Some places need to be seen to be believed, and Dubai is one of them. Rising out of the desert, this shining metropolis makes a stunning first impression – and its great beaches and year-round sun keep people coming back. Everything here feels larger than life, from the sprawling shopping malls and endless desert sands to the world’s tallest building.

Experience all Dubai has to offer by flying with British Airways. Enjoy the views from the Burj Khalifa’s lounges, restaurants and viewing platform. If you prefer to keep your feet on solid ground, the famous Dubai Fountain puts on a water and light show every 30 minutes each evening. But not everything here is ultra-modern. The Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood offers a snapshot of Dubai before the skyscrapers and luxury cars. Here you can take guided tours of local mosques, visit the Dubai museum, and explore the Textile Souq, one of the area’s oldest markets. See all of this and more by booking your holiday to Dubai today.
