Be bowled over by incredible sights on your Dubai holiday

Thu, Oct 10, 2019

Picture the world’s tallest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa, soaring into the sky, or the sail shaped Burj Al Arab, set against gleaming Jumeirah Beach. Explore the man-made Palm Islands, stretching theatrically into the Persian Gulf, or the glitzy shopping malls, dripping with luxury. Admire shimmering jewels in the Gold Souk, breathe the smell of cinnamon in the Spice Souk, or haggle for silks in the Textile Souk, fitting in an abra ride across Dubai Creek.

Dubai is a blast for families, with enough theme parks to keep the kids enthralled for weeks. Throw snowballs at Ski Dubai, trek the rainforest at the Green Planet, or brush up on bhangra at Bollywood Parks, themed on Indian blockbusters. Escape the city in the desert sands, to watch falcons swooping or to ride a buggy across the dunes. Dubai has something for everyone.
