Dubai City holidays 2020
Home to the world’s tallest building, largest indoor snow park, and biggest mall, Dubai City in the United Arab Emirates famously leads the world when it comes to superlatives. One of the glitziest and most glamorous cities on the planet, it’s got a truly out-of-this-world selection of restaurants, cafés and shops. But there’s so much more to this spectacular city than the skyscrapers and shopping. The beaches are heavenly, the souks enchanting, and you can learn all about the city’s colourful history in the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood. Plus, if you want to escape the crowds, you can go star-gazing, wildlife-watching or dune-bashing in the beautiful desert. We offer a range of hotel and holiday types in Dubai City, including all inclusive.
