Dubai Holidays

This ever-changing Emirate is like nowhere else on the planet and features eye-catching architecture, scintillating tax-free shopping, incredible attractions, beautiful beaches, glamorous bars and restaurants as well as ancient traditions and the silently shifting sands of the dramatic desert interior.

Over the last few decades Dubai has undergone huge growth and has evolved from a small Gulf trading centre to one of the world's most spectacular and futuristic urban destinations. While for many the beaches are the main attraction, there are so many other places of interest and activities to occupy you as well as a wide variety of places to stay. Whatever you choose to see or do and wherever you opt to lay your head, it's cheap and easy to get around, either by taxi or metro, ensuring you can see as much as possible, should you wish to do so.

Dubai Creek is the artery around which the city has developed and provides much of its character, with ancient dhows plying the busy waters, authentic architecture and the fascinating souks of Deira selling an array of spices, gold and textiles. Downtown Dubai has now eclipsed the Creek as the new business district and is where you'll find the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall and Dubai Fountain. Also here is Dubai Opera, which hosts a wide variety of events, including theatre, opera, ballet, orchestras, concerts, fashion shows, live entertainment and art exhibitions.

Established Jumeirah comprises a nine mile stretch of beaches, iconic hotels, shopping malls, the Marina Walk with an array of restaurants and Wild Wadi Waterpark. Man-made Palm Jumeirah island, billed as the 'eighth wonder of the world' is linked by causeway from Dubai Marina and extends into the Gulf in the shape of a palm tree. Jebel Ali lies to the southwest and has a stunning palm-lined private beach. Jebel Ali is also close to Dubai Parks™ and Resorts, the largest integrated theme park resort in the Middle East and Indian Subcontinent. The resort has three theme parks and a water park – motiongate™Dubai, Bollywood Parks™ Dubai, Legoland® Dubai and the Legoland® Water Park. It features over 100 rides and attractions along with a hotel and retail, dining and entertainment district.

In a city that boasts the world's largest shopping mall and an annual Shopping Festival, it's no surprise that Dubai is paradise for shopaholics! As well as the vast modern malls that dot the city, there's plenty of old-fashioned Arabian shopping to be found in the souks of Deira and Bur Dubai.

For those who like to be active there's plenty of outdoor, or indoor, sporting pursuits on offer, including all manner of watersports, a spectacular selection of golf courses, an indoor ski slope, ice rink, several water parks with fun for all the family and don't miss the opportunity to get out into the desert, even if for just a few hours. Dubai also boasts a top calendar of annual sporting events including leading tennis and golf tournaments, the world's richest horse race - the Dubai World Cup along with international cricket matches.

Visitors to Dubai will also discover a superb spread of top-quality restaurants and celebrity chefs with cuisine from all around the globe as well as contemporary bars, many with superlative views. Some of the best establishments are found within the numerous luxury hotels with most offering several options. The Madinat Jumeirah complex and souk has an array of restaurants and shops while the big malls also have lots of eateries, including fast food options.

So why not find out for yourself what all the fuss is about and let Premier Holidays create the perfect Dubai holiday for you…

Travel information

Dubai is approximately 7 hours from the UK. Recommended airlines flying non-stop to Dubai are British Airways, Emirates and Qantas.

Best time to go

Dubai enjoys virtually guaranteed year-round sunshine. Between December to February temperatures average in the mid-20sºC, rising up into the 30s from March to April and again from October to November. While the scorching temperatures between May-September may be too much for some (usually in excess of 40ºC), it’s one of the few destinations when it’s cheaper to visit during our school summer holidays, whether travelling with children or not.

Tourism Dirham charge

A Tourism charge is payable locally at all hotels and apartments in Dubai and is levied per room per night as follows:-

  • AED 20.00 (approx. £4.25) per room per night for stays in 5* hotels and deluxe hotel apartments.
  • AED 15.00 (approx. £3.20) per room per night for stays in 4* hotels and superior hotel apartments.
  • AED 10.00 (approx. £2.10) per room per night for stays in 3* and 2* hotels and standard hotel apartments.

Ramadan

During Ramadan, it is forbidden to eat, drink or smoke in public places (including hotels and those offering all inclusive) between sunrise and sunset; and no live entertainment is permitted. Hotels usually provide a private area where non-Muslims can eat during the day. Alcoholic drinks are not served in hotels (including those offering all inclusive) on dry days and other days stipulated by the government. Alcohol is available in Dubai hotels after sunset. Please ask for more details at time of booking.
