Emily Mossa - Travel Consultant “Dubai definitely has something for everyone - it is impossible to be bored there! I spent my holiday lazing on Jumeirah Beach, shopping to my heart’s content, visiting the world’s tallest building and taking on water slides - and that was just the start!

DUBA I

Stay in some of the world’s most ornate hotels, dine at award-winning restaurants, and enjoy unparalleled standards of service. There are so many amazing ways to fill your sun-soaked days in Dubai: enormous water parks, thousands of boutique and designer shops, superb golf courses, a fascinating aquarium, and an indoor ski slope- to name a few! Due to its superlative location, Dubai is laced with a choice of pristine beaches. The swathes of white sands and clear cyan seas are perfect for water sports and relaxing days spent sunbathing. Discover more... Alongside the generous, extravagant modernity, you’ll find quaint reminders of Dubai’s exotic and multifaceted past, from the famous souks to the dhows that still cross the Dubai Creek. Immerse yourself in the perfumed Spice Souk, or take a sparkling stroll among pearls and precious gems at the arcades of the Gold Souk. A hot-air balloon ride at sunrise showcases the serene beauty of the seemingly rose- coloured, enigmatic desert. Visit Dubai’s modern-day oases, in the form of grandiose shopping malls, or take a trip to the Dubai Museum, which is situated in an 18th- century fort.
