Flights to the United Arab Emirates
The UAE has become a popular destination for holidaymakers over the past decade and with frequent direct flights to the UAE from all over the UK, taking a holiday in Dubai or Abu Dhabi has become fashionable, affordable and accessible.
Abu Dhabi, capital of the UAE started late in growing to become the sprawling metropolis it is today, especially compared to it's sister city Dubai.
Positioning itself as more of the cultural city in the UAE, Abu Dhabi is planning large scale investment in places like the Guggenheim and louvre. A city great for transiting too, Abu Dhabis Yas island has become a popular leisure stopover for passengers on long haul flights. The island, situated 5 mins from the airport, boasts Ferrari world, a water park, soon to be opened shopping mall and not forgetting Abu Dhabis formula one track, Yas marina circuit.
Dubai has often been known as a playground for the rich (although not always famous). With countless 5* hotels, those taking a luxury break in the UAE will be spoilt for choice.
Jumeirah Beach is a popular spot for holidaymakers to Dubai. Close proximity to the beach, bars and shopping options means you don't have to venture far to enjoy yourself.
For a truly magical stay, from Abu Dhabi, head out into the desert to the Qasr Al Sarab hotel for five star luxury amongst the peacefulness of the sand dunes.
With plenty of flights to the UAE, particularly to Dubai, it's easy to take a long holiday or even a weekend break away. Just beware that during the summer months, temperatures can reach as high as 50C so spring, autumn and winter are much better times of year to visit.
The lively city of Bangkok would often stir up thoughts of backpackers, cheap hostels and 5-star luxury? There's a lot more to this bustling city than you would realise...
