Dubai

Overview

  • Flight Time: 7 Hours
  • Time Zone: UTC +4:00
  • Best Time to Travel: November - May

Dubai is an incredible success story - From its humble beginnings as a small trading post to a modern day metropolis in just a few decades. The city has been built for tourism and everything it does is to promote its own economy and its global appeal as a fantastic holiday destination.

Dubai is both a dynamic international business centre and a laid-back tourist escape; a city where the sophistication of the 21st century walks hand in hand with the simplicity of a bygone era. But these contrasts give its unique flavour and personality; a cosmopolitan society with an international lifestyle, yet with a culture deeply rooted in the Islamic traditions of Arabia.

With its state-of-the-art infrastructure and something new happening everyday, your stay will be a memorable mix and match of all the things you have always wanted to do. From the wonderful shopping on offer in the modern malls and traditional souks, long stretches of wonderful beaches and spectacular sand dunes, a Dubai holiday has much to offer.

The city now boasts the tallest building in the world, a ski dome, some of the best shopping anywhere in the world and the first 6* hotel. The city is developing at a rapid pace and offers something for everyone.
