Holidays to Dubai
Breathtaking hotels and malls - shoppers paradise
Dubai once a small fishing town is now competing in every sense with the top world cities booming with tourists. Dubai is rapidly becoming a hugely popular tourist destination with it’s pristine, largest and out of this world malls – spotless beaches and extravagant hotels. Holidays to Dubai can be spent lazing on the white powdered sandy beaches and this is truly a shopper’s paradise - shopping at the famous gold souks. The futuristic architecture at breathtaking heights, a seven star hotel only one of its kind in the world, the Burj al Arab, a ski slope and exquisite cuisine it has to be Dubai!
If a holiday to Dubai is what you are looking for, then Holiday Supermarket can offer just what you need at an affordable price. Holiday deals to Dubai have become increasingly popular in recent years as this city has changed dramatically from the sibling of Abu Dhabi to a world tourism leader.
In times gone by, there may have been little to see in the city of Dubai but now holidays in Dubai have changed as the city continues to build and forge new attractions, thus making Dubai a holiday of a lifetime. Attractions range from the fun-filled Wild Wadi theme park, an Arabian-themed water park ideal for family holidays, to the Mall of the Emirates, described as ‘the world’s first shopping resort’ with 7,000 parking spaces. In the Mall of the Emirates, you can find the likes of Harvey Nichols, Marc Jacobs and even an indoor ski slope, Ski Dubai. For those seeking cheap holidays to Dubai, there is little in the usual way of sightseeing although a few impressive historical pockets can be found such as Bastakia, a painstakingly preserved and pedestrianised area where the alley houses are lined with wind towers, the air conditioning of the pre-electricity world. You could take a traditional wooden abra boat for a ride along the water and admire the shores.
Dubai’s obsession in changing to a world leader in tourism has resulted in a shoreline of waterfront hotels, glistening pools and tax-free shopping malls, making holidays to Dubai even cheaper. Planned attractions include an underwater city called Hydropolis, the tallest tower in the entire world, the Burj Dubai, and the world’s largest indoor ski slope is not something most would expect from holidays to Dubai. Holidays in Dubai would be incomplete for nature lovers without a visit to the five acre tropical forest where a number of exotic birds can be viewed.
Whilst in Dubai, you might consider taking a desert tour – a half or full day safari to take a traditional Arabic campsite meal whilst watching Arabian festivities. Alternatively, you could relax by the deep gorges of Hatta Pools for a picnic and to swim by the waterfalls.
Dubai holidays do not need to be all tourism and shopping, as Dubai also offers a more cultural side. Several new and impressive theatres and performance venues have sprung up to cater to the newfound cultural aspect. Jumeirah Mosque is the only mosque open to non-Muslims and can be found on Jumeirah Beach Road.
