Dubai

A shimmering and diverse mega-hub has risen up and out of the desert as a rival to any western city in size and to any Asian metropolis in culture. The sand, the sea, the glass, the steel, the snow, yes, the snow, albeit indoors. This city has got it all. Sitting high in the ranks as a family destination, Dubai is the blue-print for the new space-age metropolis going forward. Other cities in the region do not compare, yet Dubai it not even a city, it is an Emirate, one of 7, independent Arab states united into one border to Saudi Arabia and another to the Sultanate of Oman. Each Emirate is very diverse including Abu Dhabi which is a mere two hours by road and also the famous Sharjah and Al Ain. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are a very good combination if you have the time. Dubai is a destination and not just a stopover even though it is within 9 hours flying time from two thirds of the world’s population and is the fastest growing connecting hub ever. This is the Jewel on the Persian Gulf.

Daytime or at night the city opens up all it’s attractive features like the calm blue sea or the skyline from one of the unique island set-ups best visible from the air, yes, skydiving is one of the 1000’s of ideas to fill up a good holiday or even within a business trip to this unique and growing Middle-East example of a well oiled melting pot. The heat surrounds you so keeping hydrated will ensure full advantage is taken whilst capturing each exciting stimulant that this sparkling wonderland offers. From souks to sheesha, the creek to the beach, the malls to the islands, the glitzy hotels to the wadi bashing, Dubai is on the top ten list of most people’s travel dream destinations.

One cannot forget to shop while on holiday and many visitors are in Dubai to only shop. Many of the locals own shops and are open to deals and bartering, yet this is not practiced in the high end name brand stores of which there are many with all brands such as clothing, electronics, cars, home-ware, jewellery and sporting. Golfing is a highlight and so is the Grand-prix in neighbouring Abu Dhabi which does captivate many an age group to stay and have a memorable visit in the U.A.E. The children will never forget Dubai and the budget per day is surprisingly value for money that cannot be equalled in Europe and many other hot-spots. The list of things to do is un-rivalled for the size that Dubai is.


Top Experiences in Dubai


Burj Khalifa

Dubai runs on superlatives, from the glitziest, biggest malls on earth to the world's tallest building - the Burj Khalifa.

Dubai Creek
After the dizzying, ultra-modern heights of the Burj, there's nothing like the contrast of a simple abra ride on Dubai Creek.

Burj Al Arab

The Burj calls itself ‘the world’s only 7-star hotel’ and, whether or not you agree, it's certainly one of the most iconic buildings in Dubai.

Mall of the Emirates

Don't miss Ski Dubai, a huge ski slope situated in Mall of the Emirates at the Marina end of the city, close to Burj Al Arab.

Desert Safari

A desert safari offers the chance to get a flavour of the Bedouin existence from when the Dubai skyline was more sand than super-city.

Adventures

Skydiving
Sand islands built in the shape of the world map, the world’s tallest building, luxury hotels resembling huge chandeliers Dubai’s man-made skyline is well-known from amazing images. Jumpers take off from Dubai Marina and, tumble out of the plane above the Palm Jumeirah for an instant free-fall adrenaline rush.


Mountain biking
Devoted mountain bikers who imagine Dubai as soft dunes and dust need to wise up -- and plenty already have. Within the Hajar Mountains running east of Dubai through Ras al-Khaimah emirate and Oman, there’s a labyrinth of big-time trails to tackle.

Desert camping
The emirate’s desert is basically one giant campsite albeit a bit light on the washroom facilities.Dubai locals like nothing better than to throw their gear in a 4x4 and head for the nearest set of dunes. Within a couple of hours of leaving the city, ready for an evening of barbecuing beneath the star-rich desert night sky.


Reef and wreck-diving
The Red Sea grabs the headlines for Middle East diving, but the emirates offer good, lesser-known underwater experiences. Reefs are sparse along Dubai’s sandy coastline, but there are some good wreck dives a few miles offshore. Further up the coast, off the Omani territory of Musandam, has some of the region’s best drift diving.
