Miles of stunning coastline, the beautiful Arabian Desert, and year-round sunshine make Dubai the destination. While you’re there, be sure to shop ‘til you drop in the world’s largest shopping mall, barter in the some of city’s colorful local markets, and visit the famous man-made Palm Islands.
Dubai has grown far beyond its humble roots as a pearl divers town. Now shaped by a stunning cityscape, world-class shopping experiences, as well as scenic beaches, Dubai is a gem you have to see to believe.
With over 1200 shops, Dubai Mall is the world’s largest mall. Carrying designer brands from across the globe, it’s the place to splash some cash during your holiday to Dubai. Alternatively, leave the mainstream malls behind and seek out the souks. Barter for a bargain in these historic markets, well known for their authentic spices and gold.
When you’re worn out from shopping, Dubai has a wide range of beaches to relax on. Pristine sands and the clear blue ocean stretch out before you at the Jumeirah beach park. You can unwind on a sun bed, take a swim in the warm ocean or even play beach volleyball. Marina Beach is worth a visit for its scenic beauty and excellent facilities and shops.
There’s plenty of opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy the sunshine on your cheap holiday to Dubai. Head to Al Safa Park’s tennis courts or hold on tight as you speed around the gulf on a banana boat ride. Tee off at one of the best golf courses in the Middle East at the Emirates Golf Club or find adventure on a desert safari.
Dubai draws in food enthusiasts from around the world. Head to Al Dhiyafah Road and enjoy the variety of food on offer, such as Ravi Restaurant specialising in Pakistani dishes, or Pars Iranian Kitchen for a taste of Iran. Dubai brings in world-class talent from every culinary tradition. Most hotels in Dubai have high-class restaurants, but if you like to dine outdoors Pierchic offers a delectable seafood menu to enjoy while overlooking the gulf.
Home to record-breaking contemporary architecture, Dubai embraces the “bigger is better” philosophy. The Burj Khalifa is a stunning spire with the honour of being the world’s tallest building. While, The Dubai Fountain is the world’s largest choreographed fountain, with spectacular water shows set to popular music, including hits such as Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’.
