Holidays to Dubai
Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, is one of the fastest growing holiday destinations in the world. The very name is synonymous with luxury and indulgence – the 7 star Burj al Arab, on Jumeirah Beach, is the most expensive hotel in the world – but that aside, Dubai holidays are surprisingly affordable, with a huge number of tourist attractions. We at Coop Travel offer bargain holidays to Dubai that will let you live like a king – on a pauper’s budget.
A Dubai holiday offers one of the most spectacular waterfronts in the world. For centuries an important trading post, its modern history dates from the 18th century. Although many of its old buildings have disappeared under modern developments, Dubai holidays offer a glimpse of traditional Arabian life in the charming old town area, at the marine end of Dubai creek north of the Palm Islands. Here, you’ll discover covered Souks, wooden water taxis and boat trips to Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary. A must for anyone booking bargain holidays to Dubai is a visit to the magnificent Jumeirah Mosque; one of several in the city but the only one open to non-Muslims. Dubai museum is also worth a visit, placing the city into perspective.
For many people, late deals in Dubai mean the white sands and warm turquoise waters of Jumeirah Beach. Overlooked by the billowing sail of the Burj al Arab, this 10 mile stretch of the Arabian Gulf offers safe swimming, a range of watersports and a variety of upmarket restaurants, bars and hotels. Dubai holidays are a popular choice with families, who can enjoy a range of activities and attractions including a zoo, water park and indoor ski resort. Jeep and camel safaris into the desert are also popular.
Being so close to the desert, the one possible drawback of booking last minute Dubai holidays is the climate, which can reach a staggering 45 degrees Celsius in the summer months. We at Coop Travel recommend families research the expected weather during their Dubai package holidays to ensure it won’t be too hot for their children.
