6 Reasons You Should Visit Dubai

Dubai is unique in so many ways and whether you’re looking for an active adventure holiday or total relaxation, you’re sure to find it here. Spotless beaches, classy brunches, designer shopping, desert safaris, skydiving…the list is endless.


Beach and City In One



Dubai’s coastline is developing continuously. What we love about this place is that you have the best of both worlds. You can chill around the beach or pool area drinking the best local cocktail, the Bull Frog, or go out and explore all the city has to offer. Planning an itinerary really helps when you’re on a city break as it means you can carve out some time to do all of the things you want to do!


Glamorous Hotels



Dubai is home to some of the most luxurious hotels the world has ever seen. Whether you choose to stay on the Palm or towards the Marina, there’s something for everyone and every budget. If you’re wanting something top-class and envy inducing, Five Palm Jumeirah Dubai, Armani Hotel Dubai and Rixos The Palm Dubai Hotel And Suites are great options. For something a bit more wallet friendly, we recommend Novotel Suites Mall of Emirates, Rove City Centre or Ibis Styles Dubai Jumeirah.


TALLEST Building in the World



Dubai is home to the tallest building in the world. The ‘Burj Khalifa’, which stands 830 metres high, it is the tallest construction to have ever been built. It’s open to tourists and we recommend booking tickets to the top before you travel as it usually works out cheaper and it tends to sell out quickly. Watching the sun set over the Arabian Gulf is a spectacular sight and peering down to the fountains on ground level as they dance, but from that dizzying height you might need a pair of binoculars!





Dubai is bursting with shops, malls and designer boutiques. As you can imagine it’s not exactly cheap, and is much more expensive than cities in the UK, but they do have several malls on multiple levels that sell everything from budget brands to designer labels. You’ll even find a Waitrose and Boots! The Dubai Mall is huge. It’s located next to the Burj Khalifa, and contains the world’s largest aquarium, hundreds of dining venues and stays open most nights until 11pm. If your wallet won’t quite stretch to the real thing, head over to Karmara market for where you can pick up pretty good replicas of the latest handbags, watches and wallets for a fraction of the price.


 The Palm Jumeirah



Consisting of two man-made islands constructed into the shape of a palm tree, this attraction is an impressive feat of engineering. It’s especially striking when viewed from above, making the palm the perfect location for a sky dive. If leaping from a plane isn’t your thing – which to be fair is most people – you can enjoy the view with a cocktail from the 57th floor Observatory Bar in the Marriott hotel. The Palm began construction in 2001 and is now home to several hotels including the Atlantis, Fairmount, Rixos and one of the latest editions, the stylish Kempinski.


Ski Dubai



Who would have thought you can ski in Dubai? Well, you can! The Mall of the Emirates, which is one of the largest shopping malls in the world has a huge 85 metre indoor ski slope. It’s a cool minus 4 degrees compared to the 35 degrees outside. If you don’t ski then you can try other great activities to take part in the snow park. Make sure you sample Ski Dubai when you’re here, there is no other place like it.
