Destination Guide: Dubai


Dubai is, without a doubt, the crown of the UAE and the most famous holiday destination in the Middle East.

With beautiful beaches, majestic architecture, exclusive attractions, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences aplenty, Dubai is one of the hottest spots in the world and was named Tripadvisor's #1 Most Popular Destination in the World in 2022 and 2023.

Whether you’re looking to raise your adrenaline levels with a desert safari, enjoy a luxury holiday, or sample some of the finest culinary delights in the world, Dubai has everything you need.

A city of iconic skyscrapers where business thrives year-round alongside sun-seeking luxury travel experiences, Dubai has the second-most five-star hotels in the world and a profile as high as the view from the top of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
