United Arab Emirates Holidays

Camels in the desert in the United Arab Emirates

From the ostentatious Dubai to the traditional United Arab Emirates and the exotic Oman, amongst others, the United Arab Emirates is a region of contrasts. While its main hubs of Dubai and Abu Dhabi mainly act as a popular stopover destination, stay a little while longer and you’ll enjoy a holiday of surreal attractions, age-old traditions, desert beauty and guaranteed sun. Luxury is also a word that is evident throughout the Unites Arab Emirates, from lavish restaurants to opulent shopping malls and of course, luxurious resorts.
