Dubai holidays are sunny day holidays
Where the view from the beach is an architectural marvel and a sparkling sea
Dubai, the remarkable capital of the UAE, glitters with marvels. Its palaces of pleasure come in many forms. In the last decade alone the wealth of the city has built the tallest building in the world, the biggest shopping centre and even created a hipster quarter.
A playground built from a sandpit, there are thousands of things to do. Take a tour of the crazy theme parks – themed around everything from Lego to Smurfs – with the family before retreating to a beachfront hotel on the Palm Jumeriah. If you booked flights to Dubai to be seduced by the desert, venture out to trace Bedouin culture under the vast skies. Enjoy Dubai’s lushness, too. You’ll be overwhelmed by the literal walls of flowers in the world’s largest flower garden and enjoy brunch buffets spilling over with delicacies. When you visit heritage centres, the Jumeriah Mosque and the city’s modern art galleries, you’ll see that this desert is far from a cultural vacuum.
The manmade island of Palm Jumeirah is a great place to visit, and ideal for luxury holidays. The luxury villas on the palm tree-shaped island’s ‘fronds’ exude exclusivity and offer captivating panoramas of Dubai’s glittering skyline. The islands also play host to a number of prestigious and opulent hotels, including the Fairmont The Palm, with private beaches and extravagant décor. Discover the aquarium and Aquaventure Water Park amid the island’s crowning glory – the breathtaking Atlantis The Palm, a palatial resort often voted the best hotel in the Middle East.
