Dubai is more than a spectacular collision of Eastern culture and the West. It’s a fascinating region where desert tradition meets world-leading modernism. The result is a not-to-be-missed, sensory sensation.
What will be your fondest memory of your holiday to Dubai? Will you always remember standing half a mile in the air, on Burj Khalifa’s soaring observation platform, with the centre of Dubai spread out beneath you?
Or will the desert wrap you in its beguiling folds and seize your imagination?
You may find yourself in amidst robed Bedouins; sleeping under the stars in Sheik-style tents; enjoying falconry, archery and riding thoroughbred horses. You could stay in a multi award-winning, desert resort – famed for its eco-tourism credentials – and experience desert drives and sand boarding.
Or you could enter a world of dazzling superlatives. Dubai is home to the world’s tallest building, the planet’s largest fountain - complete with son et lumière - and the largest-ever shopping mall. Then there’s Atlantis with Aqua, its 42 acre waterpark featuring water-coasters, rivers, rapids and Leap of Faith catapult rides.
