Discover Dubai

Big, bold and decidedly glitzy, there’s no other city in the world quite like Dubai. A place where visionaries and entrepreneurs accomplish their greatest goals, Dubai has, in less than 100 years, developed from a small port town to a major capital of tourism, infrastructure and luxury. Skyscrapers grow up from the sand, manmade islands float on the ocean and the coastline shimmers with lavish luxury hotels. Catch your breath and dive beneath the city’s sparkling surface to discover another world of Arabian culture, hospitality and adventure.


Head to the City of Gold

With a history stretching back thousands of years, Dubai’s rapid transformation into a buzzing metropolis makes it a fascinating place to visit. With a diverse population, a unique blend of old and new, and plenty of iconic landmarks, Dubai has become a hotspot for shopping, entertainment, and international events. And a trip here isn’t complete without a visit to the world’s tallest building - the Burj Khalifa.

Add to your souvenir collection

Everything’s bigger in Dubai, including the famous Mall (the largest in the world!), but there’s so much more to discover than just designer delights. Head to the Souks of Old Dubai, and discover an exciting range of goods, from fragrances to spices and fine silks - the perfect place to pick up something unique. Or, check out the Ripe Food & Craft Market, held every Saturday, to browse fresh produce and unique homeware.

Dubai cuisine

Experience a rich culture

Revel in the rich history of this exciting Emirate when you visit Old Dubai; the historical heart of the city lines Dubai Creek, and is full of busy souks, fascinating museums and cultural attractions. You can even take to the seas in a traditional ‘dhow’ boat, sailing back in time to discover the city’s history. For a more contemporary experience, head to Al Quoz neighbourhood to be fascinated by modern art in industrial spaces.

Dubai travel

Venture outside the city

The desertscape surrounding Dubai is an adventure playground, with ample opportunity to test your limits. From hot air balloon rides to seaplanes, alternative sightseeing tours offer a fresh perspective of the city. Or, embark on a thrilling desert safari, typically involving activities like dune bashing, quad biking and, camel riding, followed by traditional entertainment and a barbecue dinner under the starry sky.
