Combining Arabian traditions with futuristic architecture, the UAE is truly a melting pot of cultures. Known for its luxury hotels, exquisite restaurants and exceptional shopping, UAE has something for everyone: adventurers, culture seekers and families. The desert, mountains and warm sea provide endless opportunities for nature lovers while museums and galleries trace local traditions and showcase the latest international art. Many theme parks and attractions make it an ideal destination for the whole family.
For a single centre stay in Dubai or Abu Dhabi, we recommend a minimum stay of 3 nights, and 4 nights in order to discover all aspects of the city without hurrying. If you want to combine Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the recommended minimum stay is 5 nights.
Dubai and Abu Dhabi are year round destinations. The ideal time to visit is from October to end of May, when the weather and sea temperatures are at their best. In summer, hotel rates are cheaper but temperatures and humidity are high.
