Turn your holiday into an adventure

If you're looking for a super-special holiday, Dubai isn't just perfect for grabbing your last rays of sunshine before the winter kicks in, it has a whole lot more to offer.

Beautiful beaches, superb shopping, adventure sports, theme parks, underwater adventures, record breaking sights, great food and a very warm welcome.


This amazing city is less than a 7 hour flight away and when you get here, the whole family will be completely spoilt for choice.

You've just got to…

There are thousands of unbelievable experiences to be had, but while you're here, make time for a Friday Brunch; it's become a bit of an institution.

For a very different view of Dubai, you can't beat a jeep safari into the desert and dinner under the stars, or why not take a hot air balloon ride to see the shifting sands in all their glory.

Time travelling in Dubai

After taking in modern Dubai, it's lovely to slow down and travel back in time.

The Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood is a fascinating area of alleyways, courtyards, museums and art galleries. Here you'll also find the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding. With the motto 'Open Doors. Open Minds' the SMCCU is a great way to find out more about the local culture, customs and religion.

Once you've got a taste for the slower pace, take a leisurely trip across Dubai Creek in a traditional Abra boat and haggle your way to a bargain in the spice and gold souks.

Let's hit the beach

Shady cabanas, pool bars, beach games, soft golden sands, watersports… whatever floats your boat; luxury, party or family-friendly, it's all about the beach club!


Check out 18 of Dubai's best and catch the beach holiday vibe.



We're excited to say that Dubai has been chosen as one of Telegraph Travel's 25 Best Destinations for Winter Sun!
