Located on the Persian Gulf is the gem of Dubai. Known for luxury shopping and ultramodern architecture, Dubai, being 2/3 of the way is a perfect stopover point for long haul flights to UK and Europe.
One of the first things to do is visit the stunning Burj Khalifa - the tallest building in the world. A visit to the top offers a jaw dropping view over the city - which resembles a scene from a sci-fi movie.
The shopping is unbelievable. The Dubai Mall located at the base of the Burj Khalifa has 1200 shops, ranging from affordable to very high end. There is a 2 storey aquarium in the middle of the shopping centre where you can cage dive with sharks! For a more authentic Arabian shopping experience head to the souks (market place) in Old Town, where you will find loads of local treasures.
A speed boat tour from the Dubai Marina is a fabulous and fun way to view the infamous Atlantis Resort, located on the man-made Palm Islands. Once in the open sea you may be sprayed a little but it adds to the fun!
As a complete contrast to the city, a desert dune safari and dinner is a must. The evening begins with a ‘4WD bash‘ over sand dunes, sunset photo opportunity, dinner at a Bedouin Camp with belly dancers and camel rides.
