Dubai Holidays

A wide diversity of different experiences

Dubai offers a wide diversity of different experiences from stunning desert sands and vast unspoiled beaches to busy city areas and mountains to the east. Dubai is one of the seven emirates, together with Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah that make up the country of the United Arab Emirates.

Busy souks, hotels, apartments and villas

The central business district in Dubai is divided into two parts: Deira on the northern side and Bur Dubai to the south. Each has mosques and busy souks, hotels, apartments and villas. Dubai offers international restaurants and superb sports facilities including golf courses and internationally renowned horse racing courses.

Hotels in Dubai are among the best in the world

The year round sunshine and excellent soft sandy beaches along the Jumeriah coast are ideal for those wanting a relaxing beach holiday. One of Dubai’s holiday highlights is the Gold Souks, where a fortune in gold sits in the windows of rows of shops. Shopping here is a must and a Dubai holiday means you can take advantage of the duty free status of the city. Hotels here are among the best in the world, often architecturally stunning, they all share a high standard of quality.

Dubai weather

Dubai weather is characterised by low rainfall, high temperatures and lots of sunshine. However, the weather is sometimes difficult to predict with freak storms or winds and erratic rainfall. January and February are the coolest months, with the average maximum temperatures around 24C, dropping to a comfortable 14C at night. While winter weather sees rain, it is normally in short storms. Highs can still reach 30C and sea temperatures are still gorgeously warm. Winter averages eight hours of sunshine a day.
