Visit Dubai, Connecting You to the Rest of the World


Featured Destinations

Arabia Dubai

Conveniently located on most flight routes and with a number of things to do, Dubai is the ideal twin-centre destination. Two-thirds of the world’s population are located within an eight-hour flight to Dubai, so if you are looking to fly across the world, Dubai is a growing destination for stopover holidays and one of the busiest travel and connecting hubs.

The perfect holiday location whether you are looking to spend time in this fabulous city as the main part of your holiday or to stopover whilst on a trip across the world to other idyllic locations such as Bali, the Maldives, Mauritius, the list is endless. Turn your journey into a mini-holiday as you can soak up the culture, visit the beautiful beaches, see iconic landmarks, explore high-end shopping malls, witness record-breaking attractions and have a taste of the vibrant cuisine.

Endless Opportunities

Dubai makes an instant and lasting impression on everyone who visits, with world-class shopping malls, opulent hotels, and gourmet restaurants, all on a truly grand scale. The city combines striking skyscrapers, beautiful beaches, and epic desert vistas. Home to the world’s tallest building, shopping malls the size of towns, waterparks with half-million-gallon wave pools and rollercoasters hitting speeds of 60km per hour, Dubai really does have something for everyone!

All year-round glorious sunshine, warm inviting Arabian Gulf waters and a majestic desert tell only one side of the story, as beyond the hotels and resorts, there are endless opportunities to experience the diversity of Dubai, a place like no other. Enjoy 4-wheel drives or camel riding in the desert, moonlit cruises along the Creek, or skiing and tobogganing at Ski Dubai. And for culture buffs, the Museum of the Future is a great way to spend an afternoon, while the malls offer hours of retail therapy.

Family Friendly

Dubai really is the ideal family friendly destination, home to world-famous theme parks and slide-filled attractions plus luxury hotels with first-rate child-friendly facilities. Explore Dubai from the stunning beaches, or the colourful creations of LEGOLAND® Dubai - including adrenalin filled rides and a waterpark, even the shopping centres focus on family-friendly activities, such as Dubai Mall where you will find the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo.

Not only is Dubai a fantastic place for a family holiday on its own, but it is also the ideal family twin-centre destination, offering the ideal stopover before continuing to locations further afield to break up the journey if you are looking to fly across the world with the family.

New Adventures

Every day brings a new adventure - whether you choose to relax by the hotel pool, go on a desert safari, or take a camel ride across the beach. For a trip the family will never forget, try sailing across the Creek in a traditional wooden boat called an abra, before sampling exotic spices and foraging for treasures in the souks.

Extravagant Experiences

Renowned for its extravagance and the sheer scale of its many attractions, take the opportunity to shop until you drop, with an array of designer stores and smaller boutiques. Enjoy the fabulous restaurants serving delicious food, including innovative dishes from around the world. Plus there is plenty on offer for those looking for an adrenalin rush, from dune driving, motorised water sports – and those amazing theme parks, suitable for all ages.

This reputation, alongside gorgeous all-year round sunshine, has made Dubai into one of the world’s most desirable holiday destinations, whether as the main part of your holiday, or to connect you to other worldwide locations.
