We are Dubai holiday specialists and offer great deals on golf and resort holidays to this amazing destination. It has diverse cultures, magnificent hotels and a wonderful variety of cuisines. The climate is generally superb from October until April (between 25 and 35 degrees) – and between May and September the heat gets turned up and it is only suitable for serious sun-worshipper. Culturally it is a melting pot where east meets west, where old meets new. Dubai is Arabia yet with relaxed attitudes towards alcohol and attire though topless sunbathing is not acceptable and men should not go shopping bare-chested. Did we say shopping? Dubai is the ultimate ‘shop till you drop’ destination. Gold is particularly good value. Recreationally, Dubai has first class golf courses, scuba diving, sailing, windsurfing, fishing and waterskiing and the standard of presentation is top of the range. Snow skiing is also available in an amazing indoor centre. Tired of sport? You can go on desert safaris, dune driving, camel riding, trips to Bedouin villages, tours of mosques or cruise on traditional dhows. It is also easy to visit neighbouring Emirates like Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.
