Why go to Dubai

Glitzy and glamorous, Dubai certainly knows how to impress. Whether you visit on a stopover or an extended holiday, you’ll be able to experience some of the world’s biggest and best hotels, attractions, shops, theme parks and restaurants in Dubai.

In a city that likes things supersized, one must-see attraction is the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, which has observations decks with vertigo-inducing views. You can also stay in the world’s tallest hotel, Gevora Hotel; stroll around the world’s largest natural flower garden, Dubai Miracle Garden; and indulge in some serious retail therapy in the world’s largest shopping mall, The Dubai Mall.

You’ll find more than 1,300 shops in the enormous Dubai Mall, as well as an ice-rink, Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, and restaurants galore. Other shopping options include the Mall of the Emirates, which has an indoor ski-slope with resident penguins, and traditional souks, which sell textiles, spices, perfumes and gold.

You’ll eat well on a Dubai city break too, and can choose between blow-out weekend brunch buffets, high-end fine dining establishments and simpler restaurants serving local specialities. You don’t have to spend a fortune on food in Dubai either – there are plenty of budget dining options in areas such as Deira.

As a consistently hot and sunny destination, you’ll probably want to spend a day or two by a pool or on the beach on a Dubai city break. You can also retreat to the desert on an off-road safari or by quad bike, or experience the thrills of theme parks.

While its luxurious, futuristic sheen may dazzle, Dubai has a cultural side too, whether you’d like to wander around the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood, cross Dubai Creek in a traditional abra (water taxi), cool down in a museum or spend the night at the opera.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
