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…

Mahe may be the largest and most densely populated island in The Seychelles, but at only 17 miles long and 5 miles wide it is delightfully compact and easily explorable. The joy of Mahe is the variety it offers: glorious coastal scenery ranging from wild granite cliffs to tranquil palm-fringed bays, while inland are high hills and remote rainforest and throughout the island are small towns and a unique Creole culture.
There are over 60 wonderful beaches and coves fringing the island, ranging from sweeping bays of white sand to hidden corners to find for your own Robinson Crusoe experience.
On the stunningly beautiful northwest coast is popular Beau Vallon, which may be more developed than other areas but is still low key with a gorgeous beach spread across a huge bay along with calm, gentle waters. Beau Vallon also has a good range of restaurants so you aren't limited to those in your hotel, however good they may be! It's also a good base for exploring Victoria and for access to the harbour for boats to Praslin and La Digue.
On the west coast is Port Launay Marine National Park, which has a horseshoe-shaped beach of white sands and calm, relatively deep waters forming a natural harbour. As a protected marine reserve the snorkelling is fantastic here and with a glorious backdrop of jungle clad mountains and high granite hills covered in forest, you'll feel surrounded by nature.
For beach hopping and seclusion it's hard to beat the south of the island. Here you'll find small settlements interspersed with forest and winding coastal roads leading to spectacular beaches, such as Anse Forbans, a huge bay naturally divided into three smaller beaches by boulders. The waters are shallow and calm with a natural lagoon formed by a reef some way off the shore. Other beaches close by include Anse Royal, Soleil, Intendance and Takamaka.
Mahe's tiny capital, Victoria, is a bustling centre whose streets are lined with endemic palms and a mix of Creole-style houses, Indian shops and British relics. There's a vibrant market, manicured botanical gardens and modern shopping plazas.
