A Middle-East Adventure: Dubai & Abu Dhabi
Being one of the newest major cities in the World, Dubai’s population has grown seven times faster than New York. Once a tiny fishing village harvesting pearls from the sea, it is now the most sophisticated city on the Persian Gulf. It has something for everyone and we can help you find your perfect all inclusive holiday in Dubai.
With its unprecedented luxury, combination of old and new, and it’s soaring skyscrapers, Dubai is constantly rising – literally. It’s home to the world’s tallest building, the 830-metre high Burj Khalifa, along with the (self-rated) 7-star Burj Al Arab.
But what makes Dubai such a fantastic destination is that it also offers a host of modern (even futuristic) attractions. From skiing in an outdoor ski slope at the Mall of the Emirates, enjoying Arabian Nights souks to a new development coming soon that’s a $3 billion theme park called Dubailand.
Another reason why we love Dubai is the weather. The sun blazes down all year round with temperatures ranging from a comfortable 20 Celsius in January to a sweltering 40+ Celsius in August. With only 28 days of rain a year, if you are looking to get away from the indecisive UK weather, Dubai is definitely the place to be!
The costliest thing in Dubai, in our experience, would be eating. The restaurants tend to be quite expensive, delicious, but if you are on a budget we would suggest saving your money for the abundance of attractions on offer. We’ve picked out our favourite all-inclusive hotels in Dubai to give you a helping hand with an all inclusive holiday in Dubai…
