As one of the top tourist destinations in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai has a lot to offer to any holiday-goer, and this is proven by the increasing number of travellers visiting each year. In 2019, over 12 million tourists visited the area. Dubai’s varying landscapes mean you can have several holidays in one as it is graced with hot weather, beautiful coastline, and immense deserts. Dubai is a city that has developed massively in recent years, yet it still holds on to many of its traditional values and culture. Visiting Dubai gives you the opportunity to explore both the most modern architecture and the oldest of Arabic traditions at the same time.

Dubai is home to some of the most impressive architecture in the world; visit and scale the world’s tallest building, the Burj Kahlifa. Browse one of the many luxury shopping malls, including The Dubai Mall. This is the second largest mall in the world and is host to a vast array of designer boutiques.

Alongside the modern architecture and shopping malls, comes the more traditional side of Dubai. Dubai is home to many Souks where you can wander through the market stalls and be immersed in the traditional shopping centres of Dubai. There are specialist Souk’s selling a variety of jewellery, spices, perfumes and textiles.

Aside from shopping and wandering, many tourists visit Dubai to explore the desert plains that are close by. Here you can have a unique experience on a desert safari, which are famous in Dubai. In the desert you can truly get a feel for the other side of Dubai, one of adventure, unique activities and entertainment. Ride a camel, go sandboarding, or go dune bashing either during the day or throughout the night, where you can travel the desert like a true Dubaian.

Dubai is a location to be visited all year round as it is typically a warm country with plenty of things to do both indoors and outdoors. Go on a trip bursting with culture, luxury, and modern architecture, there is an abundance of activities to keep you entertained.

Dubai’s official language is Arabic. However, the most common language spoken is English. Before you travel, remember to convert your currency to dirham.
