Dubai is a vibrant and exciting destination, it is a splendour of 5, 6 and even 7* luxurious hotels and is perfect for a city break with the extra perk. The image that would come to mind is that of Sheiks, money, yachts and man-made islands built in the shape of palm trees. Famous for everything that’s the biggest and best you really wouldn’t want to miss the world’s tallest building the Burj Khalifa or the world’s first 7-star hotel, The Burj Al Arab, shaped like a sail. The Hotel is so exclusive that you can’t just go inside for a look… you need to book at least a meal for that privilege.
If you think a city break is your thing in Dubai, picture spa’s and beaches. For the more adventurous how about exploring the Wadi’s by quad bike or feasting in Bedouin tents under the stars.
For those who like to shop until they drop, there is a range of exclusive, designer stores. Or maybe relaxing on the golf range is more your thing…tee off in world-class golf resorts! If none of the previous sounds like your cup of tea and the main aim on your holiday to Dubai is to unwind and enjoy complete relaxation…then the warm waters of the gulf, beautiful sandy beaches and first class accommodation will ensure you can do so in amazing surroundings.
Named At the Top on the 124th floor, it comes with an outdoor observation deck. With scenic views over Dubai, the observation deck also features the Behold Telescope, which allows visitors to view the surrounding landscape in real-time. That really is a sight to behold!
Safa Park is located in the centre of the city and boasts three lakes… the largest of which has a fountain and touring boats. You can also take a stroll around the park and take in the waterfall bird watch, or just enjoy the green space with a picnic and good company.
The world’s biggest shopping mall…Dubai Shopping Mall is the epitome of heaven for those who love to shop. It has over 1,200 retail outlets so if you can’t find what you are looking for here… you really won’t find it anywhere. Get prepared to max out that credit card!
Visiting for a Family Holiday to Dubai? Then a family visit for the adventurous may involve a sky dive, kids can swim with dolphins, splash about in the water parks, visit the Dubai aquarium and underwater zoo or even go indoor skiing!
The Dubai fountains provide entertainment for all ages… the fountains, which shoot 50 metres into the sky to music is something that really cannot be missed.
When to visit
The best time to visit Dubai is from November to March. Weather wise, Dubai really only experiences two seasons: hot and hotter. During the winter months, the city sees blue skies and prime beach weather. However, this is also peak tourist season, so expect plenty of company on Jumeirah Beach.
