Dubai’s ultramodern architecture, famous for its skyscrapers, and abundance of record-breaking attractions mixed with sandy beaches and Mediterranean climate are just some of the few reasons for its popularity with tourists. As the most populous city in the UAE, boasting its own artificial island and vast collection of luxury destinations, Dubai is definitely worth a visit!

When To Go

The ideal time to visit would be during the winter (December – February), to experience the best of Dubai’s Mediterranean climate.

Dubai is also a favorite location for many travelers New Year due to its extravagant firework displays.

If you don’t mind the sometimes intense heat, the summer sees hotel rates at their lowest.

Where To Go

Bur Dubai, the oldest part of the city, acts as a great insight into the traditional roots of the metropolitan city with its abundance of Arabian heritage in the beautiful Iranian quarter of Bastakiya.

Downtown Dubai is a must-see with its record-breaking attractions including the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Mall and the Dubai Fountain.

The Dubai Marina is perfect for coastline views of the spectacular Dubai skyline and its skyscrapers, as well as the Atlantis resort.

Don’t forget to travel the Shiekh Zayed Road and experience a Dubai-style Desert Safari!
