With glittering skyscrapers, world class shopping and incredible beaches, Dubai really is a diamond in the desert.

Dubai is an incredible city which effortlessly combines traditional Middle Eastern charm with seven-star luxury.

Discover a world of fine-dining, designer shopping, atmospheric markets, soaring skyscrapers and bright blue skies. Dubai offers outstanding beaches, lined with palm trees and world-class hotels and resorts, such as the Atlantis which is built on the iconic Palm Jumeirah, an artificial island in the shape of a palm tree.

Head to Downtown Dubai where you will find the colossal Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world and the Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destination.

Experience the spectacular water displays at the Dubai Fountain or walk around the glittering Gold Souk where you’ll not only find gold, but diamond-encrusted ornaments, stings of pearls, platinum and silver.

Wander around the spice markets infused with exotic aromas, take a dhow boat cruise along the Dubai Creek, explore the landscape on a hot air balloon adventure, or learn about Dubai’s culture and history at the Dubai Museum at the Al Fahidi Fort.

Visit the Burj Al Arab hotel, designed to look like the sail of a ship, for an ultra stylish brunch or zoom across the massive sand dunes in a 4x4 on a desert safari before heading to a traditional Arab encampment for dinner, surrounded by belly dancers, fire eaters and jugglers.

Dubai Parks and Resorts offers a world of family fun. The Middle East’s largest integrated theme park comprises Motiongate™ Dubai, Legoland® Dubai, Bollywood Parks™ Dubai, Legoland® Water Park and a centrally located retail, dining and entertainment area called Riverland ™ Dubai.

Don’t worry if you get tired with all of the sightseeing and activities, Dubai offers a number of truly outstanding beaches, all with superb facilities, where you can take some time to relax and enjoy the glorious sunshine.

If it’s a great night out you're looking for, Dubai will not disappoint. The city is packed full of restaurants offering local cuisine and dishes from around the world.
