The magnificent city where dreams come true, Dubai offers a cosmopolitan cityscape with pristine beaches. Proud to be one of the seven kingdoms of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Dubai is a beacon of beauty against a backdrop of desert dunes, rivalling London, Paris and New York for luxury, culture and entertainment. Although an extravagant destination, a trip to Dubai doesn''t need to cost the earth with plenty of affordable, family-friendly activities for everyone to enjoy!
The warm waters of the Arabian Gulf meet Dubai''s soft white sands along the beautiful coastline.Stunning sands such as Jumeirah and Kite Beach make the nearby urban centres seem like a distant memory, whether you want to relax, try out some water sports or simply walk along the breath-taking shores. If you''re a sucker for a dazzling evening view, you can watch the soothing sunset on Umm Suqeim Beach or head over to Marina Beach to see the sparkling surrounding skyline.
With nightclubs that attract internationally successful DJs and musicians, Dubai more than earns its reputation as an upmarket party destination. Here, the working week finishes on Thursday, making this and Friday the hottest nights to go out.
