The opulent emirate of Dubai is a place where the Persian Gulf meets the Arabian Desert, where glamour meets glitz, and where unspoiled beaches and indigo seas meet designer shops and intoxicating nightlife. The perfect place for a hedonistic holiday, it’s also a seductive destination where you can swim with dolphins, camp in the desert and dine at world-class restaurants under the sea or high up in the sky.

Hotels here are the height of luxury, dazzling with excess and brimming with opulent restaurants and extravagant spas. Stray from your resort and discover magnificent skyscrapers, including the world’s tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa, and the adjacent Dubai Mall, where you’ll find an array of designer shops, an indoor ice rink, a huge aquarium and even a Marks and Spencer if you’re feeling homesick. It’s also well worth taking in the Dubai Fountain Show, designed by the creators of the Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas. Skydive out of a plane 4,000 metres above The Palm, camp Bedouin style under the stars, ride an abra along the Dubai Creek at sunset or enjoy a hot air balloon flight over red-gold desert sands.

See the island

Burj Khalifa

Visit Burj Khalifa and experience the heady heights of the world’s tallest tower. Take a high speed lift to the 124th floor and enjoy 360º views of Dubai and the desert beyond from the observation terrace, a thrilling experience!


Rides and slides

Fun for all the family, sample camel riding and sandboarding surrounded by the alluring hues of the Dubai desert. Start the morning with a thrilling four wheel drive to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and swap your car for a camel to experience the traditional Bedouin mode of transport. After a gentle 30 minute ride, you’ll dismount, only to strap on a sandboard and let loose as you cruise down the dunes to the desert floor below. If this part isn’t for you, sit back and watch as the kids have a go.


Hajar Mountains

If you’re keen to explore further afield, why not escape to the ‘Grand Canyons’ of the Hajar Mountains with an exhilarating off-road experience. You’ll encounter an awe-inspiring array of deep gorges, rugged peaks and traditional mud-brick villages, before stopping for lunch at a scenic spot in the range. Head back to Dubai via the fishing village of Dibba, the pretty oasis town of Masafi and a local camel farm.


Falconry in the desert

What could be better than seeing first-hand how the Bedouin, famous for their skills in falconry, train these fascinating birds in the desert. Enjoy a breathtaking demonstration, learn about the unique personalities of the birds and take the glove and have a go yourself.
