Ever-changing Dubai is the best known of the seven sheikhdoms, which make up the United Arab Emirates, and is like nowhere else on the planet. Featuring eye-catching architecture, scintillating shopping, incredible attractions, beautiful beaches, glamorous bars and restaurants along with a sophisticated atmosphere.

Dubaiís beaches are stunning and with year-round sunshine virtually guaranteed, itís perfect for sun-worshippers. For those who like to be active, there are plenty of outdoor, or indoor, sporting pursuits, including all manner of watersports, spectacular golf courses, an indoor ski slope and several water parks.

Dubai Creek provides much of the cityís character, with ancient dhows plying the busy waters and the fascinating souks of Deira selling an array of spices, gold and textiles. Downtown Dubai is where the Burj Khalifa soars skyward and where paradise awaits shopaholics in the Dubai Mall. However, Dubai is essentially about the desert and any visit must include a trip out of the city into the shifting dunes.


Housing one of the oldest civilisations on the Arabian Peninsula, Oman clings determinedly to its past. Along with friendly people, amazing scenery untouched by tourism, dramatic contrasts in architecture and peeks into ancient cultures, this land offers a unique and exotic holiday.

Itís a country of vivid landscapes with rugged mountains, deep water fjords, rich green valleys and spectacular desert terrains. Oman also has some of the most stunning and secluded beaches the Arabian Peninsula has to offer as well as some truly unforgettable snorkelling and diving spots rich with coral and marine life, including turtles.

Hinged between mountains and sea, the sprawling capital Muscat boasts an alluring selection of hotels, wonderful beaches and numerous fine restaurants and bars. In the south eastern corner of Oman is Salalah, once the heart of the frankincense trade, it welcomes visitors with pristine beaches and a stunning natural backdrop of mountains, springs and waterfalls.
