Dubai Holidays

don't miss

Feel giddy at the top of the Burj Khalifa or take tea at the Burj Al Arab, marvelling at mind-blowing views.

Ogle at the extravagance of the Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping centre.

A walk or cycle ride along the Dubai Water Canal, for cool breezes and downtown views.

Be bowled over by incredible sights on your Dubai holiday. Picture the world’s tallest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa, soaring into the sky, or the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab, set against gleaming Jumeirah Beach. Explore the man-made Palm Islands, stretching theatrically into the Persian Gulf, or the glitzy shopping malls, dripping with luxury. Admire shimmering jewels in the Gold Souk, breathe the smell of cinnamon in the Spice Souk or haggle for silks in the Textile Souk, fitting in an abra ride across Dubai Creek. Dubai is a blast for families, with enough theme parks to keep the kids enthralled for weeks. Throw snowballs at Ski Dubai, trek the rainforest at the Green Planet or brush up on bhangra at Bollywood Parks, themed on Indian blockbusters. Escape the city in the desert sands, to watch falcons swooping or to ride a buggy across the dunes.
