense…

Embark on a multi-centre break

Dubai is a hub for a huge number of flights that are heading from Europe towards Asia and the South Pacific, which makes it the ideal location for a multi-centre break.

Sit back on brilliant beaches

Even though Dubai is surrounded by sand, you might not think of it as a beach destination - but you’d be wrong. Dubai is actually home to some fantastic beaches on which to relax under the sun, some of which are natural and some of which are man made.

Hit the shops

New York, Paris and Milan are three destinations that spring to mind if you are looking for an overseas shopping break - but Dubai is more than a match. Dubai Mall is one of THE best shopping malls in the world and home to the very best designer brands, but at the other end of the scale, Dubai also houses traditional souks where you can barter for a bargain.

Celebrate history

Dubai has a well earned reputation for luxury but alongside the 5* hotels and the towering skyscrapers, there is ample opportunity to explore what Dubai used to be like. Head for Old Dubai on the banks of Dubai Creek to marvel at sights that are in stark contrast to the bright lights of the modern city, whilst also sampling traditional food and drink with the locals.

Take the family

Travelling with the children in tow? Then Dubai has way more to offer than you might have imagined - including the biggest waterpark in the Far East. There are also various theme parks where youngsters are guaranteed to have a good time and there is plenty more on offer if you take the short trip to Abu Dhabi for a visit to Ferrari World; the park themed around the famous Italian carmaker.
