The gleaming desert city of Dubai, with its towering skyscrapers, ostentatious hotels, world-class restaurants colossal shopping malls, bars and clubs is simply in a league of its own when it comes to delivering the full VIP experience. Regardless of how impressive your own line of credit it is, you can be sure you will feel like an international jet-setter as you swim in the azure warm waters off Jumeirah Beach and gaze upon the Dubai's awe-inspiring skyline.
Located on the south-east coast of the Persian Gulf, Dubai has a sub-tropical, arid climate which ensures the region is sunny almost all year round. In general, the most pleasant time to take Dubai holidays is between mid October and mid April as this is when the weather is at its most moderate. Between the middle of April and mid October it is a different prospect entirely, with temperatures regularly exceeding 100°F and humidity levels topping out at around 95 per cent. Flights from the UK are available all year round and take less than seven hours.
Needless to say, the quality and availability of the city’s impeccable beaches, restaurants, bars and (tax free) shopping malls are likely to be more than enough to keep the visitor thoroughly entertained. However with a Dubai Holiday enough is never enough so why not make use of the city’s indoor ski centre; visit the world’s largest indoor theme park (Ferrari World); take a trip up the world’s tallest building (the Burj Khalifa); or play a round on one of the 28 - yes; 28 - golf courses to break up the days of decadence. Or, if lthe idea of seeing Dubai without its face-pack on appeals, stroll around the streets of the Bastakia, Karama or Satwa neighbourhoods, or visit the Heritage Village to experience some of the genuine friendliness and hospitality of local Emiratis.
