Dubai Luxury Holidays
Dubai is the second largest and most populated of the United Arab Emirates' seven emirates, an opulent and exciting year-round getaway destination for travellers. It's one of the fastest growing cities on the planet, the result of the ruling sheikh's determination to make Dubai one of the world's essential destinations in the twenty-first century.
For many people Dubai is what the United Arab Emirates is all about - a heady hub of international glamour, extravagant hotels, wealthy sheikhs, themed shopping centres such as the Ibn Battatuh Mall and grand construction projects that never fail to amaze.
In this tax-free sand, sun and sea playground the concepts of luxury and possibility are constantly being raised and exceeded. At 830 metres tall, the needle-like Burj Khalifa is the world's tallest manmade structure. The sail-shaped Burj Al Arab hotel is another impressive local landmark. Others are constantly spring up. Offshore, the Palm Jumeirah and The World - reclaimed land shaped to resemble a giant palm tree and a map of the earth - are reflective of Dubai's sky-high aspirations.

Dubai City straddles Dubai Creek, around which Dubai first developed as a small fishing village, before its recent and sudden growth. Arabic dhows jostle for space on the water, while on the eastern bank of the Creek is the district of Deira, the most traditional part of the city, also known as ‘Ol…
This artificial archipelago of reclaimed land, known as Palm Jumeirah, is one of Dubai's many groundbreaking construction projects, located off Jumeirah Beach and close to Dubai Marina. It's one of Dubai's main holiday destinations.
