Handy stuff

Religious Periods - The holy month of Ramadan is celebrated between 28th June – 27th July 2014. During these dates there are restrictions on alcohol, food consumption and entertainment for local Muslims between sunrise and sunset when they must fast. Restrictions within hotels with international guests tend to be more relaxed, however you should be aware that the consumption of alcohol in public areas is prohibited within daylight hours and services maybe reduced in some food outlets. However at nightfall there are many lively traditional celebrations, known as Iftah, where hotels often arrange lavish buffet feasts. Whilst visitors are asked to respect these traditions it is also a great time to see the real Dubai and experience local customs and it should not impact the enjoyment of your stay.

Something different

Dubai Holidays - Originally a quiet fishing village, today's Dubai has souks or open-air marketplaces around every corner, including inside the huge Mall of the Emirates, which boasts an indoor ski slope. Beyond Dubai's beaches lie the marvels of the other Emirates that make up this fascinating country.

Ras Al Khaimah - We recommend that you include a visit to this Emirate in your itinerary. It contains all the natural beauty that the country is justifiably famous for. You can travel from the excellent beaches to the Al Jeer Mountains, with a stop to marvel at the desert on the way. The stunning fjords are found here as well, something many visitors miss because they just don't expect to see them in this country. Ras Al Khaimah borders Oman and has an ancient history that is illustrated at the museums, and by the standing ancient relics seen throughout the Emirate.

Fujairah - Leave behind the desert for a different kind of breathtaking scene. This Emirate is the only one lying on the Indian Ocean and provides excellent opportunities if SCUBA diving is one of your passions. Less desert and more stunning scenery, Fujairah tumbles from the peaks of the Hajar Mountains into a desert of beautiful sunset colours. Visit in October when the Power Boat Racing World Championships are held and enjoy the spectacle of the world’s fastest boats competing for honours.

Jumeirah Beach - Another favourite attraction is the Dubai Fountain, which is actually a series of massive fountains near downtown Dubai. The water movements are set to music and cleverly choreographed, creating a magical display, especially at night when they are lit from below. Enjoy a late-night snack or beverage at one of the many cafes and restaurants that ring Burj Khalifa Lake - sit back and take in the free show.

Jumeirah Palm - One of the sights for which Dubai holidays are most famous is the string of man-made islands just off the beach. The Palm Jumeirah was the first, and it is appropriately shaped like a palm tree surrounded by a circle of sand. Another one is named, The World, appropriately shaped like a map of the world - each “country” of which is for sale if you’d like to live there, and can afford it!

Dubai Marina - Come marvel at the largest man-made marina in the world, and view some of the most stunning yachts you'll see gathered together in one multi-billion dollar display.

Jebel Ali - This port city just south of Dubai is home to many ex-pats as well as the Jebel Ali Free Zone, providing the companies situated there with a special tax-free status. The beautiful beaches and resort hotels make this a lovely place to stay whilst on holiday in Dubai.

Desert - The deserts that once threatened everyone but the Bedouin are now very inviting. Desert safaris via Jeep, or the more sedate but grumpy camels, allow visitors to experience the beauty and the thrill of the desert. Resorts like the Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa offer luxurious services, while those who long for the excitement of the open spaces can try sand skiing or dune driving. In addition, be sure to allow enough time to view the incomparable sunsets in the desert, when it seems as if the world stops for just a few seconds. You will only then really appreciate the stunning beauty of this exceptional place.

Weather / Best time to go

Weather - can be extremely hot in the summer months; average temperature in Aug is around 41 degrees Celsius, however most hotels offer shaded pool and outdoor areas and there are many fantastic attractions which are under cover and full air-conditioned.

Seeking adventure

Hajar Mountains

A trip to the Hajar Mountains which surround Ras al Khaimah is a must and should definitely be on your to do list... They are one of the regions natural wonders!

Fujairah the Indian Emirate

Leave behind the desert for a different kind of breathtaking scene. Fujairah rolls from the Hajar Mountain in the West on to golden sands in the East.
