Dubai has often been regarded as an exotic holiday destination strictly for the affluent, however now with great deals on flights, hotels and packages, Dubai is becoming an affordable destination for the average UK traveller and is steadily increasing popularity.
Holidays to Dubai are fast becoming available at similar prices to holidays in New York or Las Vegas Holidays, with early summer flights available for less than £300 with ABTA bonded flight and hotel packages from tour operator LetsGo2.com around £1,000.
Dubai is a truly amazing holiday destination, with sight seeing, shopping, fine restaurants and luxurious hotels all in an exotic location with miles of white sandy beaches and glorious sunshine.
Located South of the Persian Gulf on the Arabian Peninsula, Dubai has the largest population in the Emirates and its’ multi-billion dollar economy was built on profitable foundations of the traditional oil industry. Today oil represents a far less significant proportion of Dubai’s revenue with tourism, property and finance being the modern revenue streams.
Dubai has gained a reputation for building some of the largest and most iconic and awe-inspiring structures in the World. These are some of the resort’s main tourist attractions and ensure going on holiday in Dubai is a vacation to remember.
The incredible Burj Khalifa, which officially opened on 4 th January 2010 stands at 828 metres tall and is the tallest man-made building in the World. The skyscraper is soon to be home to the first Giorgio Armani hotel, as well as accommodating restaurants, residential and commercial floor space, and will be a big attraction for all Dubai holidays.
Designer shopping is a huge part of the Dubai experience. It is well known for it’s breath-taking array of designer brands and boutiques frequented by many of the World’s rich and famous as well as the famous “Dubai Shopping Festival”. In the grounds of the Burj Khalifa sits the Dubai Mall, which is renowned as the largest shopping mall in the World covering a massive twelve million square feet and home to over 1,200 shops with an adjoining five star hotel.
It’s also worth remembering that Dubai has a strong culture of haggling, and not just in the markets or Souks, but sometimes even in high street and department stores, helping make Dubai holidays even more unique when compared with more traditional city breaks like holidays in New York or Las Vegas Holidays.
There are plenty of lovely white sandy beaches and brilliant sunshine to enjoy when on holiday in Dubai. Average high temperatures are around the 25-30 degree mark even in the winter months, with summer temperatures soaring to 40 degrees which rivals even the weather for Thailand Holidays.
From the coastline you can see The Burj Al Arab hotel which is shaped like a giant boat sail and stands at 321 metres tall. The Burj Al Arab was built on reclaimed land offshore and this stunning building is also one of the most expensive hotels in the World boasting numerous restaurants including the famous Al Mahara, with its’ impressive entrance via a life-like submarine voyage and huge seawater aquarium.
Also off the coastline there are more spectacular constructions, The Palm Jumeirah is a huge set of manmade islands built in the shape of a massive palm tree which are home to Hotels including Atlantis The Palm, beaches, restaurants, apartments and retail outlets too.
Then there is “The World” a futuristic similar land reclamation project, which aims to recreate all the countries of the World spread over 300 islands, eventually to be sold as private islands for investors for leisure, residential and tourism development. These amazing constructions can be seen from outer- space and ambitious land reclamation projects such as these have never been attempted anywhere in the World before.
