Dubai Holidays

Luxury holidays to Dubai cast a magic spell with the city's stunning trappings that enthral one to the hilt. While Jumeirah Beach enamours sun-worshippers seeking a perfect beach escape, Dubai Creek offers a rendezvous with the city's old world charm from aboard the lavish dhows. The spectacular World and the Palm Islands, the imposing Grand and Jumeirah Mosques, the Dubai Museum in the Al Fahidi Fort, and Children's City are among some of the must see sights on holidays to Dubai. The restored Bastakiya district featuring the quaint local houses, art galleries, cafes, Saturday street market and much more lets one explore . . .

Climate and Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Dubai is from November to March. Weather-wise, Dubai really only experiences two seasons: hot and hotter. During the winter months, the city sees blue skies and primo beach weather. However, this is also peak tourist season, so expect plenty of company on Jumeirah Beach.

Things To Do in Dubai

Dubai is a city that offers many attractions and sites for all types of travellers. Here you can go up the world’s tallest tower or head for a cultural night out at the theatre, swim with dolphins, explore heritage sites, go on a safari out into the sand dunes or even try out indoor skiing. The list is endless, and you will certainly enjoy plenty of things to do and see.

Skydive Dubai

If you have ever thought about trying out skydiving, Dubai might be a place well-equipped to become the site for this adventure of a lifetime. With some of the most magnificent views in the world, Dubai is an amazing sight to behold on your way down.

The Dubai Fountains

Located next to one of the highest buildings in the world, the Dubai Fountain puts up a fantastic water and light show that is largest of its kind. It should not be missed while visiting Dubai. Afternoon (13.00-13.30, Fridays 13.30-14.00) and evening shows (18.00-23.00, every half hour) are held daily.

Burj Khalifa

At 829.8 meters high, the magnificent Burj Khalifa is a Dubai development that has held the title of world's tallest building for nearly a decade. Visitors are welcome to take the world's fastest elevator to reach the panoramic observation deck at the tower's top.

Ski Dubai

Ski Dubai is located inside Dubai Mall of the Emirates and is the world’s third largest indoor ski slope. In addition, it is also the first one to open in the Middle East. Here you will find a chair lift, a t-bar, a café and 6,000 tons of snow. You can even experience close encounters with snow penguins.

Desert Safari

A Dubai must-do is a four-wheel driving excursion out into the sand dunes. Stops that let you discover some of the wildlife are made along the way. More likely, the drivers will race each other up and down seemingly impossible slopes. The day’s excitement ends with a barbecue under the stars. Dubai Evening Safari

The Tower Of Arabs (Burj Al Arab)

If you are not staying at this hotel, there is only one way to get in: book a breakfast, brunch, afternoon tea, lunch or dinner at the restaurants inside the hotel. These won't come cheap (this is a "seven-star" hotel), but it will definitely be worth the money. Burj Al-Arab has grown to become a signature landmark of Dubai.

Shop the Local Way in Souks

Dubai’s heritage and its culture are intangible but a few precious traces of both can be packed and pocketed at the city’s souks. While huge bargains can be scored on spices, perfumes, traditional clothing as well as gold; the chance to soak in the vibrant atmosphere at these souks is priceless.

  • Spice Souk
  • Deira Covered Souk
  • Naif Souk
  • Gold Souk
  • Perfume Souk

WHERE CURRENCY IS KING

Spice Souk is a popular address in the Old City of Dubai, located at a walking distance from the Deira Old Souk Abra Station (a boat station). A walk amidst the slender passageways of the Spice Souk reveals photogenic heaps of fragrant spices, including local favourites such as cumin, cardamom, tahini, za'atarm, saffron, chillies, turmeric, pepper, sunflower extracts, mace and nutmeg. Expectedly, the souk remains bustling with the locals and tourists trying to cut best bargains.

GET READY FOR BARGAINS GALORE

Don’t go looking for a covered marketplace constrained to a narrow lane as Deira Covered Souk rather sprawls over a few blocks around Naif Road, Al Soor St, 18th St and Al Sabkha Road. You can pick textiles, clothing as well general household knick-knacks at great bargains here but the main allure of this souk lies in enjoying leisurely walks, soaking in the surrounding hustle and bustle.

GRAB YOURSELF A BARGAIN ABAYA

Your best bet for souvenir shopping across a range of products must be placed on the Naif Souk. A bustling bazaar featuring over 100 stalls, Naif Souk is located between the Dubai Creek and the old Gold Souk. You will find terrific bargains on leather goods, textiles, electronics, clothing items such as pashminas, colourful kaftans and abayas (traditional cloaks) as well as sandals, kids’ toys and sparkly handbags. Services like henna application and hair extensions make it popular among women.

AVOID STREET VENDORS

The most popular souk in Dubai, the Gold Souk is a shining haven for buying gold, silver and other precious gemstones. Prepare your senses to be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of ready-to-wear as well as customisable gold and silver necklaces on display, some of them as long as a small-sized human. Rings, bracelets, ear-rings and brooches from here will make for excellent souvenirs. For authenticity, ensure you buy from the shops and not the street vendors. Is bargaining possible? Of course; more if you pay in cash!

PICK A NEW SIGNATURE SCENT

Let the heady scents emanating from the Perfume Souk guide you to Sikkat al Khali Road, just east of the Gold Souk. While you can’t go wrong with traditional Oud and Bakhoor fragrances, it is entirely possible to get your own customised perfume basis your skin type and personality. You can buy a bottle or opt for the scents in the form of stick, powder, crystal, rock or wood element.
