No, thank you
Ras al Khaimah

The region has a profusion of impeccable and unspoilt beaches where you can dive, snorkel or simply lounge in the shade. Many have water sports facilities and party animals will enjoy Dubai’s beach bars where you can dance the night away. Or perhaps take a boat trip out into the gulf of Oman for some deep-sea fishing, or a city skyline tour in Abu Dhabi. For a more authentic taste of the Middle East, why not take a traditional wooden boat or ‘Abra’ to the souks in Deira, where you can buy silks, spices, jewellery and souvenirs to take back home.

For an exciting day out, book a desert safari in a 4 x 4. This brilliantly exhilarating drive over the dunes is the ultimate experience for thrill seekers. It’s also a great day trip for all the family, where after a spot of ‘dune bashing’ you also get to try a camel ride, henna painting, or let the kids don some traditional Arabic dress. There are performances from colourful whirling dervishes and the evening is rounded off with a delicious barbecue feast under the stars.

Whether it’s a drive around Abu Dhabi’s Formula 1 Grand Prix circuit or a sun downer on the deck of a super yacht, Holidays in the Middle East give you the opportunity to experience a little of how the glitterati live. Start with some fabulous window shopping in the designer boutiques, then rent a supercar to drive around the city for a day, and finish off with a luxury pamper session at one of the region’s 7-star hotels. With impeccable service and a real taste for the high life, a Middle East holiday is the perfect place to spoil yourself rotten.

Dubai is a city where so much is possible. You can ski in the morning, go on a desert safari in the afternoon, and shop till you drop. Not forgetting to dance the night away at one of the luxury hotels! Abu Dhabi is fast becoming a sport fanatic’s paradise with its world-class golf, tennis and motor racing facilities. For less overt glitz and glamour, opt for Oman, where life is more traditionally Arabic. Admire the Omani architecture of the Grand Mosque and get lost in the souk before enjoying a sunset cocktail back at your luxury resort.

Best time to go...

Summers are long, hot and dry with temperatures reaching the mid 40’s C. At this time, locals take to the air-conditioned shopping malls, hotel lobbies and indoor facilities, as it’s simply too hot to be outside. At other times, particularly in the winter, the average temperature hovers around the mid 20’s and humidity is low, making for ideal holiday conditions.
